Totally agree that itís weird that Artificer is the pet class. I like the idea that a subclass has pets but feel like it should basically be just one subclass of Artificier that gets pets.

I will disagree strongly that itís bad that this class is a better beast master Ranger. The beast Master Ranger subclass already has a revision and is too underpowered so I am glad they are fixing the pet archetype.
