Undeniably a good and viable bruiser. Damage is really the only aspect that is lacking here, but the immense boon uptime, condition cleansing, team support, and general tankiness make up for this shortcoming.
This is the most potent a scrapper build has been since PoF for sure.
Now with the bugfixes and nerfs to other specs, it improved a lot. Bit squishy but makes up for it with healing.
May edit: still very good burst healing and solid AoE cleansing, but this is in a weird spot for me, I don't know how I feel about it. If you want to play it, feel free to, it's possible to do well with this build and has a high skillcap.
It just lacks a more defined role, I feel it's stuck between Druid and Firebrand in that regard, but not good enough to replace either of them (even after repeated nerfs). Druid is still a better sidenode spec and has almost all the benefits of scrapper to some extent. For team fights nothing can replace a Firebrand. Scrapper can do both but will be mediocre in comparison, and paired with a Firebrand (instead of replacing it) the lack of damage will be noticeable for the team. It's really versatile though.
After several weeks of using this build I find it quite easy to carry teams using this build. The damage output is good enough to stall caps indefinitely or even kill non-bunker classes. Blast tag gyro makes the build able to decap quite easily allowing for more self sufficiency. If Function Gyro gets fixed eventually this build will just get better.
Most fun engi build atm. Very tanky with endless amounts of condi cleanse.
I'm having a lot of fun with this build in lower tiers. There are some options in Scrapper line and utilities but Alchemy and Inventions shouldn't be changed.
