DoT + Intelligence = counter productive ?

Recommended Posts

Some spells do Damage Over Time (im looking at YOU Aloth!), and in the description I see intelligence increase their duration ...

20 damage over 10 seconds (with int 20)


20 damage over 1 seconds (with int 1)

i'm not sure if high intelligence actually makes DoT spells worse by spreading the damage they do over longer peroid of time, or if the damage dealt by DoT spells is per 'tick' and if so what this 'tick' is ?

I understood it as "20 damage every second" (for an amazing 200 total damage thnx to the bonus int), but I haven't played enough combat to really test it. (working sucks)



If this is the case then my 20 might 19 int wizard is going to love using DoTs.
