    Perfect emeralds on 4os polearm

    Ok, I'm planning on arming my merc with this. I will be maxing sanctuary soon. I checked that perfect ems give 100 poison dmg every 7 sec. with 4 in a weapon, will this actually give 400 poison dmg in 28 secs?

    But.. Why? If you want to do that why not put 6 of them in a 6os polearm :p

    Or, you know, make something useful like Insight

    I agree with IJ: why?

    If you're interested in poison damage, there is a really good guide somewhere. Maybe someone else who's read it recently will link to it for you.

    Re: Perfect emeralds on 4os polearm

    the reason i'm asking this is because i have 10 Pems right now & a bunch of other Pgems. I just want to make it useful & haven't got any luck on re-rolling charms & jewels either. i'm lvl62 btw. starting act4 nm. how come i level so slow?

    It will do 400 damage over 7 seconds.

    Rate per second is added among the sources. Poison length is the average time of all the sources, unless it´s a poison damage prefix and a poison damage suffix on the same item (in which case the lengths are added)


    Level 62 at the start of Act IV NM is not that low. My characters start at level 64 when I do full clears of each area once (on single player, simulating 8 unpartied players in the game).

    Or take about 10 pgms and trade yourself Ral + Tir + Tal + Sol and make an Insight :p It's 100x better than gemmed polearm

    If he plays online ladder or singleplayer rune word mod. But i concur with most here, its better with a runeword or something else that deals physical damage than a gemmed polearm.
