A Poisonous Interrupter utilizes the Apply Poison skill with two interruption skills. It's a double whammy, with the poison degen and your foe's disability to use skills. If you time it right, you will be a formidable foe. This build uses high Marksmanship and Expertise to use Punishing Shot and Distracting Shot.

Special Thanks to Roselan at Guild Wars Guru Forums for making the idea for this build. I changed it and modified it to how I though it would be better.
