    Power Scrapper is an incredibly strong open-world Engineer build. It has high burst damage with 100% Crit Chance and great crowd control. You gain Barrier by attacking and give yourself almost permanent , , almost 25 , and Superspeed!

    This builds is based on Instanced PvE version providing group , but covers a few additional alternatives that might come in handy in Open World.

    Build Fundamentals


    Most of your damage comes from Electro-whirl, Thunderclap, Grenade Barrage, and Shredder Gyro. Use these skills off cooldown.

    Modified Ammunition allows you to deal more damage for each condition on a foe. That means using Shrapnel Grenade, Poison Grenade, and Freeze Grenade increases your damage to enemies, so use those off cooldown. Grenade Kit itself is also a good ranged option if you need some breathing room.

    You have access to almost all key boons in the game, almost permanent for yourself (and the bulk of it for your group), Superior Rune[s] of the Pack and Superior Sigil[s] of Strength will supplement your self and .

    Your Auto-attack chain will provide you with some , but it’s also one of many other sources. Thunderclap itself applies , but Whirl finishers like Electro-whirl and Shredder Gyro used inside the Lightning field from it (or from Spare Capacitor) will apply even more with Brutal Bolts.


    You can provide permanent Superspeed and thus via Kinetic Accelerators allowing you to speed up some events and quests (When escorting NPCs Superspeed will prioritize allies, so make sure no more than three allied players are around the NPC requiring).

    All your Gyros will apply around you once they expire (Medic Gyro will also give upon casting), most of your toolbelt skills, including Function Gyro, will grant area or self-. That makes you not only very mobile, but it also means you have countless skills giving you with Kinetic Accelerators.

    You might want to space out the usage of those skills a little if you want to maximize your movement speed boost (during a quest or escort event for example), as stacking caps at 10 seconds.

    While Function Gyro is used for Superspeed and , during meta events or when in a smaller group, you can keep it off cooldown and use to revive three downed allies simultaneously!

    Big Boomer heals you when you hit a target with an explosion. The barrier is generated via Impact Savant and Blast Shield, the latter also allows your first hit when you get into combat and each hit after a dodge to give you more barrier via Explosive Entrance.

    Rocket Charge and Shock Shield are not high damage skills, while Rocket Charge doesn’t find much use at all, Shock Shield is a very strong utility/defensive tool that not only will block attacks, but also generate even more barrier and apply a large amount of .

    Unfortunately in the default kit, your only stun break is Bypass Coating and you don’t have access to , so if you’ll ever face opponents with strong Crowd Control, you might want to consider swapping out a few utility skills for more or stun breaks (covered in Alternatives section).

    Crowd Control


    Runes and Sigils


    If you struggle with surviving, you might consider switching a few items to Dragon’s or Marauder’s, but first, consider swapping some traits or utility skills to handle the pressure.


    Generally, Blast Gyro is your weakest skill, but it provides some Crowd Control, , (and thus ), when needed swap it for other skills, alternatively swap out Grenade Kit if you need Blast Gyro benefits:

    • Personal Battering Ram is an amazing Crowd Control skill, one of the best you have at your disposal
    • Elixir U for and stun break (you can run Alchemy to benefit elixir usage even more)
    • Bulwark Gyro generates ridiculous amounts of barrier, and the toolbelt skill Defense Field that comes with it offers projectile block and
    • For strong condition cleansing, pick up Purge Gyro


    Alchemy traitline can be a good Explosives alternative if ran with Elixir U, it offers good uptime via synergy between Superior Rune[s] of the Pack and Invigorating Speed, some healing from Compounding Chemicals and even more from Compounding Chemicals.

    In condition-heavy encounters, Purity of Purpose creates amazing synergy with Purge Gyro.
