This is a general overview of the Guild Wars 2 Engineer. You're comments and suggestions are welcome. The Engineer without question has a lot of excellent tools at their disposal.

It's a class that can fit a wide range of play styles while allowing you the joy of playing a class that is a jack of most trades and one allowing you to master a lineup that works best for you.

The Engineer is a class that is option friendly with an array of choices as to how you want to operate in the game world.

Pistol shield is one I've not tried and I've seen very little discussion about it. As of late I've mixed up switching between Grenades and Flamethrower. Glad you enjoyed the video.
BuzWeaver
Glad you enjoyed it. Interesting that you mentioned that because at launch it appeared as though a lot of people were playing ranged classes, in particular Rangers and lately I've been seeing a lot more Melee's, Warrior/Guardians. It could be that many of them have leveled their ranged classes and want to mix it up with some Melee. The Engineer doesn't have to bad of melee capability themselves. 
BuzWeaver
Great advice Haefod! I'd like to add that its also important to be as effective as you can with what you choose to use too. 
BuzWeaver
That's been my line of thinking as well using Sigils to make up for what I'm not getting in traits. As I mentioned in the video in the time I put this together I've already changed gear several times. What is your Skill Line setup? Thanks for your feed back! 
BuzWeaver
You're right it can seem and feel overwhelming. Now that I'm in my 60's I'm still discovering new ways to play. There is a certain sense of freedom to playing an Engineer, but what its coming down to is how effective you can be with the tools you pick to use. 
BuzWeaver
Ironically I'm still waiting to see what changes may bring me back to the game. I stopped playing in October. 
BuzWeaver
The purpose of video was to get feedback and suggestions, although I do welcome criticism as well. So much about my build has changed and I wanted to make this very generic so there would be room for discussion. 
BuzWeaver
Nice build.

Stopped watching when you had 12, 11, 12 in your traits... dude, you could have 10,10 and 15, which gives you one more minor trait than what you were doing... WHY Also, you're spreading your stats too thin. Pistol is conditions mainly, grenades are quite power focused. Its best to focus on one.
Stefan Gagne
Good mix here; some exlir, some turrets, some nades, etc. I've seen too many folks claiming the "only" way to go is grenades or pistol/shield, so seeing something focusing on all-around performance is nice.
