Unlocking the Alchemist
Before you can trade secrets with the Alchemist, you’ll need to complete the “Powerful Alchemy” quest. Here’s how:
- Craft a Laboratory and Mortar: These workstations are essential for basic alchemy. The Laboratory unlocks at Construction Rank 3, while the Mortar requires Rank 5.
- Gather the Required Items: Once you have the workstations, collect 10x Earth Essence, 10x Wind Essence, 10x Water Essence, and 10x Fire Essence. These can be dropped by enemies or found in resource nodes.
- Talk to the Blacksmith: Head to the Blacksmith in your settlement and offer him the collected Essences. This triggers the “A Black Cauldron for the Alchemist” quest.
- Craft the Black Cauldron: Use the Blacksmith’s forge to craft the Black Cauldron. You’ll need 10x Iron Bars and 5x Wood.
- Deliver the Cauldron: Return to the Blacksmith with the completed Cauldron. He’ll reward you with the “Ancient Vault Key” and reveal the Alchemist’s location.
