What does 'Inquisition' do ?
So i have a lot of Apostles and they have abilities to 'Launch Inquisition', but i don't know what it does.

It removes foreign religions. Cleansing your holy land from other threats.
PlayerOne Oct 24, 2016 @ 12:03pm click and it removes all other religion so I don't need a ton of apostles to convert a city back.

"all" as in "All other religions from all of your cities" with just one click?
PlayerOne Oct 24, 2016 @ 12:08pm 
No, just the one city within the inquisitor's range regardless of the other religions' ranking.

The Apostle can start the Inquisition (As far as I can see it's permanent, not timed) and then you can create Inquisitors that cleanse other religion from your cities but only your cities compared to Missonaries and Apostles that can affect other cities.

It allows you to build inquisitors. Get this after you have your 2 bonus beliefs. You can just keep a couple stationed at your holy site, where enemy apostles/missionaries will try to attack them. This is great because they will generally lose battles and die, lowering that religion's popularity in your area. Keep your inquisitors on the holy site, they will heal every turn.

Cheaper than using a spark of inquisition.

Inquisitors are the defenders of your faith. They are very weak if not in your territory and by a city of your religion (75 combat strength), but get a +35 bonus if they are in your territory/religion which makes them as strong as an unmodified apostle. Since they can initiate attacks on missionaries of other faiths, they can help stem the AI tide of missionaries coming to convert your cities. Every battle they win will lower the influence of the religion you defeated and raise your own in a pretty large radius. They cannot enter foreign territory unless you have open borders or are at war, and don't get the +35 bonus unless you both own the territory AND it is your religion. They also come with 2 charges of Inquisition to cleanse an opposing faith, I like to send them to a converted city and use 1 charge to cleanse, then keep the inquisitor there to kill the inevitable follow-up missionary from the AI. If you use the second charge they disappear (I believe? I actually haven't confirmed that, just assumed like apostles and missionaries disappear after their charges are used.)

As others have mentioned, they heal when on or adjacent to holy sites (as do apostles and missionaries.)

Apostles can also be used as defensive units, but since they don't suffer the penalties of inquisitors when in foreign lands or lands not of your religion they are best used offensively.

Missionaries cannot initiate combat but can be attacked, so they are best to send to convert cities after your apostle has killed any opposing religious units in the area.

Some of the initial responses to the OP are actually misleading in the current build. the "Launch Inquisition" action, which is not explained in the civilopedia/tutorial/advice agent DOES NOT remove any kind of religion from any city anywhere on the map at anytime. It's only purpose is to enable the production of the inquisitor unit (must purchase with faith) in every city on the map which the player owns. This action, along with evangelize, currently costs three charges. Thus if you have an apostle with >3 charges due to a promotion special feature, it is best to use the "spread religion" action until only three charges remain and then "Launch Inquisition" which will consume the apostle but enable immediate production of inquisitors at cities with temple level holy sites.

yes, but inqisitor can only be bought with faith in a city with A) a holy site and shrine plus temple (or equiv) and B) a majority religion. (preferably your religion)

And this thread was necro'd why?
thelebk Dec 1, 2018 @ 12:46pm 
@Exemplar Yes that's what I said.
Exemplar Dec 1, 2018 @ 3:15pm 
Yes, I see now. I read "enable the production of the inquisitor unit (must purchase with faith) in every city on the map which the player owns" and then you put the qualifier to the statement sentences later. Sorry I missed it.

There's a reason it's 'misleading' it's nearly 3 year old info. Most people are smart enough to look for newer posts guides and patch notes, and all you did by dredging up the old thread was add to the confusion.
thelebk Dec 1, 2018 @ 6:27pm 
@Lemurian your assessment is incorrect. This "old" thread with misleading information is indexed before any newer thread you are referencing. Sadly many of these old bugs and design issues persist to the present day.
