Summary

This build uses great synergy with grenades ,bunker down, and vulnerability. Bunker down provides a ton of med packs for healing. The high vulnerability uptime provides increased damage both RAW and CONDITIONS. Everything hits really hard with the rifle, toolkit, and nades.

Trait Details

Explosives:
I - Increased velocity and radius of grenades. Grenades is just a great cleave/aoe kit and improving them is overall a good choice in explosives tree.
V - Shaped Charge. With the use of grenades throwing 3 by default, plus with all your mines from bunker down / other traits / abilities its a great damage modifier. Your target(s) will most likely always have vuln up.
VIII - I chose shrapnel to add additional effects to my explovies (grenades/mines) it stacks bleeds and cripple. Great for baiting out condi cleanses--especially on some guardians that like to spam meditations whenever they have a condi.

 

Tools:
II - I picked reactive lenses because it is an automatic stun breaker! Free stun breaks! Engineers really lacked any stun breaks in previous builds. I believe at most we had 1 on a 25 sec cooldown when traited. After this had been used it was game over to any team that was paying attention.

 

IV - Steamlined Kits - If you time this properly and use it with toolkit (wrench) you get a free superspeed! Great for gaining distance for escapes or kiting. You could change it to "lock on" (V) if you prefer. Honestly anyone in the master tier can be used based on your personal preference.

 

VIII-Adrenal Implant- 50% endurance regen! Again this tier is personal preference. I have used (IX) Gadgeteer for slick shoes and I believe works with (II) reactive lenses to provide quicker cooldowns.

 

Inventions:
II-Automated Medical Response-Best choice here in my opinion. Every 10 secs your healing skill becomes active! If you are in trouble kite with toolkit shield + superspeed and then use your heal again!

 

VI-Mecha Legs-Great passive to conditions that really hinder engineers
VIII-Bunker Down- Great trait. With grenades you will dropping mines and med packs all over the place. Med packs can be used by your team! With the cele amulet the med packs heal for 600 hp and they drop every 2s with a critical hit!

battle is a bad sigil to chose unless you have extra might uptime through runes, your better of with the doom sigil.

with hoelbrak runes, the battle and doom sigils with a celesital amulet this build could be much stronger than it is.
