In Topic: Did Steel-Packed Powder & Shrapnel Change?

I am also noticing a change with how much vulnerability I can stack. Before the patch, Fire Bomb, Smoke Bomb, Glue Bomb, Concussion Bomb, and Fumigate would stack 16-18 stacks of vulnerability when used in succession. After the patch, I can only get up to 14 stacks.

On a lighter note, this is an excellent build guide Volcanis. I like that you took something that works from the high level meta and brought it to the engineer in a unique way. It sounds like a great alternative to try for anyone that likes the "healer" concept as scarce as that is in GW2.

Thanks. I would like to add that this build has a lot of potential in an organized group in WvW. Those of you who have adopted this build, I urge you to try it out in WvW and you will be amazed at what you can do.

3 Bleeds is why you should be running cleric's (knights, soldiers, whatever). Unless you like to sit on the elixir gun alot. It's a huge waste when spamming bomb auto-attacks.

Build is plenty capable of both heal and might spam, you can just go with whichever is more useful at the time.

Sounds logical, but try killing profession NPCs in the Heart of the Mists with a Shaman's Amulet and then with a Cleric's Amulet. You will find the Shaman's Amulet kills them a lot faster. This is because confusion, burning, poison, and the few bleeds add up to a lot of damage (and your Bomb is still hitting hard).

Rampager's may be a good substitute for Apothecary, but you will be losing a lot of long-term healing potential. However, your burst party healing rotation will still heal for 8000 with 0 Healing Power, but it's not as reliable as Regeneration, Super Elixir pulse heal, and Elixir-Infused Bombs.

I appreciate you coming to this thread to solidify your thoughts. I'll try out Grenade Kit with Grenadier in place of Elixir R/U, but I'm a bit worried about the lack of stun break. I run at least 1 stun break with every profession, and if I remember correctly, I don't think you run any. What advice do you have while running without one?

I do find myself stacking might for the party before an engagement or stealthing the party more often that performing the burst party healing rotation. That being said, the Healing Power is maximized through my long-term healing via Regeneration, Super Elixir pulse healing, and Elixir-Infused Bomb. The burst healing is very niche since my long-term healing does a good job as is.

I had some trouble finding the right Invention Traits and I am happy with what I have. Elixir-Infused Bombs is well worth the investment, as well as the 300 Toughness and Healing Power. I don't see how investing in Alchemy will benefit the party.
