So i've been leveling up an Assassin over the past few months and hit 90 a week or so ago. 

I'm at about 130 AA or so and i'm looking through the AA tree.  On the poisoin side on on the Assassin Tree, it seems like we're being pushed towards Hemotoxin vs Caustic, and I see an AA that doubles the trigger percentages of poisoins.

I'm just wondering if there is any actual benefit to using Hemotixin if you've got that AA, since poisons should be triggering on average about once every 6 seconds, and so far as i'm aware, it doesn't stack with itself.

I'm honestly kind of curious about this myself as I just got the ability.

With the DoV NDA lifted, I think we can officially say that poisons don't matter anymore.  Use what you want, use nothing at all, put points in hemo if you really want to in order to get frontload, but it really doesn't matter. The only use for poisons now is if you have power issues and need mental breach.

Now, your toxins buff that you can put on someone else is still very nice, so be sure to max that out.  One of these days the devs will decide "hey predators and rogues are supposed to be using poisons, what's up" and then they'll realize they need to crit and benefit from potency again.  Until then, save your money.

yea one of your best usages for AA is in the velious tree, the Double-Hit one (costs 2 each), basically makes all your main stealth arts do damage twice (2x assassinate, 2x eviscerate, 2x jug slice, 2x masked strike, 2x ambush)
