    Question about 290's.

    If I fill my whole inventory up with 290's that means I'll do around 10k poison damage over 10 seconds for each hit I do with my ww barb. If I ww thru a person im dueling and hit them 3 times does that mean I'll do 30k poison damage over 10 seconds?

    poison damage resets (i.e. damage and duration start again) when another source of poison hits the already poisoned target.

    Which is the reason that poisonmancers can't stand wwsins. Or that spaming poison novas is just laggy and mana wasteful.

    so it's pretty much useless to have many poison charms on a frenzy barb?

    No, the damage just won't happen all at once. Since the full duration isn't being used.
