The House Shyeel Artificer Retribution’s most versatile solo. One that’s able to perform many different functions on the battlefield, each with their own niche. However, recognizing and optimizing the place and time to utilize each of these functions is the key to getting the most out of the Artificer.
Reminds me of a conversation from a movie.
Shrek: For your information, there's a lot more to the Artificer than people think.
Shrek: Example... uh... Artificers are like onions! *holds up an onion to sniff*
Donkey: They stink?
Shrek: Yes... No!
Donkey: Oh, they make you cry?
Donkey: Oh, you leave 'em out in the sun, they get all brown, start sproutin' little white hairs...
Shrek: NO! Layers. Onions have layers. Artificers have layers. Onions have layers. You get it? They both have layers.
Donkey: Oh, they both have LAYERS. Oh, you know, not everybody like onions. What about cake? Everybody loves cake!
