Returned and Jumped to the Revenant
1. Revenant is a mix of melee and ranged when you need it. Your highest damage is going to be in melee range.
2. Revenant has a dedicated healing legend and has very good access to very very high outgoing healing through traits.
3. XP boosters, food, fireworks, celebration/birthday boosters, xp banners + bonfire and hang out farming the mad kings labyrinth. Really good way to level very quickly.

I main an Engi and I must say I am loving playing my new Rev. They play pretty similar really. You do have good ranged options. At the moment I am running with staff/Hammer and it works well. Staff for melee and groups, hammer for when I need to range.
I prefer Jalis/Ventari but mostly use Jalis 99% of the time. I am using zerker gear with Jalis and a few nice traits that keep me at 100% hp pretty much constantly. Hint: buy the sigil that causes vuln 50% of the time and use the trait that lets you heal off enemies with vuln on them.
For support you will want to use ventari and it works pretty nicely. I managed to use it to keep a few ppl alive in Kessex vs the champ spider. Yet to test it in serious situations tho. Well worth playing around with. If you loved Engi you can easily adapt to Rev.
@Paulytnz.7619 – yes, indeed I didn’t expect to love the engineer, rather get it to 80 but I do love the engineer class!. Thanks for the suggestion as well, looks like a nice open world build too
@Nickthemoonwolf.1485 – kitten , i was hoping melee was not max dps, but oh well I can’t always get what I want, I guess
