How are people planning to build their Alchemists?

Inquisitive took some really hard hits, but if anyone can make it work, it’s Alchemist with a 2 level splash of Artificer. Light and Heavy Crossbows are simple weapons and you’ll get the poison damage together with the law damage.

Up through level 11, I’d probably take the pewpew feats, but carry a pair of caster sticks and throw vials of AoE elemental/poison damage at enemies. From level 12 and on, you could turn on the Inquisitive with an AP respec.

I don’t know if it will be great, but I don’t feel like farming for gear and there are very few thrown daggers at all and there are zero thrown daggers that I find interesting until the legendary raid levels.

Monk Shuriken ranged thrower builds don’t become fun until level 20 in my opinion, so I’m expecting that leveling a dagger thrower Alchemist will be similar.

AoE boom > everything else while leveling

Inquisitive has very good single target damage still and could have a viable amount of damage still with the Alchemist bonuses. Especially since you don’t have to throw any AP into Harper.
