Alchemist class

Post  Slinkis on Wed Aug 01, 2012 7:22 pm

I read about the alchemist class on another forum, and I think it would be a really fun and unique class to play as. To me it seems like a hard class to implement in the game.
My question is: do you have any plans on creating the class for NWN2?

It's on the work in progress page now. It's one of four-five base classes I'm working on for the 1.43 update.

Love this class concept. Good to see it's being worked on.

Speaking of the class, does anyone have any suggestions/ideas for class specific prcs or epic feats?

I don't really think that the class needs a PrC, and I like the fact that you stay true to one base class. However, one could look at the Pathfinder archetypes and be inspired. The Grenadier PrC could focus on bombs and general fighting prowess. The Ragechemist could focus on the mutagen and enhanced STR, DEX, CON and AC. Another one could perhaps focus on the extracts.

As for feats, I can think of an equivalent of the Spell Specialization (Ranged Touch) feat, with bombs instead. It's hard to think of epic feats that shouldn't be, or already is, discoveries. I'll have to think.

By the way, shouldn't Search be a class skill for the Alchemist? And what kind of bonus is the alchemical bonus given by the mutagen? Does it stack whith items?

I'm a big fan of your work and I hope it goes well.

Search should be a class skill since Perception covers Spot, Listen, and Search for Pathfinder.

Mutagens are enhance bonuses just like any and all types of attribute bonuses. They don't stack with anything else.

I've already pulled all of the discoveries from the archtypes and mixed them into the discovery list for alchemists so there isn't much more left to add from Pathfinder.
