Amazing DPS build for newer players as it's almost fully ranged and the mech provides effectively permanent DPS uptime. Even after the nerfs other classes will have to put in effort to do more damage.

Very Good build for PvE. A good DPS, and the Mech is very Tanky. It's very good for people who begin HL
