This is 25% damage increase to 1-star weakness, 20% to 2-star weakness and 15.3% to 3-star weakness. Since poison damage is neglible to 1-star weakness monsters, expected poison damage increase is about 17.5%. Since the armor sets providing this are only rank 9, I do not see reason to invest into this.
By how much is the duration of the poisen increased?
