Overview

The condition engineer build for raids, this build provides high sustained damage and a lot of utility through heals, conditions and CC. It also brings the
aura to increase group damage. This build is very slightly weaker than power holosmith in most cases and has a more complicated rotation, but it has more flexibility to be ranged.

Usage

DPS Rotation

Engineer has a lot of skills, the DPS rotation depends heavily on your alacrity uptime. Though the general idea of a good engineer rotation can be boiled down to using your highest damaging skills off cooldown.

Priority Skills

    • Use these skills whenever they recharge.

While these skills are on cooldown you can rotate between weaker condition skills

Lastly use your grenade auto-attack to fill in the gaps.

  • .

Simplified Rotation

The simplified rotation offers a dps decrease compared to the theorical max dps, but at the exchange of a concistent and easier rotation to memorize.

Use
every time its off cooldown, regardless of what part of the rotation you are on.


First Phase

  • Swap to
  • Swap to
  • &
  • (If in CD, ignore it.)
  • Swap to
  • Swap to
  • X2
  • Swap to Pistol/Pistol

Second Phase

  • Swap to
  • Swap to
  • &
  • (If in CD, ignore it.)
  • Swap to
  • Swap to
  • X6
  • Swap to Pistol/Pistol

Repeat the First Phase.

Notes & Tips

  • If you mess up the rotation, you will have to make a mix of both phases in order to keep the dps flowing.
  • In the
    rotation, add 1 or 2 more
    if you didn't had 100% alacrity alacrity during the
    rotation.
  • In the last
    of the second phase, you can add 3
    if you want concistently use
    in the first phase.

Breakbar

  • Your main hard CC skills are
    and
    .

Control

  • Soft CCs: Keeping Seekers away (Vale Guardian) and holding Charged Souls (Gorseval)
    • ,

  • Hard CCs: Keeping Seekers away (Vale Guardian)
    • ,

Tips

Skill usages

  • Healing turret provides great sustain for your team, able to heal 5 people for a significant amount and curing 2 conditions on each every 15-20 seconds.
  • You can pick the turret up for a 5 second cooldown reduction, or use
    for a blast finisher.
    • When choosing to
      you should do so during
      for a blast in the created water field.

Ivanyeil Emmixert said this build was great June 2017

An experienced Engineer will always be able to take 2nd best dps with experienced teammates, and the top dps in bosses where the condi engi shines.

Completely great build overall, you cant go bad with this build as long as you show you know your Engi well.

Meaby change streamlined kits for take down round and adrenal implantants for kinetic batery (double incendiary ammo) this can maximalize your dps.

Neijala said this build was great February 2016

The best engineer build for raids and a great condition damage build in general. On top of that it provides some utilities like water fields, blinds and good CC.
