    Please remind me how the rabies switch trick exactly works...

    I know that you hit with Your main weapon and the switch to (in my case) Death web + 20/20 monarch and woila!
    But how exactly does it work? Will the dmg be higher if i hit with Plague bearer than with BoTD? Or is the dmg gonna be the same cause the Death web +20/20 monarch overwrites it?

    Well the answer to your question is simple. Attack with main side with plague bearer+spirit monarch. Then swap weapons so you have 30/30 sword+20/20 monarch on switch. You gain an extra 50% poison dmg to your rabies that you used with your +skills side while keeping the +skills from main side. You also benefit the -50 epr too.

    only +/- % will have effect, not + skills

    I thought you still get to keep the +skills from main side when you use rabies on main side even when you do swap weapons. I guess I thought wrong. Thanks for correcting me.

    ofc the + skills from main skills are important, but not important on switch

    Once you have already landed the attack, +Skills will not matter because it's already been cast at Xslvl before you switched and made it Yslvl. +/- Resists on the other hand, are constantly active and will have an immediate effect on all monsters affected by your previously cast rabies.

    Correct me if I am wrong:

    Attack slot: Skills + +psn dmg
    Switch: -psn res

    You bite your opponent with the attack slot, wait until it is green, switch to 2nd slot for only a few seconds at most, switch back to 1st slot.
