What is a good dual pistol leveling build?
Posted 16 January 2013 - 08:36 AM
I'd like to get some critique on it. I also would like to do a bit of WvW and dungeon PVE on the side as well. Am I using the right utility skills, or should I throw in a weapon kit in there? And what gear stats should I look for? Condition damage and precision? Thanks.

you will also easily see which stats you want, when you have found your combination (and most of us have a build for a month and change to some other then - thats the great thing about the class, you can have it all).
Just dont spend too much time here (on these forums). You'll hear alot about what doesnt work, and how other classes are better at this and that. the problem is: youll miss out on the fun when you follow the (very) vocal minority into "omg only nades!" or "condition is the way to go, i got the lol maths!"
Why? Because you can lvl and do all the content basically naked. you can beat most dungeons with 5 turret engineers - if they have fun and know THEIR build. Nothing is more sad than the engineer coming to the party telling me he "specced that great build from the forums, but i cant play it and i hate to play it - and what is this med pack switching for guys??111. The class is bugged!!11"

P/P with full Elixirs is just fine, and there are people using it quite effectively. If you wanna go more support you could always throw in Elixir Gun and move 10 pts from Explosives to Tools (Kit Refinement).

this is fairly sound advice for any class for that matter. There is no downside to trying it all yourself and getting a feel for what you like.

The Pistol works well with turrets because of all the condition and mitigation it does. A lot of the time, enemies will aggro onto your Turrets, and with the Turret defense buff, they can last a little bit. Using Glue Shot can slow enemies before reaching you, and Static Shot punishes them for attacking your Turrets. The Turret toolbelt skills are awesome and enhance the damage dealt from the pistols.
I sometimes take Wrench Kit for the crippling Nails and its toolbelt wrench boomerang skill.
I used to use Elixirs and Gadgets before unlocking most of the Turrets but now it's all I use.
