Feats and items for improving poison


Advice


Pathfinder Card Game Subscriber

I've got an NPC level 11 alchemist (vivisectionist) villain for my campaign that specializes in poison. I've already given him the appropriate discoveries (concentrate poison, sticky poison, [maybe] poison conversion), but haven't selected all his feats or magic items. Are there any feats or magic items that can improve the effectiveness of poison? All Paizo please as I'm not really using 3rd party stuff.


Are you delivering poison with a manufactured weapon or natural attacks?

Here are the only items I know of:
Poisoner's Gloves for delivering poison or extracts (detonate could be fun if you can get away fast enough)
Lessor Poisoner's Jacket gets you a few doses of poison a day

Malignant Poison would be good as many of the poison DCs are low

He's using dagger(s) (haven't decided if he's going to dual-wield or not) due to having a high dex; I gave him Weapon Finesse.

Good catch on malignant poison; I'm going to give him that for sure.


Check out the Belt, serpent

The human alternate racial trait Eye for Talent lets you add +2 to one of a pet's stats. [pet = familiar, animal companion, cohort, etc.] Pick the stat controlling the DC of the poison, for a +1 to the DC. This assumes you are using the pet's poison. You can also add a belt (or headband) to up that stat, for up to +3 DC. If you can apply a size change, it can affect some stats, and if it affects the poison stat, give a bonus. The bestiary also has a feat (Ability Focus) that gives +2 DC if you can get the creature to have it. If you create a homunculus, you can give it extra hit die, and so boost it's Con and thus its poison DC.
