Arcane or Artifact?

How does magic present itself in your game—though spellcasting, or magic items and artifacts?
I like spellcasting. Artifacts suck.

I like spellcasting. Artifacts are very rare, things you quest for.

I like a mix. Spellcasting is more common, but every hero can use an enchanted longsword or ring of protection.

I like a mix. Artifacts and items are more common, but an honest wizard makes a good ally.

Inspired by the What's Your Fantasy? poll …


Secondary question: if you've never considered the other options before, would you be interested in trying these other styles?

I prefer a combination of the two though leaning towards Artifacts as a more reliable form of magic. This is especialy true in my fantasy cyberpunk

I like risky spellcasting and safer, though much rarer, artifacts. Over-common reliable magic tends to dilute the sense of wonder.

Personally I think artifacts should be rare, but it kind of depends on the setting. In high magic, I don't mind regularly enchanted items because there's a means for it. In low magic, I tend to replace enchantments with crafted enhancements.

A magic sword with block is supernaturally aware of incoming attacks and guides the users hand to intercept blows. A normal sword would just have a basket hilt to catch the enemy's blade.
