I found the Legendary Item Andariel's Visage, and one of the properties says:

40% chance to cast a Poison Nova when you are hit.

I could observe some green splashing around me when I Leap into a crowd, other than that I can't exactly see a nova effect (like the one in the first Diablo).

How does this work exactly?

That green splash around you when you are hit is what the poison nova effect does.

It does DOT damage based on the DPS of the wearer.

Wow that's super lame compared to Diablo 2. – StrixVaria Nov 24 '12 at 1:52
@InvaderSkoodge that's pretty much what everyone thinks as well – l I Nov 24 '12 at 2:42
