The Sentinel brings the blessings of light to all who do the will of the gods. Capable of healing many wounded at one time, Sentinels bolster their allies and protect themselves with divine wrath.
Sentinels are defensive clerics who excel at group support. Their divine powers aid the weak and ensure that everyone in their group lives through the fray.
Sentinels sacrifice offense for a strong defense, and thus struggle to deal massive damage to their opponents.

During solo/questing work the Sentinel soul is more of a support soul than a main use soul. It does have some handy spells when you get into something too deep and need a quick heal or three. But no big damaging spells.
With several AOE and raid healing abilitiea at their disposal, the sentinel soul shines bright as one of the top healing souls for the PvE enviroment.
When the going gets tough, the tough gets going. Being able to switch from single target heals to AoE heals really fast makes the Sentinel soul one of the turners of the tide in a big PvP battle. You can even stay alive while someone is attacking you and still heal others at the same time, giving them time to kill your opponents attacking you.
Unable to reconcile the contradictions between the gods, the Elf initiate Niyol Cliffswind made a pilgrimage to Hammerknell. In the capitol of the Elves' ancient enemies, the Dwarves, he tried to learn how Bahralt's bustling cities could coexist with Tavril's pristine wilderness.
His days there were a misery: jostled and berated, unable to gain audience with a priest of Bahralt. Then one night, a lynch mob pulled Niyol from his bed. "Filthy spy!" they cried, for an Elvish surprise attack had breached the city walls. Dragged toward the gibbet, Niyol heard the clamor as fighting raged through Hammerknell.
The Elf vanguard burst into the grand hall just as the hangman fitted a noose to Niyol's neck. A moment later, the dwarf fell with an arrow in his throat, knocking Niyol off his bench. The rope drew tight.
Battle choked the Dwarven hall, yet no combatant who fought near Niyol succumbed to their wounds. Even as he swung from the noose, the initiate mouthed a healing prayer, offering his last breath to save kinfolk and persecutors alike.
White light poured from the eyes of every statue to a god in Hammerknell, the words of his prayer booming from stone lips. Anyone who saw the light was healed; everyone who heard the words succumbed to a quiet serenity.
As the Elves lay down their arms, the Dwarves cut Niyol down and declared him a saint. Both sides pledged alliance ever after, and the mendicant went on his way.
The Elf commander had heard of Niyol's pilgrimage, and asked if he had learned how the gods could overcome their conflicts.
"Each god values the life of each and every mortal. In this, there is unity," Niyol said with the sure, clear voice of enlightenment.
Niyol spent many years spreading his revelation, performing miracles, finding in every culture a link to the divine. When the gods formed the Vigil, Niyol's sentinels spread hope through unity to all the people of Telara.
