    The tl:dr of it: Alchemist has mayo.

    No hate, I fight mostly as alchie because it's so damn easy to manual and do well.

    Alchemist needs stupidity to lock right? That's rough.

    Did they buff BM?

    Salt or whatever is stopped by stupidity

    Deucalion has cowardly declined the challenge of Atalkez to engage in mortal combat.

    It's a bad idea to gate the ability to lock an alchemist(or any class) behind a focusable, it's a massive crutch

    It's a misunderstanding of combat to see it as requiring that focusable pre-lock. I almost never pre-stupidity'd as bard and I locked plenty of alchemists. RNG cures are RNG cures. It's only a chance of a lock break. You can just let them salt once and stupidity after. That's why the affs are more difficult to stick for random cure abilities now.

    Everyone knows that when you don't care, salt will cure something inconsequential like nausea.
    When you're wanting to finish, it'll get asthma or slickness 100% of the time.

    It’s less about the aff stack, than it is about being able to active heal with attack combo. No downside to using the active regarding offense.

    Then that's the problem, not that it's cured by stupidity. Would it make more sense for it to consume temper balance as well as EQ/BAL?

    No. It's no worse than hallelujah or shrugging and, if anything, dealing with those is far worse imo because serpent and bard have faster offenses. The suggestion was actually just rejected this past classlead round.

    @farrah they may have a slower offense but aren't Alchemists a lot harder to reset against than Serpent?

    Not in my opinion. Resetting affs as a concept is entirely different against serpent compared to alchemist, though, which may be what you mean. Against serpent, if you survive until pinshot has faded and aren't just about locked at that point, you're good to go. But I think it's more difficult to defend/cure up before that point than against alchemist.

    Resetting is also not as relevant to whether they can cure passively or not. You need to race against their offense to get a kill while their passive curing is ticking. Once you're going defensive and just trying to reset the fight, you don't care about their passives anymore.

    I prefer the kind where your pick of class is stereotyped, for example:

    Alchemist: Confused newbie wondering when they can shoot fire out of their hands and summon walls out of the ground OR A mysterious unknowable entity, cannot be sure they're even human any more. Has seen things you wouldn't believe. DO NOT TRUST THIS PLAYER. 

    Jester: Unbearable wretch of a person/Fairly decent person who looked at the names of the abilities and decided "Yes, I want to play this" OR pre-nerf Demon wrapped in human skin from recent victim, looked at the mechanics of the abilities and said "Yes, I want to play this". Post-nerf is most likely player in need of a hug. 

    MONK: Hunting class most in need of a hug. Don't feel too bad for them they had it good for a very long time. 

    That sort of thing.
