heard this rumor a while back , is it true that elemental damage is doubled with gear bonuses when kicking , like with trang oul you get +50% poison damage or facets do +10%

nope. But strength works double on it

“ there's a bonus to %ED based on strength/dex for various weapons

1% strength for most melee weapons and unarmed and shields (smite)
0.8% str + 0.5% dex for amazon javelins and spears
0.75% str + 0.75% dex for claws, daggers, throwing axes and throwing knives

Daggers get .75/.75 ED% per point in strength and dexterity, bows and crossbows get 1% ed per dexterity

1.1% strength for hammers
1.2% strength for kick skills*

*kicks use 1.2% strength scaling for the %ED applied to the base damage, but the base damage uses a min to max of (str+dex-20)/4 to (str+dex-20)/3, so strength effectively factors into it twice

maybe you were reading about venom?

venom gets the poison mastery buff twice.
once at time of cast +poison damage% is applied to the spell.
and then when it's on your gear you get a second +poison damage% from it applying to your attacks since the poison mastery boosts all on-gear poison damage.
