Usage Strategies

  • Venom has some synergy with Blade Fury modded for poison damage. It can boost the chance for poisoning and also the poison damage if the Cruelty mod is chosen.
  • Otherwise Venom will mainly be of use to a weapon using Assassin. Socketing a Jewel of Plague in a weapon will increase the usefulness of this buff.
  • Even if not focusing on Poison damage, the Assassin can get a lot of good use out of Venom because it boosts all weapon damage, and can be modded to improve attack and defense.
  • The chance to poison will reach 100% at max CA level 200. With the Taint mod it will reach 100% at CA level 100. It can reach 100% even sooner using the Damage Lore skill and item modifiers.
