Weapons and Stat focus for Alchemist
To play the Alchemist class character at its full potential, it is suggested to equip your character with recommended weapons and stat focus. As an Alchemist, you will start off with +3 Elemental Alchemy for increased alchemical damage and resistance, as well as +2 Engineering for increased armor, the effectiveness of Alchemical Afflictions, and the chance of finding loot. The following are the recommended weapons for Alchemist class:
- Hephaestus Batons- Best weapon option for Alchemist as it is the strongest melee weapon available that scales with Alchemy. It also allows your fire to debuff out incredibly fast and apply heavy damage over time effect to the enemies that can live long enough to get it triggered, such as bosses, more elite enemies, and Titans.
- Franklin Claws – Second weapon choice for frost players with an agility immobilization secondary. It enables a technique for rapidly applying fulmination debuffs to your enemies, which in turn deals huge damage to them.
- Engineering: Alchemist’s main stat focus as it scales affliction modifier by 7% per level and helps in boosting armor.
- Power or Agility: Power boosts your impact and physical damage, while Agility increases physical damage and immobilization.
- Endurance: This would be essential for Alchemical weapons are they use up more endurance for longer combo chains and dodges.
