PoE Sentinel Challenge Rewards

The Sentinel Challenge League

  • Challenge leagues are a great opportunity for a fresh start in a new economy. All of your old characters and items are still present in the Standard and Hardcore leagues, but you're encouraged to join the new leagues, complete challenges and demonstrate your mastery of Path of Exile!
  • In the Sentinel Challenge League, ancient constructs have been unearthed across Wraeclast. You will harness the power of these Sentinels to control your level of risk and reward on the battlefield. When deployed, they follow you for a short time and empower your enemies, greatly increasing both their difficulty and reward.
  • There are three classes of Sentinels. Stalker Sentinels empower a moderate number of enemies in sequence as you encounter them. Pandemonium Sentinels empower a wide swath of monsters at once in a quick burst. Apex Sentinels only empower rare or unique enemies but have a very strong effect.
  • The Sentinel Controller can be used to customise the behaviour of your Sentinels. Filaments may be arranged on the controller to channel power to its nodes, each of which affect your Sentinels in different ways. These filaments may be moved around as often as you like in order to experiment with your ultimate Sentinel playstyle.
  • When your Sentinels run out of charge, they can be combined together with a Power Core to assemble a new, fully-charged Sentinel that inherits properties from both of the husks you disassembled. This hybrid Sentinel may also gain special properties such as an exclusive variant base type or modifiers that can only come from the assembly process.
  • You may uncover or assemble Unique Sentinels which behave in very specialised and powerful ways.
  • Recombinators are a rare form of currency that allow you to apply the Sentinel Assembly process to your actual items. Take any two pieces of equipment from the same item class and combine them together. The results are unpredictable but can merge the best elements of each item to create something of unprecedented power.
  • With 3.18.0, there are Standard, Hardcore and Solo Self-Found variations of the Sentinel challenge league available. They have the same core mechanics and items. You can create private league versions of these leagues, with mods that make the game harder.
