Fantastic in combat in wvw, way better than gyro spam garbage. Really impressed with the quickness gimick. needs more minstrels though.

Deficit Owl said this build was great June 2017

Solid build for engineer in WvW. Can hold its own very well and provides the usual scrapper support along with permanent quickness.

Bronze Medal - Basic
Whatever said this build was basic June 2017

Have tested it and I found it not good. The synergies of this build look nice on a piece of paper but I experienced no further use from quickness since most of my opponents tried to keep distance between us and had trouble to get near them. Hammer is actually the worst possible weapon choice for that class in wvw imo.

Quickness engineer is currently the best spec for WvW engineers. You rarely get access to stab in public groups, but luckily stability on dodge will provide more than enough anti-CC. As long as you don't stand in Corruption wells, you will never die. Stealth and condition cleanse aswell as healing provide excellent support capabilities, while permanent quickness improves your offensive capabilities. If crowd control becomes an issue, you can always swap ElixS to ElixB for additional stab, however if you pay attention to the red circles, you should be good to go even without additional stability,

Adds a significant amount of sustained damage compared to other scrapper builds while keeping similar defensive ability. Loses some defensive ability without adaptive armor but between hammer 4, stealth access and two elixir S still has fairly easy time surviving. Excels in GvG settings where the significant damage increase to a support slot is very valuable, but still has a hard time competing with a Warrior/Necro for stability party slots in open field.
