An alchemist was a craft profession. At the most basic level, anyone who mixed substances together in a liquid form to create a wanted effect could be considered an alchemist. Alchemy required a fair amount of intelligence, as well as time and materials. It could also be a very expensive pursuit.[1]

An alchemist could craft mundane substances, such as acid, alchemist fire, sunrods, tanglefoot bags and thunderstones[1], magical substances such as potions and oils,[2] and other things such as the special brews that were used in the process of creating a dracolich.

Not all alchemists were spellcasters, but many were, as spellcasting ability was needed to make magical potions.[2]

Of all the races, gnomes were best known across the Realms as alchemists.[3]
