- This class starts with mediocre stats. Utilizing consumables can aid survival in the beginning.
- This class can become very powerful over time, thanks to the ability to craft many Tomes, Whetstones, and Reinforcement Patches, as well as continually improving equipment from the Tinkerer skill.
- Understanding the recipes will help you become stronger when playing this class.
- The Archeologist perk is great for getting a powerful start with certain legendaries as you may get a Legendary on the very first floor of the Tower, something unheard of otherwise. In Suicide Mode you can find up to 4+ legendaries.
- Steady Hands is perfect for crafting a Potion of Carapace on the 2nd-3rd floor and making multiple whetstones or tomes. It can also help in creating Spellbooks for better skills, but it's more difficult due to a much lower success rate.
- The Gunslinger perk is extremely fun and highly damaging but overall extremely risky as you have multiple ways to make fatal errors, Pistol can make you recoil into pits, and you have to position yourself carefully while having the right stats such as speed and magic resist.
- When playing on The Tower, try to craft Tomes (tier 4 paper) as they will permanently increase stats, this could be to great advantage, since the tower is so big you can manage to craft it multiple times. (could be risky getting a stat you don't want).
- The Alchemist's Intellect stat ties with the Thief's for second best behind the Wizard. If you need crowd control skills to keep enemies away use Magic Skills such as Charm Monster and Teleport Away, and Fireball can prove useful as a damage skill. Dispel can be useful too since it ignores magic resistance, but the cooldown time may be too long.
Flavor Text Edit
Act 1 Edit
|Act 1 Text|
|The Village||Six months away and the estate's overrun with bandits. You'll have to take this up with his Lordship.|
|The Forest||These aren't just bandits. This is an army!|
|The Town||They've taken the town. The castle must be under siege!|
|The Keep||How did they take over so quickly? Was the whole household put to the sword?|
|Asterion's Lair||Whoever leads this army... they'll pay for killing your friends.|
Act 2 Edit
|Act 2 Text|
|The Mountain Path||The mountain still smolders. Good. The old forges should prove useful.|
|The Monastery||Dragon Cultists. Slaves to an animal. An animal who, from the look of things, has returned...|
|Spider Nests||Beasts watch each other's backs, it seems.|
|The Caves||The forgemasters' tunnels are vast. Somewhere in these caverns is a path to the core...|
|The Mines||Storerooms, ready heat, the smell of sulfur. Who could ask for a better laboratory?|
|Xiatol's Lair||Here she is! Arrogant and far too idle. Once she's gone you'll put this place to use.|
Act 3 Edit
|Act 3 Text|
|City Gates||The guards seem rougher than before. You doubt there'll be a formal reception.|
|City Streets||Your divinations led you this far... but what now? What happened beneath these markets and townhouses.|
|Mage Academy||Of course - wizards! Who else could be behind this disaster? You're almost jealous!|
|Academy Basement||Is this... a gate to another world?|
|The Wasteland||This strange world! So many wonders! You must claim it immediately!|
|Alien Palace||You could spend years studying these artefacts. But these creatures don't seem too inviting...|
|Shiurath's Domain||If they won't give you permission to look around, you'll wrest it from them!|
The Tower Edit
|1st Floor||You've explored many countries, but this place? This is unique. It's fascinating!|
|Boss Floor||A champion ahead seeks to block your way. Ha! None can stand in the way of progress!
|Tower Block Cleared||Astonishing... that there can be entire towns here, so far from the surface...|
