Venomous hail.

A very stupid question but since venmous hail does 50 % as poison damage does that mean it is affected by focus?

if you have a weapon with "convey X damage over X seconds" that will be increased by focus.
since VH hits often the dot gets applied 12 times. So the damage is not to be neglected.

I think the poison damage gets improved by focus as well?

focus only increases magic damage like spells with X-X Damage of Y Element.
it doesnt increase anything with weapon dps.

That is wrong.

Focus and STR both increases %Weapon DPS by 0.5% per point for their specific damage type (Physical for STR, and magical/Elemental for Focus).

If an ability does %Weapon DPS as physical, then it wont be increased by focus, if it does elemental/magical damage however,  then it IS increased by focus. Same goes for What type of damage your weapon has.
