is it any good?
Is it useful?

    Seems like it'd be used in a similar vein as Whirlpool or Earthquake, but w/ poison mechanics ofc. It does look like it can rack up a lot of DoT dmg for a 1-sec activation power, and that can make it good as a personal dps cd against targets that don't move around too much.

    On a related note.
    What SS are good for corrosive?

    It's not about the SSs as much as the Ult dealing Toxic dmg, so for dps you'd ideally want a slotted passive that will boost the Toxic_Elemental dmg type. The main dps stat choice would more be determined by what your toggle/form is for a build that is using the Ult (ex. Ego or Int for Concentration or AotI, Dex or Ego for Chilled Form, etc). Also just fyi, the energy unlocks that can work w/ the Ult are Mephitic (End), Supernatural Power (Rec/End), or Conjuring (Int) (since it seems like Noxious Poison can trigger Conjuring, and even w/o the Debilitating Poison adv).

    Hmmm. Hard choices then. Supernatural seems best for my taste...

    I use it on my fire based toon (fire passive) and he spews it as lava. I love it! There's some nice synergy between the fire and poison debuffs and stacking poison dots on top of clinging flames makes for some nice melting. :)

    The only downside for me is that the spewing animation might not jive with the theme for some of my toons.

    I actually use it on my Fire DPS as well since Meteor Blaze is a flying piece of garbage as ultimate to this day and drags the Fire performance! So Corrosive Pit is pretty good substitute and gets buffed from Fire Form elemental damage
    Really good overall Fire-and-Forget ultimate​​

    Best for nuking big groups of mobs, but also good for applying noxious poison that you can keep refreshing with your blast. Still very useful on bosses for a bit of extra DoT. Overall, very helpful indeed.

    It's not for all characters, but the extra DoT is handy. I use it on some of my cosmic fighters and QWZ characters. Pestilence, Night Warrior, Enchanter - all boost it. I like it as an alternative to whirlpool. I could see fire and ice passives benefiting too.
