The Sentinel New Season Challenge League

  • 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.

List of Sentinels & Harness Their Power

In this league, you will uncover and collect Sentinels and take advantage of their great power. 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.

Name Description
Stalker Sentinel Stalker Sentinel Empowers a moderate number of enemies in sequence as you encounter them. They will follow you for around thirty seconds, empowering dozens of monsters before they dissipate.
Pandemonium Sentinel Pandemonium Sentinel Empower a wide swath of monsters at once in a quick burst. They are designed for mass area-of-effect, and typically only fire one shot. But this shot really counts, chaining between monsters to affect an entire screen full of foes at once. This class of Sentinel can be very dangerous because it empowers so many enemies at once.
Apex Sentinel Apex Sentinel Only empowers rare or unique enemies but have a very strong effect. They fire fewer shots but have a much larger impact on difficulty and reward.

You start with a single slot to equip a Stalker Sentinel Stalker Sentinel, but as you play through the league, you can eventually unlock two more Sentinel slots so that you can have one Sentinel of each class equipped at a time. Each class of Sentinel can be deployed once per area that you play. You’ll quickly develop various strategies for when each class is best used, for example, saving your Pandemonium Sentinel Pandemonium Sentinel for when you’re surrounded by monsters, or using your Apex Sentinel Apex Sentinel on the map boss or league content that spawns several rare monsters. With a full loadout of Sentinels equipped, in every map you’ll get to empower bosses of your choice, juice up an entire screen at once with a button press, and choose the part of the map where it’s best to empower a series of dozens of monsters.

Power Core: Assemble and Experiment

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.

Tier Name Description
1 Power Core Power Core Destroys two Sentinels to create a fully-charged Sentinel with a combination of their properties. Sometimes, the resultant item is modified unpredictably.
2 Transforming Power Core Transforming Power Core Destroys two Sentinels to create a fully-charged Sentinel with a combination of their properties. Sometimes, the resultant item is modified unpredictably, with a higher chance of a special base type.
3 Amplifying Power Core Amplifying Power Core Destroys two Sentinels to create a fully-charged Sentinel with a combination of their properties. Sometimes, the resultant item is modified unpredictably, with a higher chance of a upgrading the tier of modifiers.
4 Augmenting Power Core Augmenting Power Core Destroys two Sentinels to create a fully-charged Sentinel with a combination of their properties. Sometimes, the resultant item is modified unpredictably, with a higher chance of new random modifiers.

Recombinators Currency: Create Powerful Items

In the Sentinel League, you may find a new type of rare currency: Recombinators. These allow you to apply the Sentinel Assembly process to your actual items, taking any two pieces of equipment from the same item class and combining them together. While the results are unpredictable, this process could merge the best elements of each item, potentially adding an exclusive new modifier, to create something of unprecedented power.

Name Description How to use Stack Size
Armour Recombinator Armour Recombinator Destroys two Armours to create a new Armour with a combination of their properties. Sometimes, the resultant item is modified unpredictably. Right click this item then select two Armours to combine. These items must be of the same item class. 1/20
Weapon Recombinator Weapon Recombinator Destroys two Weapons or Quivers to create a new Weapon or Quiver with a combination of their properties. Sometimes, the resultant item is modified unpredictably. Right click this item then select two Weapons or Quivers to combine. These items must be of the same item class. 1/20
Jewellery Recombinator Jewellery Recombinator Destroys two Jewellery items to create a new Jewellery item with a combination of their properties. Sometimes, the resultant item is modified unpredictably. Right click this item then select two Jewellery items to combine. These items must be of the same item class. 1/20

Uber Eldritch Pinnacle Boss Fights

PoE 3.18 added 7 new uber versions of Pinnacle Boss fights, accessible through Atlas Keystone Passives. These fights are extremely difficult, so only attempt them if you have a very powerful character.

Uber Eldritch Pinnacle Boss Atlas Keystone Description
Uber Venarius Memento Mori
  • The Cortex is level 85
  • Venarius' full power is unleashed in the Cortex
  • Venarius drops 3 additional Rare Items with 3 less common Synthesised Implicit Modifiers

  • The Eater of Worlds' full power is unleashed in The Absence of Symmetry and Harmony

Uber Maven Throw the Gauntlet

  • The Shaper and The Elder in The Shaper's Realm have 100% increased chance to drop an Orb of Dominance

Allocating one of these keystones on your Atlas passive tree ramps up the corresponding boss fight so that it is extremely difficult. Like, really hard. Harder than saying goodbye to Zana hard. Only allocate these keystones if your character is extremely powerful and you know you can handle the challenge. In general, the encounters' rules are modified to be far more punitive and difficult. In return, though, you can earn some very enticing rewards. Each of the uber fights has an additional high-chance reward and a chance of getting a very very rare chase reward. For example, the Uber Maven guarantees an Elevated Sextant if you're able to complete the encounter. Very rarely, you may be able to earn an Awakened Exceptional Support Gem as well such as Empower, Enlighten or Enhance.

