    Default Engineer's Commandments

    Because I like the Commando thread yet feel more than ten will find their way here.

    1: Thou shalt Heal and Revive, for it is thine primary function. Yes you can cast Area of Effect spells, but you are the primary group healer and the ONLY way to revive downed members in a run outside of platinum spending.

    2: Thou shalt let the commando go ahead of you into the swarms of enemies. Thine armor is superior to an Operator's, but not by enough that you can tank.

    3: Thou shalt carry lots of mana potions. Thine skills are paramount to keeping a group moving through hordes of pirates/Cultists/Bugs/Aliens. Without your skills thou art simply a poor man's commando, a /very/ poor man's commando at that.

    They are on their own. I discarded revive in favor of better skills for PvP.

    Mine so far only take into account PvE or group PVP. Solo Pvp.. well.. you're on your own.

    Instead of hating on engys why not create one so it is no longer an issue?

    Want a list of names of people that have watched me prove this false? i hate playing com so i tank on my engi. when newt joins a run, there is always a healer and a tank, even if there are 4 ops there. Sure, if there is a com that can out aggro me, then they can tank.

    Oh I'm not talking about people who know enough of the ins and outs to make the tricky bits like tanking with the crappiest armor in the game work. I'm talking about your average folk/newbies.

    haha, i see what you mean. although i still think it is better if you get rid of rule #2. it's entertaining to watch noobs rush mobs themselves and die. i need that laugh every once in a while.

    i suggest adding to this "but if you do, plat rez yourself so you can do your job and heal/rez others

    Thou shalt not leave the group to rez a member who ran off on their own and got killed. Unless the group agrees to wait for your return.

    Do not blow all your mana in a single rush of 'spam everything in your spell slots so you'll have no mana for continued heals'. This goes triple if you're out of mana potions.

    FYI. I'm an Engineer.

    To be fair engys mana and mana regen was nerfed pretty hard in the new content release. So as I use an engy with my main. Have patience with us. We do what we can. We are the only class that really needs to pay attention to what others in the group are doing. Everyone else can tank and spank.
