Bear in mind that Poison Creeper's unexpected power is due to the Last Collide missile mechanic, which requires at least two monsters colliding with the same missile(s), so Poison Creeper is much, much less effective against single or spread out targets. Since -% Enemy Poison Resistance equipped by the player doesn't apply, poison resistant monsters are more of an obstacle as well.

No idea, although since Spirit of Barbs is a level 30 skill that returns less damage at skill level 20 than a single point in Thorns at level 6 (and the actual percentage damage returned is even less than that displayed), I don't think all due care and attention was paid...
