Build Fundamentals

Playing Alacrity Mechanist is pretty straightforward as you will be applying Alacrity when you apply barrier thanks to Mech Frame: Channeling Conduits, making your Auto-attack chain almost enough to sustain permanent Alacrity.

During fights, try to always finish Mace Auto-attack chain for barrier and Alacrity application and keep generating your boons, use Mech command Crisis Zone off cooldown to ensure 100% Alacrity uptime.

Keep in mind your Mech skills can be interrupted by querying different skills. For example, it’s very easy to interrupt a long, channeled cast of Barrier Burst with any of the other Mech skills or Rocket Fist Prototype if you are not aware it will trigger Rocket Punch due to Mech Fighter interaction.

Might will be applied through your and your Mech’s Auto-attacks through Mech Arms: High-Impact Drivers.

Remember it is not just you giving boons, It’s also the Mech. Make use of Shift Signet (which is also condition cleanse and stun break) to reposition your Mech if necessary for optimal boon application. Use it before queuing Barrier Burst, otherwise, it will interrupt the cast.

For your rotation you will be switching into grenade kit periodically and throwing your high damaging skills: Shrapnel Grenade, Freeze Grenade and Poison Grenade. This will help upkeep max stacks of Explosive Temper. You will enter grenade kit roughly every 2 Mace Auto-attack chain to throw grenades. Use Overclock Signet off-cooldown for a dps increase or save it if you know your mech will die.
