Alongside the release of Delve, we've created a brand new set of skills to better enable ally-centric playstyles for the Templar. Today we're showing off one of those skills -- and it's not what you think!

The skill...? Herald of Purity. Herald of Purity, like the other Herald skills, adds damage to your attacks and spells -- Physical Damage in this case. Killing enemies with Herald of Purity active summons a Sentinel of Purity for you. You can have up to four of these beefy minions at once. They have a basic melee attack for use against single enemies, and an area-of-effect slam for groups. Killing enemies while you have four Sentinels of Purity active will restore the life and refresh the duration of one of them, rather than killing and replacing it.

On-kill effects such as this lose some usefulness against tough bosses, so you also have a chance to summon or refresh a Sentinel of Purity whenever you hit a Unique enemy.

You can specialise in this Herald to some degree with one of the new Guardian Ascendancy notable passives, Radiant Crusade, which boosts the amount of added Physical Damage you get from the effect of the Herald, as well as increasing the area of effect of your Sentinels of Purity. The other new notable after it even gives them a new, more powerful slam skill on a cooldown.

And of course, you'll be able to further capitalise on your minions with a number of new passive skills in the passive skill tree.

Check out Herald of Purity in action in the video below!
