    Im gonna have to agree with this guy, put jolt first, its pretty much your best attack.

    Put it this way, if everything is up including jolt, why would you not cast it first? The faster you cast it the faster it can come back up.

    Tomorrow agreed with me once, I think the world is falling

    Art - Jolt is, by and far, the best button press you can make. It's a beginner's macro mistake to not have it as the top ability. Because it has an internal cooldown it is always up. Firing a half second late because you cast something else could, over time, cause a huge DPS loss. A lot of times when I DPS on my cleric in dungeons it's up while I am back far because of Saction Heretic or vex proccing it, when you go in, you ensure it's first instead of hitting another ability first. Even though it's off the GC there is a small delay when you press the button between it and something else.

    Looking over the macro again I would probably take BoJ out. It's a two second sit still cast. You shouldn't be wasting time on it unless you really mean too. It's not a huge thing but worth considering. Pressing three buttons instead of two isn't that huge a deal

    It's not a terrible solo spec. I prefer to solo without the shaman portion adding more to Inq and Justicar as, in my opinion, you get more out of it solo having the extra defense, the mana return for "oops" pulls and a bit easier time soloing elites. Then again I am a kiter at heart so melee is not really my prefered spec for solo.

    Hey i will agree with you when you're right

    And his BoJ is prolly a 1.5 second cast if he is using the spec correctly. Still thought i wouldnt macro anything if i were using inq, the only few things worth casting are the dots and BoJ to get BoD to proc, just rotate that over and over ignoring everything else for single target. Still wont be as good as druid/shaman though IMO : /

    Unfortunately the BoJ cast time reducer is all but useless now with the way BoD procs work. They made the damage based off cast time, your shorter cast hits for less damage but the same damage per second. Those 5 points are generally spent better in other ways.

    Pretty much any class mixed with Justicar is great at soloing. All you need is 11-12 points in Justicar to get the passive heals off damage, and you get a self heal when you build convictions.

    Druid/Shaman, Inquisitor/Cab mixed with Justicar both work well.

    Considering you really need 11 points in Justicar to heal decently and get Strike of Judgment (spammable), Bolt of Radiance, and Censure from Justicar (11) you will always have some way to build convictions.

    Is that the best dps to gain convictions? No, but you will have them if you need them. There are cookie cutter builds, but you really can use almost anything you want soloing.
