If the trinket procs, does say a 5 stack of deadly poison get upgraded on the next overwrite? And for that matter when the proc ends does the next deadly poison overwrite go back to your baseline damage?

My understanding is that all spells (those currently applied and those that will be applied) are affected during the duration, and then are unaffected at the end. So if you had a 5 stack on one mob (and were attacking another), it would tick regular. When it proc'd, it would start ticking higher, and when it faded, the ticks go back down. This allows warlocks to pre-DoT then trinket and ensure that all of their DoTs for that 10-20 seconds are affected. Previously, you could pop a trinket, apply 30 second DoTs during the 10s duration, and the entire DoT would be affected. Blizzard has fixed this with the new mechanics. The only key would be to use your special abilities during that 10 second window for maximum effect, which can be helped by energy pooling (saving energy then unloading when trinkets are up). Timing a Spree or something for the last 2 seconds of the proc maximizes this effect.

That answers it then. I am mainly thinking back to pre 3.0 when you needed to land rupture (and pretty much everything really) while "find weakness" was up. In some ways I miss timing the waves, but then I also remember how much of a pain in the ass it was. Much easier just to unload when the trinket procs and not worry about it.
