Snake Stance Barb Questions

Post by Traprat on Sun Jun 01, 2014 11:04 pm

Hi Guyz,

just a couple of questions:

How do i improve Snake Stance Dmg?

+Skills, +x psn dmg over y time and -100 Resis is what i know of.

What does Amatoxin do exactly? Is it added with Snake Stance?^^

Which Skills to use early game, middle game and late game with snake stance?


Sor seems cool, earthquake too. Rebound and Overkill, well im unsure about those.

Any gear suggestions? (early and late game)

I thought of hellmaw for melee + sots.

Early game... no idea.

Thx all!

Snake stance is not affected by +% poison duration supposedly.

Snake stance and amatoxin act as item poison damage. The way they work together is you add their damage per second and then average the duration. The total damage is then added dps*averaged duration. Amatoxin is a weaker curare clone but can be a decent way to power up snake stance further as you add it directly to the dps of snake stance. Beware going too high of a level with snake stance. It may just be a display bug but I've noticed that after a certain level in snake stance, further +skills cause the damage to decrease on the skill description.

Stampede and SoR make good poison spreaders because of their high weapon damage modifiers.

For more about poison damage see here.

Does anyone know any dps info on amatoxin? It's always said 1/4 of curare but curare has since been buffed and changed quite a bit.

Why are you guys giving him negative cookies, it's a good post/thread. Even though he's the "Negative Cookie Man" he doesn't deserve it for this lol.

You can increase Snake Stance poison damage by investing in Eagle Stance (read their description).
-199% enemy posion resistance will help even more with some monsters that have poison resistance above 0%.

Also: Docs ( http://mxl.vn.cz/doc/ ) --> Concepts --> Poison Damage Explained
^ this/Ouchy's post will probably clear up some things. this is pretty much a copy of the link/post Ouchy posted.

The obvious answers to skills that spread SS poison are thunderslam and thundergod, but that's a given. WDM missile procs are also a good way to spread it I guess.

Late game people usually mention the Pitlord's Pendulum axe.

Awesome thanks! That would actually be quite well worth it on a solarion assuming you can get it to around lvl 35-40 ish.

Big ups for putting the poison info in the docs. The thread seems to have all but vanished otherwise.

In my opinion, the damage of snake stance is quite meh when compared to the dps potential of the other stances. The slow is where snake stance proves its worth.

Yeah it is (except vs bear and wolf) but it's probably the closest you can get to the oldschool lazydin (which I miss dearly). No real passive spreader though. Maybe a javazon with curare and war spirit would work?

The great thing is that all you really need is 50% slow (anymore and you are just butt-raping the poor monsters) and that can be achieved with a Magnet Rock on switch + modest investment in SS.
