No matter what Guild Wars 2 Engineer build you use the tool belt is going to be your basic mechanic. It provides the engineer with four different abilities which augment any healing and utility skills equipped in their skill bar. For example, equipping the Med kit skill to the tool belt also provides the engineer with the Bandage Self skill. Tool belt skills can be used regardless of whether the associated heal/utility skill is currently active or not.
Shield and Gadgets for Protection and Knockbacks
Weapon Set: Pistol, Shield
Focus: Defense, Knockbacks, Conditions
About: This Guild Wars 2 build for Engineers uses a pistol and shield for weapons and focuses on a couple of gadgets for utilities. This will allow us to get plenty of conditions on our enemies and also provide us with plenty of knockbacks for defense. We will also pick up another great defensive boon, protection, from two of our utility choices. Since this is a defensive build you can focus on toughness for your stats. We also get 5% of our toughness converted to power so it would be smart to focus on stacking toughness to benefit both stats. Not only will you get a lot of conditions and power, you have the survivability of a tank with this build.
