Im planning on finally equipping my good old Engi with a full 80 exotic set, but that's an great investment that can not be made without a long thought process. Now, I've been out of the Engi loop for a long time and I have no idea what kind of builds work nowtimes, so Im hoping to get some help from you people.
There's been a lot of great topic here on Guru, but people have drastically different opinions, and a couple topics with valuable information may have been buried somewhere, forgive me for making a new topic.
Alright, so my Engi should be primarly WvW focused (tho I'd really like if the build or at least equipment would work some way in dungeons), using Pistol/Shield. In the "Art of the Spanner" by Primalpat (great stuff!) he mentions three interesting builds - Tank, FT Tank and Condition Damage. All three seem interesting (the CD one and tank most I guess), and all have different gear...damn! MrForz posts in the same topic suggesting THIS and, of course, the gear is different. Now I'd love to experiment with it, but I just do not have enough money to afford it.
What I do in WvW is mostly roam solo or with a small group of friends (rarely more than 5), doing commando supply camp stealing, dolyak slapping and picking up fights with others and I'd like the build to fit this "scenario" (1v1, small teamfights). Im thinking Rabid, Carrion, Rampager (tho this does not really fit my "tanky" needs...), or maybe even Soldier's (because I've got a bunch of tokens to get a set on the go ) gear, but completly can not decide.
Now, dear fellow Engineers, please help me out!
PS. Im trying to stay as far from Grenades as possible, in no scenario they will appear on my utility bar!
