Path of Exile Sentinel Content and Features

The main feature of the 3.18 update is the Sentinel challenge league. There are three classes of Sentinels – Stalker, Pandemonium, and Apex. Each has its own unique features and way how it interacts with your enemies. Here’s what the official description says:

“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.”

Their behaviour will be customizable via the Sentinel Controller, and when they run out of charge, you will be able to scrap them and make new ones via the assemble menu. Other new content includes 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 more.
