UNSOLVED poison vs fire damage0 Likes/5 Replies/815 ViewsOriginal poster dragon1402 8 posts
is it just me or does fire damage do way more than poison? i used the fire weapon ability and once they were on fire they melted, i switched to poison and the damage hit at like half the speed.

@dragon1402 Fire and poison damage can do the same amount of base damage, but it’s a matter of how that damage is dealt. Obviously, fire works very fast, whereas poison kills slowly. Personally, I find that using poison for melee combat is pretty pointless, but great for stealthy range attacks. I’ve found that it’s a lot easier to take out large groups of enemies with poison rather than fire because poison lasts long enough to spread to others. Fire deals fast damage but dissipates quickly, making it better for melee attacks.

@thenorfolkian i was under impression the debuff of fire and poison lasted the same amount of time on the enemy, there has been many times i apply the fire debuff and let it kill them, about 80% on normal enemies it does, poison leaves way more enemies alive after debuff is applied. it seemed poision ticked slower and lasted the same time on the enemy thus dealing less damage.
