  • Guns and Amore

    Still, I love my engineer, who's my co-main along with my necromancer. And, true to my usual form, I eschew the typical DPS builds like grenades and flamethrower, and go all in with elixirs, playing her with a buffing/healing build in PvE that still can do reasonable damage and stay alive for extended periods of time. I like to think that, just as with any hybrid/support class, it's not about the big numbers I put up but how I help other players put up big numbers.