These keystones unlock crazy battles that will challenge our most aspiring players who are deep in Path of Exile's endgame. They add a new level of difficulty for those who want to push their builds even farther than they ever have before.

Alongside the launch of Path of Exile: Sentinel, we're hosting an event where players will compete in the Hardcore Solo Self-Found Sentinel league to be the first to kill the new uber pinnacle bosses.

PoE 3.18(Path of Exile: Sentinel) Release Date

Path of Exile: Sentinel will launch on May 13th (PDT) for PC and Mac, and on May 18th for Xbox and PlayStation. In Path of Exile: Sentinel, 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.

The May expansion contains the Sentinel challenge league, 20 atlas keystone passives, seven uber boss fights, new pinnacle unique items, revamped monster modifiers, game controller support, new quality of life features, a revamped challenge system and much more.

Expansion Timeline Description
May 10 The Archnemesis League ends on PC on Tuesday May 10th at 3pm (PDT).
May 13, 2022
  • The release date of PoE 3.18 on PC and Mac.
May 18, 2022
  • The release date of PoE 3.18 on console(Xbox and PlayStation).
  •  On consoles, the Archnemesis League will end.

Archnemesis Changes: Encounter Impactful Monster Modifiers

Replace all existing monster modifiers with the mods that introduced in the Archnemesis League, which all have a great impact on combat and are easy to identify at a glance. Magic packs share one modifier between them while Rare monsters typically have two modifiers, and can rarely spawn with more. Multiple synergistic mods can create quite dangerous situations in combat.

PoE Archnemesis Changes

  • Archnemesis modifiers have been rebalanced and added to the core game. Existing Magic and Rare monster modifiers have been replaced with Archnemesis modifiers.
  • Rare monsters will be found with two Archnemesis modifiers by default. From Act 6 onwards, there is a chance to find monsters with three modifiers, and in Maps, a chance for finding monsters with four modifiers.
  • Magic monsters will be found with one Archnemesis modifier by default.
  • The life, experience, increased item quantity and rarity of Magic and Rare monsters are no longer primarily determined by the monster's rarity, these are now primarily determined by the type of modifiers on the monster itself. A monster with more, or rarer, modifiers will have more life, increased item quantity and rarity, and grant more experience.
  • Archnemesis modifiers are able to be gained by characters through sources such as Headhunter and Inspired Learning, though you are only able to have one instance of each modifier at any given time.

Enjoy Consistent Character Balance

GGG is intentionally making no changes to character power. That means no nerfs, no buffs, nothing. Every single build and build guide made for Siege of the Atlas will work exactly the same in Sentinel.

However, build exploration is still required in 3.18. Sentinel introduces many difficult challenges, both in the challenge league itself and in the endgame content, and you're going to have to work out a plan to create characters that are able to handle this content. But at this release, you can hit the ground running, knowing with confidence which builds are a good starting point.

PoE 3.19 definitely contains planned changes to character balance.

Deploy while engaging in other league content

Sentinels can be deployed while engaging in other league content, so you can juice the risk and reward to quite crazy levels. For example, you could enter a Mirror of Delirium, trigger a Breach and deploy your Sentinel at the same time, causing the monsters to have three significant modifiers to both their difficulty and rewards. There are only a few specific areas that Sentinels can't be deployed in, mostly for technical reasons, and those are: unique maps, pinnacle Atlas bosses and the Simulacrum.

Complete Harder Challenges

Path of Exile's challenge system has remained the same for the last 21 leagues. For Sentinel, we had a look at whether there were any easy ways that we could update it based on what we have learned over the last six years.

Our plan is to retain the model of 40 challenges with rewards that unlock as you progress through them, but with a goal of providing substantially more challenge to end-game players, and substantially more rewards to go with it.

In order to achieve this, we have crunched down the easier challenges so that the first reward unlocks after only 6 and the second at 12. These are equivalent in difficulty to 12 and 24 challenges from the old system, respectively. This change gave us a lot more space to ramp up to some incredibly difficult challenges towards the end, which will take a lot of time and skill to complete. There are now ten different rewards you can unlock, which comprise two complete armour sets, each with a pair of wings. But be warned, the challenges you must complete are much, much harder than any that we have ever set you before.

Use a Game Controller on PC

Implemented support for game controllers in the PC version of Path of Exile. This also means that if you're lucky enough to already have a Steam Deck, you can play Path of Exile on the go!

