After being inspired by the "fun with poison" thread Shassa made i decided to make a poisonbuild myself. I asked for some advice in a different thread here and started playing. I used Full Ramses with dual wielded ramses scepters (+100% poison and +300% vs undead) to breeze through act2 and 3, everything, including bosses, died in one hit because of the poison. At level 27 i dropped all Ramses and started wearing greens.
Now i'm level 28 and i just killed Typhon in 2 hits, and the first hit took 80% of his hp away
Some pics just after killing typhon:
Every single item i wear is adding poison damage.
Now lets do some math:
My base poison damage from my gear and skills is 1040 dmg over 6 seconds. I have a total of +399% poison damage from my gear and skills which makes it 5190 over 6 seconds and if i use Lethal Strike the damage goes up to: 8361 over 6 seconds. (1400 damage per second)
I also have a total of +134% poison duration so that makes it:
19565 damage over 14 seconds from 1 hit with my legtip.
Apart from the poison damage i do with my weapons monsters also get poisoned when they touch me. This is caused by three desecrated prefix greens i am wearing. I could have equiped four desecrated prefix armorpieces but i found a other piece of armor that added way more +% poison damage. Base poison damage from that gear is 270 damage over 6 seconds. Add the total bonus of +399% poison damage and +134% poison duration and you end up with:
3152 damage over 14 seconds to every monster that physically touches me. That's enough to kill most smaller mobs in normal without even fighting.
I don't know if all the calculations are 100% accurate, but i do know that i do a hell of a lot poison damage. Funny fact: Killing 1 automatoi on mount olympus took longer then killing Typhon himself. Constructs really are a pain with this build.
Now off to normal IT. I wonder if Hades like poison.
