Considering a 14th level artificer with the Metamagic Adept feat in D&D 5e:

  • I'm assuming that the feat does not grant the ability to restore sorcery points by expending spell slots (since it doesn't grant the Flexible Casting feature)
  • It seems to me that an artificer could use the Bloodwell Vial to regain the sorcery points when they roll a Hit Dice (once before the next dawn), but they would only regain 2 (since that's their maximum amount)
  • Are there other items/ways to regain expended points?

You have found the only way for an Artificer to restore the Metamagic Adept SP apart from a long rest.

A 14th level Artificer has the Magic Item Savant feature:

You ignore all class, race, spell, and level requirements on attuning to or using a magic item.

So a 14th level Artificer may attune to the Bloodwell Vial, which says:

In addition, when you roll any Hit Dice to recover hit points while you are carrying the vial, you can regain 5 sorcery points.

Since you maximum SP is 2, you would only regain 2.

There is no other way to regain these 2 sorcery points, except through taking a long rest. As noted in my answer here, Metamagic Adept does not allow you to convert spell slots into SP.

This search on DNDBeyond shows all of the relevant results in their database that mention the phrase "sorcery points". The only results are the Metamagic Adept feat, the Bloodwell Vial, and the Sorcerer class.

You can restore them a little bit quicker if you are a race that can long rest in 4 hours.

(Notably, a 13th level thief rogue could probably do something similar with their Use Magic Device feature.)

You're missing one way to regain sorcerer points as an Artificer.

As mentioned, you are able to regain it through the Bloodwell Vial. However there is a slim chance you are able to.

Feywild Shard

When you use a Metamagic option on a spell while you are holding or wearing the shard, you can roll on the Wild Magic Surge table in the Player's Handbook. If the result is a spell, it is too wild to be affected by your Metamagic, and if it normally requires concentration, it doesn't require concentration in this case; the spell lasts for its full duration.

Wild Magic Surge

99-00 You regain all expended sorcery points.

That means you have 1 shot per day to regain all expended sorcery points (2).

Not very useful, but something to point out.
