This week we get a whole class, the Artificer, before they return to looking at subclasses/archetypes. The artificer was last seen back in February 2015 in the first entry for D&D 5e, titled Unearthed Arcana: Eberron. I’ve had some good alchemist, engineer and gunslinger homebrew options played at my table, so I’ll need a little time to take a look at this in greater detail… but after my first read, it looks pretty good.Unearthed Arcana greets 2017 with a new character class: the artificer, a master of magical invention. In a previous installment of Unearthed Arcana, we experimented with the artificer as a subclass of the wizard. Now the artificer stands on its own, based on the feedback we received about the previous experiment.
They are also looking for feedback via survey for the recent Paladin options.
