With each new League released in Path of Exile, Grinding Gear Games adds specialized NPCs designed not just to progress the game’s storyline but also to help players to get a grapple on whatever new mechanics the team has added. The release of the Blight League introduced Cassia, a nun character tied to the Templar group who has technical abilities.
Since the League’s release, Game Designer Nick Kolan decided to offer players some insight into what went into making Cassia interesting to players — whether they like the actual game mechanics or not. The post covers what went into making her backstory, script writing, and more. For those wanting some extra insight into Cassia’s creation, as well as to add to the conversation, the post can be found on the game’s forums.
