    need help from the stats gurus figuring poison charm dmg

    burned through about 500 PGems today rerolling small charms and got 3 good ones

    Toxic Small Charm of Venom
    Keep in Inventory to Gain Bonus
    Required Level: 55
    Item Version: 1.10 Expansion
    Item Level: 81
    Fingerprint: 0x9b8295c4
    +214 poison damage over 9 seconds

    Septic Small Charm of Anthrax
    Keep in Inventory to Gain Bonus
    Required Level: 36
    Item Version: 1.10 Expansion
    Item Level: 85

    +121 poison damage over 9 seconds

    Foul Small Charm of Anthrax
    Keep in Inventory to Gain Bonus

    Item Version: 1.10 Expansion
    Item Level: 70
    Fingerprint: 0x2f217b0d

    I am pretty sure though, that the stated damage is incorrect. could someone please tell me what the exact damage per frame is for each of the charms 2 mods?

    Toxic Small Charm of Venom = 244/256 poison damage per frame, 225 frames.
    Septic Small Charm of Anthrax = 138/256 poison damage per frame, 225 frames.
    Foul Small Charm of Anthrax = 214/256 poison damage per frame, 250 frames.
    Pestilent Small Charm of Anthrax = 385/256 poison damage per frame, 300 frames.

    The game show poison damage as “+X poison damage over Y seconds”,
    Where Y=<number of poison damage frames>/25,
    X=<damage per frame>*Y*25.

    Real damage:
    Toxic Small Charm of Venom = 214.45
    Septic Small Charm of Anthrax = 121.29
    Foul Small Charm of Anthrax = 208.98
    Pestilent Small Charm of Anthrax = 451.17

    thanks. seems like the total damage listed is pretty accurate, which seemed odd to me since 'toxic' is 100/5 by itself and 'of venom' is only 15/4 so I don't see how together that gives 214/9. looks like it's adding the time instead of averaging it.

    just using quick rounding it's 20 per second for toxic and 3.75 per second for of venom, so that's 23.75 per second for (5+4)/2 seconds=23.75 per 4.5 seconds=106 total damage

    could you break down the 2 individual mods on each so I can figure out which combinations work best?

    OK. But you probably already know that the best combination is Pestilent Small Charm of Anthrax anyway.

    The following information is for Small Charms only.
    Damage is in 1/256 of life.
    Duration is in frames. The is 25 frames in a second.

    Code:
    Affix       Damage    Duration
    
    Septic          52          75
    Foul           128         100
    Toxic          205         125
    Pestilent      299         150
    of Blight       21          75
    of Venom        39         100
    of Pestilence   52         125
    of Anthrax      86         150
    
    For item with two poison damage affixes the game just adds damage and duration of affixes.
    For example:
    Toxic SC of Venom.
    Damage per frame: (205+39)/256 = 244/256
    Frames: 125+100 = 225
    Display:
    (244/256)*225 poison damage over 225/25 seconds
    =>
    214 poison damage over 9 seconds.

    well, yeah, but I just take what the game gives me. it's not like I can manufacture the darn things. :lol:

    The Tao of Poison indicates that each affix is treated as a seperate source, thus durations would be averaged. is this not correct then? the displayed damge seems to be correct then if they are just added.

    You read it inattentively, aren’t you?
    This guide is one of the best guides for 1.09. Unfortunately it is outdated now since we got 1.10. :(
