So testings been done and at 150 piety, dia/bio2 does like 60+ damage ticks, and poison 2 does like 100.

They generally last 30-60 seconds.

How often do they tick? if they ticked at 5 seconds then they're pretty much useless in any situation other than top level NMs where you can't just straight up banish/scourge for 400+ damage.

if it's every 3 seconds then it would be great on anything that took a while to kill.

First: it's about 40/tick for Bio II and about 80 for poison II.
Second: You need close to 200 PIE even for that (meaning there's nothing left to invest into MND, VIT, INT, and special attacks can one-shot you).
Third: How long those debuffs last is a matter of how strongly they are resisted. On NMs, they generally last shorter.
Fourth: The tic is 3 seconds. I believe all ticks in FFXIV are, but might be mistaken.
Fifth: Yes, they are good only on things that take some time to kill. But that's right their intended use.
