      I will be playing an old loxodon striving to be as cool as his children who study the arcane. He will be putting his tribal portable ram to good use!

      It's right there and it's great, artificer warforged. My all time favorite character that I've played has been a warforged envoy artificer called Tinker and they are amazing

      I have been playing an Artificer Artillerist for about 2 months now and am in love. I am a Mark of Warding Dwarf who is a Tavern owner who spends more time out perfecting his craft gathering new and intriguing ingredients while my family runs the Tavern. I use my Magical Infusion Alchemy Jug as my focus and when I take a swig of the ale I cast various spells from my mouth. This class is just amazing with so many reskin options. My favorite class of 5e.

      I'm so upset that the base artificer loses extra attack at 5th. That absolutely destroys the alchemist I'd been playing from UA.

            I like the changes they made to Artillerist. Now your turret can be a handheld flamethrower if you don't want to play a "pet" class. The wand ability has been retooled as well and now you can weild a force cannon in one hand and a spell blaster in the other.

                        I'm pretty upset they got rid of the Warforged subraces. Less upset about armored versatility (that was always gonna get scaled back, though I do think they went too far with it), but the subraces were fertile ground for some incredible stuff with the Warforged. There was even a homebrew I found that expanded it further, with medic and magetouched races... it could have made the warforged really special.

                        Oh, well. I know the first houserule I'll make in an Eberron campaign.

                            Well, my excitement is tempered by the lack of an Archivist. That was my first choice of a backup character in my main campaign, which means I'll probably just have to get my DM's blessing to keep using the UA version.

                              Alchemists lost their best ability in favor of a once per long rest barely useful elixir that’s completely random on top of that, and if you actually want to use it more than once per day or want to actually choose which already mediocre effect you get, you have to expend a spell slot, as a half caster that barely gets any slots. Meanwhile the artillerist basically gets to cast burning hands every single turn as a bonus action and the battle smith gets an infinitely better version of the alchemists original homunculus feature. Alchemists got screwed over extremely.

                                  When they get it done do you think Psion will be a subclass of Mystic or Mystic a subclass of Psion.

                                This is actually the exact class I need for my gremlin/goblin. She’s an inventor and loves tinkering with things. Her studies grew from mere curiosity to creating constructs from magic and electricity.

                                    Try homebrewing a bit yourself. If your ideas work share them. Maybe it will help them finish it.

                                          Can't wait for the final version to release! I've been playing with a flavored battlesmith for a few months now. My four legged companion is a humanoid robot with four crab legs. Defensive pounce has saved me so many times! I've had fun building tools and smithing weapons for my companions.

                                            I really hope they also include the Artificer in whatever sourcebook the recent UAs have been building up to; like they did with some of the SCAG subclasses in Xanathar's.

                                              Warforged archivist- he is currently an npc played by my dm for character introduction. he is a spy/ assassin for the enemies in my campaign. The group went to a local shop and bout items including a steampunk style bird that is my artificial mind advisor. using the bird to spy on the group he will eventually switch sides and join them and I will take over the character at that point. on the plus side I am keeping all the gold they spent at my fake shop.

                                                @Bigg Tater Looking at Wayfinders I don't see specifics on that. But Merrix is described as a "warforged innovator", so if anything he'd likely be a battlesmith.

                                                  Honestly out of any class in dnd i love the lore, idea and gameplay of the artificer the most. Sure you can be a wizard and study the strongest forms of magic make new spells even and test the extent of what the weave will let you do.
                                                  But theres something wonderfull about being one of those individuals who actually create all those magic items bags of holding, various types of potions and what have you.
                                                  Items that are widely revered by adventures and arcanists new and experienced alike.

                                                  Im incredibly excited for this class to finally be officially released

                                                      Personally, what I think makes Eberron so special is the magical modes of transportation. Having the lightning rail and commercial air ships makes travel more accessible to the party. It also gives the DM the ability to have a fight on the train or the airship.

                                                            I have an Artillerist from UA, and he is building an arcane rifle, using his wand making skill at 6th level, stock of a crossbow, a spy glass, the enhanced wand spell on the wand for the rifle. Infusing the Fire Bolt cantrip into the wand, then get the spell sniper feat and picking the Sacred Flame cantrip from the cleric spells. When done you should have a rifle that can ignore up to 3/4ths cover and can hit a target up to 240 feet if my math is right, use your intelligence bonus to damage and at level 14 you can shoot the Sacred Flame as well as the Fire Bolt spell.

                                                                Hey, we ever going to get Archivist back in a new UA, or is it dead?

                                                                  Madrock I see what you’re saying, and you bring up valid limiting factors, but I still think they made the right move of removing it for now. Maybe they will put out a new UA with a revised version and then after feedback from that they include it in Xanathar’s 2.

                                                                  I certainly don’t think three subclasses is enough forever. I still rail on wotc for keeping the sorcerer at just 5 when they have an equal amount of UA subclasses. (not to mention poor fighter).

                                                                • Madrock

                                                                  A lot of people seem to think it was on par with a familiar but the artificial mind didn't have its own stat block or turn, and could not move expect for on your turn. It also could only do up to a max of 5 spells cast through the minds spectral form in a day. That max limit was tied to your Int modifier. So, unless you got 20 intelligence right out of the gate some how you probably could only cast 2-3 spells a day with it, which at that level is most of your spells.

                                                                  You also get one free teleport a day, or spend level 2 spell slot for more, but the teleportation is limited to only working next to your spectral mind or other infusions. It has a some great range, but only to a very small amount of places.

                                                                  As for the smiting. Paladins get that at level 2 and it starts at 2d8. This starts at 1d8, which is the same amount of damage as a few other cantrips, shocking grasp, chill touch. And it scales just like those cantrips do as well. Quite a few do more damage, fire bolt, eldritch blast to name some. Those two cantrips do more damage and are actually ranged. The Archivist is also not a really melee class so getting in close to do this is risky. It might not be as op as you think it is.

Invincible familiar, casting non touch spells from your familiar’s location, free teleportation, skill proficiency changing on a long rest, divine smite levels of damage at range, etc.

It just seems "broken" because nearly all the capstone abilities in 5e are complete ass anyway. And I wouldn't say the artificer's is broken at all, it just adds a meaningful bonus to the character, unlike most of the existing 20th level abilities in 5e. Plus, how often does a character or a campaign make it to 20th level anyway? If you think this is gonna break the game you're not thinking in practical application.
