Eleventh consecutive post.
This afternoon the new league started in Path of Exile. For my first character of the league, I’m trying a build centered around Flame Totem. I started as a Templar and plan to take the Hierophant ascendancy.
So far it’s fun. The essences are fun to get. And I’m glad they do keep the prophecy mechanic, even though the silver coins drop waaaaay less. It’s probably now a good idea to save them up, instead of using them as fast as you can. I just got the Ancestral Bond keystone, so now I get to have two totems. And already it is becoming awesome. I definitely see why this type of build is so highly recommended for a first-character-in-league build.
