Other than the enhancement poison shot, is the only way to contaminate enemies via casting? Still trying to work out my alchemist build details still, is there a way for a melee/ranged VC to strip poison immunity from mobs other than the 3rd tier of poison shot?

T4:
Envenom the Heart: While your Poisoned Coating is active, hitting enemies that are immune to Poisons or Poison Damage makes them vulnerable to Poisons and Poison Damage for 12 seconds. Creatures you hit that are not immune to Poisons take 15% more Poison damage for a while. Does not work on bosses.

The wiki has not been updated, Envenom the Heart does not exist in the game, it is now Venom Affinity II which gives poison SP and +1 ref saves at tier 3 :(

Venom's Grip, the Vile Chemist Core Capstone, no longer lists +2 Poisoned Coating dice it wasn't granting.
Vile Chemist's Envenom the Heart is now Venom Affinity II: +3/6/10 Poison Spell Power. (It no longer grants Poison Vulnerability).

I actually pulled that out of the release notes. Looks like SSG doesn't even know what they put in game.

I had assumed (incorrectly) that since the release notes for U45 had Envenom the Heart, SSG must have reverted it back to that version of the ability.

Edit: I wonder if SSG even knows which version of the enhancement tree is actually in the game...

I know right, the only way I can say that it does not exist unequivocally is that I am looking at the live enhancement tree on my character in game. Maybe Envenom the Heart is back on the version with the old guild airship teleporter :)
