The Poisoner’s Robe is found in Blighted Village during Act 1. Blighted Village is between Emerald Grove and the Goblin Camp and is overrun by Absolute followers. When players first enter Blighted Village, they can start a fight or avoid one, depending on their choices.

Once past the entrance, players can explore Blighted Village. Look for a well near the center next to the Waypoint to find the Poisoner’s Robe. Players must approach the well and interact with it. Then, there’s an investigation check that requires a 10 to pass. Passing reveals there’s a small light at the bottom of the well.

Go ahead and climb down the bucket to continue. The well leads to an underground cave covered in spider webs. Players will find poisonous enemies, including giant spiders, so be wary. Before going in too deep, players can duck off to the first room on the left and pick up the Spiderstep Boots from a chest inside. The Spiderstep Boots make the wearer immune to becoming Enwebed, and webbed surfaces don’t affect movement speed.

Players have two options to move forward. First, if they have a companion with high stealth, they can ungroup them and sneak further into the cave to pursue the Poisoner’s Robe. The Poisoner’s Robe is found on a matriarch spider called the Phase Spider Matriarch, located at the back of the cave. If players manage to sneak close enough without being spotted, they can pickpocket her and steal the Robe.

Of course, players can fight their way through. After entering the first area, four enemies wait for them. They mainly use poison attacks and webbing, so using Antidotes and the Spiderstep Boots will grant players a slight advantage.

The Phase Spider Matriarch mainly uses a teleportation spell, a wrath spell, and poison attacks. She can also approach the Phase Spider egg cloisters throughout the room and hatch them to add more enemies to the fight.

Destroy the egg clusters before engaging in combat to prevent her from hatching them.

If the spiders appear on any web bridges, players can destroy them using a ranged attack. The spiders will take a large amount of fall damage. Using the environment during this fight is wise to avoid getting overwhelmed. Once the Phase Spider Matriarch is down, players can loot her and pick up the Poisoner’s Robe.

The Poisoner’s Robe is an uncommon clothing item with an AC of 10. The wearer also gains the ability Poison Trails and deals an additional one to four Poison Damage when a poison spell is cast.
