atavian alchemist?

RokRok Member Posts: 10
I'm considering a class change from sentinel to alchemist. My current stats are str 11 , int 12, dex 14 , con 12. Anyone have recommendations on race specialisation? I'm thinking sentry or exemplar.

thanks!

    As an Atavian alchemist myself, go Sentry/Constitution. Exemplar/Strength is completely useless for Alchemist. Completely useless, 10000%.

    Con is health, which is good for all situations where you'd lose health (also known as all of PvE and PvP). Strength is useless since Alchemists do not use weapons. Dexterity is useless for literally every class except for Serpent. Intelligence is the only other relevant stat, but you'll be fine with 12.

    Go Sentry, and then pick up Robust for one of your major traits.

    I thought avoidance scaled with dexterity? So its not useless, just less relevant than CON and INT.

    It's definitely useless. The benefit is entirely negligible, and thus useless, if you're not a Serpent.

    Feel free to compare the avoidance resistance difference from a few points of dex with the difference in health and healing you get from the same amount of points of con. It's not relevant whatsoever.

    There's nothing to compare. Dexterity doesn't increase the cutting and blunt resistance that you get from Avoidance at all.

    Dexterity for a non-serpent is completely worthless unless you're getting other benefits for effective dexterity for dodge (riding, class skills such as acrobatics). Even then, it's only useful against specific classes as most classes can't be dodged at all. The resistance bonus from avoidance doesn't scale with anything except your rank in that skill.
