Poisons form the backbone of a Death Hand's arsenal. Death Hands have a powerful array of skills which involve their knowledge of poisons, and they are particularly adept at facing a large number of foes. For this reason, they are most often found lending their support to a group of their allies.

By consuming different potions the Death Hand can use his body to develop a lethal fighting style that can deal a lot of damage with an added damage over time (DoT) component to one or more targets.

“We’re the guys in the back. Or the front. Or on someone’s back. It doesn’t matter, really. We get in, do our stuff and soften up the competition. Then we let the others do their thing and maybe help them out even. We’re great in groups. Alone though…Well, you need to watch out. Poisoning you opponents is dead handy, but if you can’t last as long as your poison works it’s pretty pointless, you know. Everything’s better in a group. Really.” – Master Deathhand Nhiana Flammeon, The Academy, Hawksmouth
