This guide focuses on damage & self healing while leveling as a Inquisitor. Which will be harder than Shaman. Which is good for Soloing, Instant Adventures, Dungeons and Warfronts.
Though warning mistakes could be present.


As a Inquisitor the best combo at Level 1 is 0 Inquisitor, 0 Druid, 0 Purifier (http://"https://rift.magelo.com/en/soultree#D/n/m")

So at the start you have:
- Fervent Strike (http://"https://rift.magelo.com/en/ability/790169584") is a melee ability that will use until we get Trickster's Bolt (http://"https://rift.magelo.com/en/ability/-82411169").
- Bolt of Judgment (http://"https://rift.magelo.com/en/ability/1200242563") & Flame Lance (http://"https://rift.magelo.com/en/ability/101635405") deal the same damage, however we won't be using either as they have a cast time of 2s. Later when Bolt of Judgment's (http://"https://rift.magelo.com/en/ability/1200242563") cast time is reduced it will be used over Trickster's Bolt (http://"https://rift.magelo.com/en/ability/-82411169").
- Vex (http://"https://rift.magelo.com/en/ability/1752828629") is a damage over time ability (DoT) that we wonít be using as it doesnít take 15s to kill the enemy, unless in a Warfront or Dungeon.
- Satyr Protector (http://"https://rift.magelo.com/en/ability/-74881356") a Pet that we wonít be using as it canít tank or deal much damage, itís only good for clicking objects or Artifacts to distract the enemy if close by.
- Faerie Healer (http://"https://rift.magelo.com/en/ability/1195563691") also a Pet that we will want active all the time, as it heals you up when you take damage which is great; until later levels when itís healing canít keep up with the damage you take.
- Symbol of the Torch (http://"https://rift.magelo.com/en/ability/1049173517") is a shield ability that we will cast on ourselves as much as possible.

Buff:
Faerie Healer (http://"https://rift.magelo.com/en/ability/1195563691")

Rotation:
Spam Fervent Strike



New Soul Points:
Level 9
Abilities:
- Shield of Oak (http://"https://rift.magelo.com/en/ability/369850818") applies a shield to the Cleric absorbing some of the damage taken, we will have a it active all the time. Itís also off the Global Cooldown so it wonít affect your damage at all.
- Combined Effort (http://"https://rift.magelo.com/en/ability/1673825006") does more damage than your other abilities and increases the damage the enemy takes, so we will be using it as it comes off cooldown when the enemy is in melee.
- Trickster's Bolt (http://"https://rift.magelo.com/en/ability/-82411169") to be used over Bolt of Judgment (http://"https://rift.magelo.com/en/ability/1200242563") due to is 2s cast time.
- Sign of Wrath (http://"https://rift.magelo.com/en/ability/-47602695") a Buff that causes damage to enemy if they attack after you cast a healing or shield ability on yourself.
- Healing Flare (http://"https://rift.magelo.com/en/ability/274748675") to heal yourself when you take too much damage or after killing an enemy to quickly kill another, to avoid dying yourself.
- Armor of Devotion (http://"https://rift.magelo.com/en/ability/28618866") will be active all the time.

So now onto macros:
I find macros are really helpful no matter the level and reduce the space needed on your bars, so instead of pressing 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 and 6 you press 1, 2 and 3.

So hereís your first macro:
#show Trickster's Bolt
suppressmacrofailures
cast Shield of Oak
cast Combined Effort
cast Trickster's Bolt
cast Break Free

Now Iíve added Break Free in there, itís not part of your souls though it is a ability you get at level 1 from the Ascended Powers tab like your out-of-combat resurrection ability.

Most donít macro as they think you should save it for specific abilities and say you're a bad player for doing so donít listen, the only time where it can triggered so many times in a few seconds is in Warfronts and even then are you that quick to use it? and when should you as there are so many abilities that can get you?

Placement of the ability at the back of the macro with help avoid using Break Free on snares and roots for a second and will trigger right away if you get stunned or disabled. So long as you're pressing the macro.

Having Shield of Oak (http://"https://rift.magelo.com/en/ability/369850818") at the top will make it always trigger first as it has No Global Cooldown before you deal any damage.

Buffs:
Faerie Healer (http://"https://rift.magelo.com/en/ability/1195563691")
Armor of Devotion (http://"https://rift.magelo.com/en/ability/28618866")
Sign of Wrath (http://"https://rift.magelo.com/en/ability/-47602695")

Rotation:
Shield of Oak > Trickster's Bolt



New Soul Points:
Level 17
Abilities:
- Bolt of Depravity (http://"https://rift.magelo.com/en/ability/1244719305") is useless as it has a cast time of 3s which is too long, until 2/3 in Life and Death Concord.
- Sanction Heretic (http://"https://rift.magelo.com/en/ability/618841676") deals both damage and additional damage over time so we will be using it.
- Purge (http://"https://rift.magelo.com/en/ability/2053902436") to Purge an enemy, best used in Warfronts for enemy healing over time abilities or important buffs. Also in Dungeons and Raids for bosses that need to be purge or you could wipe.

- Righteous Deliberation (http://"https://rift.magelo.com/en/ability/-87497130") lets you restore mana if you use too much channeling it back to over a duration, with 3/3 Mental Resilience using this or other single target channel abilities will increase your overall damage.
- Spiritual Deficiency (http://"https://rift.magelo.com/en/ability/1595568812") a debuff that increases Non-Physical damage taken, making your abilities deal more damage on that enemy. Best to use it in Dungeons on the bosses at the start.
- Spiritual Protection (http://"https://rift.magelo.com/en/ability/1855908458") a small buff to your Resistances that will increase as you level.
- Circle of Oblivion (http://"https://rift.magelo.com/en/ability/475452316") for when Soul Drain (http://"https://rift.magelo.com/en/ability/76") is on cooldown, to use on the clustered enemies.
- Trepidation (http://"https://rift.magelo.com/en/ability/1735321389") if you need to click an object or Artifact, or a enemy is too close to you in melee range; though constant damage will break the effect it has on the enemy.
