Hello fellow adventurers!

I am hoping to build a pure alchemist that uses a healthy dose of Inquisitive.

What ranged feats are needed? Can I take any metamagic feats? Shoot, what Race works well??? Seems like tossing some AOE would be worthwhile. My toon has 2 PL's of Druid and PL of Bard so no real casting help. Here's what I am thinking initially:

1- Point Blank Shot
3- Rapid Reload
6- Rapid Shot
9- Precise Shot
12- IC: Ranged
15 ???
18 ??? I suppose this should be IPS, but I was never great at lining up monsters, so maybe sticking with the new Archer's Focus is better?

Thanks!

Do you want to kill one enemy at a time or do you want to kill multiple enemies simultaneously at nearly the same speed that you would have killed one? Even with the nerfs, IPS is a must have unless you are only pulling and killing one enemy at a time. Which none of us are doing outside of VERY specialized circumstances.

Also, the one feat you forgot was Precision. Must have for both the To Hit and for the Fortification bypass

Currently I am running a halfling and use pbs, precise shot, quick draw, rapid reload, rapid shot. Quick shot because you are switching weapons still. Level 18 and can solo most stuff right now. Key is dexterity and picking the evasion you get. Tier 5 is inquisition and am debating on any more alchemist or put into halfling or what at this point. I am sure there are better combos out there but this works well. Panacea is broke right now so no healing there. Be sure to max out sp as much as possible. Observation gives fortification bypass as well so not really a big deal. Just need a great crossbow, I use the diplomancer level 15 from the anniversary party underway yet.
