Summary

This build has one purpose: give Engineers a valid alternative to Berserker gear. And it does it perfectly.

 

You will be able to do around 8k-12k per tick with conditions, remember that even if you don't have Ferocity you will still have a good amount of Power and Precision, giving you a lot of damage.
Although I have not compared properly the damage between Berserker and Sinister I am safe to say that this build is on the same league of Berserker.

 

Relatively easy to play, might be found a little harder to deal with moving targets.
Rotations are definetely not complicated and you can always experiment new ones without too much difficulty.

 

The build itself is fun to play and is a nice change from Berserker.

 

I hope this encourages everyone to experiment with builds because the meta can change only if people want to change it. Have a good one.

 

Edit: IntoTheMists hasn't implemented new stats yet, if you have HoT go Viper armor and weapons instead of Sinister to get max Dps.

Weapon and Skill Details

Pistols are the perfect choice, Grenade Kit too, Bomb kit also, and Flamethrower is a really nice Add-On.
Healing Turret and Supply Crate are really good for your party with those AoE heals but can be changed if Tools is.

 

Tool Kit is not recommended since his "Pry Bar" 5stacks of confusion can't compete with Flamethrower's "Incendiary Ammo"/"Air Blast"/"Napalm".
Elixir Gun is a viable alternative to Flamethrower, it exchanges some stacks of burning with party utility (Condition clear, AoE heal).
Having that said Flamethrower is still the best option, but Elixir Gun can find its uses if you/your party have trouble staying alive.

Stat and Effect Details

Boons
Thanks to "Adrenaline Implant" you will have the same effect as having perma-vigor.
"Streamlined Kits" gives us perma-swiftness which is always nice.

 

Conditions
A lot of bleeding, burning, vulnerability and poison; these four conditions will be permanently on our target, giving us DPS comparable, if not superior, to Berserker gear.
Confusion will be able to do a good amount of damage but we won't be able to keep it permanently.

 

Control
"Glue Shot","Glue Bomb" gives us immobilize and cripple.
"Freeze Grenade", "Endothermic Shell" will provide chill.
"Flash Grenade", "Smoke Vent", "Flash Shell" are good blinds.
Be careful when using "Air Blast" to not push your target away from "Napalm", to prevent that you can go on the enemy's side in order to push just a little further down the line.

 

Fields & Finishers
"Fire Bomb","Napalm" are fire field which can help our party stack might/launch burning bolts.
"Mortar Shot" is a 100% Projectile finisher.
"Smoke Bomb" can provide some stealth, if you are solo and you need to do a skip I recommend switching "Grenade Kit" with "Rocket Boots" in order to help yourself.
"Healing Turret", "Regenerating Mist", "Elixir Shell" will give us a water field, be careful with "Regenerating Mist" since his field will last only 1 second.
As for Blast finishers we have "Big Ol'Bomb","Detonate Healing Turret", "Flame Blast".

Upgrade Item Details

"Sigil of Superior Earth" adds a really good amount of bleeding to our build
"Sigil of Superior Smoldering" helps us keeping perma-burning on our target, increasing our burning damage in the meantime.

 

I do NOT recommend any sigils/runes that focus on might stacking, might is not required and putting upgrades into it means wasting them.


V. Basic Gameplay

Rotations are welcome, but not needed.
Just by staying on Grenade Kit and sometimes switching to Pistols we can keep an incredible amount of damage on our target.

 

One thing to be careful about is to remeber to use "Glue Shot" before using "Fire Bomb"/"Napalm" if the target is moving.

First Method
First time - Full rotation
Second time - Skip what's on CD
Third time - Full rotation

 

Second Method
After finishing the rotation you can keep using "Grenade" until "Grenade Barrage" has a 4s cooldown, then restart the rotation.
"Incendiary Ammo" is used everytime it is available, I recommend starting with it just for his cooldown to come back as soon as possible.

 

Thoughts on rotations
You can build a way more complex rotation than this one, this one is useful for normal mobs/veterans.
I could go on and write it down but it would be long enough to be truly hard to remember and follow; I suggest to go on and find the most suitable for yourself.
