Engraver's Shop is a specialty shop in Wehnimer's Landing. Members of any of the Cooperative Houses of Elanthia may have their shields engraved here.

[Engraver's Shop, Atelier] RNUM: 8857
Weapons and armor, intricately engraved, etched and damascened, line the walls of this impressive, cluttered workshop. Apprentices and students hunch over benches, lavishing ornamentation on finely forged arms. Overseeing it all from one corner is Karl Owntafeet, Master Engraver. You also see a large sign, an uncomfortable chair and the master engraver.
