I got a weak poison that has healing properties! I play with the Requiem mod so any healing source is acceptable. But I can't find a way to poison myself. I tried to shoot an arrow upwards (and use a shield and high armor class of course), but it won't hit me.

Maybe poison some deployable weak trap? Or convert the poison into a potion, but how?

I'll accept console commands that can do the trick!

  • You can always just go into some random dungeon, and look for some insects that poison you. Or are you literally looking for a poison potion?

    @AquariusPower I did not downvote you, but a likely reason for downvotes is that the original version of the question was a bit difficult to read.

    Another reason to downvote: the question deals with a problem that nobody else is likely to experience, like "how do I kill Alduin armed only with a head of lettuce, a piece of yarn and a lesser soul gem".

    This sounds like a reasonable question. This is a role-playing game, after all. Who are we to judge if people want to play as characters that poison themselves? =) Also, OP mentioned that he is using a mod, which makes it advantageous to poison one's self. As a side note, in TES IV: Oblivion, you can poison yourself without resorting to workarounds like in Skyrim. Commented Oct 17, 2013 at 14:30

As far as I can make out the only way to do this is to apply the poison to a weapon, and then pickpocket that weapon into someone else's inventory, then provoke them to attack you.

  • I read it elsewhere too, but then, the attacker wont stop :), I tried to change ownership of the arrow but didnt work too.. Commented Oct 16, 2013 at 16:39

    @AquariusPower Give it to someone you can easily kill once you've been poisoned then.

  • but the poison has healing properties, even the first hit (with Requiem mod) may nullify the poison potion, the effect and the desired result :) Commented Oct 18, 2013 at 0:26
