Overview

An Engineer build for PvE players without the Path of Fire expansion. This build deals high damage and is highly versatile thanks to its plethora of kits. However, the sheer number of skills available means this build has a high learning curve. Players who aren't comfortable with the complexity can instead play Engineer - Elixir Bomber.

This build is a very good complex build using kits. If any new player wants to really learn about Engineer's kits and swapping through different kits and what not, this is the build. Has decent sustain and damage as well.
