Artificer tango icon 20px.png Artificer is a crafting discipline that focuses on magical weapons such as foci, scepters, staves, and tridents. These are useful to guardians, elementalists, mesmers, and necromancers. Artificers also craft sigils, potions, tonics, and nourishment that can be used by any profession. Crafting requires the use of a crafting station.
