Last Epoch Class Tier List

If you want to learn about the most powerful classes you should try, take a look at our Last Epoch class tier list and pick the best ones.

Sentinel is one of the five base classes in Last Epoch. As a heavily armored warrior, the Sentinel can withstand significant damage while dishing out powerful attacks. Their primary attribute is Strength. A Sentinel Build is a specific set of skills, passive nodes, and gear players can customize their Sentinel character to fit their playstyle. Now, let’s look at the best Sentinel build in Last Epoch.

Updated March 5, 2024 by Marc Santos: This list of Best Sentinel Builds for Last Epoch remains largely relevant even in the release version of the game. While some builds took a hit following nerfs to abilities, items, and game systems, the core ideas behind each build still work in the 1.0 sandbox. We’ve updated this article to keep things in-line with how the launch version of Last Epoch works — the themes of each build are the same, but the recommended gear and skills for each have been retouched so the builds can keep up with the game’s current state of balance.

5 Forge Army Forge Guard Build

Bathe in Fire and Flames

Forge Army Forge Guard Build

Build Summary

Core Skills

  • Warpath
  • Void Cleave
  • Manifest Armor
  • Forge Strike

Recommended Gear

  • Sunforged Set
  • Vortex Pennant (Relic)
  • Volcanus (2H Sword)

Main Stats

  • Fire Damage
  • Minion Damage
  • Strength
  • Attunement

Pros

Cons

  • Very high Fire Damage
  • Hands-free gameplay
  • Mana-hungry
  • Requires high skill specialization levels

The Forge Army Forge Guard build is a tanky minion summoning build that focuses on summoning Forged Weapons and Manifested Armor while shredding enemies with Warpath and Void Cleave. The build is known for its lazy gameplay, making it ideal for those who enjoy watching movies or Netflix while playing.

Convert Warpath and Void Cleave to deal Fire damage with the Earthscorcher and Hellish Chasm passives, and take all the Fire damage nodes for Manifest Armor and Forge Strike.

4 Smite Warpath Paladin build

Spin hard, win harder

Whirlwind Warpath Forge Guard Sentinel build

Build Summary

Core Skills

  • Warpath
  • Smite
  • Healing Hands
  • Holy Aura

Recommended Gear

  • Volcanus (2H Sword)
  • Vortex Pennant (Relic)

Main Stats

  • Fire Damage
  • Melee Damage
  • Spell Damage
  • Chance to Ignite
  • Strength
  • Attunement

Pros

Cons

  • No mana costs for Warpath and Healing Hands
  • High AOE and Single-Target damage
  • Unlimited healing
  • Auto-casted Smite does not proc Healing Hands
  • Outpaced by other builds
  • Prone to getting one-shot

Much like the previous Warpath build, this one focuses on dealing Fire damage to everything on the screen. The difference here is that instead of using Forged Weapons, this build auto-casts Smite through Warpath’s Winds of Justice passive, which gives it a chance to cast Smite every time it hits an enemy. Smite itself turns into a single-target devastator with the Hands of Aurelus and Seraph Blade passives from Healing Hands.

While spinning, the build also has a chance to throw axes and launch divine bolts from Vortex Pennant as well as the Divine Bolt and Axe Thrower passives from the Paladin and Sentinel trees. You can make the build even better by using Last Epoch’s legendary items, but it’ll work well even without them.

3 Smelter’s Wrath Build

Big Explosions with Big Damage Numbers

Smelter's Wrath Build

Build Summary

Core Skills

  • Smelter’s Wrath
  • Void Cleave
  • Lunge
  • Ring of Shields
  • Manifest Armor

Recommended Gear

  • Eternal Eclipse (2H Sword)

Main Stats

  • Void Damage
  • Fire Damage
  • Strength
  • Attunement

Pros

Cons

  • High AOE Burst Damage
  • Alternates between Void and Fire damage
  • Suffers in single-target fights
  • Immobile

This build alternates between dealing Fire and Void damage with Smelter’s Wrath and Void Cleave. Both skills excel at dealing AoE damage, though the former is a charged attack that hits over a wider area while the latter has an instant cast time. The centerpiece of this build is Eternal Eclipse, a Unique 2-Handed Sword that grants Fire Melee Attacks extra Void Damage and vice versa every two seconds. Manifest Armor and Ring of Shields are here to protect players as they charge up Smelter’s Wrath.

The build deals extremely high burst damage, especially once players stack up their Fire and Void Damage stats. However, it isn’t as mobile as many other builds, and that could lead to death if there are too many incoming attacks. Also, most players won’t be able to use this build fully until the mid-late part of Last Epoch’s campaign.

2 Smiter Paladin Build

Raining Down Holy Lightning

Smiter Paladin Build

Build Summary

Core Skills

  • Smite
  • Sigils of Hope
  • Healing Hands

Recommended Gear

Main Stats

  • Lightning Damage
  • Attunement

Pros

Cons

  • Rapid-fire Smite casts
  • Good AOE and Single-Target damage
  • Very high mana consumption
  • Gear dependent

The Smiter Paladin Build focuses on maximizing the damage dealt by Smite, an ability that uses holy fire to burn enemies. The build converts Smite into a Lightning-based ability through the Order of Lagon passive and its surrounding nodes. The unique Devotion amulet is crucial for this build as it increases lightning damage, cast speed, and adaptive spell damage based on the amount of mana the player is missing. The build also includes using Sigils of Hope as well as Healing Hands, which can be modded to be cast every time Smite is used.

The Desperate Measures passive for Smite on the top-left of the specialization tree is a must-have for this build. It lets players cast Smite even when they have no mana left. This naturally synergizes with Devotion’s negative mana requirements.

1 Autobomber Void Knight Build

Spewing Void Bombs Everywhere

Autobomber Void Knight Build

Build Summary

Core Skills

  • Devouring Orb
  • Anomaly
  • Lunge

Recommended Gear

  • Ravenous Void (Gloves)
  • Paranoia (Helmet)
  • Siphon of Anguish (Ring)

Main Stats

  • Void Damage
  • Vitality
  • Spell Damage

Pros

Cons

  • Very good AOE and Single-Target damage
  • Easy to use
  • Relies on auto-cast exploit
  • Requires high skill point investment

The Autobomber Void Knight Build allows players to use Anomaly and Devouring Orb to kill everything in their path while running through any content. This build is potent, and it utilizes Void-themed Sigils of Hope to increase its survivability and Void damage. Skills in Last Epoch can be auto-cast by using third-party software or certain tricks with control inputs.

Devouring Orb and Anomaly are the stars of this build, and they leave plenty of space for experimentation with other skills. Smite is a good low-cost alternative that also scales with Spell modifiers, giving players a DPS option for when both core skills are already active.
