Nope. It scales to the WDM no matter what. Just tested it again on normal attack/HoZ/Magnetic Field and Curare has a different DPS with each skill (much more with HoZ and much less with MF). Takedown is 50% WD and Pounce nova 60%, one is direct and the other indirect but they do similar amounts of poison DPS. Normal attack and throw are both 100% WD and they do the same poison DPS.

What's happening with Pounce is that the direct hit is doing 100% WD and the nova is doing 60%. The Curare damage is being REDUCED on the nova, not increased by melee. Which means your damage is way lower than you might think.

You are probably confusing this with when %spell damage boosts passive ele damage. That only works on melee hits.

Edit:
Also the old LFAQ talks about this:

Hey i have a problem either with my Pouncezon or just with my Character.
When i press Pounce it does the attack but my charater doesnt move and the "nova" seems to not hit a damn thing.
If anyone can help me out i would highly appreciate it.

Yes, Wordel is right, I have a problem with pouncezon's pounce too, my character teleports to the target but nova stays in the same spot from which i jumped on monsters, and as this person said, I dont hit a damn thing. Skill deals no damage, but unless you warp to enemies, who are very close, then nova deals damage.

Pounce had that issue since forever, but one of them modders denied it or rather said he wasn‘t able to recreate that bug.

I personally think that issue arises when you get hit or attacked while you‘re pouncing on an enemy, letting the game think the hit animation was played but is still locked in the attack animation, basically never showing the hit animation. But that‘s just my guess and it‘s 100% not scientific.

The only thing you can do to avoid this issue is getting lots of attack speed, so your attack is faster than the enemies can attack you. And of course defense.

Its not like i dont do any damage GH works just fine.
Let me explain.
I press Pounce -> my character stands on his point -> "nova" animation happens -> no damage is dealt exept for realy close enemys.
GH works damage whise but when i walk over those red thingis to get fury i dont get anything.
I dont want to replay all of my character cuz it may be bugged. If anyone has a different idea lemme know please.

I‘m not willing to post the exact same answer again. I know what you were talking about. That issue existed since forever. Get ias.

As for the red thingys: their Hitbox is extremely small and sometimes not where the animation shows. Also a Known bug, but we can just wait for that to be fixed.

Never mind i fixed it. And not with attack speed.
It was realy just bugged for me. I figuered im gonna die and then see if that changes anything. And it did for some reason.
Now everything is back to normal.
Thanks for your suggestions anyway tho :3
