    Default Request Inquisitor 3.0 rotation

    Request Inquisitor 3.0 rotation with all the abilities in use... i got an idea of what to do with hd,ai,nr,ss, but it just feels so awkward atm for me... just doesn't flow like the old rotation.

    I adapt to suit the situation, if its an expert boss and I am covering spiritual deficiency and clinging spirit I'll prioritise these things, and open with a hard cast BoD + SD > Dots > BoJ's > CD block then into maintenance.

    If its a raid situation where i don't need to prioritise debuffs and I need to delay CD's until support buffs are up, but i have more time to pre load things then i will pre load some stacks of zealotry and do a similar things without the SD ofc.

    If i want to unload immediaitely with no wating then hard cast fana + Bod and immediately into CD's.

    But the basic rotation hasn't changed at all really, your still working the priorities, DoT's channels and Bolts.

    Scourge > SH > AI > NR > SS > BoD > BoR > BoJ.

    The highest DPS is acheived by working it out in a way that keeps the DoT's up without delaying on the channels and keeps 100% uptime on mental resilience.

    * When should I use my channels? One after another? With Fanatacism? One every 30 seconds (for Mental Resilience)?
    * Can someone list the new CD block?
    * I assume the level 65 mastery that is the channel works with Approbation (reduces CD of other channels)?

    When someone says C/D block I think of Orchestra + Flaring Power.

    I'm sure that the best option would be to use all 5 of your channels + the BoD's that go with them in that time period.

    And, it's pretty ugly that you got 5 channels nearly back to back, but on the bright side you can move for 3 of them.

    Do you delay SS 30s then to keep 100% uptime and then use all channels on CD (as long as DoTs are up)?

    Adaptation of a previous guide for 3.0. Thanks to Ahov and Seatin for their guides. Guide is incomplete and I haven't finished modifying my kalerts for 3.0. I do not have AoE or survival/utility or masteries in this guide. Comments are welcome

    Basic DPS
    Shaman offsoul.

    Highest Damage
    Dark Water

    Variants:
    Pull 1 point out of defiler for Dark Passage or Glacial Shield. Those without defiler can use Shaman, Oracle, or Sentinel for an offsoul


    Buffs

    Rage Blight
    Shroud of Agony - Without Benevolent Presence
    Armor of Awakening/All Armors
    Spiritual Scruitiny
    Spiritual Protection
    Blighted Greed - Cast on Tank
    Vengeance of the Winter Storm - purge protection

    DO NOT USE LINK OF DISTRESS

    Spells and acronyms
    Bolt of Judgement - BoJ
    Bolt of Retribution - BoR
    Bolt of Depravity - BoD
    Fanaticism - Fana
    Nysyr's Rebuke - NR
    Aggressive Inquisition - AI
    Unified Theory - UT
    Harsh Discipline - HD
    Soul Stream - SS
    Sanction Heretic - SH
    Scourge
    Vex
    Soul Drain - SD
    Circle of Oblivion - CoO

    Concepts

    Life and Death Concord and Unified Theory
    Use life damage spells to build 4 stacks of Life and Death Concord and gain Unified Theory, making your Bolt of Depravity instant cast. Nysyr's Rebuke builds 4 stacks and Soul Stream builds 3 stacks

    Echoing Concord
    Reduces the cast time of your next Bolt of Judgement/retribution. This is no longer consumed by instant Bolts of Judgement

    Darkness
    3 Stacks of Darkness from Dark Water keeps dps running. Do not let this drop off if you are running a cabalist spec. If you let this drop frequently or refresh too early too often do not run a cabalist spec or learn to play better.

    Fanaticism/Zealotry
    Fanaticism gives your next attack a 100% chance to crit. Zealotry gives the attack after that a 30% increased chance to crit. Fanaticism is important to use combined with Nysyr's Rebuke, but Fanaticism itself only forces the first tick of Nysyr's to crit. Nysyr's Rebuke gets the 30% increased chance to crit for every tick of Zealotry, so it is important to use an instant attack before Nysyr's Rebuke, the best one being Bolt of Depravity (instant)

    Radical Coalescence
    This skill resets all your inquisitor abilities, gives you Unified Theory and Fanaticism, and allows all your channels to be cast while moving. This should be used in pve immediately after your burst rotation (Fana>BoD>BoD>AI>BoD) to repeat your burst

    Mental Resilience/Approbation/clipping
    Mental Resilience gives you a 6% damage buff for 30s after casting any channel. HD is the best option to continue the damage buff. HD isn't a significant amount of damage, and you get the most out of it by clipping it after 1 seconds (2 ticks), by casting another spell once the channel's Global Cooldown is finisheshed. HD is the only channel you want to clip with any regularity.

    Approbation gives any channel on cooldown a 3s reduction in cooldown. This is important to keep NR/AI in line after RC, but you'll see SS gets 12s+3s reduction during the 2m cooldown block and a 6s+3s reduction.


    Highest Damage Bolt
    Your highest damage life bolt depends on several circumstances:
    With any stacks of echoing concord: BoR
    With cast time reduction from Archon/Beastmaster: BoR
    Without cast time reduction or while moving: BoJ

    Damage
    The basic damage rotation of the Inquisitor is Scourge > Vex > 4x Bolts Macro> Instant BoD
    Refresh Scourge and Vex immediately as they fall off

    The burst rotation is
    Fanaticism > UT BoD> Nysyr's Rebuke > Aggressive Inquisition > BoD

    With Radical Coalescence its

    Fana > UT BoD> NR > AI > UT BoD > RC > Fanaticism > BoD > Nysyr's > Aggressive Inquisition > BoD

    If scourge/vex are going to drop off before Nysyr's finishes its cast, and you havn't used Fanaticism/BoD yet use the filler macro. If casting Scourge/Vex after RC is cast gives the best damage in the rotation.

    Ideal start with raid burst:
    HD > Scourge > SH > (Raid buffs) SS > Fana > UT BoD> NR > AI > UT BoD > Scourge > SH RC > Fanaticism > BoD > Nysyr's > Aggressive Inquisition > BoD

    suppressmacrofailures
    cast Nysyr's Rebuke
    cast Aggressive Inquisition

    Would it be worth putting Soul Stream at the end of this macro and casting it right after AI for 3 stacks of Life and Death Concord,

    so it would go NR-UT BOD-IA-SS-BoJ or BoR - UT BoD-

    AI followed immediately by a UT BOD is part of the burst as it gives you an additional SoC consumption proc. AI>BoD>SH>Scourge>UT>BoD gives an additional proc

    SS is used independantly and for max dps on cooldown. Its only used in the CD blocks to jumpstart your initial 2 minute CD block during the raid burn.

    Add: Fanaticism needs to be used the second its off cd or not at all if you want to use it on the 30s. Don't wait for anything else, your CD block depends on it being up.

    forgot a couple macros

    #show Radical Coalescence
    suppressmacrofailures
    cast Radical Coalescence
    cast Bolt of Depravity

    #show Fanaticism
    suppressmacrofailures
    cast Fanaticism
    cast Bolt of Depravity


    EDIT:
    You CAN macro HD and SS together if you are lazy but I don't recommend it.

    Is the 5% damage from using Defiler as the 5 point soul better than the 10% spellpower from Oracle 5pt?

    Oracle grants you 10% Spellpower and 3.75%Damage
    Using Defiler as the Subsoul grants you 5%Damage, 10% Wisdom and Rage Blight (and Marrow Harvest)

    I have not done offsoul comparisons. 10 Shaman/5 defiler and 10 Cabalist/5 defiler used to be the best.
