    Venom Question

    I was thinking of trying to use the skill venom with my dual claw nats set assassin.

    I don't understand exactly how this skill works, and didnt want to use a point to just be dissapointed.

    How long is the duration of the actual skill, before it has to be re-cast? The arreat summit lists a duration but it is ambigious if that is the skill duration or damage to monsters over x seconds.

    Venom can be used with Burst of Speed if I am not mistaken.

    I did look on this site and the arreat summit and did not find basic info about this skill. Thanks!!!

    It lasts for around 2 minutes or so IIRC, haven't been on d2 so I forget on my ww sin, but you don't really have to recast it too much to be a pain. Venom works with fade or BOS.

    The actual time it deals damage to monsters is fixed at 0.4 seconds.
    Note that Venom will -also- reduce the duration of any other poison sources you have to 0.4 seconds... effectively making those next to useless.

    So then the best thing to do is not use any posion charms and instead stick to max dmg or fire, cold and lightning dmg. I just wonder if venom can do more dmg than say 5 or so 100 dmg poison charms.

    It does alot more damage. At lvl 20 it will do about 450poison damage during 0.4 sec and +skills rises this alot.

    Btw what is you build anyway? Is it even good idea to use Venom if you have like TS+Dtail assy and so on..
