-The thread is very similar to the 1.4 with the following minor adjustments;
- Edited out some builds that are no longer viable
- Crit is no longer a MUST have for CP, so you will no longer see that section.
- Edited the stat priority to decrease the value of crit and increase the value of wisdom
My previous guides can be found:
Why Bring Inquisitor?
- 7% additional magic damage debuff provided by Soul Drain (stacks with all others EXCEPT Censure and Neddra's Torture (3%)
- AoE DPS is only slightly below an SC, but we provided ^^ to increase SC and others in raid (Should we have a Cabalist spec setup, our AoE is immense)
- It's another cleric, capable of other roles if the need should arise
Crit Rating: will be attained from gear. Avoid focusing on it.
Intelligence: provides 1 crit rating per and .26 sp
Focus: Raid 1 cap is ~220, Raid 2 is ~320
Spell Power: Begin stacking after you’ve reached the recommended crit ratio
Wisdom: increasess mana regeneration by .33 and spell power by .76 per, and increases total mana
Armor and Recommended Usage
Armor of Awakening: increases spell damage by 5%, critical hit rating by 5%, mana regeneration by 10%, and increases damage taken by the cleric by 5%
Recommended: All PvE circumstances unless it runs the risk of death.
Armor of Devotion: increases Spell Power and Spell Crit by 42
Recommended: PvP or when an increased chance of death from mechanic is forseen
Armor of Treachery: increases armor by 215 and Endurance by 50
Recommended: Tank or when an increased chance of death from mechanics is forseen
The Original 51/10/5 inq/sent/ward
- Maximizes spell power bonus on Vex and Sanction Heretic (total of 65%)
- Provides minor off-healing via Healing Breath, Healing Spray, and Healing Current
- Allows for movement based DPS via Waterjet
- Will maintain the highest consistent single-target inquisitor DPS
- AoE dps is less than that of some hybrids, specifically where Cabalist is concerned
The Offhealer 44/12/10 Inq/Justi/Sent
- Provides nice offhealing via Justicar soul
- Stacks Conviction using BoJ
- Can provide large passive AoE healing using Soul Drain / CoO
- Loses about ~200 DPS from other Inq specs
DPS Rotation and Tips
Single Target Rotation:
[if in raid] Soul Drain (maintain this debuff at all times if you're raiding)
BoJ spam, use Fanaticism + SH (if you're not 51pt Inq, use Fanaticism with BoD)
[If 51pt] Use Nysyr’s Rebuke on cooldown
- Make sure you are using Salvation, Cavalier, Mien of Honor
- Doctrine of Loyalty for quick AoE heals, stacking Conviction using BoJ spam
- Use L&D procs as they come up, then return to normal rotation
Fanaticism + Soul Drain
Will targets live long enough to dot? If yes then multi-target Vex, if no then go to next step…
Is Soul Drain up? If yes, cast.
If not, use Circle of Oblivion.
Otherwise, go Cabalist.
Tips + Macros
- Only use Fanaticism with BoD or Soul Drain if you are <51pts. Use Fanaticism with Sanction Heretic and SD if you are 51pt build. They receive the highest benefit.
- Make use of Waterjet/LV while moving, or if casting BoJ/BoD would force you to wait before refreshing DoTs
- If at all possible, reapply DoTs when Corporal Punishment is up. CP's 15% damage boost only benefits spells cast while it is active, it does not passively effect DoTs already on the target.
Best in Slot Gear List
- This items listed first are based on Focus and maintaing ideal Crit Ratio, not specific EP values, however this will change with the next update.
- If you can upgrade a piece of gear that allows you to maintain your Focus cap, and maintains at least a 1sp to 3sc ratio, then it is an upgrade.
- I.E. 4sp vs 11sc, the piece with sp outweighs the piece with sc. 10sp vs 33sc, the sc outweighs sp.
Sokanon's Inquisitor BiS
Continuously being updated.
If there is anything you think that should be included but isn't, feel free to post. I am still in the process of reorganizing my BiS list, but you should be able to just rank things base on EP value until I do so.
Hope you enjoyed the write-up and you can look forward to future updates! Keep fighting for Inquisitor DPS!
