This Path of Exile build guide is for my Spark Scion created at the start of Ascendancy. It’s fantastic self found with Spark + Orb of Storms Leveling and scales extremely well with things like Voltaxic Rift and Poison into the highest levels of content. I have tested it in Tier 15 Maps with great success and viewers have reported it kills Atziri with ease. The Labyrinth is a joke on this build of course. Unless they really change a lot of how spark works, projectile scaling or Voltaxic is heavily nerfed I see this staying strong for some time to come. For the full lowdown on the build be sure to check out the Spark Scion build video, otherwise there’s a rundown of the gear, skills and passives below.
