Hey all, I'm Hephaestas!I'm a long time player, long time Artificer main (since well, the class came out), and long time Ghallanda endgamer. If you're planning to play an Artificer, congratulations, you're already cooler just by thinking about it! And boy do I have some cool, endgame-designed builds that I use and want to share!
Edit: After many requests, I have decided to add in a routinely updated Google Sheets spreadsheet which I will export my endgame Artificer gearsets to. These will mostly be caster gearsets, but ranged and melee may sneak in too! Each will be labeled by build with an update timestamp. Thanks again for all your interest in this awesome class and for the many requests for info on how to gear at endgame!
My goal is to port over every build I've "published" - but I'd like to update them first, as many haven't been touched in a good long while. Most of what is below has been updated or I am comfortable having them live in deprecated states for educational purposes. So be sure to keep an eye out on this thread or use the super cool new Watch feature! But without further ado, see below!
General Guide to the Artificer class in DDO:
Heph's Advanced Tinkerer's Guide (Outdated OG guide, but still full of great stuff for flavor-players & newbies alike)
The Hardcore-ficer (Defensive Warforged Repeater - No tomes or lives necessary!)
The Artificer: Caster Build Guide (A living, breathing document for endgame Artificer caster variants I have personally played)
~ And other builds to come!
Please enjoy and use these as references and templates for your own builds! I am not the most active forum member (at least I haven't been in the past) but I will certainly try to get back to any and all feedback and messages as my schedule allows. Happy tinkering!