PoE Controller Support 3.18

  • Controller Support for Path of Exile is no longer in Beta.
  • Added support for DualShock 4 Controllers.
  • Added PvP Support for controllers.
  • It is now possible to manually select a controller to use under the Input Options if there are multiple controllers connected.
  • It is now possible to navigate to and select Private Leagues and Events in the Character Selection Menu with a controller.
  • It is now possible to navigate and interact with the chat window when using a controller.
  • Attempting to load an Item Filter when using a controller will now output success or failure messages to the chat window.

Kirac League Mods Available During 3.18.0

  • Updated the reminder text on the Orb of Conflict to clarify it can only be used on non-Unique Items.

User Interface Changes: Tinker with Quality of Life Features

In this expansion, added several small quality of life features that should help to enhance the ease of your game experience. For example, it's now much easier to add maps to your Favoured Maps list on the Atlas. Also added settings which allow you to define who is able to access the portals in your hideout.

  • Added options to the hideout decorations user interface that control who is able to access your hideout Portals: All party members, friends, friends or guildmates, or only you.
  • When selecting a Map for a Favoured Map Slot, you are now able to click on one of your existing Favoured Map Slots to select that same Map.
  • The Vaal Temple Map and some Unique Maps not found on the Atlas now have their Map Stash Tab slots hidden by default until you store one of these Maps.
  • If you don't have Flask or Map Stash Tab Affinity, or tabs with those affinities are full, Unique Maps will now fall back on the Unique Stash Tab Affinity.
  • If you don't have Delirium or Blight Stash Tab Affinity, or tabs with those affinities are full, Delirious Maps and Blighted Maps will instead fall back on the Map Affinity.
  • The Unique Stash Tab search filter can now be used to search the modifiers on stored Unique Items.
  • Renamed the "Influence" section of the Currency Stash Tab to "Exotic".
  • Tweaked the display of various currency items in the Default Loot Filter.

Endgame Content Changes

  • Added 7 new uber versions of Pinnacle Boss fights, accessible through Atlas Keystone Passives. These fights are extremely difficult, so only attempt them if you have a very powerful character.
  • Increased the damage of The Eater of Worlds' Skills and melee Attacks. Their Doom Laser Skill now applies an Inescapable Doom debuff which causes characters to take increased damage.
  • Increased the damage dealt by The Searing Exarch's Flame Wall Skill and their melee Attack. The Searing Exarch's rolling meteors are now considered larger for the purposes of collision detection against enemies (that means you, Exile).
  • Increased the damage of The Black Star's Fire Beam Skill. The Annihilating Light and Crushing Darkness debuffs now cause affected players to take more or less Fire or Cold damage from hits only (previously all Fire and Cold damage).
  • Increased the damage of The Infinite Hunger's melee Attacks. Grotesque Monsters found in the Seething Chyme have had their damage reduced.
  • The chance for The Eater of Worlds and The Searing Exarch to drop the Forbidden Flesh and Forbidden Flame Unique Items now scales with Map Item Quantity.
  • The chance for The Black Star and The Infinite Hunger to drop their Unique Items now scales with Map Item Quantity.
  • Eldritch Altars have been rebalanced, their downsides now feel more impactful and they now provide a wider diversity of rewards.
  • The Eldritch Altar option that causes Scarabs dropped by slain Enemies to have a chance to be Duplicated has been replaced with a new option that causes Divination Cards dropped by slain Enemies to have a chance to be Duplicated.
  • The Eldritch Altar option that causes Eldritch Minions to drop Burning Ground on Death no longer scales off of the main hand attack damage of the Monster, as this could result in highly variable amounts of Damage over Time dealt by the ground effect. This change has been applied to all cases of this in the game, notably Burning Ground on Death from Flame Helions and Caustic Clouds on Death from certain Zombies.
  • Maven's Invitation: The Atlas Invitation now drops more commonly from Maps witnessed by the Maven, and less commonly from Maps not witnessed by The Maven.
  • Kirac now offers Maven's Invitation: The Atlas for the moderate price of 8 Chaos Orbs and 1 Orb of Chance in his shop if you have previously completed this encounter.
  • The "Maven releases all Bosses at once" modifier can no longer roll on Maven's Invitations.
  • Shaper or Elder Influence can now be applied to Maps alongside Eater of Worlds or The Searing Exarch Influence, and Conqueror Influence.
  • Shaper, Elder or Conqueror Influence and Influenced Items will now be first encountered in Level 81 Areas.

