Weapons: Knife, Gun
The Chemist Job Class forms the foundation of the magician career path and has one of the most durable action ability sets of the entire group. In order to use the potions and curatives you find in the game, you must explore the Chemist class.
Like most jobs associated with the magical arts, the Chemist class suffers from reduced HP and AT strength. Although this class can use knives, its best weapon is definitely the gun, which first appears for sale in Goug Machine City near the end of Chapter Two. The gun features a long attack range and its power rivals many hand-held weapons, especially once you have acquired one of the three spell guns. On the battlefield, the Chemist is generally meant to be placed in the background, providing healing support to its allies. The Chemist’s intrinsic ability is throwing items, which it can do up to a distance of four panels. Before you throw items though, check your aim so that you have a 100 percent chance of hitting your desired target.
