Slow Poison is a clerical healing spell in ADOM. It allows the caster to dilute and eventually remove poisoning.

As its name implies, Slow Poison lessens poisoning effects induced on the caster. Multiple castings will be often required to completely negate all poisoning.

Note that potion of cure poison is more potent than the spell as it always completely removes all poisoning.


Slow Poison seems to become more potent with increased proficiency.
