This page is about the Alchemist class; for the Brotherhood of Alchemists quest, see Alchemist Quest.

Alchemist is a class introduced in the base game. It does not need to be unlocked.


An Alchemist is a manipulator of materials using magic. They do not use the forbidden arcane arts practised by the mages of old - such perverters of nature have been shunned or actively hunted down since the Spellblaze.

Alchemists can transmute gems to bring forth elemental effects, turning them into balls of fire, torrents of acid, and other effects. They can also reinforce armour with magical effects using gems, and channel arcane staffs to produce bolts of energy.

Though normally physically weak, most alchemists are accompanied by magical golems which they construct and use as bodyguards. These golems are enslaved to their master's will, and can grow in power as their master advances through the arts.

Their most important stats are: Magic and Constitution

Golem Birth Options

There are a couple of unlockable options for your golem when you start the game. They are listed as cosmetic options Needs verification, but they actually have an impact on the game, as they each give the golem a certain extra talent category, each containing one talent.

If you defeat Tannen and his Drolem as an Alchemist, you unlock the option to make your golem a Drolem in future games.

If you have the Forbidden Cults expansion enabled, and you defeat the Glass Golem from the Forbidden Tome: "The Illusory Castle" as an Alchemist, you unlock the option to make your golem a Glass Golem in future games.

These options are mutually exclusive. Needs verification
