    Default Quick Inquisitor Guide

    As for now Ahov isn't going to update his guide I though I would make my own.
    This guide will show you the new rotations with Inquisitor, and any changes that happened in 3.0.
    Though warning mistakes could be present.



    Best Spec:
    61 Inquisitor, 10 Shaman, 5 Defiler

    Alternative Spec:
    61 Inquisitor, 10 Shaman, 5 Oracle - Non Defiler Soul
    61 Inquisitor, 10 Shaman, 5 Sentinel - Non Oracle Soul


    Masteries:
    Level 61 - Avenging Shield
    Level 62 - Benevolent Presence
    Level 63 - Faith's Freedom
    Level 64 - Diversify
    Level 65 - Soul Stream

    Buffs:
    Spiritual Scrutiny
    Armor of Awakening
    Rage Blight
    Spiritual Protection

    Tank Buff:
    Blighted Greed


    Starting Rotation:
    Without Raid Cooldowns
    Sanction Heretic > Scourge > Soul Stream > Bolt of Depravity
    Aggressive Inquisition > Nysyr's Rebuke > Bolt of Depravity > Radical Coalescence

    Bolt of Depravity > Sanction Heretic > Scourge
    Aggressive Inquisition > Nysyr's Rebuke > Bolt of Depravity

    With Raid Cooldowns
    Sanction Heretic > Scourge > Bolt of Judgment x3 > Bolt of Depravity
    Aggressive Inquisition > Nysyr's Rebuke > Bolt of Depravity > Radical Coalescence

    Bolt of Depravity > Sanction Heretic > Scourge
    Aggressive Inquisition > Soul Stream > Bolt of Depravity
    Nysyr's Rebuke > Bolt of Depravity


    Rotation:
    Keep Scourge, Sanction Heretic and Mental Resilience active.

    Always use Bolt of Retribution when you have a stack of Echoing Concord, if not then use Bolt of Judgment.
    Once 4 stacks of Life and Death Concord are gained use Bolt of Depravity.

    Always use Fanaticism with Bolt of Depravity.
    You can delay using Bolt of Depravity if Fanaticism is about to come off cooldown.

    You can use Righteous Deliberation to proc Mental Resilience before combat.
    If Aggressive Inquisition, Nysyr's Rebuke & Soul Stream are on cooldown, and Mental Resilience is about to expire use Harsh Discipline for two ticks of damage.

    Keep Aggressive Inquisition, Nysyr's Rebuke, Radical Coalescence & Soul Stream on cooldown.
    You can delay using the channels if your DoTs are about to expire.
    Time with raid cooldowns if possible.

    For Soul Stream have only one stack of Life and Death Concord before use.

    As for AoE keep Soul Drain on cooldown and spam Circle of Oblivion.


    Abilities you need to know about:

    Great guide Burnin. Very helpful.

    Does it really matter if you cast Nysyr's before AI or no? I'm not sure if the order of the channels is that important or if it throws the cd's off. Does AI hit harder than Nysyr's? Also do you macro AI and Nysyr's or is it better to have them separate?

    It shouldn't matter which order you use them in.
    Does AI hit harder than Nysyr's?
    Aggressive Inquisition does more damage than Nysyr's Rebuke.
    Also do you macro AI and Nysyr's or is it better to have them separate?
    I don't macro channels together, I find it easier to watch both there cooldowns and I don't want to double press causing one to interrupt the other due the lag.

    A few things about the guide:

    Nysyr's outdamages AI now on live since BoD got changed to 130% and AI is only 3 BoD. So you should do Fanat > BoD > Nysyr's > AI

    That opening rotation is not optimal because you go 5 seconds without your dots being up. Better way would be:
    Scourge > Sanction Heretic > Bolt of Judgment x3 > Bolt of Depravity > BoR x2 (or 1 depending on lag) > rest of CD block

    You should probably include Fanat in your CD block for clarity's sake.

