This skill has an 8-second cooldown per charge. These are mines that explode when an enemy steps in them. You can place 10 at a time in an area. If you try to place the 11th one the first one will disappear. The good thing about these mines is that you can use them in quite different ways. Firstly as stated above you can place them in an area and wish for someone to step over them. The second is to predict where the enemies will go and place them in their path. The third way is that you can stick the mines onto enemies. Trying to stick them on someone can be useful if they are near your turrets or some other area.

This skill has a 30-second cooldown so it can be a pain waiting for it to come back. You can use Leeching Seed or Infusion to heal the turrets and give them a buff with other items. You can drop 2 turrets in an area and watch them do some good damage until they get destroyed in mere seconds. If you place a turret on top of another turret they will become healing stations that will each other as well. Holding onto a turret can be useful as you can get pinched in a spot and because of their cooldown, you can die. But if you have a turret you can just throw it down for bait to take damage while you take high ground or something.
The best way to play Engineer in combat is to place both your turrets then lay down mines around them and use bubble shield around them.
