Alchemist

Many are those who know how to create the simplest items in the alchemist’s repertoire — small sticks with bits of alchemical gold that glow brighter than a torch when struck, vicious acids, and stones coated with a special dust that causes a loud explosion when struck against something solid. But these are only the basics of an elaborate and incredible art, easily as expansive as any form of spellcasting. Indeed, the simple alchemist’s fire and thunderstones are to the heights of alchemy what little cantrips are to the greatest forms of magic.

Many alchemists — at least, many alchemists who are also spellcasters — often find themselves drawn away to the “superior” art of potion-brewing. However, not all alchemists have that option. More than one skilled alchemist can cast no spells whatsoever, and many are the warriors among both the Forsaken and Night Elves who supplement their deadly skills with the heights of alchemical knowledge.[1]

Mechanical devices and steam technology are the latest attraction, leaving alchemy as "the old technology". Alchemists resent the disparaging tone that accompanies "old".[2]

In World of Warcraft, an alchemist is one who takes the alchemy profession. In the RPG, alchemy/alchemist is a craft and profession.
