Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)
Is this build Hardcore viable?
Yes. Look under the "Defenses" section if you have doubts.

If I want to forego this Build's defenses and just focus on maximizing my DPS what should I do ?
1. Replace Ahn's Heritage Colossal Tower Shield with a +1 Totem Shaper Shield.
2. Replace Stibnite/QuickSilver Flask with Silver Flask (for Onslaught).
3. Replace Fragility Jewels with better Jewels.

How's the Build as a League Starter?
Leveling is pretty smooth as a Templar/Inquisitor.

Why Inquisitor instead of Hierophant?
Single Target is not an issue when it comes to this build, it's clear speed.
The Inquisitor ascendancy provides both attack and cast speed which allows the
build to be more mobile when compared to Hierophant.

Why aren't you using Physical to Lightning Support for 100% Lightning Damage?
By converting the remaining 35-50% Physical Damage to Cold I can make full use of the new Hatred Aura for more DPS. Frost bomb can now be used for Cold Penetration.

Note : -
1. If you do not have Shroud of the Lightless you have to use Physical to Lightning Support + Lightning Penetration.

2. Once you have Shroud of the Lightless but you do not have Physical to Cold Hatred Watcher's Eye + Physical to Cold Glove Craft, you can instead use Hrimsorrow/Hrimburn Gloves.

3. If you have a 35% (or more) of Physical Damage Converted to Cold Damage while affected by Hatred Watcher's Eye you do not need the Physical to Cold Glove Craft.
