So today my party scrambled a bunch of sub characters to get additional clears for RuDN HC before the extra Wednesday reset...
Here is a particularly hilarious clear, hilarious af composition. I was running on my sub Inqui (yes, I have two Inquisitors LOL), this friend was using her own Inqui.
So yeah. Messed up composition, 1 Crus, 1 Saint, 2 Inqui. Half the effing party are clerics. Note we typically run 3 healer no tank (seems to work best for us).

The Kali died at S3 last bar. Overall managed a 37 min clear in spite of that. Not great but the joke is we cleared with a lack of buffs and a lot of cleric DPS.
Once again, take heart that more or less almost every DPS class is viable to do RuDN HC. Even a screwed up Crus + 2 Inqui Comp with only 2 Rune L Wands in the party (rest are using IDN L) can clear it.
Previously on another run where I was using my main Inqui I managed to do almost an Adept's DPS (was 8m behind the Adept), difference is 1 Rune weapon (I was using Rune Wand, Adept was still on Evo IDN). Part of this can be attributed to 30 mobs however, but that is one place where an Inquisitor pick particularly shines with our massive AoE DPS.
As mentioned, Inqui requires a degree of experience to really maximize DPS using Consec and Lightning Storm. The nature of RuDN being somewhat mobile makes that practically a requirement for Inqui to do well.
I apologize if I cannot provide anything more useful than what I said (admittedly it is pretty useless), but if I were to try and describe how you should place Consec/Use storm for every single part of the nest it would be almost impossible.
However, I can try to give some tips based off my experience, but ultimately the best way to learn how to optimize your DPS as an Inqui is to play the nest itself.
In general, when in doubt, Holy Burst + GC first, Storm can come later even if you are not Consec buffed. The reason is losing HB + GC is more painful than losing Consec buff for your Storm.
For S1, only thing to watch out for is his jumps across the map. Otherwise it is a fairly straightforward boss for Inquis. When he is using Fire Breath, abuse Consec AoE (you can easily place Consec while he is breathing so that you can follow up with HB/GC/Storm once his breath ends).
S2 is again straightforward. Consec combo immediately so that when ADAD -> Free people mech comes up your Consec will come off cooldown in time for the burst window. For shield mech, use Block at the end, run to middle, as soon as your Block his stomp you can immediately launch MB EX and proceed with your combo.
Continuous Charge is can be Blocked and iframed. When in doubt, use Block and Heavenly Judgement to cheese the mech. Beware that Heavenly Judgement renders you immobile so your teammates will hate you especially if you are badly positioned.
S3: I recommend you learn pizza mech in normal so you can save HJ for the last bar pizza - pizzas 1 through 3 are easy (half split, no confuse, full confuse) especially if you have a raid leader calling out the order. For Pizza 4 (half duration confuse) stand in the first one and as soon as the explosion hits IMMEDIATELY hit Heavenly Judgement - you will iframe the entire thing and cheese through the hardest variation of the pizza mech.
Dragon: Straight forward. For P1 as soon as you go to the first zone after wisp hits dragon do Consec > HB > GC but don't bother with Storm, just do some fillers as normally you will get interrupted halfway through Storm with the safe zone change. 2nd zone use Storm + fillers. Last zone drop Consec again and do HB + GC again.
Dragon stage itself is a matter of avoiding mana wipes, for Sign mech, note that if you drop Consec and DPS before you need to move your Consec will continue hitting the boss even while your party is drawing the lines.
30 mobs is where you are king. If possible get your party to gather under the boss so that the mobs converge on you and do Consec > HB > Storm. On a good day you can easily kill up to 15 mobs within the first breath.
