the engineer just seems a little bit weak at first look,but there are so many cool alchemical items you may craft in an amount of time a player normally cannot afford.

he got some healing powers that will lower the resting time, the sawbones got the only resurrecting power till now. by the way will there be an incantation for it in the near future?
and he is damned good with splash weapons :D.
