Alchemy is a crafting system in Ragnarok Online that allows players to brew potions and craft bombs that can do a range of effects from recovering HP and SP to damaging enemies. Only Alchemist players are able to brew potions and craft bombs.
In RO, Alchemy has a success rate which scales with the strength of the potion being brewed. Typically, weaker potions have a higher success rate than stronger potions. Investing stat points into DEX and LUK will increase brewing success rate in general. For bombs, success rates are applied to each individual bomb instead of the whole batch.
In addition to having the actual ingredients, Alchemist players must also have the corresponding manual in their inventory in order to brew potions and craft bombs. The manual will not be consumed during the crafting process.
The following are potions that can be produced with the Pharmacy skill.
The following are potions that can be produced with the Special Pharmacy skill.
The following are bombs that can be produced with the Create Bomb skill.
Alchemist Ranking is a system exclusive to RO in which players are ranked based on who can create the most potions.
- Rank Point +1: 3 Slim Potions created in a row without failure.
- Rank Point +3: 5 Slim Potions created in a row without failure.
- Rank Point +10: 7 Slim Potions created in a row without failure.
- Rank Point +50: 10 Slim Potions created in a row without failure.
Alchemist Ranking can be checked via usage of the "/alchemist" command in-game. Potions made by an Alchemist class who is in the top 10 list will receive a 50% bonus to their potency. This does not apply to potions used via Potion Pitcher or Slim Potion Pitcher.
