and if Gladiator's Dominance + Snake Stance + Amatoxin + a xx poison dmg in 1s and 2s ?


Gladiator's Dominance should boost Snake Stance duration to 2.6 seconds with the same DPS, so with Amatoxin that should be 4.6/5.6/6.6 seconds

Off the top of my head, the playable poison builds right now, roughly in order of power, are:

* Poison sorceress (don't use Necrolyte merc)
* Devouring Cloud druid (Scosglen farmer)
* Poison Whirlwind barbarian (Fauzt farmer, little rough in Scosglen)
* Scorpion Blade assassin (idk much about this build)
* Poison javazon (extremely fast Duncraig farmer)
* Curare pouncezon (decent farmer)

I don't know if I've seen a successful Virulence oskill (druid or pala), Pestilence necromancer, or throw barb in 2.0 yet; doesn't mean that a good build doesn't exit, just that I haven't seen them.

Hopefully that gives you some ideas.

So I have Worm tongue, Destroying Angel, Glow Skull, Scales of the Serpent Blacktongue, Angel of Death Ammy, Darkling boots, Shrine Crafted gloves with pierce
It says 26 to 35k dmg

Is this a proper Build?

Whether you're going for spell procs or weapon damage, you probably want to swap out that shield for either a
Demhe

Demhe
Maces, Scepters
Except Hammers

'ZodLew'
Runeword Level: 110
Indestructible
25% Chance to cast level 55 Infected Roots on Melee Attack
+(126 to 250) to Maximum Damage
Stun Attack
+(172 to 200)% Enhanced Damage
+(39 to 45)% to Cold Spell Damage
-(39 to 45)% to Enemy Cold Resistance
+(39 to 45)% to Poison Spell Damage
-(39 to 45)% to Enemy Poison Resistance
20% to Vitality
+(51 to 125) Mana on Striking
Flail (with 3 x 15% attack speed jewels) or a second Blacktongue. Your belt isn't great either; for spell poison, the only thing it adds is attack rating to get more procs; and for weapon poison, the extra flat poison damage reduces your duration without adding much DPS. Not sure if that's actually a problem since I think the spell procs do most of the damage on that build, but it doesn't do much for you.

If you ask over in the poison WW thread they'll probably have more specific advice.

Miasma without the upgrade constantly applies first frame poison, which stops all your poison damage over time from working.

Can't say that I know anything about Sacred 2. I think you might be lost.

Does the "VenomCloud Totem" skill a good option as a poison attack?
