Starward Rogue AuGMENTED teaser - Paladin Mech
« on: November 19, 2017, 08:11:39 PM »
A video showcasing the new Paladin mech in game. Plus you get to see a little bit of the new floor:

Oh, a million points for anyone who can recognize which Path of Exile boss the Frost Queen miniboss was inspired by. I think this is a pretty tricky question, though.

Looks great. Not sure how much the game is balanced for a melee character, but I am definitely eager to try.

I will guess Merveil or Mother Phyia.

If the mech was full melee it probably wouldn't work that well, but it's more like half-melee since all main melee weapons at least have a ranged projectile component. The projectile doesn't do as much damage as a close range melee attack, but it can still be used for those times where you're forced to fight at range.

Nope! It's a very difficult question, I think, heh. I'll give one clue: the elemental type for this Starward Rogue miniboss variant is different to the one the boss uses in Path of Exile.

The most obvious but probably wrong answers are Garukhan, Queen of the Winds, or Vulkuur, the unbreathing queen, just because of the name similarities and different elements than frost.

Unbreathing Queen is the closest because of... reasons, but that's not the one. :)
