Damage over Time effects are status effects that are applied to a target, reducing their Health until the effect expires or is removed. In Pirates Online, DoT effects cannot reduce a target's health to zero, leaving it at 1 health point. Several skills can inflict DoT. Some Weapon Skills can inflict DoT as well. There are several different DoT conditions:


Poisons are substances either from a creature's bite or sting, or from venom applied to bullets or blades. Pirates can poison an enemy with the Adder Dagger skill or the Venom Shot Pistol Skill.
