[3.10] Consecrated Path Inquisitor (RETIRED)



I'm retiring this build as of 3.10. I don't see much activity/interest around it and I'm personally not very motivated to update the character.

Please feel free to use the template and ask questions. If you need help, I'll try and answer.


3.10 changes:

-> Cluster notables (Delirium jewels): Probably get any life/attack speed node that seems worth it. I took a brief look and didn't find anything really worth it.

I don't really recommend this build for Delirium. It's not a great starter and it looks like delirium is going to be a clear speed build and this build does not compete. Two handers feel super clunky to use without multistrike. I would retire this build tbh but it was good single target so I'm keeping it around for now.


Note: Please post all your questions in this thread or come by the stream, don't pm me in game. Make sure your profile is PUBLIC before asking for help so your character is visible. If you have issues with the trees and you're loading them into the poe website, don't. Import them into Path of Building. Please check out the FAQ section before asking questions.

I don't claim my guides to be original or super efficient. I write guides to share characters I'm fond of.

Gameplay on youtube, or if I stream.

=======================================================================

Pros:
Decently tanky.
Good single target.

Cons:
Okay clear speed.
Playstyle might be umcomfy for bosses.


Introduction
Spoiler

The build is built around Voidforge:



I just wanted to make something with Voidforge and consecrated path seemed like a good fit.

Since we deal triple elemental damage, we need tri pen. Inquisitor is an obvious choice. Also consecrated path thematically makes sense with templar.



PoB


Final Tree


Bandits

Alira


Ascendancy
Spoiler

Instruments of Virtue > Righteous Providence > Inevitable Judgement > Augury of Penitence

Instruments of Virtue feels good early on to level.

Brine King and Ralakesh.

Weapon:

Look for the highest dps roll.

Good corruptions: Adds physical damage.

Budget option: Any high pdps rare, Kondo's, Doomsower.


Helmet:
Spoiler


You can use any rare helm here tbh, or abyssus.

BIS - Consecrated Path deals 40% increased damage.
You could also get the Blood rage attack speed enchant.

Budget option: Flexible. Any rare is fine.


Chest:
Spoiler


Ignore my current chest.

Craft/Buy a Warlord's Astral plate and fossil craft with Pristine + Serrated, till you get the -15 mana cost roll, a fat life roll and life recovery.

Budget option: Any rare chest, Tabula Rasa, Loreweave.

Bonus: Awakener's a Hunter chest with +x% chance for attacks to crit onto a -15 chest warlord's astral plate and pray for a fat life roll. If it fails, then repeat pristine + serrated on the chest. Ideally you're looking for, Flat life, % life, attacks crit, -15 mana cost, life recovery rate.


Gloves:
Spoiler


Lots of life, resists, accuracy. Attack speed and phys to attacks are a bonus.

Note: You could also use tombfists for more damage, if you can drop some links and can fit in the resistances.

Bonus: % melee dmg from warlord gloves.


Boots:
Spoiler


Lots of life, resists. % ele with attacks is a bonus.

BIS - 16% increased Attack and Cast if you've killed recently.

Bonus: Tailwind from Hunter boots and/or Elusive from Redeemer boots.

Anoint Constitution

Budget option: Anything with life, res, multi, int.


Belt:
Spoiler



Bonus: Elemental damage from shaper belts/%life from hunter belts. (Craft with prismatic + pristine)


Rings:
Spoiler



Assassin's mark on hit is a luxury.
If you need stats/resists, get a rare ring with life, resists, WED, flat phys instead of mark of the elder.

Budget option: Anything with life, res, int.


Flasks:
Spoiler



Note: Use Bottled Faith instead of the silver for bosses.

Gem Links

Swap out increased area for conc for bosses.



Remaining links (put them wherever you get the right colors):

FAQ:

1h and a shield? Or perhaps dual wielding.
Spoiler
You could do that. It'll be more expensive, but it'll be faster and will deal about the same damage if you invest.

Swap out rare gloves for Hrimsorrow or grab the 3 point of Winter spirit.
Swap the two handed cluster near duelist for dual weilding cluster.

Use Atziri's Promise instead of the stibnite.

And then you want two 400 pdps+ foils, which is the expensive part. The higher the better. If you can get two 400+foils with 'Hits can't be evaded mods' then you'll do far better than voidforge.

Shield + sword will do less damage, but it'll be cheaper. Use Lycosidae.

Depending on the patch notes I think I'll be doing a consecrated path Inquisitor. I was looking at the PoB and the health seems really low, I'm more into super tanky builds. I was wondering which dps nodes you think could be lost without too much of a difference?

Thanks for the guide, this skill looks really fun.

6.8k health is low? o.o
But anyway, I can't see many dps nodes to lose for health. You could lose some or all of the nodes near path of the warrior and pick more up near the marauder start or scion life wheel, but it'll give you 7k at best.

What are your thoughts on playing this build with 1h and a shield? Or perhaps dual wielding. Looks fun, but I played a fair bit of 2h melee last league. I'll probably give it a go either way.

C path is an attack, P Flame is a spell. That's a completely different build.

I'm playing this build in Synthesis/as my starter. So far I'm in A6 and it's just insane. I went for the sword nodes at the bottom-left of the tree and bought x2 The Princess until I can swap over to 2H Swords. I'll probably swap to Rigwald's at 44 and then Terminus at 51.

I'll keep posting as the character progresses. I'm going to try and push this build as far as I can since it's the only one I'll be playing in 3.6 most likely.
