A poisoned cannibal

Poison is an ailment that deals chaos damage over time to the affected target.[1]

Mechanics

A hit of damage that has a chance to poison is capable of inflicting poison. Only physical and chaos damage are able to inflict poison.[2]

Poison is a cumulatively stacking debuff. Each application—or 'stack'—of poison remains present on the target dealing chaos damage over time until it runs its course.[2] There is no limit to the number of poison stacks a target can have.[1] A single "hit" can apply a maximum of one poison stack, therefore having more than 100% chance to poison is redundant.[3]

Damage

The base damage per second dealt by a given application of poison equals 20% of the combined physical and chaos damage of the base damage dealt which applied that particular instance of poison.[4]

As an ailment modifier, stats modifying spell damage and attack damage do not apply to poison, nor damage modifers that are only affected by the skill.

The following modifiers will directly affect the damage of poison:

  • Damage
  • Damage over Time
  • Chaos Damage
  • Poison Damage

Trap, mine, minion or totem damage modifiers will also affect the damage of poison if it is applied by a trap, a mine, a minion or a totem respectively.

Version history

Version Changes
3.0.0
  • Skills calculate their Ignite, Poison or Bleed values as a separate damage value, taken straight from the base and added damage of the skill. This gives skills that deal fire damage a minimum and maximum Ignite Damage per Second value that is rolled on Ignites that the skill causes. Poison, Bleed and Ignite damage values are based on the base damage of the skill, and then affected by appropriate damage modifiers. Some damage modifiers affect both the hit and the Ignite, Poison or Bleed, while some only affect one.
  • Bleeding and Poison are now both considered 'Ailments'. This means their durations are only affected by increased bleeding/poison duration modifiers, and the new ailment duration modifier (they are not elemental ailments, so are not affected by the existing modifier to elemental ailments).
2.4.0
  • Poison damage reduce to 8% of Physical and Chaos damage as Chaos Damage for 2 seconds (down from 10%).
2.1.0
  • Rather than dealing the damage of the highest hit (as Ignite does), poison can now have multiple stacks. This means that every hit counts, rather than just the occasional big hit. This also lets it scale much better towards end-game, and differentiates it from other damage-over-time effects.
  • Poison can now only be applied by Chaos and Physical damage. This is for both thematic reasons, and to have it act as a reward for builds that have less of a focus on auras and elemental supports for damage boosts.
  • These poison changes are also reflected in monsters.
