WoTC has had three versions of the artificer released for the fifth edition, and enough attempts at third and fourth that it’s time for me to call it. A consistent complaint I’ve had with artificers over the years is that I don’t particularly want to be a spellcaster. I want to tinker with magic items, and robots and such, but I have no interest in just casting a spell to do it. It’s a skill over magic issue. I figured it was time to write one on my own.
