    Also: could bombs be hidden in tall grass or bushes? Although that might do better with mines.

    Made a Rifle pve build

    http://www.gw2tools.com/skills#e;aNf...daa;Zaaa;ZcYbZ

    Wanted to play with a build using no turrets or kits, So all Gadgets.
    Definitely and offense focus on this build.
    Traits focus on maximizing rifle damage and getting the most out of the gadget utilities (obvious I supposed).

    One thing I'm looking forward to is a a full turret build =) Hoping it's decent.
    Does anyone know if they attack inanimate objects like the gates of the keep etc??

    You could go with a full-turret build and simultaneously build your engineer to be hard to kill, so I think it'll actually be a very popular/powerful build.
    I hope you haven't forgotten my role in this little story. I'm the leading man. You know what they say about the leading man? He never dies.

    If you give in to your impulses in this world, the price is that it changes your personality in the real world. The player and character are one and the same.

    Yeah, the trait that buffs your toughness for every turret along with your already high toughness from the invention line should make you a force to be reckoned with.

    Not just that, but also the traits that activate at 25% HP.

    That's almost exactly like one of the builds I made, should be pretty tough and have good damage output also.

    I was more referring to that, tbh, though I admit you can come up with more offensive turret builds. Some of the stuff in Explosives are neat, too, such as Demolitions Expert and Accelerant-packed Turrets.

    I imagine the build I'm linking wouldn't be all that major of a threat to enemies, though... just kind of a nuisance. We'll have to see.

    I heard about the ability to "pack-up" turrets to move them, but have yet to see anything of the sort in a video. Is it a myth? Seems useful given how much movement there is in the game. Moving out of range of turrets is going to be a huge pain in the arse.

    I believe you just press "F" when near them to pack them up. Alternatively you can detonate them. I'm not sure if picking them yields a lower cooldown.

    picking them up would let you move them as an environmental weapon

    So you can basically only move one turret at a time? You'd have to shlep back and forth?

    Guess I'll just have to make sure not to have more than one turret on my action bar.

    Engineers can also pack up and move the turret around; this will cause the turret to go into a short recharge before it can be deployed again.
    That's all I know about it.

    im back, baby


    the limitation would be both a logical one (they are heavy) and a technical one (the environmental weapon system)

    its not unreasonable

    plus that shouldn't make you only want to take 1 turret. that's just silly

    So... personal build here with a rifle, rocket boots, grenade kit, and elixir gun.

    http://www.gw2tools.com/skills#e;ppa...aaa;Zaaa;bZhfZ

    Now depending on the cooldowns on switching kits I think some fun things could be done. Jump shot in with the rifle, blunderbuss, rocket kick, switch to elixir gun and spray fumes, then acid bomb back out to do whatever else. Big close range aoe burst. Also a lot of constant healing with the healing turret and the elixir gun together. Primary damage would come from conditions, as they have both increased damage and duration.
    And a grenade kit in case I need more sustained area damage.

    Generally just a lot of aoe damage and conditions, but not quite as much slowing enemies than using the abilities to skip around the area.

    Only thing I am wondering is maybe the grenade kit is a bit out of place and I have too much weapon stuff, in both firearms and explosives. Whether I should specialize to one or the other. Rifle/elixir gun help by sending conditions everywhere and bombs can heal people.

    So many ways to make an engineer...
