<p>Hey guys, I've just returned after about a year and have a few questions (as I just started to raid again).</p><p>I've been looking at the differences between Hemotoxin and Caustic poisons.  I keep seeing training dummy parses where Hemotoxin will out-dps Caustic every single time.  I've calculated the differences between the two:</p><p>Focused Caustic = 4.9 PPM @ 1161 damage per proc (poison mastery) = 94.815 dpsFocused Hemotoxin = 4.9 PPM @ 523 damage per proc (poison mastery) every 4 seconds = 130.75dps</p><p>Every single parse I've done on a training dummy backs this up.  However, from the different posts I've seen, people recommend going with caustic.  Is this because of raid buffs that increase the PPM (procs per minute)?</p><p>Also, is it actually worth it to get Poison Mastery in the Shadows tree since poison seems to do so little DPS and doesn't seem to crit?</p><p>Another thing that I've seen is that a lot of raid mobs seem to be ignoring traumatic swipe.  Is it still useful to go all the way down this tree?</p><p>Thanks!</p>
