Turrets are sexy. Hot damn. Also, arcane armament + arcane weapon spell + crossbow expert and you're a walking turret already. Hot diggity.
Normally, I would be reading this, open the reply box, decide what I had to say didn't need said, and close out. But this is just too ridiculous.

I was getting my hopes up for a Cleric Knowledge 2 dip ... but nope.


Re-read the Tools Required and the Tool Expertise abilities.
Can you say double-prof spellcaster ?!
They'll edit that for sure.

I can't figure out a way to make an artificer that feels good. They just feel like they're okay at everything, so they excel at very little?

Can they be good?

Languid Duck did a guide for the most recent 3rd version
(but hasn't finished going through the infusions)

... and did the earlier 2nd version

But yeah your point is quite right ... unless you go all the way back
to the original one from the 1st UA circa '15 that's a Wizard with other stuff.
That one, people found even grappling of all things, to work.

They are clearly holding some future tricks up their sleeves.
The PHB allow crafting as a caster of level 3.  That's it.
Why in the world do you then need special permissions and
Class abilities, to craft the various things on the latest Artificer?
