Does anyone know where I can find either the Thunder Monger stats, or the Gun Smith class for the Artificer? I have checked practically everywhere on player class book guides, and even in equipment book, but I can't seem to find it.

    \$\begingroup\$ @guildsbounty I’m about 99% sure there existed games that had something called “artificer” prior to Eberron. \$\endgroup\$ – KRyan Mar 13 '18 at 16:22

  • \$\begingroup\$ @user43068 I’ve done it for you this time, but for the record, that information should go in the tags rather than in the question’s body. Just so you know. (In the body isn’t really “wrong” but it definitely needs to be in the tags.) Anyway, voting to reopen this, but you might consider adding where you heard of these things/why you think they exist even though you can’t find them, that context can help people answer the question. \$\endgroup\$ – KRyan Mar 13 '18 at 19:16

    \$\begingroup\$ Are you absolutely sure you're asking about 4e D&D? Because no official WotC content for 4e contains a Gun Smith class or Thunder Monger weapon, while those are real things for 5e D&D. \$\endgroup\$ – Oblivious Sage Mar 13 '18 at 19:26

This specialization does not exist in 4E

The Gunsmith Artificer, complete with the Thunder Monger power is a brand new addition that was introduced in the D&D 5E's Unearthed Arcana playtest materials, found here.

Prior to 5E there is no official D&D (or Pathfinder, for that matter) content that paints an Artificer as a gun-wielder.

This was a sufficiently striking change from how Artificers worked in 3.5/4e that Keith Baker, the guy who invented the Eberron setting (which introduced Artificers to Dungeons and Dragons) posted on his blog to talk about how weird he thought it was to give the magi-scientist with a specialization in enchanting stuff for themselves and others...an actual gun.

If you're still looking to play D&D 4E, then I unfortunately have to tell you that the Gunsmith specialization does not exist in the edition you're playing. It was introduced in 5E.
