    Default Dusting off the Artificer

    Sounds like you need a good starting weapon. Check your AH for the Slaver's Hand light repeating crossbow. It is a very nice repeater for flesh mobs.

    Shadowdancer is okay for an Artificer. I recommend Draconic or Shiradi Champion. Fatesinger was fun when I started my epic destiny grind. That was my first choice. If you are heading towards Shiradi Champion, choose Fatesinger first to reduce the grind to get there.

    I am mostly using Slaver's Hand on Fleshies, Silver Slinger (still need the seal to make it epic) for undead, and my good old Lit II as a general purpose.

    Epic Calomel tier 3 is my main xbow. Slotted with Good, I can work with Deadly all the time, and don't have to carry a bunch of bolts from House D for DR breaking.

    Slaver's Hand Crossbow is good as an epic WoP, since it deal con damage as a WoP, and still have poison damage on top. The downsize is, everything on Epic Hard and Epic Elite have Epic Ward, and is basically immune to WoP.

    Epic Silver Slinger is still awesome for undead beating. But if you are playing solo, and not fighting skeletons or liches, I think a holy burst epic xbow of greater undead bane deal more damage. Haven't done the math yet to confirm.

    And, of course, Needle is the best crossbow in the game right now (best base damage, better crit profile, ranged alacrity 20%). On an artificer, you can even break double DR with it (infuse with good, use metal bolts). Good luck pulling it from CitW.

    I want DDO to be a better game. Those are my personal suggestions on: Ammunition, Archmage, Combat Stances, Deities, Dispel Magic, Epic Destiny Map, Fast Healing, Favor, Favored Enemy, Half-elf Enhancements, Monk Kensai, Monk Stances, Past Life, Potency, Potions, Ranger Spells, Summons, Tiered Loot.
