The bread and butter of the Artificer class is the ability to make any magic item in the game via UMD checks. You trade the Gnome’s skill at Alchemy and potential ease of gaining Bind Elemental, and in return become better at hitting your targets and are less likely to spend precious Action Points on making a Save thanks to your racial bonuses.

Lets you speed up infusions as if you had spent an action point without actually spending one. Plus you can handle the animal as a move action, thus using your standard to keep firing your bow, and on subsequent rounds, it’ll be fine as the dog keeps attacking and you keep loading move action and shooting standard.

CL 5th, Price 4, gp. The CA version specifically doesn’t have sonic listed though. Depending on what kind of Artificer you want to be, you are going to need ranks in many different skills, and the human skillpoint bonus can be the difference between picking which skills you like more, and picking between which must-have skills you can afford to pick.

To prevent that abuse, the higher ups put in this rule, meaning that the Wizard cannot scribe them over. Yes, that k Item really does take xp to make! At 2nd, you handook want to consider getting a war-trained riding dog to act as a fighter type.

Force Orbs top out at 10th.

Artificer Handbook

Under no circumstances should you drop artificre below a Intelligence you may wish to keep high, both for the skillpoints to craft your own equipment with, and for the bonus infusions per day handbookk grants you. The descriptions are very useful with the gems and makes it a snap to describe what a beryl or what a iolite looks like but doesn’t go into any game effects of what these things might’ve done in their legendary role.

Your Iron Defenders need high hitdice, as they are on the front line, but an Arbalester will be safely behind the defenders, meaning you can afford to skimp on their hitdice. The save DC is Intelligence-based. An artificer can create a magic item even if he does not have access to the spells that arttificer prerequisites for the item.

For armor, you should aim for no heavier than a Mithril Breastplate. On one hand, the heavy armor will give them an excellent base AC, which will allow them to forgo a shield and move up to the classic powerhouse weapons, such as a greatsword. Take spells like Prestidigitation, Mage Hand, Dancing Lights, True Strike, and other spells that have a set effect that does not depend on caster level.

Read it and learn how to properly use this class. Praise I’ve received Spoiler. Turn a shield into a wall for 7 minutes.

Feather token CL 12, 50 to Look for items that increase your movement and mobility, such as Boots of Striding and Springing to allow handbiok to keep a safe distance between yourself and the opponents. PC Buffificers are very frequently Buffificers second, and one of the other builds as a primary.

Its everything that Weapon Focus is, applies to any kind of weapon, and even throws in half of Weapon Specialization, for any weapon. Of good reading but perhaps not as much use as I hoped, were the components. In this roll, the player gets to keep their primary character as an attack oriented action class, while getting the benefit of having someone always being ready to buff you as hanbook.

You can’t emulate feats with the artificer, and homunculus just don’t cut it sometimes with the damage they deal you on death. The artificer must hold and examine the object for 1 minute.

If that check also fails, then the creation process fails and the time, money, and XP expended to craft the item are lost. The Buffificer is one of the lesser if not least played builds, simply because so few players enjoy playing a support character you can reference the constant power ramping in the Cleric for evidence of this.

I usually take these feats in that order. For example, an artificer wants to retain the essence of a wand of artifier monster IV that has 20 charges. These feats remove those penalties, allowing you to hit more often. Energy Admixture has the same benefits of Energy Substitution and has Substitution for a prereqhanxbook also allows you to add on extra damage of another type, letting you hit for two kinds of damage in one attack, giving you the best of both worlds, extra flexibility and extra damage in a single trigger.

Originally created like all wands with 50 charges, it required XP when initially made, or Bottom line here, though, is that there is very little reason to be a Shifter Artificer other than for roleplaying reasons. While any race can potentially join the house, only humans can be blood members with the Mark of Making, and hence only humans can really reach the heights of the organization.


Which means the party tank will be in melee with the bad guys. Couple this with vigor wands or whatever else, you can do some pretty mean damage.

On top of that, they can suck charges out of wands and use them as if they were action points.

Only catch is that you have to be able to craft the item normally before you can use Retain Essence on it as in, you cannot Retain Essence on a magic ring until you actually get Forge Ring. You should not be on the front lines, so you should not be getting hit very often. Take a locked chest that neither your Artificer nor the party Rogue can open, a major roadblock if there is something you need hidden inside.

So you want powerful 4th lvl spells that an artificer can use? Allow the Artificer to meet spellcasting prereqs for PrC as long as he can replicate that spell, and is the same level as a normal spellcaster hajdbook supposed to be.

Mook clearing- A spell or effect that’s good for multiple monsters. Hanndbook and equipment guide I feel this deserves special mention since you can get the following feats for free basically on an intelligent item or using the item familiar bonus powers. If you take the Improved Homunculus feat however, you can get a lot of options to make the Iron Defender a much more powerful choice.

For example, a non-Warforged Meleeficer would do well with Light Fortification, while adding Silent Moves will help keep you from being too obvious while walking about.

You also get 2d6 more damage tacked on. There are so many wonderful things he can do, its unfair to limit the entire class to only what a handful of designers print on a few pages. For example, if you have applied Greater Magic Weapon to your bow and your arrows, you can apply your bow’s enhancement bonus to your AC. You gain the ability to use embedded and attached items, and at the final level of this 10 lvl PrC, you take on the Living Construct type, and get a bonus WF feat, which can include body feats like Mithral Body.

For any of these feats you are assumed to be lvl handboook using the Metamagic Item infusion 3rd lvl or 7th lvl errata for Eberron or higher using Metamagic Spell trigger class feature.
