    Default Inqusidor Power problems

    How on earth can one get around this problem? Even with using the power drain which gives you about 1000 mana, on a normal rotation of skills mana drops like nothing in this soul.

    Anyone know of any way to make the DPS of the Inqusidor last the duration of a boss fight?

    drink mana potions early, sub into cabalist for sigil of power/oblit on singles and tyranny on AoE based fights. Timing makes a fair bit of difference.

    I shouldn't be forced to use mana pots or a certain sole to achieve mana stability, sorry to say but that's just stupid; every sole should have some ability which when used correctly should at least let your mana last through short boss fights.

    Even when mainly just rotating insta cast dots, which is the best damage to mana ratio of Inquisidor skills, I still run out of power pretty fast.

    Now if the inqusidor soal did some nasty spike damage, the high power consumption would make sense; but inqusidors damage isn't that amazing, especially compared to a pyro mage which will never run out of power.

    Virtually any secondary sole you could viably choose will have some mana regen ability in it. Cab is a good choice because it has good damage synergy and Sigil of Power is a good regen ability especially when Tyranny is available. But you're welcome to, eg, secondary a melee tree and spend 10 seconds every minute spamming melee damage if you prefer.

    You're not pigeonholed into one tree, and not every calling/soul has to feel like playing the same game. It's fine for one to feel like an infinite resource build while another feels like a resource management build. With only 2 dots and a reactive to track, it's not as if Inq is too complex to spend some effort managing mana.

    At 50, IMO, just drink between pulls or any other downtime and always use Aggressive Renewal when its up, and you'll only have to pot in extended boss battles.
