A Venom Gland is a healing Item introduced in the Shipwrecked DLC. It is used for crafting items such as the Anti Venom, as well as poisoned Weapons. Venom Glands can also be directly consumed to cure the Poison effect. Consuming a Venom Gland to cure poison deals up to 75 poison damage, however this damage will not kill the player character. If the player character has less than 80 Health left, Venom Gland will only deal enough damage, if at all, to reduce the remaining health to a minimum of 5. Consuming the Venom Gland while having less than 5 health will not increase the health.
Venom Glands are also included in the Hamlet DLC where they can be crafted in the Refine Tab by using 3 Poison Dartfrog Legs. They also have a chance to drop from Scorpions and Poison Dartfrogs. Wormwood requires Venom Glands to craft Poison Balm.
- In Shipwrecked, one of the safest and most efficient ways to farm Venom Glands is by luring Sea Hounds or Crocodogs into a group of Stink Rays and then leaving. Most, if not all, of the Stink Rays will be killed, and when the player returns, they will find multiple Venom Glands floating in the ocean. This method removes the chance of being poisoned while fighting venomous creatures, and gives the player multiple glands that can be kept on hand for crafting Anti Venom.
- Due to Maxwell's low health, it is advised to craft an Anti Venom, instead of ingesting a Venom Gland.
