  • Saryn imbues all her weapons with potent toxins for 20 / 25 / 35 / 45 seconds, dealing an extra hit for 20% / 24% / 26% / 30% of the weapon's total damage as DmgToxinSmall64.png Toxin damage (doubled for melee weapons), which has a guaranteed DmgToxinSmall64.png Toxin proc on every strike.
    • Damage bonus is affected by Ability Strength.
    • Duration is affected by Ability Duration.
    • Toxic Lash adds an extra DmgToxinSmall64.png Toxin attack that scales with weapon damage on hit, before health and armor resistances. This extra hit has a guaranteed chance to proc DmgToxinSmall64.png Toxin.
      • For example, an unmodded weapon that hits for 200 damage with a Rank 3 Toxic Lash and a Rank 5 Mod TT 20px.png Intensify, Toxic Lash will deal: 200 × 0.3 × 1.3 = 78 DmgToxinSmall64.png Toxin damage which ticks for 78 × 0.5 = 39 DmgToxinSmall64.png Toxin damage per second.
      • DmgToxinSmall64.png Toxin mods on your weapon will apply their toxin mod multiplier to Toxic Lash's DmgToxinSmall64.png Toxin ticks, regardless if they are combined into other elements.
      • Extra DmgToxinSmall64.png Toxin damage does not combine with weapon elements.
      • Faction Damage Mods, after first applying to your weapon, will multiply Toxic Lash's hit a second time, and multiply it's DmgToxinSmall64.png Toxin ticks a third time. Effectively triple-dipping.
      • Status Duration Mods and Saryn's own passive affect the duration of the DmgToxinSmall64.png Toxin proc.
      • Most weapon hits will trigger a Toxic Lash attack, including Mod TT 20px.png Acid Shells and Mod TT 20px.png Concealed Explosives, but not Mod TT 20px.png Bursting Mass or Pathocyst.png Pathocyst's maggots.
      • Damage is affected by Ancient Disruptor auras and other enemies that reduce ability damage, unlike other weapon buffing skills.
    • Cast animation of ~1 second is affected by Mod TT 20px.png Natural Talent or Mod TT 20px.png Speed Drift.
      • Saryn is immune to crowd control during the cast animation.
  • Casting Toxic Lash is a one-handed action that can be done while performing many actions without interrupting them, including reloading, charging, shooting, maneuvering, and while on a zipline.
    • Can be recast to refresh its duration.
  • Ability Synergy:
    • Toxic Lash can make Spores130xDark.png Spores burst with every attack, even without direct hits.
    • Hitting a spore while Toxic Lash is active applies an additional DmgToxinSmall64.png Toxin proc.

Tips & Tricks
  • Toxic Lash is an invaluable ability for players who were not able to collect a Melee Toxin mod or not capable of equipping such on Melee weapons, in which the ability becomes a suitable replacement for those in need of direct health damage.
  • Toxix Lash's damage takes elemental mods and buffs like Mod TT 20px.png Venom Dose into account, even on damage instances normally unaffected by elemental mods, such as the radial damage of slam attacks, explode on death mods such as Mod TT 20px.png Acid Shells, and mods like Mod TT 20px.png Concealed Explosives. This makes it possible for them to deal vastly more damage than normal through Toxic Lash, which is especially useful for CrpHammer.png Arca Titron, TenetExec.png Tenet Exec, and GrnDBSG.png Sobek. (Possibly a bug.)
