    Default Ahov's 61 Inquisitor Guide

    61 Inquisitor/10 Cabalist/5 Defiler is the top ranged dps spec for clerics.

    In this thread I may shorten ability names.
    BoR = Bolt of Retribution
    SH = Sanction Heretic
    S = Scourge
    V = Vex
    NR = Nysyr's Rebuke
    DW = Dark Water
    BoJ = Bolt of Judgment
    BoD = Bolt of Depravity

    Active Buffs

    Inquisitor: Armor of Awakening, Spiritual Scrutiny, Shroud of Agony, Perseverance
    Defiler: Rage Blight, Blighted Greed (applied on defiler; if no defiler, apply on tank)

    Macros

    SH/BoR

    Code:
    #show Sanction Heretic
    suppressmacrofailures
    cast Sanction Heretic
    cast bolt of retribution
    cast bolt of judgment
    cast marrow harvest
    Cooldown BoD

    Code:
    #show Fanaticism
    suppressmacrofailures
    cast fanaticism
    cast bolt of depravity
    Other skills to have on your bar

    Inquisitor: Scourge, Vex, Soul Drain, Bolt of Judgment, Confound, Purge, Radical Coalescence, Judicial Privilege, Bolt of Depravity, Circle of Oblivion, Bolt of Retribution

    Cabalist: Dark Water, Bound Fate, Tyranny of Death, Curse of Discord

    What's new with 2.3 Hotfix #13?

    The Inquisitor rotation has fundamentally changed. Within the spec itself, Spiritual Scrutiny now changes our GCD to one second, making BoJ our primary bolt. However, using an insta-cast BoD now grants two stacks of Echoing Concord, allowing for fast-cast BoRs, where they will be prioritized over BoJ. Finally, the Cabalist dot Dark Water has been buffed, stacking to three times. It is different from our other dots; you cannot allow it to fall off or you will need to build it back to three stacks.

    I have a video demonstration of the new 61 Inquisitor rotation here.

    Non-cooldown Priorities

    1. Dark Water refresh
    2. Scourge
    3. Vex
    4. Bolt of Depravity (5 stacks Life & Death Concord)
    5. Sanction Heretic
    6. Bolt of Retribution (Echoing Concord buff active)
    7. Bolt of Judgment

    Opener + Cooldown Block

    My common opener is S>V>DW>SH>DW>BoJ>DW>BoJ>BoJ>BoJ

    At this point you will have 5 stacks Life & Death Concord, allowing you to use a BoD. If Flaring Power is active early or will be delayed for a while, continue into this cooldown block: {Fanaticism}BoD>NR>BoR>S>V>BoD>DW>{Radical Coalescence}{Fanaticism}BoD>NR>SH>BoD>BoR>BoR>BoR> DW>BoR>BoR>S>V>BoD.

    The cooldown block will change due to movement, target switching, purging and other disruptions in a regular rotation. What's important is A) making sure DW + other dots don't fall off mid-channel of Nysyr's Rebuke, B) using up your Echoing Concord stacks on Bolt of Retribution but still using BoD as priority, and C) Fanaticism only ever used on a BoD directly prior to a Nysyr's Rebuke. Force-critting a BoD procs Zealotry, allowing your next ability to gain 30% crit chance bonus. This is why Fanaticism is not used directly on Nysyr's Rebuke.

    Other skill explanations

    Soul Drain: This is a very efficient aoe skill. It does not subtract much from your ST dps provided there are multiple targets.

    Judicial Privilege: This is a very nice runspeed increase which also heals you when you are hit. At your discretion you can reserve it for particular mechanics where runspeed is helpful, or you may reserve it for when multiple healers are dead and the goal is to survive as long as possible.

    Harsh Discipline: Damaging channel which also self-heals. If Judicial Privilege is down and your healers are dead, use this to survive a tiny bit longer.

    Confound: ranged Interrupt, but not as easy as a melee interrupt since a lot of the time you will be in the middle of a BoR cast.

    Bound Fate: spammable, instant aoe ability. This is a drastic ST loss and I don't recommend using on actual encounters very much.

    Tyranny of Death: better aoe damage than Bound Fate, but delayed.

    Marrow Harvest: located in your SH/BoR macro, this will fire off when facing away from the target.

    Curse of Discord: in an edge case where your BoD + Nysyr's are ready but Scourge/vex will fall off after 1 GCD, you should use Curse of Discord instead of another BoJ.

    Miscellaneous

    Make sure you are treating your dots appropriately. Allow Scourge and Vex to completely drop from your target, but make sure Dark Water is maintained at 3x stacks. The ability has a slight travel time, so being in melee means you can technically refresh at 0s, but being 30m away and you must refresh at 1-2s. When Scourge, Vex and Dark Water have similar timers you should opt to refresh DW a bit early. This way you don't end up needing to Scourge>DW>Vex as the timer on DW creeps dangerously close to your other timers.

    Make sure you have BoR on its own key for when SH has already been applied to the target and you've used Radical Coalescence. It's more dps to dump some BoRs than re-apply SH.

    If your current encounter is melee-friendly, consider standing in melee. Shroud of Agony + auto attack is some nice passive dps. However, if it's "too" melee friendly, you should consider learning/running 61 Shaman. The dps gain is noticeable.

    In terms of itemization, you should prioritize CP gear over SP gear of the same tier. Crit-rate in this build can be 50%+.

    When using crit pots, save it for direcrtly after your cooldown BoD. It's a force-crit and therefore gains no bonus from a crit potion.

    This build is sufficient for most solo needs. Scourge up your targets, Soul Drain, pop Judicial Privilege when you need healing or runspeed.

    is nysyr's used in the regular rotation? it's been a while but i think it was used when all dots are ticking and you were at 1 stack of concord, to build to 5 and then insta BoD. or is that a loss now?

    also in the main spam macro, i assume everything below BoR is for movement.. but how will bolt of judgment ever go off if bor is the main castable spam? mine has a 1.5 sec cast time... but not 60 yet.

    Nysyr's is used after a Fanaticism+Bod, to gain 30% crit zealotry bonus.

    spiritual scrutiny reduces BoJ to instant cast

    I am similarly having the same result with the macros. You just continuously cast a single spell rather than it going through the rotation. If it does this why even have it macro'd at all?

    Those spells are for periods of movement. They are not optimal to use if standing still.

    Oh!!! Okay. So, if I am moving the micro will cast the other spells? I see! That makes a lot more sense now. Thank you for explaining that. I will be trying the spec out in game later this evening.
