And you're forgetting the part where they could probably agument Relics with them. Rakata Augmented Relics are some of the best in game, and were unique to Artificers. Now everyone will be running around with Augmented Campaign, and the one perk to being Artifice is gone.
Yeah, I just spent the last week running dailies to get another chance at RE'ing a Campaign Relic. Finally got it, so I can make the BoE ones for anyone, but I'll have to get my Armstech character to make Augment slots for it. That's not fair, considering they're asking an artificer that invested the time to LEARN the Campaign schems to invest even more time (or money) into an augment kit or a character that can make them.
