Does this stack with itself?

If I launch multiple clouds, will the creatures within the clouds take damage from all of them? --AnnanFay (talk) 20:50, 27 January 2013 (UTC)

It looks like the clouds don't directly deal damage, but rather they apply a poison debuff to the enemy. Only one of these poison debuffs can be on an enemy at a given time, and repeated applications refresh the duration but do not add additional damage to the debuff. I unsure whether the highest damage debuff will take precedence when the debuff is refreshed (I assume it would). Adalace (talk) 19:44, 24 February 2013 (UTC)
The cloud is an AoE that deals Chaos Damage per Second and lasts for a number of seconds. it is not poison, and poison passives will have no effect on the amount of Chaos Damage per Second from this skill. Damage from multiple clouds don't stack, but firing twice at the same spot will create a new AoE effect for the entire duration. In effect it will "refresh" the debuff cloud. --Decimus2000 (talk) --datetime
You're responding to a post from 2013 that gave correct information at the time it was written. Up until version 2.1.0 the cloud was, in fact, poison. —Vini (t|c) 20:12, 22 February 2016 (UTC)

New arrow w/ Poison

So how do Poison passive skills interact with this skill? Does the cloud scale with "Increased Damage with Poison"? --ThemJohns (talk) 02:16, 14 December 2015 (UTC)

They don't. Caustic Arrow or the caustic cloud that it produces does not inflict poison. —Vini (t|c) 02:57, 14 December 2015 (UTC)

Caustic Arrow and Point Blank

The skill page states that % increased Projectile Damage from the Point Blank support gem will have no effect on the Caustic Cloud Chaos Damage per Second. I found this to be false. Adding Point Blank to Caustic Arrow definitely increases Caustic Arrow's Chaos Damage per Second, not just the attack damage. It even shows increased cloud damage in the tooltip. --Decimus2000 (talk) 18:00, 22 February 2016 (UTC)

gem will affect the cloud damage. But Point Blanks main appeal is the 50% more damage in short range, which does not apply on the cloud. It's impossible for any kind of attack damage to scale damage over time, they are two different damage sources and can never overlap. --Illviljan (talk) 18:12, 22 February 2016 (UTC)

Caustic Arrow can be supported by Ranged Attack Totem

So in fact Caustic Arrow works with Ranged Attack Totem Support, if I remember correctly this was mentioned somewhere before but I can't find any related pathcnotes. --0xf (talk) 20:23, 11 August 2016 (UTC)
