    I just hope Engi has some long ranged stuff. I don't want to use shotguns or rockets, I prefer to be at medium range from my targets, not right up close.

    Tanky enough to survive melee but enough range and damage to kill stuff and Traps/Gadgets to escape and lock people down sounds like fun,

    Engineer does sound fun when you put it that way. Now I can't wait for the official reveal.

    Or...
    Maybe he meant to give examples of both armor types while also namedropping the engineer, but instead he accidentally said the other heavy armor class, warrior.

    Or he meant to say engineer and warrior instead of stalker and warrior.

    Flaw = Any class can appear with any armor type. Carbine has stated that you can wear any armor as a costume. So appearances in armor are deceiving.

    Based on those images though, it looks more like Medics wear Light/Medium and Engineers wear Medium.

    Really the more I try to think of engineer tanking, the more I keep thinking of stuff like this:



    For those who know nothing of WoW, that's a caster DPS spec with a half-caster/half-tank gear setup smoothly tanking a raid boss that, at the time, would eat average tanks for breakfast. The end result was a high-armored, high-health caster that could still hit hard enough to maintain threat. Sure there wasn't really any sort of snap-aggro move or a whole lot of damage avoidance, but it worked at the time (especially when that was back when moonkins had to melee for mana regen).

    That's how I expect the engineer class to work as a tank though: high health, high damage mitigation, metric ton of burst to keep those dirty looks coming. Then again, I suppose this should be saved for another thread while the devs keep pulling these sorts of stunts to make us keep thinking about the game and have all of us going "OMG HE JUST SAID 'ENGINEER', SOMETHING'S CONFIRMED!!!!".....genuine slip-up, or impressive troll? Dunno, don't care, mostly because I'm still looking at details on the other class.

    BTW, I remember a different name for ranged tanks. Pretty sure they were called kiters.....or suckers, idk.

    Does anyone else here hope that they don't stick with the name 'Medic' for the other class? I just feel like the name would come with a really strong stigma, that it really should be healing. like if youre playing a dps medic, youre doing it wrong. and that would kinda suck. I think a name more like the firefall advanced frame 'Biotech' or something of the sort. One that implies biological manipulation, but could easily be seen healing or damaging. What do you guys think?

    I'm not too worried about it. If someone is doing bad DPS, I'll just say their doing bad DPS and move along. If someone wants to be "witty", we can always /ignore them. :speechless:

    LOL you calling me the most obnoxious is cute. Very cute.

    Yet I'm still on your list.

    I think you have that backwards, BTW. You won't even be able to lay a finger on me.
