    does venom not stack with your poison charms or something? or does it not show?

    you must have a lot of newb 290s.

    and yes, it does stack with poison, but because venom fixes your poison dmg at .4 frames ALL poison dmg is reduced to = .4 frames. the dmg is also reduced.

    so a 100 pdsc will add 100 poison dmg without venom on over x (5?) seconds
    a 100 pd sc /w venom on will do 10~ poison dmg over .4 seconds.

    if you understand that, im not good at explaining things.

    In other words, either you stack poison charms or stick with Venom. You can't go both. I prefer Venom as it reacts faster...as in way faster.

    Stack with AR/Life/Shadow Charms instead of poison charms if you're gonna use Venom.

    wait wait wait ..

    from what Las-Vegas puts .. psn charms WILL stack with venom .. but it is compressed so that it will be .4 seconds.

    then Voide says psn charms do not stack .. so which is it?

    they do stack, but they add like 8 poison dmg so its not really doing anything.

    venom is much better than poison charms, and not considered BM because it is a skill.

    +1 shadow skills > 3 poison sc's. A shadow skiller adds 30 poison dmg @ higher lvls , 10% AR , 4% ed , 0.2 more sec swirl duration from MB , more WB , a better SM.

    3 * 290 newb charms add 33 poison dmg.

    Not a hard choice if you know how it works.
