What is the Engineer?
The Engineer is a class that can provide sustained damage or can become a beefy tank. They carry a huge gun, wear heavy armor, and use bots to help them in battle.
Is the Engineer a ranged or melee class?
The Engineer is mid to long range, depending on the Engineer's Action Set.
Does that mean the Engineer tanks from range and shouldn't be at melee range?
Even though Engineers have ranged abilities, they also have skills and armor that grant the ability to stand toe to toe with their foes. As an Engineer, you'll be just as comfortable keeping your distance or up close and personal.
Can I have multiple bots up at one time?
Yes! The Engineer is able to have multiple bots up at the same time.
Since an Engineer can have multiple bots active at a time, how do you control them?
There is a standard action bar that issues basic commands to all bots at once. There are also player-activated bot abilities...
What is a player-activated bot ability? Do player-activated bot abilities use free form targeting?
Yes! All player-activated bot abilities require the Engineer to using position and aiming to be effective.
