The Sentinel Overview Map

Battleborn Story Mission - The Sentinel Overview Map

The Gear chests in this mission are fixed as they always spawn at the same location. Getting these chest can be tricky to get as they are hidden away behind a barrier. You have to find an alternative route to get these.

The Guardians Vyn & Arc are kinda the same bosses only with different elements attached to them. The second Boss does seem to have some upgrades to his attacks as he will have a more direct attack and can summon minions. This all sets you up for the final boss The Old Sentinel as he will continue the trend.

Vyn’s laser beam attack  can be dodged if you go stand behind cover. If you see him charge the beam run and hide. If you have a ranged hero walking circles around the pillars helps you avoid incoming damage. The same goes for Arc, but buying a buildable and using the one of the jumppads to get higher up can result into the boss going for the turret instead of you.

Legendary Gear

The Guardian Arc is able to drop some legendary gear.He has 1 legendary drop specific for Normal difficulty  and 1 more for Advanced difficulty.

The Old Sentinel

The Old Sentinel plays like the next level of Guardian fights. You will encounter some of the same attacks. Walking circles around the small hill as a ranged hero helps you stay in cover. If the old sentinel stomps on the ground a bolder will  pop-up, try destroying these before they hit the ground. If these bolders land on the ground they will become those smaller versions of himself. Taking them out lets you control the fight. If the old sentinel has like half of his life left he will  try to restore himself by walking to one of the side platforms. Here he will recharge himself. You can take down the shard crystals before he makes it to the platform. You won’t need to farm the shards because by now you should have activated all your gear during the mission and if you stand on the platforms to long they will drop down and take you along the ride. With 25% health left the Sentinel will spawn a lot of minions to spam you. Keep your distance as they run towards you, you can use your offhand melee attack to push back enemies.

Legendary Gear

The Old Sentinel is able to drop some legendary gear. He has 2 legendary drops specific for Normal difficulty  and 2 more for Advanced difficulty.
