Default Devastation Aura and dots

From some of my tests I concluded that dot dmg is increased upon ticking, but only if the aura is present at the moment of ticking.

Is this correct, and how does shaft work with the aura?Does shaft treat pending dot dmg as increased by aura (~4-6%) and thus triggers sooner, or pending dot is not affected by the aura?

edit:this was supposed to be in Player Guides and Help D:

Correct. Devastation Aura increases damage at the time it occurs, so when the DoT ticks.

Shaft of Death takes into account damage increasers like devastation aura as well as damage mitigation and damage shields in order to trigger.

Would this also increase effects from runes such as mana draw/energy draw if the target is under the effects of devastation when the dot is applied?

The way it works currently, no, since the Devastation bonus happens only when the DoTs tick.

"they way it works currently..." does this mean it's something the team may look into in the future?

My understanding is that the way it works now is this:

(Simplified numbers for easy math)

DoT gem X says it deals 100 dmg over 10 seconds

Gem X connects, logs into system that it does 100 over 10, and mana draw 5% pulls out 5 mana.

This produces 10dmg ticks every second. Devastation 5% aura changes damage to 10.5

---

This is very different from devastation aura changing the gem total from 100 -> 105, vamping off 105, and things tick accordingly. Honestly this is more intuitive to me (ie, this feels like how it should work) but I'm pretty sure they don't.

Does it work with dots from the archery tree and shaft? I only see shafts for 30 / 120 at the end if i trishot kill a mob beyond death.

Is it possibly because its already dead and the aura doesn't work then?
