Scion Builds List

Scion Build List

It has been a while but thankfully someone has stepped up for taking care of the Shadow and Scion build lists. eviL_Bison has volunteered and has a proven track record seeing as he already maintains the Duelist build list. Therefore, I'm certain the standards of the list will be just as high, prioritizing logical ordering and readability. I hope you all look forward to seeing his work as much as I do. The transfer is in process so in the near future you will see the pinned post changed from this one to one of eviL_Bison's making.

Also, thank you to everyone who used these lists, its been a pleasure while I was maintaining them and was very enjoyable. Unfortunately time just didn't permit anymore (children take a lot of time :L).

Most importantly, thank you to GGG for all your fantastic hard work, time and commitment. You have a wonderfully fantastic product that you should all be proud of.

Take care, Exiles.
