Paragon‘s new hero, Iggy & Scorch, is available to play during the Paid early access. The character comes with some cool fire based abilities.
Iggy rides atop of a beast named Scorch to form Paragon’s newest caster hero. A video uploaded by Paragon’s Youtube account details the pair’s ability to use oil to deal damage. The main draw of using the hero is to control lanes by setting up flame turrets and dousing large areas of the arena in oil and then lighting it up. The massive fire damages all enemies caught in the crossfire. The oil slicks can also be used to gain a small burst of speed, which leaves oil trailing behind you; this creates more opportunities for fire damage. Additionally, when Iggy feeds Scorch a molotov cocktail, the beast breaths fire. Following the fire, Scorch unleashes a powerful belch, which pushes enemies away. This hero is made for players who want to set up traps and lure their enemies into bad situations.
You can find demonstrations of the aforementioned abilities in the video below:
