    Inquisitor or Templar
    This evaluates to "True".

    Actually it says nothing. I know enough Templars that would never play an Inq and I would never play an Temp.

    thats not, what i was saying

    'OR' means one or the other is true, or both, so regardless if he picks templar of inquisitor, the expression "inq OR templar" will be "true"

    But if he does not choose Inq or Temp the answer will be false. ;(

    I also did not mean your post but the OP. :16:

    I played a temp till level 74 and was a good class. i betrayed to inq and i really enjoy that too. Different play styles but i prefer the inq. Both are good and play different rolls.

    Inquisitors can have better personal DPS due to not requiring their mythical to be equipped at all times for maximum effect, allowing a Two Hand to be used. (Yes, I have seen the few wtfpwnmobiledps Templars that are running around, its possible but not very likely you're one of them at all.)

    Between the two, a raid will almost always pick multiple Templars rather than multiple Inquisitors, but they will almost to a one want at the least one Inquisitor for their MDPS/OT group and for a few of the gimmick spells Inquisitors have. Good clerics have always been a pain in the ass to find for a guild, almost as bad as bards/chanters. Templar has always been able to carry mediocre players, but the ability of the class's tools have gotten better at doing so lately; Inquisitor just recently has acquired raw tools able to carry mediocre players. Which makes either of them a bit easier to come by to fill a raid slot.
    EDIT: Yes, I was too lazy to type it out again after I remember there was just a thread that had something like this.
    "War is an ugly thing, but not the ugliest of things. The decayed and degraded state of moral and patriotic feeling which thinks that nothing is worth war is much worse. The person who has nothing for which he is willing to fight, nothing which is more important than his own personal safety, is a miserable creature and has no chance of being free unless made and kept so by the exertions of better men than himself."

    Hopefully this is helpful in making your decision.

    I started as inquisitor and was getting pretty well geared - had 3 of my T4, my myth, some good mods.

    However, my guild asked me to betray to templar to fill the OT healer role, so I did.

    Having now played both classes at 80 with decent gear (still need the myth for templar though) here are my biggest comparisons


    Inquisitors can do some very nice things with DPS - both their own, and their groups. Fanatical fanaticism is freakin' amazing ...
    With the inquisitor mythical, you can heal/cure like a madman... seriously. With .74 casting on your "cure-all" it makes for very happy groups. Another huge benefit of inquisitors is the group heal. First off, it's on roughly 1/2 the templars group heal recast time (inq = about 4, templar = about 8). Secondly, regarding the group heal, the inquisitor group heal will regularly hit for MORE HP than the templars will... mainly because of the crit bonus to it you get in AAs, but also in part to the aftershock myth effect. I've seen my group heal + EMGs + aftershock heal upwards of 8k groupwide often enough.

    Templar gets MASSIVE HP buffing - buffing the group for over 3k HP. They also get stoneskin (17% chance to proc on melee with 2pc T4/Master) Templars debuffs are nice, providing some needed group heals, albeit small. Templar also gets Glory, which procs roughly 1k group heals on melee attacks as well. Another HUGE thing that I love about templar is repent. Repent isn't just a simple ward, mind you. From my limited testing here is how it works:

    Say you have a 5k repent
    The tank then takes a hit that would deal 2k damage. This 2k damage is prevented by repent and is deducted from the ward amount.
    here is where it gets awesome - the amount that is deducted from the ward is then converted to a direct heal with crit modifiers. My testing was showing around a multiplier of 1.6 (though this may be affect by heal mod??? anyone know?)
    This works out not to only a 2k ward, + 2k heal, but a 3200 point heal.

    Another large difference between the two are casting times. Inquisitor gets 30% casting AND reuse speed from their heal stance + mythical... this is amazing allowing you to easily reach the casting speed cap and give a hella lot of reuse to your heals.

    Which would I pick, having played both? To be quite honest, I'm tempted to roll and level, and yes, even gear out another inquisitor so I can have the best of both worlds. They are both amazing healers and fun to play.

    Good luck with deciding
    Anedae De'Lunaire - 80 mythical Brigand
    Agion Silverwing - 80 mythical Shadowknight - Ex-Mythical Paladin
    Anai De'Morte - 80 Mythical Inquisitor - Ex-Mythical Templar
    Taiteki Rouzeki - 80 Mythical Berserker
    Amausu - 80 Mythical Wizard
