The Alchemist Archetype: A Lesson in Transmutation


Recommended Posts

Hello, everyone, I am OmnibusOmnh. Since returning back to City of Heroes, I have had the chance to play many more powers than I ever did during the NCSoft days. I have since discovered some of these powers did not even exist at that time, and the time has come for me to introduce my idea for a new powerset as well...or rather, a new archetype. Huge thanks to @Tyrannical and @Blackfeather, and special thanks to @Monos Kingfor helping put it together and @Vanden for providing the icons. 


With inspiration from my favorite ATs, introducing...


The Alchemist


"Harness ethereal forces through the ancient science of Alchemy. Alchemists have learned transmutation, through which they erect constructs, summon projectiles, and even conjure artificial beings in their pursuit of knowledge. Combat as an Alchemists brings you closer to Magnum Opus, which will enhance your power to it's ultimate state. While most powers cost traditional endurance, more powerful abilities instead draw directly from your Opus bar." 



Archetype Icon: Read Me - Alchemy Options Docs


The alchemist is a potent caster and combatant, who uses Transmutation to fill various archetypal roles. The foundation of Transmutation is the players ability to utilize the Philosopher's Stone, the player must activate this inherent as it is pivotal to enhancing their strength, and defense in combat. Various powers are enhanced by the use of the Philosophers Stone, while others may come with a price.

Activating this inherent requires the player to completely fill-in in the Magnum Opus Bar (Opus Bar for Short) 

An Alchemist does this by generating the life-force of defeated foes and using the energy in order to convert their Prima Materia (First Matter in all existence) to complete the stone.

The Opus Bar requires the player to complete four phases in order to be selected. (Once a phase is completed it cannot be depleted normally or return to a previous phase). They are modeled after the 4 processes needed to complete the Philosopher's Stone in Traditional Alchemy. Each stage replaces the last, until finally activating the Philosopher's Stone.

  •  Decomposition (Blackening)                                                                      




The First stage in the creation of the Philosophers Stone is Decomposition. The player begins to immerse themselves in a blackened aura that deals DoT known as Decomposition. The opponents body begins to break down into simpler forms of matter used to generate to the next phase of Magnum Opus.


  •  Purification (Whitening)                                                                                                  




The Second stage in the creation of the Philosophers Stone, is Purification, it embellishes the player with a cloak of whiteness that washes away the impurities of the previous phase. It brings a light clarity to the user. This process in turn grants the player a minor heal in game for every strike that lands on a target.


  • Illumination (Yellowing)                                                                  





The Third Stage and Final of the Opus Bar is Illumination, the player begins to emit sunlit rays around their body symbolizing the dawning of the sun and the transmutation of silver to gold (near completion of the Philosopher's Stone). Foes hit by players in this stage dealt with a slow affect as their energy is harvested for the activation of your inherent. 


  • Completion (Reddening)


(Notice) You are notified that the transmutation of all your opponents Prima Materia and Energy have been harnessed to complete the Stone, The Philosophers' Stone is fully active.


  • When first activated the life-force energy of all your defeated foes condenses around the players hands 

  • Next the saturated flow of aura is reddened and begins enveloping the player filling you with the energy and anguish of your opponents enhancing your strength

Once activated by the player the Philosophers Stone a label will appear above the players head in game called PHILOSOPHERS STONE, signifying the power is in use.  The stone grants a combination of all previous buffs from the previous stages and a complete build up in strength. When the inherent is used it will persist for 2 minutes, giving the player enough time to fully unleash the harnessed energy generated from those you sacrificed.

Alchemy is performed through an ancient practice known as Transmutation, through it, the Alchemist is allowed to choose between 2 primaries sets as well as 2 secondary powersets.


Primary Sets vary from secondary sets as they contain a special 9th tier transformation that can only be activated with at least half of the Opus Bar filled. These modes contain a series of 5 separate tremendous powers, and when activated, all other powers are inactive. Recharge for each ability is long, and ignores enhancements. Rather than cost endurance, each ability will directly draw from the Opus Bar.



Alchemist Primaries

The first 5 tiers of Transmutation, features the iconic Hand Clap gesture, this stance is absent for the remaining tiers as powers beyond the 5th tier use more complex alchemy to symbolize the players experience in using Transmutation.




Transmutation Melee

Transmutation Melee allows you to manipulate the process of construction, deconstruction, and reconstruction in order to alter your surroundings and smite your foes. Certain abilities may strike awe into your opponents, confusing them for a short time.

Alchemic Summoning

Synthetics are summons of artificial life forms, genetically mutated species, and remnants of the caster themselves created from alchemy these modified life lifeforms can seemingly alter their environment and growth rate at will. Note: The Alchemist does not benefit from Supremacy as would a mastermind. Summoned minions will receive increased +Dmg and +To-Hit only while Philosopher's Stone is active. Unlike masterminds, defensive mode will not result in damage sharing.

