Sentinel Information

Sentinels combine biotic and tech abilities. Typically, they use biotic abilities and advanced healing skills to defend allies, though they can also disrupt opponents with biotic or tech attacks. They are more efficient at tech and Biotics than other classes, but at the expense of combat. Sentinels can only use Light Armor, and receive no advanced weapon training. 

Gameplay focus is on protecting the party using kinetic barriers and healing it with advanced medical training.
