Review of Lex, the Scion of Fire

Brief Review of Lex, the Scion of Fire

First of all, good job Trion on making her resemble my ex.  Fiery.  That haircut.  Hot.  Powerful.  Possibly a lesbian.  Clearly you want me to do nothing but main her.  For hours at a time.

Let’s move on.

I assume she’s hyperbotics, and I don’t know her hp.  Rumors put it at either 120 or 150.  Presumably the latter, because only Kaigin trash gets to be short-ranged with dumpster-level hp.

Her kit is at the bottom of the page.

OK, so I’m not going to review every ability and mod, but my hot take (get it) is this:  She’s gonna be good, and she’s gonna be a Tigg style lancer.  You get to run in and blow stuff up.  Actually, you can even dash in, which is great, because sometimes, when I’m playing Helio or whatever, I can’t get myself into the middle of the enemy team fast enough.

She’s kind of reminiscent of Amber, with both the fire theme and a free action ult that you can use to sort of power up her other abilities.

I think extra duration on her Flashpoint is going to be amazing.  I think Backdraft is going to be fantastic — all of those mods look good.  Is she going to be better than Tol-Ren?  That’s the real question.  I think her damage will be higher but survivability lower…maybe a cross between Tol-Ren and Garrison?  I also think she’s a bit Nev-like, in that you often need to dash somewhere to increase damage, and you do massive AoE damage but kind of die easily.

Overall, really looking forward to playing with her.  If you know what I mean.
