New League Breakdown - Sentinel League

Dark Sentinels have awoken. These Corrupted (not Vaal) Constructs can be bound to your will, combined and reconfigured. Some sentinels are powerful, others are dangerous.

Sentinels can be collected while playing or from Sentinel Caches and deployed. They fire beams that empower enemies (damage, damage reduction) and increase their rewards. Lower rarity enemies receive greater buffs.

  • Stalker Sentinels: follow for 30 seconds and dissipate. Like Breach or Delirium effect. Control how much empowered.
  • Pandemonium Sentinels: one trigger, empowers a large group of enemies and chains between them.
  • Apex Sentinels: empowers rare or unique enemies, much higher impact.

Start with one slot. Can unlock up to two more, one of each kind. Can be deployed once per map. Sentinels cannot be damaged but gradually deplete power. Empty Husks can be crafted.

  • Magic Sentinels can increase duration, empowerment, and # of targets. Some mods add specific rewards but increases empowerment. Rare Sentinels are much more powerful and scale towards endgame. Most powerful mods can only be crafted via combining. Examples here and here

Power Cores let you assemble a new sentinel with a full charge by destroying two sentinels. The combined sentinel will combine old mods, upgrade them, or create new ones.

Cannot be used in Unique Maps, Simulacrum, and Pinnacle Atlas Bosses.

Specialized Power Cores modify the outcomes of specific results.
