Spark Templar Inquisitor is one of the best PoE currency farming builds out there. It has a very high clear speed, and with increased Item Rarity and Item Quantity bonuses allow you to farm over 20 Chaos Orbs per hour just from the Chaos Orb recipe.

1. Gameplay

Spark is a lightning spell that spawns numerous projectiles, that move randomly covering the entire screen. With the use of Pierce Support and Spell Echo Support Gems, Spark will clear the whole screen within seconds. Also, daggers with high base Attack Speed provide extreme mobility with Whirling Blades skill. This build also uses Chaos Inoculation Passive, as in our opinion it is much easier to balance between defenses and Magic Find stats.

0:24 Tier 8 Rare Shore Map
0:42 Tier 6 Rare Academy Map

This video was recorded on a level 83 Inquisitor with full Magic Find gear. Keep in mind that this build is not suitable for Map Tier 10 and above

Odealo is a player-driven marketplace for PoE Currency, Orbs, and Unique items.

2. Build's PROS & CONS

  • high AoE damage with one of the fastest clear speed in Path of Exile
  • budget-friendly
  • high Item Rarity and Item Quantity bonuses
  • decent defenses with approximately 6,000 Energy Shield while on a moderate budget
  • one of the best currency farming builds
  • low single target DPS, making it nearly impossible to clear high-tier maps or kill end-game bosses
  • vulnerable to elemental reflect map mod

3. Leveling tips
