question [DURATION] Twinkletoe's description is incorrect, i have tested it and confirmed it is damage per second by default, setting the affix duration will not cause the skill to function as he described.

-Sets the duration. ​ Possibilities are 0, INSTANT, ALWAYS or any number of your choice. ​ Note that ALWAYS just means until the Effect ends.  This can occur because its associated affix or skill'​s duration ends or the effect is forcibly removed. ​  +Sets the duration. ​ Possibilities are 0, INSTANT, ALWAYS or any number of your choice. ​ Note that ALWAYS just means until the Effect ends.  This can occur because its associated affix or skill'​s duration ends or the effect is forcibly removed. ​For damage over time skills, the damage ​is PER second and not divided by the duration.

-TwinkleToes has a lot to say about the intricacies of the DURATION field: +
- +
-“duration 0 is for cosmetic purposes and to do manual duration setting via affixes, setting the duration to 0 on a damage ​buff for instance then having the affix duration be a number will cause the affix display to override the duration so you get (x% damage bonus for x seconds) +
- +
-setting the duration to ALWAYS on the effect will cause it to display differently (x% damage), you can then set a duration on the affix(10 sec) but the display will remain the same (x% damage) however the buff/debuff display will have the 10 second duration you set on your affix +
- +
-this interaction also changes how DoT effects are calculated, having ALWAYS and a affix duration will cause the DoT to quantify the total damage and spread it out over the duration,if you set the damage ​to 10 it will deal the damage over those 10 seconds.. so, 1 damage per second +
- +
-having 0 as the effect duration ​and an affix duration(10) will not spread ​the DoT over its duration ​but deal the damage you've input into the effect 10 times over 10 seconds, so you'll end up dealing 100 damage over 10 seconds “ +
- +
-Note that affix duration is referring specifically to the duration listed in the affix editor, not the duration listed for the affix in the skill editor.+
