Damage over time

From Path of Exile Wiki
(Redirected from Damage Over Time)
Jump to: navigation, search

Damage over time (often refered to as DoT) is a damage inflicted continuously over a period of time. Unlike the other three damage sources, damage over time does not hit.[1]

Mechanics

All damage over time effects are a kind of debuff. A creature can have multiple applications of these debuffs of the same type but usually only the one with the highest damage per second works at any given time (except for poison where all applications stack cumulatively); this is true even in the case of effects applied by different players or sources.

For example, if two players each apply the ignite status ailment to the same target, only the higher damage per second of the two ignites will affect the target, at least until the higher fades and leaves the second ignite to become the new highest. In this context, two damage over time effects are to be considered the same only if they have the same name; a target may be affected by multiple effects that deal burning damage (such as Righteous FireRighteous FireSpell, AoE, Fire

, ignite and burning ground).

In case of an enemy being killed by damage over time while being affected by multiple DoT effects, the kill is attributed to the owner of the effect that was inflicted first.[2]

Damage scaling

The following modifiers will directly affect the damage over time;[3][4] note that some of these modifiers apply only to the DoTs whereas some may also apply to the skill that triggered it:

  • Damage over Time
  • Damage
  • [Damage Type] Damage (e.g. Physical Damage or Cold Damage)
  • [Effect] Damage (e.g. Poison Damage or Ignite Damage)
  • 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

Natively modifiers to attack damage (i.e. weapon damage, melee damage, etc.) and spell damage do not apply to damage over time effects unless specifically stated so, as observed on skills like ContagionContagionSpell, AoE, Duration, Chaos

, as that particular effect is considered a part of the buff and not a part of player's damage output. However, modifiers that increase/reduce damage taken will affect it.

Duration

Tampering with the duration of a damage over time effect will affect the total amount of damage dealt by it but not its damage per second. The exception to this is the Ignited Enemies Burn faster modifier (as seen on Dyadian DawnDyadian Dawn

), which will 'speed up' ignites inflicted by the player, increasing their damage per second at the cost of duration, leaving the total amount of damage unchanged.

Conditional modifiers

There are modifiers that can apply their effects only when a certain condition is met. Modifiers that are conditional on properties of the target do not affect damage over time because only hits are able to check someone else properties.[6][7]

Some examples:

  • Generic modifiers to damage dealt will now apply to damage over time that your character causes. Damage over time is not spell damage, nor attack damage, so modifiers specific to those types will not apply. Non-specific "increased damage" modifiers will apply to damage over time. Type-specific modifiers will apply as well. For example, "increased fire damage" modifiers will apply to fire damage over time.
