So, all of the engineer elites feel pretty sub par when it comes to single target DPS. Don't get me wrong, I like Supply Drop, but it just feels like more of an oh sh*t skill when multiple mobs get out of hand. Is it viable instead to use something like Hounds of Balthazar, Charr Warband, or Mistfire Wolf against bosses? Or do they just do too little damage/are too fragile?

Supply drop is considered one of the best elites, and i do not question that tbh. the stun alone is awesome.

Over all, Supply Drop is the most solid.

The other two have their nitches, but those are extremely situational, like in CM Butler path. Mortar is great for ranged attacks on rifleman.

Mortar's nice if you have a boss willing to sit still in DoTs and not attack the mortar too often (big ifs). Mash 2, 3, and 4, get off it and lob your grenades or whatever, return when cooldowns are up.

Supply crate is good, I like to use The D-Series golem (asura) for the defense. the mortar i've only used once to its full extent and that was in CoE for one of the golem bosses. I just don't see the point to the mortar, grenades hit harder, go further, have AoE (not as big) and IMO have better conditions. I wish we got better elites, like a sniper, or rocket launcher, or steam powered battle suit (like this centaurs and wind riders made of metal found in some areas). I also like elixer X as it gives you double health, good if your trying to run away, not great for damage.
