General Description: The Alchemist is an interesting class, and one that can be abused to some extent. After the problems with Mix in Final Fantasy X, the ability to mix items was heavily nerfed when X-2 came out. Even so, there are other uses for the Alchemist, including the ability to use some items without decreasing your own item stock (Elixirs and Mega Phoenixes among them!) and the ability to double items’ potency. If you’re wise enough to deal with the complexity of mixing items to get your desired effects, or simply can use items in lieu of single-target things from the White Mage, then the Alchemist is a great class for you to consider.
