I'ma playing engi. I just got to T1 and have few questions that need answer. Hoping for your's help in there. My survi is ok but i have a problem with dmg. I can take down troll, dragons and that first guy in mill but rest are impossibru. Below are my stats, items and stuff so ima open for suggestions what to do now.
So my big questions would be.
What to do now? farm t1? or soulbound rest of items first?
What set should i go for and which soulbounds and trinkets?
Should i change my stats or build to do more dmg?
Plea no other classes i really enjoy engi but lacking in dmg.
How to deal with Mana problems?
Any discussion is appreciate
Darkness Falls is a raid where you will have to replace items as you get better drops, and eventually you will be able to kill the hardest bosses: Rak'var and Syrel'Khan
The best T1 set for the Engineer is imo the Residual Aftermath set, allows you to practically never die due to insane Aegis of Fate procs, and your damage is great as well, can easily kill every single boss and complete their challenge chests, the mana problem is taken care of by the set-bonus which allows you to leech mana from autoattacks, on my own engineer in full T1 i refill my mana from 0 to 331 in about 2,5 seconds, so a bit more than 120 mana per seconds while i autoattack, and a nice "bonus" is that your autoattacks are almost as strong as your skills, so you don't really lose out on dmg by autoattacking.Your skill build:
I would keep it as is, except for Fire Bash and Charge Domination, remove those 2 and replace it with Shield Bash and Supercharge, Shield Bash will allow you to get 5 charges in about 2-3 seconds, so it's much better than Fire Bash, not sure what you use it for anyway
And Supercharged works if you use Earthquake in melee range, which i think you use most of the time? so extra damage, Charge Domination is rather useless imo as it requires you to kill mobs and might not even proc, and it's faster to use Shield Bash to build up charge anyway.Your items:
Soulbind all of them twice, Derinkuyu is super simple anyway, so won't take you long to get the required ingredients and it really pays of, i would recommend you to get All Adamant items except for Leggings and Sword, get the other 10 and Soulbind them twice(except for Rings and shield since you can't soulbind rings and weapons/shields), then get a pair of Blue quality Leggings with high stats (a total of over 100+ stats combined) and get Hammer of Retribution and socket it with either 2x Skull of Nalas or 2x Skull of Zardon.Your Stats:
You need to make sure you have 75% Damage Reduction in Darkness Falls and as high of a block chance as you can get, preferably at least 70% (75% is cap) and you want to have 20k HP after debuff as well in Darkness Falls to have a good chance at survival vs. T1 Bosses.Your Spells:
Not sure what spells you are currently using, but i would recommend these spells for you to use, Blocking IV, Weapons Expertise IV, Concentration IV and either Dervish IV or Willpower IV, when you start doing the Executioner you might want to have Willpower IV since it makes you immune to hes immobalize which saves your life
And lastly, i recommend you get as many "Salan's Eternal Eye" (+7% Damage Reduction) as you need, fastest way of getting them is through Vendor Boon Scrolls that drops quite frequently from trash mobs in Derinkuyu.
