Tips for a new alchemist?


8 posts in this topic

I wasn't too into alchemy since launch, but since the alchemy stones have come out, I've seen what stats you can get from them and am wanting to craft my own. I've found all the matts required and know how the upgrading process works. I'm looking for some tips for crafting blood of the sinner in high quanities. The bloody tree knots seem to be a pain tho, and was wondering if there was any good way to get them outside of the worker node on treant forest. Not sure if it helps to get lucky axes and hack at fir trees, or any trees? Not sure if specific trees drop the bloody knots, or what gathering lvl you would need for them to be worth using energy to farm for.

Currently my gathering is prof 5, and my alchemy is apprentice 5. I know I have to get to skilled before I can start messing with the alchemy stone itself, I'm just primarily looking to mass craft blood of the sinner. Any help would be appreciated.

There isn't really anything you can do, chop some trees and hope for bloody tree knots or have workers gather them, both of which are incredibly slow and painful; your other option is to buy them for 10k a pop is stupidly overpriced, I think I mustve spent atleast 30mil+ on them alone, so either way you're screwed, but you only need 5 sinners blood for a stone anyways I believe. ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)

If you're doing it for XP rather than wanting the sinners blood alone, as you only need it in small amounts for stuff, you can make some low-tier elixirs. As your alchemy skill goes up, you get more exliris per set of mats you use to make them so the xp goes up based on how many you make.

Just check these out and find which has cheap mats and get working on it, Alchemy levels pretty fast anyways.
