Artificers are Forgotten Artificing Assets that can be hired to perform various tasks in order to raise the character's Forgotten Artificing level and to produce melee weapons. Artificers are required assets needed to complete most Forgotten Artificing tasks from levels 14 to 20. They can also be added to tasks that offer optional personnel asset slots to reduce the completion time for those tasks. Additionally, they also count as Rank 1 and Rank 2 persons, so they may be used in lower level tasks that call for [Carver] and [Engraver].
Grandmaster Artificers provide a 50% speed bonus to the tasks they are assigned.
