Recommended Items For Artificer

Item Recommendation Criteria
UkuleleUkulele The Ukulele will support the Artificer's solo targeting fireballs, increasing its chance of hitting multiple targets with one enemy defeated.
Backup MagazineBackup Magazine The Backup Magazine will increase the number of uses of the Artificer's Charged Nano-Bomb. This move is useful in dealing damage to multiple enemies and stunning them.
Stun Grenade Stun Grenade Since the Artificer's fireballs damage solo targets better, the Stun Grenade will keep them in place and allow the Artificer to finish enemies off.
GasolineGasoline Gasoline is a great supplement to the Artificer's Charged Nano-Bomb, dealing damage-over-time plus spreads around to enemies nearby.
PaulPaul's Goat Hoof The Artificer does not have a dash or phase move so it has slow movement speed. Paul's Goat Hoof will help it move away when enemies get too close.

This recommendation is based off Common (White) and Rare (Green) items for ease of finding within the game.

Recommended Equipment

The Backup

The Back-up is a great equipment to support the Artificer - providing backup firepower during boss fights and when facing tankier enemies.
