Path of Exile reveals the Lightning Golem and prepares to go to China
Lightning golems have been consistently voted as one of the best ways to deal shocking electric death to your enemies during the Annual Elemental Golem Convention for five years running, and Path of Exile players will soon get to experience that for themselves. The inclusion of the Lightning Golem skill rounds out the existing elemental golem skill tree, and unlike its contemporaries it will keep more distance and hang back while also enhancing the attacks of nearby allies with electricity. It’s everything you could want in a golem, although it may involve a bit more inadvertent static buildup than you like.

So where can the game go from here? Why not China? Grinding Gear Games has reached an agreement with Tencent to localize the game for Chinese audiences; the localized alpha test is slated to begin in May 2016. You can get more information on the official Chinese site, although being able to read Chinese would make that easier. If that’s not really your thing, just nod and check out the Lightning Golem preview below.

Damonvile To make golems strong you need to run a summoner spec, golems are affected by all the minion passives. On my summoner, I used to run with a chaos golem, and it was very strong in both offense and defense.

If they’re successful in China, they’ll print money

Maybe my golems never got high enough, but they all seemed kind of meh. The stat bonus and status effects,were the best part of them. I was kind of hoping they’d be something you could make a build out of like zombies though.
