When a weapon with Poison Trigger has a Contact Poison applied, the wielder may choose on which weapon swing to release the Poison (instead of it automatically invoking on the next weapon swing). Once a character activates a Contact Poison, it is considered used even if the character stops swinging for its effect before it lands or resolves. This affects any Contact Poisons applied to the weapon.

For Example: Dantris has a dagger with the Poison Trigger Ritual. He applies an Enfeeble Contact Poison to the weapon, following all the standard rules. Instead of calling '1 Poison Enfeeble' on the first swing, he waits until he's sure he's cut through his opponent's armor before delivering the wicked poison on his dagger.

This Ritual requires 4 reagents as listed on the scroll.
