Does Venom negate deadly/critical strike?

No. Same goes for any other elemental attack. This misunderstanding originates from the fact that the DS/CS spark animation is being overridden by the cold/lighting/fire/poison animation.

This can be proven with the following test;


With Hero Editor, we create the following;

 A 78-79 damage claw with 100% deadly strike.

 An assassin with level 40 venom.

 An opponent with 5000 life, 0% DR and 75% poison resist.

The test is as follows; You hit the opponent and write down how many life he has lost. According to this number you can conclude if DS occured yes or no.


Physical Damage:

104 - 105

(17 - 18 PvP damage)

Poison Damage:

1075 - 1095

(45 - 46 PvP damage)

Minimum Life loss with DS/no venom:

17*2 = 34

Maximum Life loss with DS/no venom:

18*2 = 36

Minimum Life loss with DS/venom:

17*2 + 45 = 79

Maximum Life loss with DS/venom:

18*2 + 46 = 82


Hits without venom:

5000 -> 4966

34

4966 -> 4932

34

4932 -> 4896

36

4869 -> 4862

34

4862 -> 4826

36

Hits with venom:

5000 -> 4921

79

4921 -> 4841

80
