First of all, I am sorry I have to come to the forums, hat in hand so to speak, to ask this question. I have looked everywhere for the answer and could not find it. I am awful at math so it is possible that the answer was buried in equations that are greek to me.
More than several of my characters have the Superior Rune of the Traveler slotted because of the 25% movement speed in the sixth tier. I also slot a seventh rune in the breathing apparatus because I always assumed that it worked the same way underwater as well .
I recently got one of those new-fangled swim-speed infusions..a plus 19.
I know that if there are two swim speed bonuses, the game takes the fastest one and that is the bonus used. I also know swiftness works underwater and if you have a power that gives swiftness underwater that is what you should be using.
But for the characters that do not have access to underwater swiftness, 25% coming from the Rune is faster than 19% coming from the infusion.
(1) Does the rune's sixth tier 25% movement speed work underwater like I thought it did????
(2) If so, should I not be using the infusion on characters that have the 25% Rune movement bonus?
Thank you all in advance.
