Artificers are masters of inventions, plain and simple. They look at magic as it was a puzzle waiting to be solved, and no one can solve it better than they can. They use the appropriate tools with which they can imbue magic into an item of choice.

Using their wits and the tools needed for a specific task, such as tinker tools to craft a trinket, or alchemist supplies to brew a potion, they use their knowledge and skill to imbue such items with magic, creating potent inventions in the process.

Their inventions saved thousands of lives but also caused the death of many, as the inventions sometimes tend to backfire. The names of those inventors became known, and some of them are Wix Fizzlesprocket, Mya Sparkleflare, and Rico Shea.
