Was the Alchemist Knock spell fixed for the live release of U45? I’m addicted to opening doors and want to know if I have to splash Artificer for Open Locks or if I can use the Alchemist spell.

Unfortunately no, Melt Lock does not work on 90% of locks. I suspect it has something to do with it being a projectile based spell targeting locks that typically have no / broken hit boxes as opposed to knock which just directly targets.

Then What good is the "Knock" spell, if it FAILS 90% of the time?

I guess this bug is still there, I throw the project to chest, and the bottle flying around the chest and then disappear?no DC check, the lock also not open.

We're aware of issues with Melt Locks. We'll be looking into it, but it won't make it in time for next patch (as the R&D needed for the issue isn't small enough to make it in time).

So, here's a thought, just to consider - since you apparently can't "fix" Melt Lock for the next patch, how about a temporary solution, like actually just making it cast Knock instead, and can be used until the special flavor of it does work?

possibly treat it like panacea poultice, make it touch range - instead of throwing a potion at the door/chest to unlock it, you're slapping a handful of crud on it directly?
