    Dominating Blow

    Dominating Blow is a melee attack that summons a friendly Sentinel minion on kill or sometimes when you hit a rare or unique enemy. Sentinels copy the mods of the monster it was raised from.

    Skill functions and interactions

    • Sentinels: Sentinels use regular melee attacks, as well as Shield Charge on a cooldown. They can also perform a Crusade Slam, which deals area of effect damage in a cone in front of them.
    • Sentinel types: Magic (blue named) and rare (yellow named) enemies can be made into a Sentinel using this skill, but unique monsters cannot. Magic and Rare Sentinels will keep all special attributes of the enemy it was raised from, including auras which will be applied to the player and all allies. Auras come from monster modifiers.
    • Support gems: Any support gem that can apply to both an attack as well as a minion skill will apply to both the attack made by Dominating Blow and the Sentinels. For example, Melee Splash Support will grant both the attacks made with Dominating Blow and the Sentinel's basic attacks splash damage.
    • Sentinels won't hit additional targets if the skill gems is supported by Ancestral Call Support, but will still receive the "Supported skills deal x% less Damage" penalty.
    • Dual wielding: Dual wielding attacks with Dominating Blow will alternate the weapon being swung.
    • Sentinel stats scale heavily with the gem level of Dominating Blow. For example at gem level 20 they have a base physical damage of 768 to 1,152 with a total life of 7,228 per Sentinel, while at gem level 15 their base physical damage is 461 to 692 with a total life of 4,408 per Sentinel.
    • Sentinels have 40% Elemental Resistances and 20% Chaos Resistance.
    • Sentinels have a base attack time of 1.20.
