Poison and Bleed will now be considered Ailments, just like Freeze, Shock, Ignite and Chill. This means that like the other Ailments, they aren't considered Skill Effects, and are unaffected by modifiers to Skill Effect Duration, such as the Increased Duration Support.
There are now specific modifiers to Bleeding Duration and Poison Duration in the passive tree.
Your Critical Damage Multiplier will now not influence Poison, Bleeding and Ignite damage。
Damage Multiplier for Ailments from Critical Strikes, which boosts the damage of Ignite, Poison and Bleed caused by critical strikes.
a large portion of a hit's modifiers to Critical Strike Multiplier also apply to the skill's ailment damage
most challenging bosses have always had inbuilt immunities to ailments. We're going to be removing the majority of these immunities
Modifiers to Spell Damage apply to this Skill's Damage over Time
this will be replaced by an equivalent modifier that will only affect the specific Damage over Time effect that a skill inherently applies, not any others it causes due to stats on gear or supports, such as Poison or Decay.
Damage over Time is now never considered Projectile Damage, and so is not naturally affected by modifiers to Projectile Damage.
Caustic Arrow, will gain a modifier which will allow modifiers to Projectile Damage to apply to that skill's inherent Damage over Time effect
Many other skills that were most penalized by this change, such as Essence Drain
In the Beta, Damage over Time is only considered Area Damage in cases where it's being applied in an area。
If moving out of the area means you're not taking that damage any more
This means that effects like Vortex, or the Burning Ground placed by a Fire Trap, deal Area Damage over time.
Blight skill, or a group of enemies being ignited by the hit of a Fire Trap, then that will not be considered Area Damage
In addition, Bleeding, Ignite and Poison are never considered Area Damage
Weapon Elemental Damage support have now been replaced with "Elemental Damage with Attack Skills".
