What happens to an Artillerist artificer's Eldritch Cannon if the Artillerist falls unconscious?
The cannon is a magical object. Regardless of size, the cannon has an AC of 18 and a number of hit points equal to five times your artificer level. It is immune to poison damage and psychic damage. If it is forced to make an ability check or a saving throw, treat all its ability scores as 10 (+0). If the mending spell is cast on it, it regains 2d6 hit points. It disappears if it is reduced to 0 hit points or after 1 hour. You can dismiss it early as an action.
The three options given for the cannon disappearing are:
- Cannon HP = 0
- 1 hour has passed
- Dismissed as an action
So presumably the Artillerist falling to 0 HP doesn't affect the cannon; it will remain but will be inactive until the Artillerist has been revived. Is this interpretation correct?
