PoE Absolution Skill Build 3.15

Absolution Absolution has been designed for Guardians as a spell version of Dominating Blow Dominating Blow.

Absolution Absolution deals a damaging shockwave in a targeted area. When it kills an enemy, it summons a Sentinel of Absolution which also deals damage by casting Absolution itself. The Sentinels also periodically cast a larger version of Absolution on a cooldown. While the Sentinels’ version of Absolution can’t summon even more minions, they are a powerful army to fight against.

The "larger" Absolution that the minions will cast

They have two Absolution spells - one normal and one that does the initial AoE and then a follow-up wave extending out to a larger area. Things in the initial AoE will be hit by both. The bigger one has a 6 second cooldown.

Do the minion's Absolution casts apply the effect to create/refresh the minions themselves?

The version of the skill used by minions has none of the properties related to minion-summoning, it just does damage.
