At some point I'd like to start an artificer character and was wondering what templates you veterans have used or are using. I already have a smith character but don't think I want him to be an artificer. Guessing arms lore is important, but what else? How about a bowcrafter/fletcher/artificer? If I went that route, would an elf be best? Thanks - this forum and the people on it have been SO helpful to someone returning after a lengthy absence from the game. It's great!
