Alchemists are Forgotten Alchemy Assets that can be acquired as necessary components for completion of Forgotten Alchemy tasks from Forgotten Profession Level 14 and above and/or as optional components in Rare tasks that will reduce the completion time for their potions or dyes.
An [Assistant Alchemist] can be acquired from a task at Profession Level 13. The task requires 4x [Mixologist]. Alchemists of higher tiers may be acquired from [Professions Booster Pack] purchased in the Zen Market. Alchemists are not bound and may be bought and sold on the Tarmalune Auction House or traded.
A task requiring an Alchemist as an asset will take any tier of Alchemist in its slot. Higher tiered Alchemists serve only reduce the production time for the task. An Alchemist may also be used in place of an [Apothecary] or a [Mixologist] for tasks that call for them.
At Profession Level 3, 4x [Alchemist] can be upgraded to produce a [Master Alchemist].
At Profession Level 4, 4x [Master Alchemist] can be upgraded to produce a [Grandmaster Alchemist].
At Profession Level 13, 4x [Mixologist] can be upgraded to produce an [Assistant Alchemist].
There is no task that will allow an [Assistant Alchemist] to become an [Alchemist].
