Poison > Elemental ?

Any elemental attack seem to be more viable than the others?

Lightning > Fire > Ice ?

There is no better element it depends on the enemies weakness!

And poison is better imo as it starts faster and acts last so if your attackers dont kill the enemies they die at the end of turn.

For the first stratum or so, Poison is the best way to damage your enemies. Afterwards, it quickly loses effectiveness.

Unless they stopped capping poison at 255 damage, yes it does. 255 damage is nothing in the later stratums. For Alchemists, you can make much better use of those skill points than a measly 255 damage per turn.

Alchemists don't have poison anymore, and it caps at 295 which is greater than 60% of stratum 4s mob HPs so it kills mobs quickly for a measly 12TP.

Alchemists don't poison anymore to my knowledge.

Dark Hunter's Viper skill can be maxed by Level 4 and does 122 poison damage. Not too shabby.

Dark Hunters and Hexers can poison. Alchys cannot, as prev. mentioned.
Hexer can take his poison curse to 10 whereas Viper can only get to 5. 10 is a much bigger investment of points.

60% of mobs up to stratum 4, eh? That seems worth it IMO. IF it goes out of style one can always reset skills elsewhere.

Also, in the first stratum is there more of a bigger vulnerability to one thing vs another or is that balanced also?
