About This Build

Survival comes from boons, as does some of the damage. The control this build has is much better than it may appear and considering everything around you is doing damage to your enemies just getting near the engineer is painful. Conditions are where a large portion of your damage is coming from so this feels weaker against Guardians. As a point defender in sPVP this build is great.
