Spend 10 Lunar Coins In Bazaar Between Time
Artificer can be unlocked by spending 10 Lunar Coins (+1 Lunar Coin to access the shop) in the secret area "Bazaar Between Time". This area can be accessed after completing a teleporter event either randomly, or using a Lunar Coin at a Newt Altar (appearing as blue cracked rock). Within the Bazaar, you'll find the Artificer frozen next to the shopkeeper for you to set free.
Recommended Items For Artificer
|Ukulele||The Ukulele will support the Artificer's solo targeting fireballs, increasing its chance of hitting multiple targets with one enemy defeated.|
|Backup 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||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.|
|Gasoline||Gasoline is a great supplement to the Artificer's Charged Nano-Bomb, dealing damage-over-time plus spreads around to enemies nearby.|
|Paul'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.
The Back-up is a great equipment to support the Artificer - providing backup firepower during boss fights and when facing tankier enemies.Check Out All Item List Here!
