    Rabies damage inaccurate wtf...

    I made my first rabies druid the other day and am now 70 in nightmare.

    My problem is that rabies is not doing nearly as much damage as it says it should. Im at about 10k dmg over 15 seconds, but monsters with only 1500 hitpoints survive the ENTIRE length of the poison. Even if it were resistive it still should die. How the hell is this possible? And yes im sure rabies is on the targets.

    I've looked everywhere for answers but cant find any. Very frustrating. Im trying to find out if there is some game mechanic that im not aware of.

    Do you have ANY other source of poison damage? Gear? Charms? CtC Venom? Multiple sources of poison damage can screw each other up very sneakily

    Does your merc have any poison damage? Are you using Poison creeper? Perhaps your poison damage is being overwritten

    What monster's not dying that you think should? Monsters with over 85% Poison Resist and 1500 HPs would be able to survive one entire Rabies cycle

    Post this in the druid section, you will most probably get more help and answers.

    I actually have a ton of other poison sources, from my weapon and charms. How would it screw it up?

    I'm also wondering if there are global reductions on poison damage in hell and nightmare not counting resists.

    Additional poison sources might reduce poison length and thus reduce total damage. Poison damage doesn't simply add up. Apart from searching the druid forum, you can google for "The Tao of Poison" (a guide about how poison works) or look for it in the statistics forum.
