    + poison skill items

    I posted this question on the community forum as well. but i thought i would also post it here, since the necro community are the poison masters

    Lets say your poison dagger skill does 5229 damage over 9.6 seconds (fully synergized). Now lests say you get a hold of a 50% bramble. the damage now goes up to 7842.5 over 9.6 seconds. NOW lets say you get trang's gloves. My question is does the 25% to poison skill damage apply to the 5229 BASE poison damage? or to the 7842.5 I got from Bramble? Thanks in advance.

    The base fully synergized amount. Not the post Bramble amount. +%damage still typically beats +skills because that +25% includes all the synergies whereas the +1 only cranks the skill level up a bit.

    I'm not sure if this will make this easier to understand, +% to skill damage items work EXACTLY like elemental mastery enhanced damage. So thus, the two sources of +% poison skill damage would work together, leaving you with 75% enhanced poison skill damage.

    yup. you'll get 75% ed.

    also the order of importance for psn gear:

    1. -%psn resist
    2. +% psn ed
