sPvP Engineer Rifle Burst

Description

Engineer PvP Rifle Burst Build

So, this build is a very 'glass-cannon'-type build. However, as engineers we do have quite a few ways to stay alive. For example, the tool kit gives you the block ability as well as laying the nails to cripple anyone chasing you. Furthermore, you should have constant swiftness and vigor, giving you plenty of endurance for evading.

The highlight of this build is on lightning strikes that accompany your toolbar use and auto-attacks. The rifle turret gives you 'Surprise Shot' which deals 264 damage and with my traits has a cooldown of

*Note*: I never place the rifle turret as I'd lose that 8 second surprise shot + lightning strike

The lightning strike works with all gadget skills, so I throw my wrench as much as possible. It also occurs fairly often with my rifle.

I use Elixir C mostly for finishing off opponents.

Some other ways I play him are with:

Amulet
Knight's Amulet + Berserker's Jewel

Runes
Superior Rune of Melandru
Superior Rune of Divinity

The reason I'm running around with Berserker's/Berserker's is because I'm experimenting with damage output. You do lose quite a bit of HP when compared to the alternative amulet/rune builds I listed, however, as a glass cannon build I also feel like there's no point in trying to pretend to be anything else. The aim, therefore, is high damage output that comes out quickly.

I play this as a roaming character in tourny matches due to my mobility and ability to come into confrontations and quickly burst a character and finish them off with Elixir C if my teammates are unable.

I'm still trying to finalize this build. I'm still experimenting with the trait I choose in the Alchemy line. Constant vigor is nice, but so is Elixir C at 25%. Anyway, I'm welcome to any suggestions.

Below I've listed the alternative item builds for my character. I'm still having trouble deciding what combination is best. What do you think?

For some reason it is not editing correctly. This is how the second paragraph should read:

The highlight of this build is on lightning strikes that accompany your toolbar use and auto-attacks. The rifle turret gives you 'Surprise Shot' which deals 264 damage and with my traits has a cooldown of < 8 seconds. On medium armor targets, if you crit then the shot does ~900 dmg, the lightning bolt around ~900-1100. If there are multiple enemies that lightning bolt bounces and even has a chance to return to the original enemy, causing an additional ~900-1100. So, every 8 seconds you have the potential of creating 2.75-3K damage. ALSO, Surprise Shot is great because you can shoot it absolutely whenever. Stunned? You can shoot it. Knocked down? You can shoot it. Feared? You can shoot it.
