Skill functions and interactions

  • Sentinels: Sentinels use regular melee attacks, as well as Shield Charge on a cooldown. They can also use Crusade Slam, which deals area of effect damage in a cone in front of them.
  • Support Gems: Any support gem that can apply to an attack as well as a minion, such as Melee Physical Damage Support, Multistrike Support, or Melee Splash Support, will apply to the attacks and abilities of Sentinels of Purity. This will result in a higher mana reservation, in which case, using a Circle of Guilt with "Herald of Purity has x% increased Mana Reservation Efficiency" may be wise. Sentinels cannot be supported by Hextouch Support (to for example apply an curse on enemies).
  • The summoned Sentinels of Purity's stats scale heavily with the gem level of Herald of Purity. For example at gem level 20 they have a base physical damage of 834 to 1,251 (before the inherent "Minions deal x% more Physical Damage" modifier) with a total life of 5,025 per Sentinel (before the inherent "Minions have x% more Life" modifier), while at gem level 15 their base physical damage is 501 to 752 with a total life of 2,930 per Sentinel.
  • Sentinels have 40% Elemental Resistances and 20% Chaos Resistance.
  • Sentinels have a base attack time of 1.20.
