So I have blood sport, which applies affliction with every hit. Now, if I have several passives that proc every time affliction is applied, does it count if affliction is already on the enemy and you hit them again? Does the programming see this as an application or does it see that it's already applied and not apply it again?
I am trying to compare Salt in the Wound vs Arterial pulse. SitW gives 40 each time affliction is applied, and AP gives 33 every time you penetrate.
It appears, even with 100% pen chance, you still get 7 extra damage per hit with SitW, but I rarely see that in these builds for some reason.
*Edit* I see now that AP has more AoE potential.
