Path of Exile previews the Carrion Golem and new support gems coming for Blight

Sick build.

Who wouldn’t want a Carrion Golem as your best friend in Path of Exile? It might be a magically animated pile of corpse pieces shambling along beside you, but that’s no reason it can’t give you a hug. Although you probably don’t want a hug from it. In fact, it might be better to just slot into your existing necromantic minion build in the game when the Blight expansion launches because the whole “my best friend is an animated bag of dead flesh” thing doesn’t really sound like something getting four seasons on Cartoon Network. But it is going to serve as a good all-round addition to your minion army and buff your other minions.

Yes, the Carrion Golem is arriving with the game’s next expansion, along with numerous support gems for your minions. You can attach them to Meat Shield Support, causing them to stick close to you and taunt enemies away; you can also designate your minions with the Infernal Legion option and set them all on fire to lay waste to your enemies. Check out the rundown in the latest post on the official site; if you missed MJ’s big reveal of the overall expansion, check that out too.

Deathmark Support is probably the best thing added to the Summoner’s arsenal since Summon Zombie was added to the game. Not looking forward to the league mechanics, but hot damn I’m gonna be having some fun with another Summoner.

Commenters on here should be familiar that I’m a huge PoE fan, it’s probably my favorite mmo (or pseudo-mmo if you want to argue semantics), but I really think they’re missing the mark with this league. It seems really slow and clunky. The number one question people are asking on reddit at the moment is if they can skip building towers all together and just dps through it.

The new summoner gems look nice. Many will be playing summoner next league. Being PoE though, one build will become meta because some scaling combinations makes it 3 or 10 times stronger(faster) than the rest.

Those sound way better than I was thinking…almost makes me want to play the league just to make a summoner for the league specific gear. Oh well, at least the gems should be there on standard so I can tinker around with an old necromancer I think I have there.
