The Inquisitor Ascendancy is a subclass that puts a lot of the focus of its builds on elemental damage. They can specialise in elemental penetration and critical damage, to make them a dangerous threat, or buff their own survivability to give them more longevity in combat. They are a versatile-enough class that can utilize both attacks or spells, when using Instruments of Virtue. When combined with the right teammates and debuffs, this subclass can really pack a punch. 

The Hierophant Ascendancy

This Ascendancy subclass is an interesting one. The Hierophant Ascendancy mixes non-conventional sources of damage with a good degree of utility with totems and brands. They have a large mana pool which they can essentially convert into either offensive or defensive bonuses. To top it all off, they can also use Arcane Surge to greatly improve a spell-caster’s abilities. 

The Guardian Ascendancy

This Ascendancy is unique in its position to cater to either supporting tanks or a minion-based build. They have a number of passive skills which can be used to enhance and protect their allies. Their main specialism, though, is in Auras. These are persistent AoE skills which can be used to buff allies or debuff opponents, depending on the Aura. Using these, alongside other skills like Onslaught, The Guardian Ascendancy is a well-balanced support that proves invaluable to any team.