Picture62.png.7672e76f729f4b553705e2acbf747fd9.png  Transmutation Wave

You project a torrent of of elemental energy forward beneath the target loosing their footing knocking them down and lowering their defense.


Picture63.png.771301620743f476162698383ae15e9c.png  Orgone

You access your esoteric knowledge of alchemy to preform a motion gathering the universal life force within all things, amplifying your pets strength, defense, and durability.


Picture64.png.e443993c09ffe8922293a389452052f5.png  Equivalent Exchange

Alchemy posits that something cannot be created from nothing; in order to obtain something, something of equal value must be lost. At the expense of your Magnum Opus, striking your opponent will heal friendlies for portions of their health. Depending on your progress, either an entire phase is lost or decomposition is temporarily unobtainable (if not over 40% completed). If you have activated the Philosopher's Stone, this power has no ill-effects. 

When performed, the caption EQUIVALENT EXCHANGE will appear over a target, signifying the use of the attack. The label UNOBTAINABLE will appear above the caster in combat until 1 minute has passed.


Picture69.png.51784ebd96e46c66831a04d9ce8c9ace.png Chimeras

You release two animal based hybrids nurtured to obey your command. One is dexterous and swift, whilst the other is highly resistant. Despite their crossbreed nature, chimeras tend to be loyal and protective.

The Chimera are competent fighters, and their melee attacks will have a small chance to crit. The second Chimera's abilities are essentially identical to Battle Axe, but use animations seen commonly by council robots. These powers will place bio armor on the second chimera for their brief activation.

You bring forth an omniscient creature from your essence. The imprisoned being uses its mastery of alchemy to grant defense, resistance and healing to all friendlies within a spherical range. Its presence is such that it may Entrance enemies, confusing them. The true nature of the dwarf is not one of loyalty, and will cease to be tamed under the casters command if the caster is severely wounded.

This pet will not persist after death like other additional summons, and may deactivate if the user falls beneath 5% health. This is an effect that could be done away with, however.

You summon the Sage, a being of mortal descent that possesses complete mastery over all forms of alchemy. A sage tends to predict the outcome of combat and will anoint the caster and their comrades with vast knowledge.

The Sages Farsight is different from a players version, being an auto power that is always on and being significantly weaker than the players version.

Powers Description:


Picture73.png.139d16a38fa7c24602130cdefc594327.png Refine

Your personal properties are cleansed of any potential weak spots, reducing ordinary flaws in protection. You gain minor defense to all types of damage. This power is on at all times.


Picture74.png.8db299d7547e627dc8995a6d3a0ddf12.png Vitrum Flexile

You transmute an altered form of glass known to withstand pressure and is impossible to shatter, this grants the player near perfect durability to smashing and even allows absorption to forms of damage. It is not impervious, and offers only minor lethal resistance. (Stance used)


Picture75.png.db26489f9461bc9c1d238e998f98f43b.png Mithridatium

You gain access to an ancient botanical remedy which provides the player an antidote to poison and all toxic type damage. This move also gives the player a large regeneration buff. This power is enhanced through the use of Magnum Opus to include absorb over time.


Picture76.png.739cf038e610709875abe166eccdbca6.png Stone Encasing

You are covered with an amplified type of cement known as Roman Concrete. This materials longevity and compactness allows it to remain intact through the millennia without eroding. You have resistance to both fire, cold and toxic based damages. (Stance used)


Picture77.png.ebb8fd97aa1ab3afaae76e5176417346.png Cloak of Orichalcum

From your hands you summon a golden sphere of otherworldly substance to encircle you, negating any control based effects on the caster for a short period of time and offering strong defense most effects. (Stance used)


Picture78.png.639de71ef2d1da6e1c1d7b4f47af28da.png Starlite

You are granted resistance to all energy based damage through an invisible synthetic material, capable of withstanding extreme heats emitted from stars. This power costs no endurance, and is on at all times. After reaching Magnum Opus illumination, this power will increase its strength substantially, and offer absorb over time.


Picture79.png.68e091ed28ae50ede150f13102d70fc5.png Celestial Grace

While this power is active, you are granted a superior agility form all types of ranged damage capable of deflecting and avoiding attacks from a distance. If used in groups, teammates within close range of the caster, gain full awareness of all calamities that happen in your presence. Allies can detect any threats, allowing everyone to perceive their environment more quickly. 


Picture80.png.7ff96b40042e508fca0842da1e114892.png Reanimate

Ethereal energy enhances your body to be amplified beyond ordinary capacity. Forcing your consciousness to be restored in a state of impetus. Your vigor has been revitalized, as you arise with a full burst of energy, granting temporary invulnerability and filling your Opus bar. This power can be used while alive, but will not offer invulnerability and will offer substantially less opus.


