    pure venom is for pve mainly

    venom/dark, for the shadow assassin talent is much better to combine with pvp.

    you didn't have Abomination (great talent for your finishers) but when you do it requires some drastic banish runes to be used for the maximum efficiency

    Strength Fortification is junk, very little bonus.

    Dual Stings isnt needed really because you'll generate orbs very very fast

    Link: venom/dark

    venom/dark has more focus on ToP spam(for crit + silence effect) and finisher damage

    for strength fortification it depends, if you have relatively high base attack, it can give a decent boost. but usually not a lot for most people.

    I'm not so sure on abomination, but since you have shadow assassin to trigger rapid shadow, you will be able to generate blast orbs. abomination won't work for someone who can't spam throat seal a lot.

    Wouldn't you add venomous blade (assuming you need mutilation as well) for extra slow effects? I know mutilation isn't as strong but it's 4 hits and slows. Slows and deadly chaser are vital to be able to prevent kiting and to keep your opponent close since unlike the edge tree, you don't have as many stun/silence chances to keep them under lock.

    it's a very minor bonus, at 2/4 i think i got like a 30 attack boost back when i tested it.

    You don't even need to Throat Seal alot, 1-2 Throat Seals in a few seconds is more than enough with enough Drastic Banish runes + Rapid shadow effect. I used to doubt the usefulness of Abomination long time ago, but since Nightfall when runes came along, it is *very* easy to get 2-3 blast orbs within 2 seconds, Drastic Banish runes and rapid shadow effect help immensely.

    I mostly rely on Darkness Poison slow effects, 10%(or 15% with lvl 4) slow isn't amazing, but it helps enough and it works with all Dark attacks, and 100% chance. Plus, if you go venom/dark you won't have Mutilation, and Flair is rarely used so the usefulness of Venomous Blade is lowered.

    Choosing Abomination over Venomous Blade is just maximizing the amount of damage finishers can deal.
