Dominating Blow Guardian

The Path of Exile Heist Dominating Blow Guardian works differently from other minion builds. And that’s not a bad thing because it does its own thing. It takes a more proactive role and truly shines when it works with its army. Here’s a look at this tanky and very much formidable PoE build that has the strength to take on even the toughest of bosses.

Pros:

  • Tanky
  • League starter
  • Can defeat bosses

Cons:

  • Requires you to constantly hit bosses even though it is a minion build
