Hi! I wanted to know how the venon morphs from the Dragonknights skills enters into the The Elder Scrolls lore...
I did a research and found no mention of Dragons using "venon shouts" or actually "spitting venon" or being poisonous, exept the descriptions of the following ESO skills:
Venomous Claw: Rake an enemy with your claw, dealing poison damage. The poison seeps into the enemy and increases the damage the longer it lasts;
Noxious Breath: Exhale a corrosive blast, dealing poison damage and reducing an enemy armor;
Green Dragon Blood: (It has no special description, but it describes the blood of the dragon being "green");
Corrosive Armor: Oxidize the "green dragon" blood in your veins ("green blood" from the skill above), limiting income damage, damage nearby enemies with poison and making atacks ignore enemy armor.
There are non-canon information that the Tsaesci (who created the "dragonknight martial arts") learned those "dragon-like" techniques from the dragons themselves; Or that they ate dragons and mimicked them (hence the dragon wings and spikes, maybe their regeneration too).
The only things that could make sense, are that the Tsaesci are reptilian/serpentine folk (controversial), and the fact that the dragons are actual reptiles, proved at TES V, as you encounter the Revered Dragons and the Serpentine Dragons, although the most common dragons are also reptilian. But still no venon/poison/disease...
I know ESO is canon, but should I consider the skills and their descriptions and mechanics canon as well?
(Also, have I posted in the right forum? Or should I post on General, or other?)
Sorry for the english!
Glory for the Pact!
