[3.8] Consecrated Path Inquisitor

"
So there's a little keystone on the righthand side of the passive tree called Winter Spirit. This and the node before it convert 20% of physical weapon damage to cold damage. PoB is showing this as a 50% increase in DPS, which sounds pretty significant. I imagine because it converts 40% of the remaining physical damage on Consecrated Path to another element (which is then affected by so many other Inquisitor things). What would you say to dropping a Jewel slot in favor of this keystone? It's a 3 point keystone.

Yeah I forgot about that. Our jewel sockets are really efficient so I wouldn't drop those. Drop some life nodes for those. I'll post a tree soon, shouldn't be very different.

Wouldn't be better to drop some life and get acro/phase acro? ould It could be useful for delves and end-game content or you just manage to rip everything to shred anyway?

I was running acro/phase acro, but I switched over to life to avoid one shots. I figured with Inquisitor elemental mitigation and the astral plate, going for mitigation would be better than avoidance. Plus acro/ph acro chunks quite a lot of armour. I'm not exactly sure which is better tbh.

I run this build but have converted out the last 50% non-converted physical out into cold damage:




It provides about a ~300k damage increase fully buffed. Which although it isn't a tonne it does feel good to push the number up.

Overall a really really fun build to play and really interactive after playing Winter Orb/Storm Brand for all of last league.

Maybe you missed it, but I changed the tree a bit to include 'Winter Spirit' on pill8ws' suggestion, converting 40% of the rest of phys to cold. It is a good dps increase. You could do that and craft flat phys on gloves and save the jewel socket for a rare one.

Edit: My bad, I hadn't included the Winter Spirit change in the changelog. Done now.

Ah that is a nice fix, I'll begin moving that way but probably keep the jewel until I get around to getting all the nodes.

Did Shaper and Red Elder deathless so far this league already with this build, feels super nice to play. Thanks for the guide.
Currently following your guide and I think my biggest struggle so far is just mana. I have everything along with lv 4 enlightened but how is my mana pool still so small.

Yeah I agree, I felt the same when I tried out 3 auras. Feels bad to run out of mana and you can't constantly spam right click. It's not a big deal to ditch herald of ash though. It's not a big dps loss.

Try this, Replace the portal gem with Vaal Clarity. Drop HoA for clearing and when you get to a boss, use HoA with Vaal Clarity to ensure you dont lose mana during your flask buff window.
quite enjoying the build, played it a little in incursion league..
