@HellcowKeith's opinion on the latest UA Artificer @mikemearls @JeremyECrawfordThe latest Unearthed Arcana presents a new version of the Artificer for 5E D&D. Right from the start, there’s a few things to note.
This is a work in progress. They say at the outset that it’s a rough concept that hasn’t been refined or fully tested. They’re presenting it because they want feedback, not because they think it’s perfect.
This isn’t designed for Eberron. The word “Eberron” never comes up in the article or introduction. The existence of an artificer class is obviously useful for Eberron, but this isn’t specifically designed with Eberron in mind; it’s an artificer that could exist in any setting, and that thus works with the general “magic items are rare” assumption of 5E D&D.
I haven’t tried it out. I’m juggling a lot of projects right now, and I haven’t had a chance to review the class in depth. Dragonmarks: The Evolving Artificer https://t.co/M4GQVr2tFD
