Absolution - Path of Exile

Inspired by the Templar’s Hierophant ascendancy class, Path of Exile created the Absolution Absolution skill gem. When Absolution Absolution’s damaging shockwave kills an enemy, it creates a Sentinel of Absolution which also casts its own shockwaves.

It is a new Strength/Intelligence Skill Gem. Requires Level 12, 21 Str, 14 Int. Tag: Spell, Minion, Duration, AoE, Physical, Lightning. Cost: (9-26) Mana. Cast Time: 0.75 sec. Critical Strike Chance: 5.00%. Effectiveness of Added Damage: 110%.

Damages enemies in an area, applying a debuff for a short duration. If a non-unique enemy dies while affected by the debuff, the enemy’s corpse will be consumed to summon a Sentinel of Absolution for a longer secondary duration, or to refresh the duration and life of an existing one instead if you have the maximum number of them.

  • Base duration is 1.00 seconds
  • Deals (19–408) to (28–612) Physical Damage
  • This Spell and Minions Convert 50% of Physical Damage to Lightning Damage
  • Maximum 3 Summoned Sentinels of Absolution
  • Base secondary duration is 10 seconds
  • 25% chance to Summon a Sentinel of Absolution on Hitting a Unique Enemy

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.
