Engineer: The Fusion of Magic and Science.

A not-so-in-depth-guide

Warning: One of the builds below is extremely expensive, so do it at your own risk. However, there is no harm trying and having fun with them. After all, engineer is such a fun class to play.
____________________________________________________________________________
Pros:
- Very adaptive play, you can easily switch to whatever the party desires, be it pdps or mdps.
- Really good auto attacks in p-dps mode.
- High-damage nuking skills in mech mode.
- Combos are easy to chain.
- Good self-support skill (Super Iron Man).
- Very fun to play.
Cons:
- Not many p-attack based skill.
- Nuking skills need a target and only available in mech form.
- High cool-down on self-support skill (2 min CD).
- Extremely expensive to build (well M-DPS engineer only).
- Reliance on c-dmg, m-dmg glyphs.
____________________________________________________________________________
Build A: The True Power of Science:

1. Attack Skills: Heavy Artillery (lv5), Brain Wave (lv15), Missile Destruction (lv50), and of course, auto attack.

2. How-to-gear:
a. Armor Sets:
I recommend using awakened ACC-DMG Light Armor set due to its crit-dmg and acc bonus. However, you have better chance to survive and of course more attack speed with the ATK SPD/EVA Light Armor.
b. Weapons:
I strongly recommend using Lord Pride (lv70 gun) or Lightning Speed Cannon (Lv65 awakened gun).
c. Accessories:
Sadness Ring (lvl45, crafted), Flurry Moon Flower (lvl68, Lunar Hall Fame 4k).
King Strike Necklace/King Journey Necklace (lvl65, crafted).
Saint Knight Cloak (lvl66, Holy Spirit Guardian Fame 7.5k).
d. Trophies:
- Spenja’s Battle Dictionary + Torreyace’s Crystal Heart.
- Alice’s Instruction + Guillaume’s Soul Essense.
- Mytei’s Screaming Blade + Torreyace’s Soul Hourglass.
e. Gems-Enchants:
- LCK Fatal on Gun and Armor set.
- Attacker on Trophies.
- Thunder Owl on Ring.
- Gale on Boots.
- Blessing on Gloves.
- Any Elemental on Belt/Gun.
- The rest are your personal preference.
f. KP-Cert Distribution:
Depends on your Armor set and gun, the KP-Cert Distribution might vary. However, always make sure: Gun Training Talent is at lv15. In addition, 4 green cert combo is a must.

Below are the certs that I usually use (and I believe most of people do, too)


Find Weakness II (Hunter lvl40); Treasure Search II (Hunter lvl60)
Turbine Dynamics II (Engineer lvl50); Quick Aim II (Ranger lvl40).


Calm II (Samurai lvl40); Dancing Master (Blade Dancer lvl60).



Any one of the above EVA/AGI certs.

Your Cert Distribution should look somehow like this

You can replace the EVA cert by any of those EVA/AGI certs.

g. Tips and Tricks: There is nothing special about P-DPS engineer. However, please remember to use your Missile Destruction skill at all time. Being able to cancel is a plus too.
____________________________________________________________________________
Build B: Behold the Nuker!

1. Nuking Skills: Cyber Up (lv20), Oil Bomb (lv20), Black Explosive (lv20), Slime Explosive (lv30), Armor Repair (Lv40), Super Iron Man (lv60).

2. The Gears:
a. Armor Sets:
So far, the best armor set I have come across is the Awakened Fame Light Armor set. It has high Cast Speed, EVA, AGI, as well as decent M-crit rate. Star Frost/Forest Violence sets work well too, although you will have very slow cast speed, which is not really recommended.
Alternately you can use blue armors from drops with Cast/m-rate/m-dmg and AGI/INT/LCK but it would take a long time to collect.
b. Weapons:
Any kind of purple gun w AGI/INT/LCK and M-crit dmg/M-crit rate/Cast speed. However, Lord Pride is a better choice in my opinion due to its double damage procs.
c. Accessories:
Sadness Ring (lvl45, crafted), Illusion/Dark Heart Ring (lvl60, Valencia Order Fame, 4k).
Mysterious Law Ring (lvl63, Witchcraft Nexus Fame, 4k).
Ripple Necklace (Lv40, crafted).
Whirlpool Cape (lvl43, Shining Enterprise Fame, 6k).
d. Trophies:
- Juan’s Demon Stone + Salvio Silver Bag.
- Ulicul’s Love Charm + Wolfhowl’s Beast Taming.
- Gaddis’s Graceful Soul + Fanning Chaotic Crystal.
e. Gems-Enchants:
- LCK Elimination on Gun and Armor set.
- Magic Weaver on Trophies.
- Amulet Enchant on Rings.
- Gale on Boots.
- Any Elemental Enchant on Belt.
- Blessing on Gloves.
- Dementor Enchant on Gun.
- The rest, your choice.
f. KP-Cert Distribution:
Although the 4 green cert combo is not a must anymore, it is still a plus if you want more m-attack. Gun Training Talent lv15 is still highly recommended. It is also nice if you can add KP into Chemical Engineering and Gunpowder Research Talents because they increase the damage of your main nuking skills. Still, the cert-kp distribution might vary for different sets/guns.

The required certs:


Treasure Search II (Hunter lvl60); Lens Optics II (Engineer lvl40).


Rock Soul II (Bard lvl40); Spirit Totem II (Shaman lvl50); Focused Thought II (Shaman lvl60).


Element Fusion II (Mage lvl50); Time Trick II (Illusionist lvl50); Soul Ritual II (Warlock lvl40).

Apparently your Cert Distribution will look like this:


g. Tips and Tricks: It is recommended to use Black Explosive + Oil Bomb since they have a triple hit effect if stacked together. Remember: always use Super Iron Man as soon as it’s off cool-down. Being able to cast animation cancel helps a lot.

Science is magic. Show an iPod to somebody way back in the day and they'll think you're a sorcerer.

It would be nice if you post some screenshots of you hitting people for 5digits in TW with super iron man on. Basically post your peak damage, a huge aoe with many target would be nicer.

Finally a MATK Engi guide! \o/
I've been rooting to make one and every time I discuss it with people and guildmates they always tend to say "You're better off sticking to patk man" "It's just wrong man!" "You might regret it!"

Well whatever! Im off to my quest to make my matk engi, specially now that I saw this. My only problem is looking for a decent blue gun.

Yeah.. Whatever

Quick question, regarding the attacking skills you have put up, why are some at very low levels say Heavy Artillery at 5? Why not max it up instead or put it up on at least a high level?

Yeah.. Whatever

I'm pretty sure the number after the skill (Heavy Artillery[5]) is the class level you need to get the skill.
