I really like the idea of poisoning an enemy and letting them die over time from the effect, unfortunately it seems these effects are underpowered in most games, either because they do little damage or because it takes so long for the damage to accumulate that you're better off just outright killing the enemy. So I'm wondering, are there any games where these effects are powerful? Looking for maybe an RPG where I can build a character that specializes in damage over time effects.

And no MMOs please.

in Dark Souls, if you get the Toxic debuff, you're pretty much ****ed if you don't have a way to remedy it immediately.
CATS. That's about it honestly...

Diablo 2. A properly built poisonmancer is extremely deadly.
Of course a properly built bonemancer craps all over it.

Poison Weapon skill, works on both melee and ranged weapons. It would be super OP were it not for frost weapons and the unpatched scorpion traps.

In Borderlands 1 the damage over time elemental weapons are extremely powerful.

You can use and make damage over time spells in Morrowind and Oblivion. They are generally more efficient than direct damage spells. The most damaging effects are also often damage over time/poison.

In multiplayer games with RPG mechanics like LoL the poison and DoT characters/classes can be fotm at times.
