I know there are many of these ideas and dreams about new classes and you don't have to read it.
But if you would like here is my view. :)
Armor type : Mail armor, agility & intellect Resource : Phlogiston Gas Extra Skill: : "Tinker" Turn a ranged weapon (gun,bow or crossbow into a Pistol (new weapon type) retaining the secondary stats. Usable Weapons : Engineered Custom Pistols, offhand items, (intellect) shield Downside (minor) : Engineering is locked as a profession

Mastery: Nanobots, these little machines increase your healing by x% and your healing skills and some inventions trigger a Nanobot effect on the target.
