Artificers are the practical technicians of the magical world. In Eberron, magic is almost technology. Spellcasters specialize in certain forms of that technology, while artificers tinker with its fundamental workings. Artificers understand magic on a different level from spellcasters, and do not cast spells as wizards and clerics do. They have an amazing facility with magic items and constructs, and in many ways, they keep the magical world of Eberron running.

From maintaining complex enchantments along lightning rail lines or on board an elemental airship, to customizing the combat enchantments from a strike team deep behind enemy lines, artificers take the magic that is already at hand and applies in a more efficient manner, essentially getting more spell for the silver.

Role: An artificer takes on the role of a magical item expert, giving access to magical effects that the rest of the party would not normally have access to and giving the ability to handle magical devices they come across. The artificer is often looked to provide solutions for situations where either brute strength is not enough or the available spells are not appropriate to the task at hand. While they aen't incredibly suited for front-line combat, if given the proper time to properly prepare then an artificer's infusions can easily turn the rest of the party into a tailor-made fighting force against their chosen foe.
