    Default Alchemist bugs I've found

    Thus far only these two, but feel free to add any more that you've noticed. (yes, I bug reported them, this is for information purposes)

    1. The second core on Apothecary that is supposed to give you +4 alchemical AC and magic missile immunity when in robes or composite body does not work. It grants neither the AC nor the immunity. This was on a gnome wearing the Brimstone Boulder Warden's Robe and several random loot robes. Feel free to note if it is working on your character--race and what they were wearing.

    2. The targeting on Lesser Restoration Draught, Restoration Draught, and Greater Restoration Draught doesn't work right and the spell doesn't land when cast on yourself or on another target. It does nothing.

    The first one will work initially on taking the enhancement, but won't react consistently after that; we have a fix, next patch it should be better.

    As for the second one: It definitely isn't working on yourself unless you enable the Accelerate metamagic. (We'll have that fixed next patch). It seems to be working on others in our tests, though - Single-target bottles like the Resto pots have to physically hit them, not just near them.
    We don't only build for the builds that exist.
    We don't only build for the builds that are good right now.

    The fact that some changes are necessary is not diminished by the fact that other necessary changes have not happened yet.

    Good to know. Please also make note that Melt Lock is not working. I've now tested it on chests, levers, and doors. The die roll never happens, the flash never seems to actually hit the target. It just evaporates and nothing happens.

    Edit: Also, please check Greater Evolution. It seems to work for all my stats except Constitution. I took off all my gear to double check.
    Edit 2: Appears Con does work, but is not being removed when changing to another evolution.

    Curative admixture heal doesn't remove poison

    Not alchemist related but still a bug - I ER'ed, and on the bridge between worlds I was offered all the level up dialogue options not just the class I had taken for that level previously. I couldn't successfully select them, but they shouldn't be there at all

    Alchemist weapon imbues are hopefully also buggy!

    They get overwritten by Vistani Blessed Blades and Whirling Blades.

    On a sidenote Blessed Blades (vkf T5) also overwrite Whirling Blades (vkf T5) and vice versa. This seems a bit weird since they are from the same tree on the same tier.

    Probably not a bug, and more to do with the good old "An item can have only one temporary item enchantment at a time. "
    Blessed Blades / Knives almost certainly classifies for that.

    Whirling Blades probably...shouldn't? If it functions like 10k stars and manyshot. But if however, when you use it, it physically gets added to your weapon as a buff, and not to your character as with those feats, then once again, "An item can have only one temporary item enchantment at a time."

    Though if that's the case, I would at least advocate for it being changed to be in line with 10k stars and manyshot's passive character wide buff style. But then it would probably clash with the new "Manyshot but it's only darts and daggers" feat that got added in this update.

    Many of the cool downs on the action boosts do not match their descriptions.

    Default Unable to reincarnate

    I was attempting to reincarnate a level 17 warlock to a alchemist. Everything was fine until I talked to the Lifeshaper in the Bridge Beyond. I continually get "Unknown Error. Please select your class manually." Since there is no way to leave the Bridge Beyond, my character is permanently stuck.

    But there are many enhancements/skills that modify W or add dmg in some way that dont count towards a "item enchantment". Would just like a clarification if this is wai or not.

    I hope that Whirling Blades at least is not wai

    you need to be level 20 to reincarnate unless it's a lesser reincarnation? not sure where the Bridge Beyond is... can't even find a reference for that. you could try logoff then switch to whichever place you are not in, eveningstar or eberron, if you have the expansion. you can get a rod of teleport from the ddo store if there's no other way out?

    Alchemical Studies - Pyrite (+1 Caster level with spells that match either of the two colors in your study) and Alchemical Studies - Verudite don't increase any caster level of my spells on my deep gnome 1wiz/14alch iconic.

    Panacea Poultice don't track his "school" (Gildleaf) as last casted alchemy spell (did nothing about reaction as it wasnt alchemy spell).

    My opinion about Bombandier tree - it should be spell dps tree, but it almost doesn't increase spell damage output. It haven't almost any spell pover bonus except small 2x+5 elemental spellpower, while in pyrite reaction and haven't any max caster levels (it have bonus caster levels, but because alchemic spells are all capped, they do nothing on many levels. Only +5% critical chance and +2% critical damage isnt noticable.
    Burning Ambition is only noticable dps bonus here, but it was nerfed in three ways before update reached lives servers and isn't stronger than one first level automatic half-elf diletant (warlock) feat now.

    Obscuring mist as 2nd tier spell like on dps tree is pathetic.

    Poisoned shot, while using a light/heavy crossbow and moving it does the animation but no effect, standing still does the animation and the effect

    I'm pretty sure quicken only speeds up the animation of your spell actionboosts. Your still slowed and can't attack until when the unquickened animation is supposed to stop.

    Compare it to most of the quickened buffs you need to drink as well. I dont think the induction time is WAI.

    *Edit* Its pretty much how the sharn pass teleport works on live right now, in the fact the animation would finish but it has a much longer time before the spell is actually cast.

    A. it wont let me switch to any other area, (I was wrong it's the Bridge Between). B. I used a +1 Lesser reincarnation heart so it should have worked. This was a problem on Lamannia and its carried over to the live servers. And since my inventory is overflowing I wouldn't be able to access any DDO store item that I could purchase. So I am dependent on someone from SSG helping me.

    Along these lines but probably not a bug . . . the activation animation for the alchemist action boosts is painfully long and makes them almost unusable. I'd really recommend bringing them in line with regular action boosts instead of the hyper-lengthy cast.

    If you are playing pale master wiz with Alchemist , the Inflict wounds SLAs do not count to bypasss the undead immunity to negative energy if you have unholy avatar (the ability that lets you bypass undead immunity to negative damage)

    I have not found a instance where death salve and life salve work at all.