Picture81.png.4273304847e5b28f088726ee163aeea7.png Adamantine

You have shown your true mastery of alchemy by enveloping your skin with the unbreakable, nigh indestructible metal of the gods. Thought to be unobtainable by mankind, this power allows the caster absorption over time and resistance to all forms of effects, as not even the mind can restrict what is the unshakable. Wielding Adamantine is a taxing feat, and after two minutes will rapidly drain your Magnum Opus to sustain itself.

Using this power with Magnum Opus filled will offer a short lasting weaker buff to all nearby allies. 

This power can be used with your transformation abilities, but will last for a shorter duration when combined with them.

Rock Armor (Chrystal, Gray)


This Alchemy powerset draws heavily from the historic science, as well as from popular media. You might find reference to sources like eastern animation, lost technologies, and ancient various inventions. I hope to give a bit of historic trivia as well a complete powerset. Thanks again to those who helped, and let me know what you think.

Apologies for the icons on the last pet powers, they were showing previously but aren't working anymore.

Worry not, it's a glitch that corrects itself normally. Nice work!

This all seems pretty cool! My main issue is that it seems both too niche and trying to do too much at the same time. PBAoE inherant effects with ranged OR melee attacks along with Armor OR pet-focused secondary...


Also, when I think alchemy, I think of potions and chemestry and stuff. I know you SAID you took references from different places, but the reliance on FMA-style transmutation is a bit on the nose. It's like making an AT that has melee fighting with ki blasts and different from-armors and who get stronger whenenever they die, but then saying that its not just related to Dragonball Z.


Even so, this looks pretty neat, I'd love to play it! You clearly put a lot of thought and work into this, and its definitly an idea worth pursuing, imo.

Thank you, I appreciate you recognizing the fact that a lot of effort went into it, I do hope it is an idea worth pursuing.


In regards to FMA, I did reference it a bit but that's only because it's the most iconic and popular source of media, and every other power does not draw much reference to Fullmetal alchemist and actually draw directly from the archaic science itself. I tried to specify this in the descriptions, as a lot of vials, bottles, tablets, and inscriptions will be throughout the animations.

Only the first few powers are like that as a nod to show and I'm glad that you caught the reference.

I've been looking forward to the unveiling of this archetype, especially as somebody with an interest in alchemy and hermetics too!


I can see this working as a very unique EAT that has a lot of lore potential in regards to the Midnight Squad or Circle of Thorns. or even their Praetorian adjacents. You've certainly captured the stylings of a transmuter, but there's certainly more themes you could explore, like apothecary, pyrotechny, toxicology, and so on.

Perhaps having some sort of ammo-swap style mechanic could introduce them into the mix.

Absolutely, there are various lore and mystic opportunities that can be explored through enemy factions as well as provide them with new powers. As this is a new archetype, there is a possibility that the themes you propose can be added as pool powers, unique to alchemist themselves. This is also an idea I have been exploring.

It really is best to have someone proofread a large suggestion of this kind before posting it, I'm afraid.

Well done! The icons look fantastic, and I hope to see something like this added to the game. I'm a big fan of the Chrysopoeia icon.  I appreciate the references like Greek Fire and its clear that you did a lot of research for this. This would be a very cool to see in the game. Once again, well done.

I like it but all of the most direct "obviously FMA" references like "Dwarf in the flask" "equivalent exchange" have to be removed or made more ambiguous think how the OG devs introduced bank mish detectives by basing them off of TV or Movie detectives but using synonyms for their names(ex. tubbs vs basins) making them lawyer friendly.

The concept for Dwarf in the Flask is actually an existing principle for traditional alchemy, as I said we maid some references regarding FMA as it was the popular source of media. I kept it as well as Equivalent Exchange to set the tone to feel like your performing the medieval science itself.

Yeah, we try to create a fair balance between references however most of the principles in this archetypes are concept of historical alchemical practices such as the stages for magnum opus, materialization, enhanced substances etc...

It would be great to see some of these added as new Pool options, if nothing else. Pool powers can be somewhat lacking in advanced themes compared to what they could be.

Absolutely, I have already begun looking into options for new pool and epic pool powers as @Tyrannical has mentioned. Possible ideas I have been looking into were based on popular media but unique in its own right. Botanical remedies, charms and possible affects and enhancements through alchemy.


  • Abnormality (Enhancements through alchemy to provide great strength and support beyond normal capacity
  • Azothry (Expands normal alchemy doesn't require philosopher's Stone (Based of Alkahestry)
  • Automechanics machinery used to enhance physical qualities and an extension of the users body. (Inspired by automail

Many thanks I tried implementing this to the cake server In hopes of it being playable however I need to to have knowledge in coding and game files. Very glad you enjoyed it a lot of work went into this proposal.
