    Default 4.5 Inquisitor

    Hello there.

    4.5 Inquisitor-huntercleric.jpg
    Difficulty: 7/10
    Min max potential: 7/10
    Classification: S-tier, high burst raid dps

    -> Inquisitor has a couple mechanics going with it. Expect to invest some time to get into it and set it up. This is not some onebutton spammer. For that you get one of the most potent packages to play with.

    I will try to keep it simple and mark basic information with [B]
    and optional/advanced information with [A]




    Legendaries: Radical Coalescence | Sanction Heretic | Bolt of Retribution | Fervent Strike | Inscribe Fate
    Buffs: Spiritual Scrunity | Armor of Awakening | (Shroud of Agony)

    [B]Basics & Abbreviations

    FS: Fervent Strike - buffs you for 60 seconds
    Fate: Inscribe Fate - debuffs the target for more damage taken
    PS: Punishing Strike - Allows you to debuff targets (Combined Effort) for more damage taken
    SH: Sanction Heretic - Strong dot (Sanction 10 ticks) with cooldown and uptime being 15 seconds
    SoP: Seal of Pain - medium dot over 15 seconds that makes Sanction add 6 very high bonus ticks
    Scourge - Strong damage over time for 15 seconds
    BoR: Bolt of Retribution - strong cast that also fires a BoJ
    BoJ: Bolt of Judgement - The weaker but instant brother of BoR
    BoD: Bolt of Depravity - Low priority attack that helps reducing cast times of BoR
    AI: Aggressive Inquisition - 2 second Channel that fires 3/6 BoD's
    NR: Nysy'rs Rebuke - 3 second channel that gets a huge bonus from Coal
    Fana: Fanaticism - Multifunctional critbuff
    Coal: Radical Coalescence - Resets damge cooldowns. Gives Fanaticism, 1 instant BoD, double tickrate for channels and bonus damage for NR

    [B]Inquisitor Mechanics - 2min

    [B]Buffs @self vs debuffs @target - 2min

    Spoiler!


    [B]How to kill something

    Pre fight: Righteous Deliberation for 1 second to get Mental Resilience.

    Those opener are pretty much the same. Try to use melee FS if possible.

    Melee FS for ~5% crit - slightly more damage on long fights.
    4.5 Inquisitor-fsmelee.jpg
    PS - FS - SH - Scourge - Sop - Fanaticism, Fate - AI - Coal, BoD - NR - AI - EoL - BoD -
    SH - SoP - Scourge - BoR x3 - Fate - BoD - BoRx3 - BoD
    Ranged FS for more flexibility - allows FS to be used from 20meter
    4.5 Inquisitor-fsranged.jpg
    FS - SH - Scourge - Sop - PS - Fanaticism+ Fate - AI - Coal+ BoD - NR - AI - EoL -
    SH - Sop - Scourge - BoD - BoR x3 - Fate - BoD - BoRx3 - BoD

    Default opener with macro names:

    Fervent Strike > #SH x2 > Scourge > PS > #15% > Fanaticism > #AI > #Coal for BoD > #NR for both channels > Eruption of Life > #SH x2 > Scourge > Bolt of Depravity > #BoRx3 > #15% > BoD > #BoR x3 > BoD

    The opener is designed to fit everything relevant into your 15 second Omnox uptime
    1) Use SH asap and have the important last 6 seconds explode asap withing Omnox
    2) Give Coal Channels maximum buffs while still using them within the Omnox uptime.
    -> Omnox has a ca. 85% proccchance- this means it can also procc on your second- or even third attack. This is just beneficial to you.

    Continuing Rotation and priority:

    See your rotation in blocks of 15 seconds. Sanction Heretic sets the pace.
    Then just ask down your priority list:

    1) Is Fervent Strike active?
    - Always have Fervent Strike up first.
    2) Is Sanction Heretic active? Is Inscribe Fate on the Target?
    - Refresh Sanction Heretic (+ Seal of Pain and Scourge) and Inscribe Fate AFTER the dots.
    - Eventually figure out first if a target will live long enough.
    3) Is Radical Coalsecence available soon?
    - Idealy you want to use your Coalescence + Channel while the dots are running.*
    4) Do i have stacks of Echoing concord for Bolt of Retribution?
    - if not, you should have a instant Bolt of Depravity available. Bolt of Depravity will pop up on your screen when it's available to be cast as instantly.

