Jedi Sentinel Builds (updated for 1.3)

Jedi Knights in SWTOR can become one of two advanced classes at level 10, a Guardian (Tank / DPS Class) or a Sentinel (Melee DPS Class). The Sentinel uses two light sabers to do high melee dps. Sentinels have three trees to choose talents from: Watchman (DPS tree), Combat (DPS tree) and Focus (a shared DPS tree shared with the Guardian Class).

Below I will list the best sentinel builds to use for your jedi knight so you do not have to waste valuble play time figuring out what jedi sentinel builds work :)

If you wish to submit a sentinel build please email it to When you email in your build please have a link to your build, clearly list what it is for and any other relevant information I should know about this sentinel build.


The changes that effect the Jedi Sentinel in patch 1.3 are as follows:

•The tooltip for Cauterize now displays the correct damage amount. Functionality for this ability has not changed.
•Corrected an issue that prevented Ataru Form's triggered attacks from displaying visual effects in some circumstances.
•The responsiveness of Riposte and Precision Slash has been increased.
•A Sentinel's Companion Character no longer remains invisible to other players when the Sentinel uses Force Camouflage.

•Opportune Attack: This skill's tooltip now displays the correct chance for its effect to trigger (15%/30%). The skill's functionality has not changed.
•Precision Slash: This ability now costs 1 Focus and is no longer limited by the global cooldown. Its damage has been reduced, and the duration of its armor penetration debuff has been reduced by 1.5 seconds to ensure the effective duration is the same.
