Perfect timing. Was looking through Sentinel skills this morning and when I saw Shield Throw I thought to myself it would be such a cool and fun looking skill to use. Now I know exactly what I’ll start leveling after dinner.

Are there any leveling uniques you’d recommend?

Why did you put only 1 point to Ricochet? Focused Campaign halves number of ricochets rounded down, so 3 / 2 = 1 (but 4 / 2 = 2).
Why did you put one point to Aegis?
Nice build btw, very defensive.

I wanna say it rounds up but havent tested

Started this as my first build in LE, going pretty smoothly so far! Any advice for a Loot Filter for this guy like your other builds have? Also wondering when you start to see the Idols with the chance to proc Smite, so far I’ve just been manually casting every few seconds while leveling, which is preventing me from having Holy Aura on my bars. Been pretty nice to level though, went Warpath for the first bit until I got Shield Throw + the ascendancies unlocked, only level 39 but deathless up until these void guys in Desert/Rust Land I think.

Welcome to the community!

I dont currently have one for this build(lootfilter)
Smite idols are rare, but eventually theyll drop although probly not untill after heoborea of even into quite a few echo runs in the monolith, its all RNG

For uniques, the Calamity helm and Soulfire relic are pretty nuts. For empowered mono/very high arena you do better switching to crit build and flat +20 dmg, but thats absolute end-game.

Expect the idols to rarely show up around level 55-60. I’ve gotten 3-4 by the time I was lvl 70. I used fire damage/ignite ones up until I got 4 Smite ones with armor shred on throwing attacks. I picked up about 15 of those idols in 60 hours of play, they are pretty rare.
