Or both of the following:

2. Once the player has finished registering, go downstairs to a star-shaped room. Head towards the second room on the right side wall to talk with Rasputin alde_alche175107.

3. Rasputin will discuss ill-prepared Alchemists and then give a math oriented exam. This exam consists of two addition-subtraction questions, three multiplication-division questions, two questions pertaining to discount-overcharge, and three questions about the DEF and weight of certain items and armors. The player will need to answer 80% of the questions correctly to proceed.

Note: If the player is job level 50, they will skip this part of the exam and can move on to step 4.

Math Questions:

13+25+37+48 = 123
12+23+34+45 = 114
1,000-58-214-416 = 312
1,000-36-227-348 = 389
14*17*3 = 714
12*24*3 = 864
10,530/3/5/2 = 351
9765/3/5/7 = 93
(35*19) - (1,792/7) = 409
(47*28) - (1376/4) = 972
(2,368/8) + (24*17) = 704
(2,646/7) + (13*28) = 742

Red Potion (12), Fly Wing (5) Butterfly Wing (1) = 909z

    Profit (35,200-33,440)*5 = 8,800z
  • 4 Padded Armor
    Standard price = 48,000z
    24% discount = 36,480z
    20% discount selling price = 38,400
    Profit (38,400-36,480)*4 = 7,680z
  • 3 Tights
    Standard price = 71,000
    24% discount = 53,960
    20% discount selling price = 56,800
    Profit (56,800-53,960)*3 = 8,520

Potion studies

4. After passing the quiz, head to the next room and talk with Darwin alde_alche1315. He will explain the basics for creating potions.

Note: After Darwin lists the items required and asked him about the flower, speak to him again and if 710.png Illusion Flower is in your inventory you can offer it to Darwin. This will allow you to skip the entirety of the quest line, and move on to the final step. It is highly recommended to offer an Illusion Flower.

The player will need the following items for this part:

  • 1 Red Herb
  • 1 Yellow Herb
  • 1 White Herb
  • 3 Empty Bottles
  • 3 Medicine Bowls (The 3 Medicine bowls can be bought upstairs from the male Alchemist NPC)

He will then ask questions regarding potion creation after he explains the process.

5. Move to the next room to meet with Van Hellmont. It is not actually required that the player make counteragents or mixtures, the player just needs these items to do this part of the quest:

  • 1 Alcohol
  • 1 Detrimindextra
  • 1 Karvodailnirol
  • 2 Empty Bottles

6. With these items, head to Alberta|Alberta Mansion (alberta 102,222) and go upstairs to the second room on the right (alberta_in 133,55). Talk to the NPC near the corner (Louitz) and he will tell the player to talk to Aure Dupon in Geffen.

7. Go to Geffen and talk to the NPC (181,114) near the eastern Kafra, who will tell the player to talk to Morgenstein, the crazy scientist. Morgenstein (141,140) is located on the second floor of the Blacksmith Guild in southeast Geffen (181,62).

8. Talk to the scientist to learn about Counteragents and Mixtures. It is suggested that the player also buy 5 Mini Furnaces while you are in the Blacksmith Guild for another part of the quest. The player can buy these on the first floor of the Blacksmith guild.

9. Head back to Al de Baran to talk with Van Hellmont. He'll ask the player two questions pertaining what was just learned from the Dye quest. For reference:

Dye Quest
Counteragent Detrimindextra (1) + Alcohol (1)
Mixture Karvodailnirol (1) + Alcohol (1)

  • 5 Coal
  • 5 Mini Furnaces
  • 2000 Zeny

13. Head to Juno, and enter the building in the southwestern area (yuno 52, 105). Go upstairs to find two brothers. Give them all the items and they will attempt to make Gold.

14. Once the experiment is complete, head back to Al De Baran and talk with Nicholas again. This experiment fails most of the time and the player will receive a variety of items from iron ores to gold depending on luck.

Becoming an alchemist
