This might sound like a weird question, so I'll qualify it: Is there spells, or a class / expert class, for using magic to just do things?
For example: If there's a sort of magocracy, but instead of just the ruler using magic, it's everyone. To the point where if you can't perform magic you are a second (or third) class citizen. So magic is used for everything - rapid fabrication (including large scale like buildings and bridges), transportation (floating disc style, for goods), communications, lighting, and food. Nothing is left untouched.
I initially thought the Conjurer, but class ability wise it doesn't look like what I want (though his school sounds pretty ideal). The (old) Seer is the same - not the right class abilities to do it, but Artifice definitely sounds promising. Of course new Seer might be a whole different beast, so it might be exactly what I want.
