Delivers a toxic poison that does a small amount of damage over time.
The Toxic Crystal is a weapon in the Captain Outfitter.
The Crystal is composed of a pink, crystal-shaped blade attached to small jewel-studded bracelet or ring. The Captain's coat colour determines the colour of the bracelet, while the detail colour determines the colour of a line that goes around the center of the blade.
The Toxic Crystal is a handheld melee Captain Weapon, used for causing damage to opponents over a period of time. Being a Shaman weapon, the Crystal does not require any energy, but cannot be upgraded.
The Crystal's "Poison Blade" attack works by slashing the target and (apparently) injecting poison, which does little damage at the first slash but gradually weakens the target over several seconds. This means that it is more effective against creatures than against buildings or vehicles. The Crystal only causes damage to its target, unlike the Bladed Knuckles and Lightning Striker which may also hit anything else (other than allies) nearby.
The Toxic Crystal is much weaker outright than its warrior counterpart, the Bladed Knuckles. Its true power comes in its ability to combo with other Shaman attacks. Consider using Charge->Toxic Crystal->Icy Band->Swarm Magnet to keep your foe locked down and damaged.
