I met you on your second life (very long ago and you probably don't remember Carrottt), anyway you are a nice guy and congrats! I have a question though... why WF artificer? Sure class seems uber at low to mid levels but after level 16 goes quickly down the list (not very useful and not enjoyable, at least for me). GO SORC! Or wizard, or FvS?
P.S. If you have any questions about EDs feel free to remove Carrottt from your friends list (if you haven't done so 10 lives ago) and add Lutse and/or Rinsewind and I would gladly answer anything
