    Default Best Inquisitive split?

    I've made a 12/7/1 Ranger/Bard/Barbarian inquisitive and it is really good. I got 32 doubleshot from enhancements (heroic).

    But i am wondering what the highest dps build is?

    I am leaning towards a pure ranger. +20 doubleshot +20 ranged power and a couple of clickies for extra damage. more doubleshot with killer and 5 fve from feats.

    A pure fighter also might be good. +21 doubleshot +40 ranged power and no sniper shot. +14 damage.

    I am reading about a ranger rouge artificer split is also good.

    The highest pure DPS build while using No Holds Barred right now isn't even using dual XBows, but a Rogue 18 using NHB but the 18th Mechanic core for +2 crit mult on GXBs.

    I always go Arti 2. That extra item slot does work. The Halloween runearm especially, with permanent ghost touch so I can change weapons without fearing a sneak attack from a random Reaper, but that's obviously not the top DPS option.

    I think the sneak die from a deep Rogue split is probably hard to overcome on a build with such a high potential ROF as Inqui, especially with all the fort bypass it can get

    That being said, that's a pure DPS build (well and trapping of course) because you'll have no utility, no CC, no healing, no buffing, etc. And you'll need to figure out how to proc sneaks if you're soloing.

    I think the "best" split in terms of combining high DPS with other useful properties is some Ranger/Arti/XX split. That gives you a more diverse portfolio with Doubleshot, sneak, runearms, lots of autogrant feats so you can take things like Dodge/Mobi, some self heals and buffs, etc. XX can be Rogue for Evasion (if you're <9 Rgr) and more sneak, Fighter for more feats and Kensei stuff, Barb for runspeed and temp HP, etc.

    In no particular order. Just a few I've tried.

    16 arti 2 barb 2 ftr
    16 rog 2 barb 2 ftr
    10 ftr 6 rog 2 arti
    10 rog 6 ftr 2 arti
    16 rog 4 arti
    16 ftr 2 arti 2 barb

    Going to be doing some ranger lives next iconic, so will mix it up more then.

    As far as class splits with a repeater/Gxbow build, I've probably done another 30-40 combinations including high levels in pally, sorc, wizard, bard, ect….. But not as many since inquisitive came out.

    My current is a 16Arti/2Ftr/2Barb (bladeforge). It is not the highest/max dps available. It is however been working just as I expected.

    What's the 2 levels of fighter for? Just the extra feats? It wouldn't seem this build is feat starved with all the extra arti feats. Haste Boost?

It is like going to a museum and bragging about how fast you made it through. Or bragging about how fast you finished a good steak.

    If I had to guess, easy access to extra action boosts, but the feats are still welcome, though they'll probably be defensive feats at that point.
    You can net IPS a few levels earlier on some builds if you take those Fighter levels at the proper time, so there's that going for you too.
