I was fooling around with TK slot bows (for Block/Counterstrike -> Headshot) when I stumbled across this monstrosity:

The originating insight is that you can use Archery talents with a TK slot bow, so I was trying to figure out what to do with the hand-slots. For example, Shield Defense / Repulsion is a lot more attractive when you don't particularly want to be in melee.

From there: "Why not two shields?" -> "Steam-saws are kinda shields..."

Turns out the steam-saw talents and Tinker attachments have a bunch of ways to hurl people away, too, from Saw Wheels (excellent mobility+push for an artillery platform) to Thunderclap Coating.

Also, Grinding Shield is effectively free when you're not spending steam to attack. Very nice to not get one-shotted walking around corners.

Plus, the aforementioned Block/Counterstrike -> Headshot.

Here's a bare-bones starting gear snapshot:

Where do I go from here?

Cunning/Scoundrel for bleed synergy, maybe? I'm building Cunning for Tinkers and Finer Energy anyway.

Help.

Do archery sustains work with a TK bow? What about Technique/Reflexes? Shoot down stops you from killing yourself by being pulled into your own shot, sentinel shuts down bosses, and escape is like another movement infusion.

I think yes to both sustains and Reflexes.

Which ones in specific? I've tested some more than others.

I tried it. I got "You need a missile launcher to use this talent" when I tried to Shoot something.