    * After every minute, you want to use Radical Coalescence as one compact package like in the opener:


    (> Inscribe Fate > Sanction Heretic > Seal of Pain > Scourge)
    > Fanaticism > Aggressive Inquisition (Or BoR if unavailable) > Radical Coalescence > Bolt of Depravity > Nysyr's Rebuke > Aggressive Inquisition >
    And now we are back to the priority list from above.


    The Rotation written above is more up to date than the video

    Default PVP inquisitor

    4.5 Inquisitor-inq.gif

    PVP Inquisitor is a high ST damage class that relies on its CDs, DoTs, and Bolts to effectively do high damage, all the while being almost untouchable, however their damage can be counteracted. As of late 2019 the changes that were bought to the DEVs by the cleric community were implemented. This greatly increased inquisitor TTK and made it more competitive than ever before.

    Main Build

    61Inq/11RS/4Sent

    Mastery
    61 - Vicar's Resilience or Soul Collector
    62 - Benevolent Presence
    63 - Faith's Freedom
    64 - Sinister Resolve or Faith's Reward
    65 - Soul Stream

    Questions

    #show Bolt of Retribution
    suppressmacrofailures
    cast Bolt of Retribution
    cast Bolt of Depravity
    cast Bolt of Judgment
    cast Spiritual Scrunity <-----Why?
    cast Break Free <-------Why?
    cast Fading Light <----- Why?

    I am really not understanding why those spells are in a "main spam" Macro.

    #show Sanction Heretic
    suppressmacrofailures
    cast Sanction Heretic
    cast Seal of Pain
    cast @self Perseverance <--- Why? Is this supposed to be a Legendary?

    I am no macro builder of any sort, but those dont feel like they belong. The macros do not work with those spells in them

    Also this rotation you have there:

    Fervent Strike > #SH x2 > Scourge > PS > #15% >>>> Fanaticism<<< > >>>#AI<<<< > #Coal for BoD > #NR for both channels > Eruption of Life > #SH x2 > Scourge > Bolt of Depravity > #BoRx3 > #15% > BoD > #BoR x3 > BoD

    Fanaticism can not be cast twice in a row. Yet you have it (in bold) there and in that macro right after it as well.. How?

    If you use this macro and Spiritual scrunity is not active, you will not cast anything, may aswell use the gcd to rebuff it.
    In pve, you will find far less hard cc than the break free cd has cooldown. Again, if hard cc'ed, that button would not do anything, may aswell auto free yourself.

    Perserverance protects you from interrupt effects but being moved around. so any random mob popping a silence onto you gets ignored. Again in pve this happens alot less than the cd of perserverance allows to ignore, while just activating it will have the protection for the next cc up 24/7.

    You press it manually inbetween gcd's and the AI macro only fires AI, that simple.

    Slapping 1-5 ogcd buffs infront of a spell in a macro is convenient- however macros have an igcd of ca. 0.1 seconds. Using ogcd's manually is prefered and triggers no microdelay. Ontop, better get used to not use ogcd's and channels together in one button, servers are too laggy (don't think the situation got better in the meantime ^^)

    Try it: Slap any ogcd you can find ontop of an instant spell. Stack 10 if you like. Now target a dummy, press the macro and see how long it takes for that instant spell to fire.
    Add ping spikes of 200ms and those ogcd's can buffer forever.

    https://youtu.be/KiRviJtQYhI?t=6
    Here is a timestamp. Feeling the lag comming, using fana manually and have AI sperg out completely. Fana-ai macro would have delayed everything by up to half a second.

    Least that was the average server performance when i played.
