I’ve been playing Grim Dawn for (too) many hours on DAIL and Grimquest mods. Since AoM, I came back to the « real » game and fell in love with the Inquisitor mastery. Mage Hunter was my first toon past expansion and I never really found a build that suits me. I tried many variations though : WPS Dual Pistols, Elemental AAR, Panetti, Trozan/Storm etc. And then the Farath’s Cubedropped and I gave it a try. And I loved it.
Defensive Set-up without the Mageslayer Set:
Offensive Set-up with the Mageslayer Set:
Roaming around the worldmap and in dungeons, Word of Pain + Storm of Elgoloth get rid of trash mobs. Flames of Ignaffar finishes the remaining foes off.
In boss fights, put an Inquisitor Seal under you and the boss, apply your DoT’s and cast Flames of Ignaffar. You can face-tank Valdaran and Fabius without any sweat for instance.
For defensive purposes, you have no passive circuit breaker but many active tools at your disposal : World of Renewal, Horn of Gandarr, Mirror of Ereoctes, Nullification.
Kitting is not this build’s strong suit because (1) no gap closer, (2) relatively short range of Flames of Ignaffar. With a little correct positioning, you can easily take down Kuppa and the Mad Queen.
Energy issues : none.
Full Green and Purple to get all the powerful elemental constellations from the bottom.
Wayward Soul (Chariot of the Dead) for some sustain.
Elemental Storm (Rhowan’s Crown) linked to Word of Pain.
Elemental Seeker (Blind Sage) linked to Flames of Ignaffar.
Arcane Currents (Attak Seru) linked to Storm of Elgoloth.
All RR constellations possible. Harp and Ultos for some good OA damage.
Inquisitor has really easy leveling with Word of Pain/ Storm of Elgoloth for damage and Word of Renewal/Inquisitor Seal for sustain. Rune of Hagarrad is a boss killer.
The Devotion path is straightforward, no twist. Rush Elemental Storm and Wayward Soul. Then fill the constellations from North to South.
When reaching Ultimate and level 94, you can switch to Flames of Ignaffar.
