Scion Builds List

I try to include only builds that have been played to ~ lvl 75-80 / played some mid-range maps (tier 7-10) to make sure the OP knows what he is talking about and avoid pure theorycrafts.
A build should also contain more than just a linked tree + gear


ATTENTION: If you have updated an old build please make a post at the bottom of this thread so that i can add it again.


ABBREVIATIONS
AC - showcases a variety of scion subclasses
ALS – alternative start
ASS - Assassin
BER - Berserker
CHA - Champion

The Berserker and Deadeye ascendancies got nerfed in 2.3. The ascendancy choices of 2.2 builds might therfore be outdated
