    Default Pure Int the way to go? What skills are you guys maxing?

    Out of curiosity, how is everybody doing their builds?

    Right now, I feel like this class feels a bit underpowered compared to the operative. Idk - runs are very fast with 1 engineer and 4 dex operatives. They are much slower once more engineers are introduced. It's understandable - this is a beta and there will be balance issues to be addressed.

    What skills are you guys maxing?

    The other concern is the DOT - I'm not sure how well this wills stand up in PvP to operative or commando skills.

    So jealous. Lol, I am this close to cracking and going to buy a Verizon Droid just for the beta, then returning it after it is done and canceling the contract under the 30 day refund policy.

    You're right. I found that out myself as part of using my plat to test each skill at max at level 21. Also, I wouldn't follow your skill set up since I find no use for all of them. I tried it and it did not feel like "the best".

    The reason I say it is because wither isn't really that useful Trans Empathy and Leech are you best skills, Protection its just the buff but I might end up taking it off.... I would replace the Wither for Pain at lvl 2, because Pain is better than wither and revive is just to res.

    Protection is worth maxing in my opinion. I noticed once that I maxed it that I didn't have to spam empathy as much, saving mana. Currently I have empathy and protection maxed, with transferrence probably being third. I hardly used the mez, and it had a very short range; got rid of it totally. Same with wither... Waste of mana. Also got rid of the shield, but I may end up putting one point back in it. Don't have pain yet at level 15. The group armor buff is so good at max that I may steal a point or two from empathy and add them to transference or leech instead.

    If this sounds like a buff-bot, that is basicly how I play my engie. Buff, dps on regular mobs, leech and transferrence on bosses. Much easier than my operative, but the op does a ton more damage.

    In my opinion Protection is good maxing if your a Solo Engi, just because Leech Empathy and Transference are your main forms of surviving, I haven't seen that many Engineers that have maxed Protection, now that release is around the corner I might max it later on in the game.

    revive isnt just to rez in fact it gives a very nice hidden buff that lasts awhile, so if your not putting it into your buff rotation you should probably think about changing it, but that doesnt mean max out revive either, 1 point is still fine.
