Description: An Artisan is a professional tradesman who specializes in the common skills that make civilization work. Artisans who focus their skills in particular trees will see their apparent class name reflect this due to Artisanal Focus. The Artisan will never be a great fighter, which makes him a poor choice for exploring those monster filled dungeons. However, the Artisan is still able to advance by using his skills and gaining experience while he does! Artisans, like Apprentices, may still choose to go into a more adventurous profession, but like Apprentices, they are unable to go back.

How to Play

Home City

Different cities offer different opportunities, especially for Artisans.

  • Midgaard - This city often has the best player interaction, as it is a common recall location. However, due to its popularity, there is the lowest availability of housing.
  • New Thalos - This city has more housing, isn't too far from Midgaard, and is generally a little more lax on legal issues.
  • Alramus - This is the largest city in the world. They are intrinsically racist towards non-humans, so prices for non-humans will be less favorable. However, they have a very active Commissary, with frequent gathering and crafting quests.
  • Elvenhame - Most inhabitants here speak elvish, and are a little snobbish about it. Due to this, there is often real estate available here.
  • Calinth - This northern frontier city has lots of available housing.
  • Atlantis - Unless you can breath underwater, this city is difficult to work with. Ample home sites available, though.
  • Nidenjord - Great place to avoid the weather. Home sites aren't directly connected to Nidenjord, but don't require too much travel. Darkvision is highly desirable.
  • Orthindar - This great city requires completing tasks to advance within the social structure.

Lesser cities - It is possible to change your recall to other locations, but due to their limited resources, it probably will not be advantageous to an artisan.

Multi-Classing Options and Effectiveness

Artisans can multiclass into any base class or commoner subclass as long as they meet the racial and stat requirements. However, due to their limited combat abilities, high level Artisans are recommended to multiclassing only as other commoners.


  • Artisans earn most of their experience through crafting items of similar level to the artisan. If the artisan doesn't know any recipes of items their level, they could use the LEARN function of crafting skills to deconstruct items found around the world in an attempt to expand their catalogue of recipes.
  • Artisans may appear as a different class title due to their Artisanal Focus. This affect can be toggled using the ARTFOCUS command.
  • Social Artisans could also earn experience by offering their services to adventurers in exchange for the adventurer's servitude.
  • The QUALIFY command will show a maximum number of learnable crafting and common skills. This field does NOT apply while you are an Artisan, but as soon as you change class out of an Artisan, this will be the limits of new skills of that type that you may learn.
  • Legendary Weaponsmithing is available at level 60, and exclusive to artisans.
  • Many recipes will have multiple words in the recipe name. It is always best to put quotes around the "item name" when issuing your crafting or building commands.
