The original pistol/pistol Condition Engineer build has made a resurgence into the meta, due to recent buffs to the Tools line, and the synergy it holds with the currently strong Alchemy line. This build excels at bursting with strong conditions, and escaping strong power damage focus.

  • Geomancy is for a much more aggressive style of play - while it does more damage and bleed application, it requires you to swap weapons in melee - use if you are confident in your positioning.

Rune

  • Balthazar Runes are taken for the amazing 45% burn duration.
  • Hoelbrak Runes can be taken if you are struggling with conditions, or want to focus more on might stacking with our Elixirs.

Amulet

  • The introduction of Wanderer's Amulet elevated this build even higher with the new stat - Expertise. This amulet has 560 Expertise - which becomes 37.333% Condition Duration - bringing our burn duration to an astronomical 82.333%, while also buffing our powerful Bleeds and Confusion.
  • Rabid Amulet is the original amulet for this build, and is still quite powerful when you need that extra toughness.
