Idk what sentinel to get
I have enough for a sentinel blueprint, but there's the problem, I don't know which is better to use, wyrm or shade. I mean, I'm kinda stealthy, but I think wyrm would be better protection-wise while I use my bow. What do you guys suggest?

I love the wyrm myself. It is awesome at managing targets in close. It isn't alot of damage but it staggers almost anything that gets close to me giving me time to react.

Go with shade imo.
Not sure why the wyrm would be better protection? the stunn? It doesn't seem to do that much.

What mods do you have on it's weapons? or is that some inate ability I've missed or that my Wyrm doesnt perform?

I have it set up with its base line mods.Only mods on him are "Point Strike" And "Stormbringer". I haven't ranked his "Crowd Dispersion" but I have ranked "Warrior" Quite a bit. I've never used shade. But I've come to love Wyrm. Specially when using a shotgun.

I recommend both. Hear me out: I have both, and I use both. Wyrm is great for stand-up fighting styles and Infested swarming attacks. It's CC is good now that the Green Flash of Doom has been fixed(?). In defence it adds an extra gun to your team; this can make all the difference for soloing.
That said, I love running the Shade. It makes you invisible. Max Ghost fast, and you'll enjoy it, unless you're playing Nyx. Kinda cancels out her uber if nothing can see you to shoot you. Also, guys in defence missions will shoot defence object instead of you when you disappear.

I'd say shade works best because of the cloak, allowing you to pull of stealth kills if you like to, and often turning you invisible when you need it most (like when you're knocked down by something, he cloaks you, enemies won't finish you off as you get back up). Also, because of the cloak, he levels up way faster since the thing actually survives.
I've had the wyrm for about a week and it's only lvl 14. It just seems like it can't take a hit at all! It is useful against infestation though since they can't really get to it, and if you have a frost mod on him, he makes running from them a lot easier.

Well, I looked at all the advice, and thanks guys. I think I'm gonna go with wyrm and then save up for shade second. I like charging with dual pistols after using bow, and I think wyrm will work better with that. Anyway, thanks for the advice.

their gun damage sucks but put a freeze and stun mod on them and they become way more effective, slowing down mobs around you. saved me a few times
