The Alchemy Set is a non-elemental staff available for Natalie in Epic Battle Fantasy 4 and 5.

Description

The Alchemy Set is a metal staff with an arrangement of beakers and potions for a head. It has generally offered average Magic Attack, Curse resistance, and the ability to apply Random status effects with Weapon-elemental skills.

Epic Battle Fantasy 4

The Alchemy Set is made of white metal, with an elaborate, crescent-shaped head that contains a glass beaker with four openings. Three of these openings lead to small tubes that attach to the head of the staff, with their tips connected to glass bottles filled with colored liquid, each of which correspond to three primary colors of light (red, blue, and green). The chemicals appears to be dripping through the tubes into the beaker, creating a white solution. Both the beaker and the bottles are sealed with a small cork.

The Alchemy Set provides an average boost to Magic Attack and a hefty MP boost. While it is noteworthy for boosting non-elemental skills and periodically applying Regen, it is unique for its ability to apply the Random status effect, letting it wreak havoc on most foes. Unfortunately, while the Alchemy Set has workable offense, Natalie has no multi-target or multi-hit weapon-elemental attacks, limiting its ability to spread statuses in spite of the slight edge obtained through countering with Spectrum.

If the player wishes to spread random statuses, having Anna use the Alchemist's Bow will have better results due to her access to Combo Shot and Arrow Rain. Regardless, the Alchemy Set is a fun weapon to use, with unique features that allow it to retain a fair bit of power despite lacking the "oomph" of most weapons or the chaotic efficiency of the Alchemist's Bow.

The Alchemy Set resists Curse, up to an immunity at Level 5.

Epic Battle Fantasy 5

The Alchemy Set is composed of a straight gray metal shaft with a boiling flask held at the top of it. The bottom of the head has two purple tubes and a small Bunsen burner, which heats the purple liquid inside the large flask. The boiling flask is sealed with a brown cork; on the other side, there is a smaller boiling flask with a magenta liquid inside. It is unclear whether the magenta fluid is intended to be a side effect of the purple liquid or being added to it.

The Alchemy Set provides an average boost to Magic Attack and a small bonus for HP and Evade. It counters attacks with Spectrum, which - like Natalie's other Weapon-elemental skills - can inflict Random status effects while debuffing the Accuracy of its targets. It also increases the strength of debuffs, making it potentially useful for a debuffer Natalie; however, the Beholding Eye tends to be a better option due to also boosting buffs alongside debuffs.

The Alchemy Set's most notable trait may be its ability to boost status-infliction chances; with the Blue Elephant and the Red Dress equipped, this gives a 3.375 multiplier to status infliction and the ability to counter with a weapon-elemental attack. The player can add the status flair of their choice to rain down a wide range of debilitating statuses, but Rainbow Blast's quality of halving status infliction rate means that it won't be effective against groups of ailment-resistant enemies.

The Alchemy Set resists Curse, Bad Luck, Weaken and Tired. All of these become an immunity at Level 5.

Equip Remix

The Alt Alchemy Set has mediocre Magic Attack, but a combination of decent HP and modest defenses makes Natalie fairly durable. Its Weapon-elemental skills can inflict Random status effects with a high chance; even higher given its innate boost to ailment infliction. Aside from that, it also powers up Natalie's buffs and debuffs, giving her strong support capabilities.

The Alt Alchemy Set resists Curse, Bad Luck, Weaken, Tired, Doom, and Instant Death. It becomes immune to all of them at Level 5.

It was also supposed to resist Weaken (by level: 20%, 40%, 60%, 80%, 100%), but the status is typed in as "weaken" instead of "weak", which has no effect. The issue is shared with the School Uniform.
