NO. If you place poison to enemies by your casts/totems/traps etc. all your increased duration things, DoT increase, poison increase, all of these work. BUT NONE works for MINIONS. You only can do this via skill gems or "smth MINION smth" nodes. And there are NO nodes to increase any poison viability on minions at all. So I would say, that minions are quite the WORST thing to use poison with from 3.0

What? Increased duration will no longer apply to poison. You took only a snippet of my post, which also explains how even minion builds are hurt by this, and even explains why. It's not about whether minion builds with poison will be as good as they used to be, it's about the fact that they will be one of the few builds where poison won't be a COMPLETE WASTE.
If it must buy increased bleed/poison/burn and increased DOT, now that DOT does not depend on increases of hit, how to leech enough life?. I mean, DOT based character will be good with DOT but won't have any increased physical, so, hits will be weak, there will be some leech system related with DOT?
Just posting to say that EVERYONE(new players) should see at least once that picture from mark_GGG it explains everything so much better ... i think you should ve include it in the patch notes (mostly so that new players understand this part of the game mechanics!)
