Dot = damage over time. No it's not. It's just 35 poison damage, delivered each strike, full up-front.

  if thats the case why do  i see dmg every time on each slash?

and wiki has it listed as poison dmg  and in the same category as the torid and acrid which  are also DOT.

hmm?

DOT =/= Poison

 

Just because many poison attacks happen to do DoT does not mean that poison has to do DOT. It's just coincidence.

Poison damage is nothing special. It is a damage type, like Impact, Bullet or Laser, except that it is one of the four damage types to ignore armor. Contagion is not a DoT. All it does is add poison damage to your melee strikes. Accordingly, the Dual Ichor just deals 35 poison damage per slash. If you want to test whether it has a DoT, go to an enemy, slash it once, and wait. If you see more number popups from the enemy, then it is DoT.

 

All you're seeing is a poisonous tint to their body. It's the same as burning or electrocuting an enemy. They're not actually taking fire/electric damage over time. It's just an effect.
