Artificers create charged magical items, such as wands, armor, boots, swords, etc. They have the ability to invoke any type of magical item, except scrolls and musical instruments. Because of their vast knowledge of magical equipment, they can often identify precisely what an item is and its properties. They even have the ability to convert their mana into charges of an item in order to boost it or recharge it! As if this wasn't enough, they can nullify cursed items and remove the affixed curses! Finally, some Artificers begin to permanently take on the traits of magical items they have equipped for a while, even long after the item is gone. So while they don't cast spells directly, they can produce and use a wide variety of magical items.
