What's the best rendering engine for semi-stylized works/general animation?
I want good looking results without much shit.

(excluding cycles and luxcore)

Ignore this guy.
Marmoset/Unreal engine are your best options

I'm looking for a path-tracer, I'm doing shit that involves a lot of mettalic envrionments

Metalness isn't predicated on pathtracing, it's just how much the albedo is mixed into the roughness. More metalness, more color at low roughness. Any PBR renderer will work for this purpose, so unless you really need GI or raytracing, just use something fast and easy to work with.

Lumen (especially when combined with ray tracing) might work well enough + UE5 also has a path tracer.

good luck getting colors that aren't washed out by the dogshit "filmic" tonemapper

base color input -> power node -> 2.2

Not even close to correct. Gamma correction hasn't been done like that since the early 2000s, nowadays we handle RGB channels differently for a start. Even if your sRGB calculation was correct it wouldn't undo the other horrors of the ACES tonemapper, like removing all saturation on high values.
