Purifier (Inquisitor+Demolitionist) is one of the classes that exists, since AoM expanison. Both classes supports ranged playstyle and deal elemental damage.
Demo have the auto attack replacer-Fire Strike, while Inquisitor posses Weapon pool skills.Both classes have attack speed. Defensively Inquisitor should be the important class, since Demo doesn’t have much to offer. Inquisitor contrary is support class, with skills like Censure, Renewal and Seal.

Ranged Playstyle ?
Ranged playstyle is not very popular at the moment and one can argue is weakest. As whole idea is to shoot enemies in distance and kill them before they come. In reality, especially late game with high density, you’re basically melee shooter, you shotgun them in close range. Also ranged weapons roll lower damage. Unlike melee, where DW is better, here DW pistols is not, compared to 2h Guns.
Lightning Fire Strike is more versatile than fire version, pistols are easily crafted and Lightning devotion route offers more stats and RR.
Fire Strike Our main damage dealer.It is auto attack replacer,it scales with attack speed and triggers WPS(weapon pool skills) Should invest as many points as possible, other modifiers are according to personal taste. Static Strike deals tons of damage, but is random proc.
Flashbang It’s used utility skill. First nod is very good for the DA shred, but don’t have points to use it more generous
Storm Box Used as devotion procer mainly
Termite Mines Elemental RR, super irritating, but will be changed probably in next patch
Inquisitor Seal Our defensive main skill.Damage absorb is nice,also have offensive element
Words of Renewal Our healing skill,defensive ability is also important,since the build doesn’t have many sources for it
Put FS on right mouse key and move to left. Cast seal beneath you and shoot enemies. Use Box+Flashbang for debuff and mines for RR. Don’t leave seal, unless is super necessary. Heal with Renewal.

Decide to play against Vala, super nasty boss. She have high lightning resistance and can absorb damage.
Majority is faction gear:
- Rings- Coven
- Shoulders- Bysmiel
- Chest -Bysmiel
- Relic-Malmouth resistance
- Medal- recipe from Bysmiel reputation
Crafted gear are the yellow items:
- weapons,look for attack speed suffix, Alacrity is cheapest
- amulet,just excellent,+1 all skills and attack speed
- Helmet, guaranteed drop,also +1 all skills
- Gloves,random blue,craft random greens with attack speed, if you don’t have better
- Feet,random blue.If you don’t have them,look foe physical resistance
- Pants,Solael green, there base resistances and Life steal is the key
Stats to aim for:
- at least 2.7k OA
- at least 2.8k DA
- at least 10k Health
- all resistances (Pierce,not needed) capped, overcaps are welcomed
- 2k armor
- more than 10 % physical resistance
- 170 % attack speed minimum
- More damage will improve clear speed
Attributes : cunning to equip pistols, everything else in Physique
I wanted to test devotion map with some weird route using Tempest.
Also Ultos as T3 constellation. Used Revenant for utility.Mandatory constellations are:
- Sailor’s guide
- One source of flat RR
Devotion route :
- Sailor’s guide
- Revenant,remove red
- Tempest,remove green
- Ultos to the proc
- 1st node in Dying God
You can go full Dying God,if you want. For leveling you need damage proc early on, like Tsunami or Elemental Storm. Also super good is Bat.
Since AoM not many things have changed,so stick to guide by x1x1x1x2. Fire strike allows you to use the same skill efficiently both for leveling and end game.
Just remember to keep resistances high and DA number, that are not crittable by bosses.
You can select fire version, but many enemies are crazy resistant to it and Bastion of Chaos is excellent place for speed leveling.
End Game Build
Or you can choose from compendium. Not a lot of DW Purifiers are posted in FG, so most are sadly outdated
