Iggy & Scorch – A Pyro-Saur Combo – Joining Paragon

Epic’s Paragon [official site] is getting a duo as its next playable character in the form of dino-and-pyro double-act Iggy & Scorch. They count as a single character, I do believe so no Cho’Gall pantomime horse shenanigans for this particular MOBA as yet.

Let’s take a closer look and I will try to fish some words out of my head that aren’t DINOSAUR DINOSAUR DINOSAUR even though it’s Friday and I’m just looking at the video and thinking DINOSAUR DINOSAUR DINOSAUR.


“As a duo, Iggy & Scorch is a mage with serious lane control. Iggy sits atop Scorch while putting down flame turrets that zone enemies. Iggy also throws molotovs that cause fire damage, while Scorch secretes flammable oil that compounds the damage over time and expands the damage area.”

I’m assuming a more detailed breakdown of abilities and so forth will be available in the next few days as Iggy & Scorch won’t be released to the early access beta until 21 April. From the video I’m wondering whether the abilities which have Iggy interacting with Scorch (getting him or her to bite down on a Molotov then breathing fire, for example) are distinct abilities or toggle-able variants on a basic set of skills.

I have Paragon installed at the moment but when I tried to play it my internet promptly fell over and died. I’d like to give it another go but when??? WHEN?

    Lovely! I was wondering if they were going to have a bit more fun with character design in this game. All their standard characters were pretty stock (which isn’t bad, obviously–you want a solid and inoffensive base.) But one of the things that I love of the moba world is that fight-game style character roster and glad to see they are having some fun!

    It’s interesting to me how popular the enormously protruding, oversized lower jaw+teeth look is among fantasy artists. It’s funny that they don’t realize that teeth are only useful if they can close against other teeth. It’s like trying to catch bears with half a bear trap.

    At least this guy has one complete set of normal, functional teeth, behind the decorative ones.

    Pip, how dare you profane the sanctity of this promotional video with your disgusting irrever-DINOSAUR *cough*, excuse me! As I was saying, this article clearly shows how DINOSAUR. I-I’m terribly sorry, I must have come down with so-DINOSAUR DINOSAUR DINOSAUR DINOSAUR!!!
