… seems the obvious solution.
Now I have no idea how to play the class. Would it be possible to simply choose Alchemist, level up to class 45 and stop there (this would mean trivially level up a character to 120 or so)? It would be a waste to invest a character slot for just shops and potion making no?
Otherwise, what would be good complimentary classes to actually play the character normally? I already have a dark wizard, a pyro and a cryo, and I always try to play characters with different classes, which means I would only go with the following remaining classes: Chronomancer, Necromancer (unlikely), Sage, Featherfoot (subject to pick for future dark wizard patch), Rune Caster, Shadowmancer (subject to pick for future dark wizard patch).
Why not a support wizard? Something like Alchemist-Chronomancer-Sage? This is still the highest ranked build for Alchemist…
