Is there any reason to keep “convert damage” once we have “add damage”? Just curious what others think.
Assuming you are using weapons which benefit of Infusion (NE/Radiation/Cryo guns), of course you should. Infusion interacts multiplicatively with FE.
Elemental matching is a lot more important in this game, so early on when you’re finding more non-elemental weapons, Infusion would be a good choice. Later on, definitely a good idea to pair with Cryo and Radiation weapons to get the best of both worlds if that’s your thing.
Lol, it was the first skill I got. Absolutely brilliant on early game because no weapons really drop with Elements til later.
But, perhaps I should illustrate more why this might be a conversation and not a “duh”. I picked up a Tsunami. It fires Shock and Corrosive bullets. So. If my build idea is a SoulFire Tsunami, once I get to the Capstone, do I benefit more from popping the points I would have put in infusion into something else?
Potentially, depending on who and what you are playing against.
