Will the Adornments that add damage to spells enhance our Poison damage considering it's treated as a spell?

The only reason i ask is cuz i know there are poison damage enhancements on few items and some Symbol adornments.

ADD: on the same note will our poison procs possable trigger items that go off of Hostle spell casting?

A few simple tests showed for me that the +25 to spell damage adornment (scintillating occult stitching) was increasing proc'd poison damage.

now. the real question is will this increase dps enough to not use the aornments that would go in thos slots,

i know 10 dps or 1% crits on the neck wouldn;t be replaced

 but the 14agi on the hands might be a good target, we don;t use symbols so can't put it there,

is there a wrist slot +dmg increase?

you can get +14 strength on wrist items. the only slot with a + dps is neck. you also can't adorn multi slot items and equip them anywhere anymore which is too bad. the + spell dmg does make poisons hit harder and with the hand slot it might well be the best available option. the only other thing i'd even consider would be the range crit chance but +14 agi certainly isn't doing anything for us.

I never thought of trying it, I'll test it during raids on the weekend. I did run a quick test to see if it'd affect procs and the perma proc on Maestro's Flame was unaffected though. =/

Interesting. A guildie of mine did some research/testing and told me it would not increase my poison damage. This was about a month ago though, so its very possible it changed. Guess i'll have to get me an Occult Stitching and find out for myself!

I tested with a grey triple up with my nemesis gloves with the occult stitching adornment, and my gaunts of cunning which have no adornment.  When wearing the nemesis gloves, it was a consistent ~25 higher.

Is it +25 damage to just the initial poison dmg, or to every tick?  Or is it normalized by having +25 divided by the number of ticks?  Just trying to get a sense of how much this really helps, as those fabled adornments are quite costly.

I've been using them for a while. It will spread out over the whole dmg amount if it's not instant. It's +25 total always. It's added after modifiers like your INT. It may also add to Mark, I'm not sure.

with hemo the first tick is +25 , subsequent ticks are +5. if it reprocs the initial hit is +25 again. despite not being 25 per hit it's still the best adornment for the hand slot.

we can use aITEM 1952703414 1152227156:Symbol of Blackscale/a (second/ranged for slots) for a symbol, crappy for a raider but might be nice if you're more (casual) grouper and dont utilise your bow much =P, also Magi's shielding (EoF signature, but second slot only).

I would check the damage rating for in the ability window (examine ability).

I have a paly who had the +40 heal, and when I equipped/unequipped the item... the numbers change if you refresh the window.

The question I have is what does "up to..." mean?

What does that mean?  It always seems to be consistent, I was getting about +25 to my heals.  What makes it higher?  It doesn't appear to be random, so either there is something that makes it higher, or its decieving when up to +40 really means +25.

all the +heals and spell dmg are normalized on a 3 sec cast. so if you have a + 40 heal and a spell that has a 3 sec cast it does the full amount, if you have one the is a 1.5 sec cast you get 20.
