hugo.4705 Posted February 16, 2021 Share Posted February 16, 2021 Spec made by TPenny5071, check it out. https://www.reddit.com/r/Guildwars2/comments/lkt9e5/eod_elite_speculation_4_engineer/The spec name is "Mechanist" I did think about a spec named identically but mine was more on electricity and gadgets using shortbow.The artwork is amazing and I'm very stunned by the details, skills and thoughts put into it. I think it would work very well as the next elite spec.In the trailer of EoD, you have the aetherblade flag; and I'm thinking, why not making a spec based on them? If you have good memories, during LS1, many strong elites and champions aetherblade used graphically impressing attacks, you can find some remnants in twilight arbor, with a boss using mechanical/electrical rotating axes aoes attack. But they used to make a network of electical wires on ground, stomping and shaking the ground, having a force field taking all the damage to throw them back with a lightning bolt and so on. Without to forget that many twisted watchworks were sent along the aetherblades during the event happening at queen jubilee and assaults.I will argue that Holosmith is also, a LS1 based spec, Scarlet prime hologram used chain prime light beam, and she did used holosmith like skills but with her rifle instead of a sword. But let's return to that spec topic:Many can argue "Oh nu another minions specs go away!". I disagree, I prefer that spec concept of having clockwork/steam minions than having glyphs, spells, attacking with a dagger or a greatsword... Shortbow could be a thing with modified arrows making electrical fields, exploding and so on, but I kinda think those are covered by the core kits. This spec also have a cool mechanic of a suit you can control, and gathering cogs to build machines. About the weapons skills, it basically zapping enemies to turn them against each other, having lightning chain attack and stealthing.Here I think mace may be a better weapon by scepter but who knows.What I just love, is the spec icon and name. It is very fitting to me. What are your opinions? To me it is a plausible and cool essay/concept.One of the big con to me is the damage, maybe too low compared to Holosmith or Scrapper.
