50% bramble
+3 shadow helm with 2 5%/5% psn facets
+3 shadow ammy
trangs gloves for 25% psn skill boost
arachnid for +1 skills
+2 skill dancers
+3 shadow/+3 venom claws each with a pair of facets
9x shadow GCs
3 skill hellfire
1 skill anni
+1 battle command

Total venom level on cast: 55
Psn skill boost: 50 + 25 + 10 + 10 + 10 = 105%

lvl 55 venom = 1610 venom over .4 seconds

PLR hell doubling: 3220 over .8 sec

3220 x 2.05 on casting venom = 6601 over .8 sec

6601 x 2.05 on applying venom = 13202 over .8 sec

PvP penalty yields 13202/6 = 2200 over .8 sec real pvp psn damage per application

For opponent with 75% psn res:
2200 x .25 = 550 psn damage over .8 sec.

I'm not including res lowering from the facets since it is easily countered.

Did I miss anything?

EDIT ADD: This is a horrible dueling set-up. But it's the highest possible damage. I think.

lvl 50 venom lasts 312 seconds so you cast it unequipe all your plus skill gear very fast. equip 40 small poison charm the highest dunno what it is keep your +% x dmg poision tho. get a merce with conviction aura pole have a lower resist charge wand on switch. get the highest dmg weapon possible with poision and start killing. I think it would take .30-2 minute if you really fast to unequip equip charms are pain. Which leaves you 3-4 minutes of fighting. nOBODY Would do that tho

Poison damage charms are effectively useless with venom.

[QUOTE='22'Souljah]is that sword and shield better than 2 x +6 venom claws w/ 2 x 5% dmg psn facets in em?[/QUOTE]

Well, technically once you have CAST the venom, the claws aren't as good as a couple items filled with facets. But I don't see where this thought experiment is going. Getting the highest highest of the high venom damage is pointless when you die like a smelly back-alley dog on the first hit and you can't hit anyone yourself.
