Path of Exile Adds New Ascendancy Class: The Hierophant
Strategy over power.
Path of Exile developer Grinding Gears has revealed a new class for their upcoming Ascendancy expansion: the Hierophant.
As one of the three options available to the Templar character, the Hierophant is a useful spell-caster and support class that favors strategy over raw damage. While it might not appear a powerful class at first glance, the Hierophant is fairly capable and complex Ascendancy class thanks to its unique skills, which you can view in the image below.
You can also find additional screens of the Hierophant in-action below.
