I've been doing a lot of reading both here on the forums and in the DDOwiki, but I still don't have any real clarity as to what a Mastermakers core stats should be (outside of INT and CON). Do I also need to have pts. in CHA as well? Everything I've read up til now tells me otherwise, but I'd like to be certain from those of you clear on the Class (and Path) and how to play them.
I was drawn to the idea of Artificer because it seems to have so much flexibility in terms of what can be accomplished with them. I really like the idea of supplying support where need be, in addition to casting spells, dealing/disarming traps, crafting, Crowd-Control/buff/debuff/damage from a distance = WIN.
What should I be focused on starting out with this Class stat-wise? And are there feats/skills I should focus on over any other from the onset?
Racial I'm focusing on either Human or Half-Elf (Maybe Drow, if it works beter for the Path), if this helps. (I know WF fits, but aesthetically, I can't stand the Race...>_>)
I appreciate any advice or feedback any of you can offer.
Thanks in advance.
