I have a WB/Invul/Leviathan at lvl 50 and they are great and lots of fun. The Invul is a great Armor set for Sentinels. It doesn't need enemies nearby to increase Defense like Tankers or Scrappers, so the defense is slightly higher amd this allows your to reach defense Soft cap easier. The Damage is a AoE beast; however, the damage is not the strongest. With that said you have to be creative and use procs wisely and it can help the toon a lot. The Epic Powers is where I got Knockout Blow and it's my boss killing attack. With the -Defense from WB and -Resist Proc in some powers, Knockout Blow hit hard. I ended up Slotting KO Blow with 2 Hami Acc/Dam Enhancements and 4 Damage Procs. I know its not the best slotting, but it works for me. I hope this helps a little.

Obviously I'm not the person you're responding to but you are fishing for information. 

I decided to keep both the T1 and T2 powers but this had nothing to do with the Sentinel inherent.  I kept Aqua Bolt as a filler for my attack routine since I am running my Water/Dark Sent without Hasten.  If I had bothered to build for high recharge (and include Hasten on top of it), then I would have tried for Hydro Blast -> Dehydrate -> Hydro Blast or something along those lines.  Instead I run either Aqua Bolt -> Hydro Blast -> Aqua Bolt -> Water Jet -> [slight pause for the Tidal mechanic] ->Water Jet or some variation placing Dehydrate as either a Tidal builder or spender.  Water Jet's cooldown reset isn't really "instant", there is a slight delay, and it has a slight downtime of 8 seconds.  I happen to like Dehydrate's heal over time but I don't often bother with maximizing it through the Tidal system.  Instead I prefer gaining the increased benefits to Water Jet for single target or Water Burst for AoE.  My Dehydrate has the proc with a chance for endurance so I don't often open with it, and instead use it either before or after my Water Jet.  I squeeze in other powers like Whirlpool/Geyser depending on their cool downs or Water Burst for groups.  I tend to follow a floating priority system when using Water Blast powers vs anything really hard set.  I'm tossing ideas your way more for something to think about than any real hard/fast rules.

I put 5 pieces of the Sentinel ATO Superior Opportunity Strikes into Whirlpool (all but the Accuracy/Endurance/Damage/Recharge mod) with the Achilles' Heel chance for resistance debuff.  The Sentinel ATO proc "Chance for Opportunity" has a reasonable chance to trigger in Whirlpool even against 1 target and it will check that chance to trigger against all 10 enemies it can hit.  So by opening with Whirlpool in this manner I can often get a substantial boost to Opportunity and quickly gain that benefit.  Additionally, Whirlpool has a good chance to inflict the -20% resistance debuff in that Achilles' Heel proc against every enemy it hits.  So it can provide some significant resistance debuff.  Slotting in a chance for recharge slow from some of the sets that can do that isn't a terrible way to go either, but I am biased towards enhancing powers intended for damage with damage perks/sets.

this helps a lot, I would like some insight in to this build i built its more of an aoe house with a ST strike chain of aqua bolt--> hydro blast---> steam spray---> mind prode/ shockwave/water burst 3 Tidal power. i will normally open for groups with tidal power+ geyser--> whirl pool--> stream spray. i have found that i love stream spray a lot more than i thought. also energize is there a better 4 slot for that power?
