Notes:

  • Stacks with lifesteal Unique Attack Modifiers.
  • The damage cannot be fatal.
  • The damage ticks will break restorative effects such as bottle, salve, clarity.
  • However, this is a bug, as these effects should only be dispelled by damage greater than or equal to 20 before reductions, making orb of venom an exception to this "rule". *
