Path of Exile is now around one hour away from releasing and with it comes the new Scion class. This week we caught up with Grinding Gear Games to find out how they like to play the new class by sharing with us some of the builds the team are currently playing.
On hand was Designer Rory Rackham, Senior Designer Carl de Visser, and Quality Assurance Lead Mark Roberts.

Carl’s Elemental Hit Scion
This tanky Scion uses Elemental Hit, along with the three defensive skills, Molten Shell, Arctic Armour and Tempest Shield. Because it’s a Scion it can then head to the ranger, gaining a lot of the projectile specific nodes, accuracy, attack speed and picking up the Ondar’s Guile keystone. The gear is biased towards the heavier side, with Strength and Intelligence gear, for a heavy shield and strong defences.
When the game launches later today perhaps you should try these out, but remember what Chris Wilson said on today’s podcast, take time to explore the game, don’t jump in with your highest level character and start a new character on one of the four month leagues to fully enjoy the new content.
