Slow Mo Zombies Temporal Chains Math (This is Just a Post For My Own Reference)

GGG is amazing at community feedback and support. For a game this complex, with its frequency of updates, it's impossible to have every iota of knowledge available and easy to access. I have done tons of research to the math of curses and have had some valuable feedback from both GGG and reliable community members...So I'm pretty sure I have it correct. (GGG has hinted that curses will be modified greatly in a distant future update). So here's what I have:
- Things that improve a curse's quality are added together.
- Things that improve a curse's effect are added together and then multiplied with the additive sum of quality.
- The negative effect reductions of bosses/The Shaper are multiplied to the final equation of the first two points.

Let's use Temporal Chains as an example.
- Temporal Chains (TC) at level 20 slows enemies by 29%.
- Each percent of quality on TC improves the slow of the skill by .5%. So improving the quality of TC to its max slows enemies 10% (20*.5=10%).
- Linking Enhance Support to TC will improve its quality by 16%. That takes the 20% quality from TC and adds another 16% (16*.5=8%).
- 29+10+8=47%. So with those two skills Temporal Chains went from 29% slow to 47%.

- Having our linked Blasphemy Support at a full quality will improve the curse's effect by 10%.
- On the passive tree there are nodes that improve the effects of curses. They total 40%.
- 10+40=50

- So we have a 47% base slow being improved by 50%. 50% of 47 is 23.5.
47+23.5=70.5
=70% slow. You would exceed the 75% slow cap with a level 4 Enhance (Good luck) :). (That's as good as you get without being the Occultist or with Uniques.)

The problem (not a big one) is that Enhance is a drop only gem and takes a LONG time to improve. So once you actually find it, you'll likely only get its efficiency up to 8%, not 16%. (To get Enhance to its highest level in Solo Self Found, you'll have to likely only play this character in a league.) Here are the "slow %'s" with the first three different Enhance Support levels:

- The above equation without Enhance (or with Enhance at level 1): 58.5%
- The above equation with Enhance at level 2: 64.5%
- The above equation with Enhance at level 3: 70.5%
- The above equation with Enhance at level 3: 76.5%

- The above results vs. the Shaper with Enhance at level 0: 19.9%
- The above results vs. the Shaper with Enhance at level 1: 21.9%
- The above results vs. the Shaper with Enhance at level 2: 24.0%
- The above results vs. the Shaper with Enhance at level 3: 26.0%




***Keep in mind that enemies have a cap of being slowed. So if you're chilling an enemy and have them in Temporal Chains, the most an enemy can be slowed in TOTAL from ALL sources is 75%.

And in terms of the Tool Tip, GGG is very aware that their Tool Tip isn't popular or helpful...curses included. You won't have an accurate Tool Tip regarding your curses. But I got a response from one of the co-founders about this very specific thing which is cool. https://www.pathofexile.com/forum/view-thread/2243603


I won't respond to this post. It's just a link in my Slow Mo Zombies guide for reference.

That was quite a good read. Thanks for posting.

It's a tad bit late, so I'll most likely check this out again tomorrow.
