Since Javelin scales with Strength and Dexterity, I’m not seeing where Dexterity provides a specific benefit from tooltips anywhere I can see?

Edit: I see it now, the boots in the build. Maybe worth a mention in the “Main Interactions”?

And thanks for the guide as always!

Ill put that in there, sorry about that! Glad you were able to find it! :slight_smile:

One other question, on the Ending the Storm timeline, you’ve got “Ward When Hit” – isn’t this better served by shred lightning resist, one other layer in addition to shock to tearing down resistances?

Yes get lightning shred not ward when hit


Hi, really nice guide. I was wondering why the lootfilter shows shield and not polearm? Just because is the default one for Paladin?
Thank for the hard work, keep going!

You’ll notice it also doesn’t count Dexterity for good affixes because lord knows Sentinel didn’t really need it until now!

Wait how is that cold damage from the boots/dex interaction helping this build? What’s converting the flat cold from the boots to something useful?

Hey nice build! But I think after 0.8.3b hotfix Mourningfrost boots are useless? Because only damage from weapon count now.

Loot filter is also missing 5 sentinel specific affixes in the top filter, included added lightning damage to javelins :slight_smile: Definitely recommend people go through the loot filter and make sure it’s fitting their needs.

Anything that boosts throwing damage, elemental damage, or crits should boost that cold damage.

The hotfix said only added melee damage from the polearm matters. Throwing damage across all gear still contributes.

I practised Polearm (Naginata) fighting for four years, I can guarantee Dexterity is definitely a must-have! :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:


Yuh? Well I practised num-chux four for ours wiffout padds OAR texterridy mm no i cpel bettr.

OHHH ok let me see if I understand correctly: the cold damage from 30-something dex (let’s say it was 32 because I don’t recall exactly) gets added to the skill.

The skill is lightning, throwing and critting so you’re already scaling with lightning damage, throwing damage, crit chance/muliplier.

SO, since you’re already scaling elemental damage, throwing damage, and crit damage, the added 32 cold flat damage from the boots is scaled by the same stuff you’re already scaling with for the skill.

Did I do that right?

Javelin also converts all added damage to lightning, so the cold gets converted to lightning (Divine throws) and gets scaled with all the lightning stuff

I wanted to ask does Mourningfrost kinda double dip here ? the flat cold gets applied at 100% to throwing attacks and to melee damage, then the 20% added melee damage from polearms also adds the flat cold at 20% again ?

Edit: Ok so it used to but now doesn’t after 0.8.3b patch. Since it’s gonna be only polearm damage now, I wonder if 1h(rune hammer for + 1) + shield may be better ?

Also btw if you really want leech and don’t mind the dps loss, can swap Li’raka’s claws for Avarice until you get the blessing.

I have found Prism Wraps to be great while farming for the throwing leech blessing… some DPS to offset the loss of dex/crit, and mitigating the fire disadvantages from jewelry affixes. I think you lose less in this swap compared to using Avarice.

Oh… That’s a lot simpler than what I thought was happening. Thank you!

@boardman21 When leveling with this build, after I put 20 points into sentinel, should I go and invest in Paladin first, or does the 10 points in ‘Abyssal Endurance’ more important, and I should invest in them first?
