[WIP] Sentinal (Oathkeeper/Occultist)

This is the first time I’ve created a character of my own from scratch using the builder so I could use some assistance and maybe some pointers if possible. I’ve noticed by viewing other top end builds that it’s a bit light on its passive resistances and health/armor rating … any help making this a valid and workable end game build would be appreciated as I’ve done a prelim test and it IS a fun class. I don’t claim to be a pro and the experience everyone in this forum has (I’m looking at you Mad_Lee, Veretragna & Sigatrev) is amazing. I just want to learn, get feedback on my insanity and make this as good as can be.

The basis of the build is that I wanted something similar to the Vindicator, but focused on Vitality, Acid/Poison. As it has an attack similar to Savagery I thought it would be an interesting build.

Thus the Blackguard is born.

Already finishing my sentinel build/guide :slight_smile: what is your highest SR? I can farm 75 but it’s super painful compared to warlord, you really must know what are you doing and what bosses can do to you.

Heck, if you’re building one yourself I may pull this and just remora off yours lol. I’ve been searching all over for anything and all I see are criticisms everywhere. So I figured I’d try my hand, lame as it may be. I will admit that what I’ve noticed is that it’s not as tanky as my vindicator for sure… which is why I’m almost afraid it’s not viable. Again, this is why I’m floating it to the community XD

If you are enjoying theorycrafting and building it from scratch like me, then you should continue, I can already tell you my build is different.

I started one today :rolleyes: http://www.grimdawn.com/forums/showthread.php?t=83039 but it has another audience than yours

Lots of variety in Sentinel builds, so keep going with your idea.

For example this memish Trouser Trouble

My idea is poison stacking through retaliation and run away. (Not near as powerful as IT dot, but could be fun.) The pants throw for a ranged attack.
