Alchemy (Easy Leveling)

Alchemy can seem like a hard skill to level sometimes, mainly because the only sets of potions you can make only give you 3 vocation points in this skill.  However, if you buckle down and utilize your gather skill, you will be able to level quickly without too much of a problem.

 

First off, you will want to place your 8x8. I would suggest planting Mushrooms, Thistle or Aloe all of which when broken down using Shatigon's Knife (which can be purchased at a General Merchant), give various amounts of medicinal powder used in Alchemy.  Mushrooms cost less and grow in less time but deliver fewer medicinal powders per process.  Thistle cost an average price and yield more medicinal powders but take more time to grow.  Aloe costs a lot and take a long time to grow but yields quite a bit of medicinal powder in return.  What you choose to grow really depends on your character's cash flow and how often you are in game. However, the main objective is to fill up your 8x8 farm and constantly grow product while you work on the next phase. (Just a quick note :Gathering is the perfect skill to combine with Alchemy.  Gathering and Alchemy go hand in hand as about 95% of the materials you will need to make item use the Gathering vocation.  It will also making gathering item easier as once you reach 15,000 in Gathering you can make seed bundles. Trust me, you'll want those.)

 

Phase two is to get yourself a 16x16 farm, because you will be tilling those fields a lot.  To do this you need to continue the Blue Salt Brotherhood quests which can be found in Windshade in Lilyut Hills.  You may remember your quest to get the 8x8 from the public farm operator. Well behind that farm you will find more Brotherhood members who will give you a variety of quests as you level, including the trading quests which are available at level 15.  Complete these quests to get your 16x16 farm. (Hint: You will be taking trade packs around the continents for this quest.  You will need to either purchase on the AH or grow the items needed.  See this guide for exact details on what you will need for your area.

After you have your 16x16 farm place it and start loading it up with those mushrooms, thistle or Aloe.  At this point it's a bit of a grind. Loading up an 8x8 is rough, but a 16x16 may be enough to bring you to tears. I know I wanted to cry a time or two.  You can plant almost 300 seeds on a 16x16, all of which you would have to plant and harvest by hand, not the most fun thing in the world, I know. Been there, done that. If you have a guild you may want to ask if anyone already has a high Gathering proficiency so they can help you out by making seed bundles for you. You see, once your Gathering reaches 15,000 you have the opportunity to make seed bundles or maybe just purchase the bundles off the AH, if you can find them.  Seed bundles are a combination of 10 seeds and some Shatigon's Blessing 'bundled' together to make gathering easier, and believe me, we gatherers love to make our job easier.  Just a quick note: Shatigon's Blessings can only be purchased using vocation badges which are gained by using the Gathering, Farming, Logging and Husbandry vocations.  This means every time you collect your plants, chop down your trees, or work with your animals you are gaining vocation badges. These badges can be turned in for many different crafting items. Your can find the vender named 'Blue Salt Brotherhood President' in Windshade near the trade pack quest giver or, if you choose to destroy your 8x8, these can also be purchased at the Farmer's Workstation.

 

Now back to leveling the Alchemy skill! Once you have gathered your items and processed them with the Shatigon’s Knife making medicinal powder, you make now start making potions!  The fastest way to level is just to continually craft the first minor mana potion ‘Mage's Vapor'  This potion only takes 8 medicinal powder and uses 3 labor points.  Remember, labor points used = skill points gained.  All of the other started potions use 3 labor as well so making anything other than ‘Mage's Vapor'  is a waste of time and assets.  Alchemy isn’t a real money maker until you hit 10,000, which you can get to in two weeks if you really buckle down gather your little heart out. Thankfully, within those two weeks you will have gained enough vocation skill to be able to make seed bundles, making everything much easier.  I would suggest just selling your potions to a merchant as you can rarely sell them on the AH, but feel free to try.

Once you reach 10,000 in Alchemy you can start making a decent living if you can get the stabilizers required to make the oils and pigments. Get a group of friends or guildies together and take a trip across the sea for the stablizers.  One nice thing about the oils and pigments is they use 14 labor and so give 14 points to your alchemy skill. You can make these on and off for extra cash but continue to make the ‘Mage's Vapor' potions as they will level you faster than anything else.
