Poison is a support gem. It increases the poison damage of linked skills and grants them the ability to poison enemies on hit.

Skill functions and interactions

Damage - The Poison gem deals 8% of a hit's combined chaos and physical damage as chaos damage per second, and lasts 2 seconds by default.[1] Separate applications of poison can stack. Poison's damage is affected by the following stats:

  • Damage Over Time
  • Damage
  • Chaos Damage
  • Poison Damage

Furthermore, Poison "inherits" the damage type of the skill applying it. Stats affecting that skill's damage type will affect the poison damage as well. The following damage type stats also affect poison damage:[2][3][4][5]

  • Projectile Damage if applied by a Projectile skill
  • Area Damage if applied by an Area skill
  • Trap Damage if applied by a Trap
  • Mine Damage if applied by a Mine
  • Totem Damage if applied by a Totem
  • Minion Damage if applied by a Minion

For example, if Poison is linked to a projectile skill that deals 1000 damage, then Poison deals 80 damage per second. If projectile damage is increased by 10%, then the projectile skill deals 1100 damage and the poison deals (88 * 1.1) = 96,8 damage per second. In this way, the poison damage double dips from changes in these stats.

Skill Effect Duration - Stats that modify skill effect duration will apply to the poison duration, even if the skill does not have the "Duration" gem tag.[2]

Note - Enemies killed by the Poison DoT are always credited to the player, even if another source belonging to the player applied the Poison, and even if the player cannot deal damage themselves (such as with the Ancestral Bond keystone passive).
