[PoE 3.9] Storm Brand Templar (Inquisitor)

Intro & build description

This build is very beginner-friendly and straightforward as it doesn’t require any complex knowledge or mechanics. You pick up a wand, dagger or sceptre with spell damage and proceed to destroy screens of mobs while keeping your range. Build gets really satisfying to play once you get to relatively consistent critical strike chance, it just melts the mobs and being inquisitor just makes it better, we ignore elemental resistances on our critical strikes. Very strong choice for a new character in fresh economy.

Build Pros

  • VERY fun to play
  • Straightforward gearing
  • Mind over Matter
  • Ranged
  • Great build to start in the fresh league

Build Cons

  • Elemental reflect maps are no-go