    "Mental Resilience is about to expire use Harsh Discipline for one tick of damage."
    You should be using HD for 2 ticks of damage, not 1 tick. Clipping it with ability queue will most likely give one tick only, so I just clip it with a cast when it hits 1.1s in channel.

    "Keep Aggressive Inquisition, Nysyr's Rebuke, Radical Coalescence & Soul Stream on cooldown."
    You should only be using Fanat on cooldown to push out 4 per 2 minutes. Then you should be using Nysyr's and AI whenever Nysyr's, AI, and Fanat are up. This still lines up RC to be every ~2minutes.

    "It shouldn't matter which order you use them in."
    It does matter. Because you want 3 stacks of zealotry on the one that's more hard hitting (Nysyr's) and 2 stacks on the one that is slightly weaker (AI)

    Oh. Also, I do SH before Scourge to avoid clipping dots.

    Oh, and also also use your mana channel prepull. Puts on Mental.

    Hi there, first post, awesome guide man thanks alot for this, been leveling my cleric as Inquisitor, it's my first toon, tons of fun so far.

    Few questions if I may:

    1- Why not use the Scourge individually out of those macros you posted just seems a bit too much, might just be me I don't know but I like to apply it out of macro that way I'm sure I'm not clipping it.

    2- I usually use AI first since it procs better crits and followed by Nysyr's ends up being more auto crit for sure afterwards, maybe thats just me again.

    The Scourge in the macros is only for when you are facing away. It will not be cast by the macro in normal usage.

    Personally I put Marrow Harvest just above Scourge.

    Default AI > Nysyr

    Cast AI before Nysyr

    You don't care about DPS, you only care about damage. Both will consume one stack of zealotry so you want the one that does more damage to consume the 30%.

    Aggressive Inquisition doesn't consume Zealotry stacks, it will however consume Fanaticism.
    So it doesn't matter which order you use Aggressive Inquisition & Nysyr's Rebuke.

    It is however important that you use Soul Stream after Radical Coalescence, as it isn't affected by the reset you can save it's 3s cooldown reduction so that it means something.

    That opening rotation is not optimal because you go 5 seconds without your dots being up. Better way would be:
    Scourge > Sanction Heretic > Bolt of Judgment x3 > Bolt of Depravity > BoR x2 (or 1 depending on lag) > rest of CD block
    Instead of talking about DoTs which are up if you read, you should suggest that you add a filler section if the raid cooldowns get delayed because not everyone is going to put those up CDs at 8s.

    "Keep Aggressive Inquisition, Nysyr's Rebuke, Radical Coalescence & Soul Stream on cooldown."
    You should only be using Fanat on cooldown to push out 4 per 2 minutes. Then you should be using Nysyr's and AI whenever Nysyr's, AI, and Fanat are up. This still lines up RC to be every ~2minutes.
    I clearly didn't say you must use on cooldown, I said "keep on cooldown".
    If your saying you must use Fanaticism on cooldown no matter the ability you use, you are wrong.

    Oh, and also also use your mana channel prepull. Puts on Mental.
    If you read the extra bit you will note that Mental Resilience is talked about and that Righteous Deliberation does proc it.

    Yes it does dude. All you need to do is hit a dummy before making wrong claims.

    My opener is for 5s RCD. In your opener, you have 5 seconds without any dots up and that's a big hit to DPS.

    If your saying you must use Fanaticism on cooldown no matter the ability you use, you are wrong.
    Why am I wrong? If you don't use it on CD, there are 2 possible things that will happen:
    1. You fit <4 Fanat in 2 minutes. DPS loss
    2. You delay your CD block. DPS loss.

    It doesn't always consume a stack of Zealotry when it critically hits the target.

    Ok, so after some more testing, it appears that AI's consumption of zealotry is done on a different roll than the first BoD. Whereas Nysyr's consumption roll is based on whether the first tick crit. After some math, Nys -> AI is a ever so slight gain over AI -> Nys.
