GW2. Best Open World Build. Celestial Mechanist. Engineer PvE.
Last Update: October 2023
This Mechanist build focuses on gaining plenty of might and sharing it with your Mech while having plenty of survivability. You can change one trait to provide Alacrity to allies in group events if you need.
- Superconducting Signet
- Mech abilities F1/F2
- Mace 2/3/Pistol 4
- Spam Grenade Kit 2/4/5
- Mace 1 or Grenade 1
Setup your Ground Targeting option as “Instant” as well as enabling “Skill Retargeting” and practice aiming with your Grenade Kit while moving for better accuracy. This improves your damage output while under pressure or kiting drastically. If you still have issues to land grenades you can try using the option “Snap Ground Target to Current Target” and the grenades will go to your target as long you are in range, just make sure to detarget before using any other AoE like if you want to throw an elixir at your location.
