Question: do DoTs use a snapshot?

To elaborate: If I have dual wield on one bar (for higher weapon/spell damage) and cast a damage over time effect, then swap to my secondary bar (with, say, a 1h/shield, which offers lower weapon/spell damage), will the damage over time effect continue dealing damage based on the dual wield stats, or will the damage per tick be lowered because i'm now using a weaker weapon?

    DOT damage is calculated with each tick.

    it uses whatever bar's numbers you're on to calculate the damage

    Well that bites... was hoping to run dual wield/shield and apply the dots then switch bars to become more tanky while they do their damage.
