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

Description

In EBF4 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.

In EBF5 the Alchemy Set is composed of gray metal shaft with a boiling flask held at the top of it. Below the boiling flask there is a 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 another 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 typically focuses on Natalie's supportive capabilities. While its function remains the same in both games, how it does so varies.

In EBF4, the Alchemy Set provides an average boost to Magic Attack and a hefty MP boost. While it is noteworthy for boosting Non-elemental attacks and periodically applying Regen, it is unique for its ability to apply the Random Status effect, which means it can wreak havoc on most foes. Unfortunately, while the Alchemy Set has workable offense, Natalie can only hit once per attack with her Weapon-elemental attacks, meaning that she cannot use the Alchemy Set to efficiently spread status conditions. This is somewhat remedied by the ability to counter attacks with Spectrum, but if the player wishes to specifically spread statuses then the Alchemist's Bow will be a more useful choice due to Anna's access to multi-hit weapon-elemental attacks in the form of Combo Shot and Arrow Rain. Regardless, the Alchemy Set is a fun weapon to use and although it lacks the oomph of most weapons or the efficiency of the Alchemist's Bow, one can still find quite a bit of enjoyment and power in the Alchemy Set's unique features.

In EBF5, the Alchemy Set provides an average boost to Magic Attack and a small bonus for HP. The Alchemy Set's EBF5 incarnation has more skill in the support area. It still is notable for its Random Status infliction and Spectrum counter, but unfortunately these are less useful due to the addition of positive status effects into the list of potentially inflicted statuses. The Alchemy Set both increases the chance of status effects landing and also empowers debuff skills, allowing Natalie to more efficiently fill a supporting role.

A more unorthodox use for the Alchemy Set is to capitalize on its ability to counter with Spectrum (and status infliction boost in EBF5) to allow for general status spread; with the right flair equipped, the Alchemy Set can counter with a skill that applies the flair's status, allowing for passive spreading of that status condition.

The Alchemy Set resists Curse in both games. In EBF5, it also resists Bad Luck. Both of these become immunities at level 5 in either game.

The Alchemy Set is supposed to resist Weaken (and Tired in EBF5), both of which become immunities at level 5 but cannot due to a coding error. This is expected to be fixed eventually in EBF5.

As in EBF4, it still has a "weaken" resistance instead of "weak", which is expected to get fixed soon, making it resist Weaken and Tired, up to an immunity.

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 female armor.