Atlas and Map Changes

  • Doryani's Machinarium and The Vinktar Square have been removed from the Atlas of Worlds as they cannot be found as natural Map drops. As a result, the total number of Maps on the atlas is now 115.
  • Atlas Passive Skill Points from completing Doryani's Machinarium and The Vinktar Square have been moved to rewards for defeating The Infinite Hunger and The Black Star.
  • Doryani's Machinarium can no longer be offered as a White or Yellow Tier Map mission when rerolling Kirac's missions with a Comprehensive Scouting Report.
  • The chance for Map Areas to contain a Mirror of Delirium no longer increases by a small amount for each other league, atlas or master mechanic that appears in that area. Instead, Map Areas now have an 8% chance to contain a Mirror of Delirium, with campaign areas from the Torched Courts onwards having a slightly higher chance.
  • Operative's Strongboxes can no longer drop Polished Scarabs in White Maps, or Gilded and Winged Scarabs in White or Yellow Maps.
  • Shaper Guardian and Vaal Temple Maps are now affected by Sextant Modifiers on socketed Voidstones.
  • Scouting Reports can now be found in Shaper Guardian and Vaal Temple Maps.
  • Crafted Harbinger Map modifiers no longer state that areas can contain Mysterious Harbingers, and the Infused Harbinger Map modifier now causes Areas to contain 5 additional Harbingers (previously 4).
  • Kirac no longer offers a Mission to kill an Invasion Boss, and no longer sells Maps with Implicit Modifiers that cause the Area to be inhabited by additional Invasion Bosses.
  • The following Maps have been added back to the Atlas: Alleyways, Arena, Barrows, Bog, Colonnade, Core, Crystal Ore, Desert, Factory, Foundry, Fungal Hollow, Lava Lake, Mud Geyser, Park, Pit, Ramparts, Reef, Residence, Sepulchre, Sunken City, Terrace, Tropical Island, Villa, and Wharf.
  • The following Maps have been removed from the Atlas: Ancient City, Arachnid Nest, Belfry, Channel, Colosseum, Conservatory, Coves, Defiled Cathedral, Dig, Estuary, Flooded Mine, Forbidden Woods, Forking River, Ghetto, Graveyard, Haunted Mansion, Iceberg, Malformation, Phantasmagoria, Shipyard, Shrine, Silo, Stagnation, and Vault.
  • Map tiers and locations have been shuffled (though the 'pin' locations for maps has not changed). Most maps are now initially found at a different tier.
  • The following Maps can now be found as Blighted Maps: Acid Caverns, Bone Crypt, Caldera, Cells, Cursed Crypt, Dungeon, Gardens, Glacier, Laboratory, Lair, Lookout, Mausoleum, Museum, Necropolis, Overgrown Shrine, Tower, Toxic Sewer, Underground River and Waste Pool.
  • Some of the Map Bosses you are required to defeat to upgrade your Pantheon have changed as a result of these Atlas changes.
  • Crafting Recipes that were previously unlocked in Maps that have been removed are now found within other Maps currently on the Atlas.
  • Vaal Vessels found in the Vaal Temple Map no longer have bonus chances to drop Vaal Temple Maps.
  • Some Divination Cards have found new homes as a result of these Atlas Changes:
  • The Price of Protection can now drop in Vaal Side Areas in Maps.
  • Azyran's Reward can now drop in the Laboratory Map.
  • Humility can now drop in the Frozen Cabins Map.
  • The Offspring can now drop in the Peninsula Map.
  • Vinia's Token can now drop in the Core Map.

Expedition Changes

  • Expedition Remnants that provide a chance for Runic Monsters and Excavated chests to drop or contain an additional Influenced Item now have a chance of 20% (previously 35%) as they provided a higher number of Influenced Items relative to other sources.

Pantheon Souls Changes

  • Captured Soul of Captain Clayborne, The Accursed renamed to Captured Soul of Shock and Horror
  • Captured Soul of Armala, the Widow renamed to Captured Soul of Murgeth Bogsong
  • Captured Soul of Forest of Flames renamed to Captured Soul of Sumter the Twisted

  • Captured Soul of Drek, Apex Hunter renamed to Captured Soul of Stalker of the Endless Dunes
  • Captured Soul of Lycius, Midnight's Howl renamed to Captured Soul of The Forgotten Soldier

Bloodlines and Nemesis Removal

  • Bloodlines and Nemesis have been removed from the core game. Some of their modifiers have been incorporated into the new monster modifier system:
  • The Snow Bolt and Inferno Bolt Nemesis modifiers have been incorporated into the Frost Strider and Flame Strider Archnemesis modifiers.
  • The Storm Herald and Final Gasp Nemesis modifiers can now be found as Archnemesis modifiers on Rare Monsters.
  • The Union of Souls, Voidspawn of Abaxoth, Spirit Walkers and Heralds of the Obelisk Bloodlines modifiers have been incorporated into the Archnemesis modifier system, and can be found on Magic monsters.

Minor New Content and Features

Monster Balance Changes

  • Grasping Vines applied by the Bramble Valley Map Boss no longer take longer to break than other sources of Grasping Vines, and no longer disable Movement Skills.
