DOT build question

Default DOT build question

I am a lvl 85 poison dotter and I do not succeed to farm high level mobs. I have 90+ in all relevant skills, 877 in CnC, 35 bill xp and I barely survive in vd4,
Mobs seem to resist me a lot more than DD casters with less CnC.

Can someone please help me understand what I am doing wrong? Is there anything I can do to make mobs resist me less?

I am considering going DD for farming and DOT for pvp, but want to check if there is a way to farm as dotter first.

What is your main toon we are talking about.
Basically DoTs dont have easely accessable procs to land gems for sure, without certain items. U get resisted a lot at High black mob areas, unlike DD casters who have access to hit for sure aka with Assurance rune, ridicolous Spear of Providence or whatever. U cant farm as fast as DD casters do at Redwood+, not with current game mechanics.

Toon is Diny on s2.
You said: "Basically DoTs dont have easely accessable procs to land gems for sure, without certain items."
Which items are you thinking about?

It is a shame for dotter that assurance rune does not work for them indeed, but can't do much about that

The legendary slasher called black edge of decay gives you 33% hit chance with dots, but.. might not be worth using for you idk losing staff kinda hurts alot.

For farming, shadow has it correct. Basically you must choose to farm lower level mobs, or run black edge of decay, i've tested up to 1300 CNC there is no appreciable difference past 800 really.

Unfortunately, dots are quite inferior to DD when it comes to PVE farming.
