Tips and Details

  • The Cursed Fog reaches up to 3 platforms high, and the Cursed Lightning is able to reach 5 platforms above the enemy targeted by it, making it excellent in vertical rooms such as much of Sea of Ruin.
  • The Cursed Lightning will occur for every enemy inside the fog and will deal splash damage to any other enemies near the struck target, allowing the skill to deal high damage to grouped enemies.
  • You're able to move again mid-cast, well before the animation really finishes and the cloud even appears.
  • Due to the rate of travel, most targets will typically be struck four times.


  • Despite the skill no longer inflicting any type of poison status ailment, its name in NA still refers to it as Poisonous Cloud as opposed to most other servers, including KR, which have always referred to the skill as Dark Cloud.
    • This inconsistency carries over to its in-game description where it still refers to the cloud as a "poisonous cloud".

Old Version

Toxic's status icon
  • In the past, Poisonous Cloud used to create a green cloud that inflicts Poison, hence its name in the North American server.
    • This version had a Skill Note that inflicted a unique Toxic status effect, which had a unique status icon.
      • After the 11/07/2013 KR Patch, the unique status icon was removed and the debuff was instead indicated by a graphic color change (from green to dark green). In addition, this patch also gave this skill the ability to expand the cloud up to twice its initial size.
  • On 08/06/2015 in the Korean server, this skill was changed to inflict Curse instead of Poison.
  • For a brief period after the 07/18/2019 RE:BOOT patch, this skill was similar to its current iteration but was stationary.
