    Default Competitive ranged single target build

    Hi I've been looking at specs inq, Defiler and runeshaper mainly looking for an alternative to shaman what does similar dps but they don't even come close? And have more going on? Am I missing something?

    Inquisitor is similar to shaman, so be sure to find a guide on this to ensure you've got the right spec/rotation.

    Inquisitor is the best ranged ST DPS. But if you want something that handles target switching well and can do some AoE cleave give this a shot.

    Thanks for replies I've tried that spec you linked but havnt tried it as a ranged spec was always melee... Could give it another whirl... Are there any up to date inq guides?

    I'm not sure if there's an in depth current one. I'll look over the one I wrote for my guild a year or so ago and post it later on today.

    It's up.

    The guide above is fine, except for fanaticism with Bolt of Depravity. Retribution hits harder than Depravity (Ret+Judgement > Depravity+DoT). Depravity only serves as a function to keep your retribution at 1 sec cast.

    Therefore build up stacks of concord (you will get a few more than you need to over time) then unleash a flurry of retributions in a row with fanaticism and stacks of fanatics faith. Hopefully you can get a channel of Aggressive Inquisition on your highest number of faith stacks too. Do not use fanaticism with Aggressive Inquisition except for your opening rotation.

    Scourge also benefits from faith stacks, so you may sometimes want to cast this before Sanction, but rarely this lines up in such a way.

    I don't use any macro's for Inquisitor, I find it more hassle than good as there's always scenarios where you may not want to do that specific scenario.

    Interesting. I'll give your method a try at some point and see how it lines up with my usual parses.

    I'd never considerd BoD being inferior to BoJ. I'll give it a whirl and update my guide accordingly.

    I think it would be hard to notice the differences in parsing, considering you crit so much anyway. Better to just see the raw damage differences in combat log.
