Alchemy is a craft that uses a wide range of materials to create of a variety of enhancing and enfeebling potions as well as healing medicines. Also allows for the combination of items to add enhancements to existing weapons as well as the creation of Ninjutsu tools. The Alchemists' Guild headquarters are located in the Republic of Bastok as well as the Empire of Aht Urhgan, though guild representatives can be found elsewhere. There you can obtain Synthesis Image Support to assist your crafting, as well as buy and sell guild related items. Guild members beyond the rank of Novice can earn Guild Points, used to purchase items exclusive to crafters.
The Alchemists' Guild is open 8:00 - 23:00 and is closed on Modèle:Light in Bastok, and on Modèle:Lightning in Al Zahbi.
By speaking to Abd-al-Raziq, the Guild Master, you can sign up to the guild and get a free crystal.
Synthesis image support temporarily raises your skill by 1 point. Advanced support raises your skill by 3 points, and requires a small fee based on your crafting rank. Synthesis Image Support can be obtained from the following Guild representatives:
Every ten skill levels, you are required to prove to the guild that you "have what it takes" by crafting (or buying) an Alchemic item of the guild's choosing. This item can be turned in once you have reached an "8" in skill (8, 28, 48, etc.), or higher skill (up to the cap). Once you have the requisite skill, speak with the Guild Master, Abd-al-Raziq.
Once you have attained the rank of Novice, you may begin to earn Guild Points with the Alchemists' Guild. Note that you may only accumulate Guild Points for one guild at a time, and if you switch guilds, all previously accumulated points are lost. The "Item of the Day" that the guild will accept changes every day at Japanese Midnight, and varies by crafting rank. Speak with Hemewmew, at (K-7) in Bastok Mines to find out what the item is, determine the limit to how many points can be earned, turn in items for points, and to spend points on Guild Point Items.
Guild Merchants buy and sell craft related goods during the guild's hours of operation. Prices can vary greatly depending on supply and demand, and unlike Standard Merchants, they can sell out of inventory.
