2 Latent Power +

2 more that are crap and I don't even remember

Stick to tempered elders if you want those good decos guy. You STILL get garbage level 1 decos like poison attack quite often from the highest melder ritual you can do (which is what I did).

Also, is there any way I can put those Latent Power + decos to good use? Is level 7 latent power from the Zinogre set remotely viable in any way?
Yes my name is reallyJustin and yes my last name is really Meme I don't care what the haters say Memes are part of my DNA and you can't take that away frome me!

I haven't gotten around to trying, but if "easier to activate" is actually significantly easier, it may be worth something. But I'm skeptical
Support for optimism: Nearly everyone I meet is some poor sod who doesn't realize what they've got, and I'm the worst offender.

It’s not. “Activates easier.” at level 7 is IIRC 150 damage/4.5 minutes vs 180 damage/5 minutes normally. I think it might last 120 seconds instead 90 too? I don’t remember exactly but in any case it’s still bad.

I would love to use LP7 if it was like 120/3minutes, even if it kept the 90 second active time. I’m just bad enough that I could take advantage of it regularly, plus I like the Zinny armor.

I think the biggest case for using Latent Power is making every second of the time that it is active count. One of the best weapons in the game at dishing out damage at weakpoints and never letting up is the Bow. Stamina consumption being HUGELY reduced during Latent Power being active is also another boon for the Bow.

I'm no bow pro and from what I've read, the best meta bow builds are pretty set in stone at the moment, but I wonder if Latent Power of all things could be the thing to make a difference.

Certainly not zinogre's set though. Silverlos is far too important for bow.

Latent power is terrible... and a massive investment.

If it were 3 level 1 decos to get the full skill, it still probably wouldn't be worth it.

It's almost insulting that they even put that skill, in it's current state, in the game.

Latent power is very bad. Just take a Master's touch set that forces some latent power on you and fight vaal who is causing constant small damage here and there and see how terrible the skill still is when it's getting pretty much the maximum uptime it will get in any fight in the game

I'd just suggest grabbing whatever tempered investigations and grind them for decos.
hell i'm grinding threat 2 & 3 for decos and crowns at the same time so at some point i'll get this s*** done sooner or later lol.
