  • An artist's value as a companion lies in masterpieces. Promote these companions quickly to earn the most from their work. Otherwise, they can be a disadvantage to the group with their limited capacity and low toughness.
  • Artists can be valuable to a hunting/outlaw strategy party, as their upgraded blue dice are needed for combos with the Hunting Rifle, Signature Rifle and Dynamite.
