Best Remnant 2 Alchemist Build

Juice yourself with steroids or you can trust someone who is an expert. That is why we have got the best Alchemist build in Remnant 2.

Alchemist is a support archetype that can provide the team and themselves with buffs and temporary boosts. Although temporary, the effects are pivotal in winning fights you would otherwise have lost. If you don’t want to miss your chance to be a good support who also happens to be an unkillable tank, then be sure to follow along with our guide which will explore the best Remnant 2 Alchemist Build.

Remnant 2 Spirited Artificer Alchemist Build

The Alchemist is often referred to as the Medic Archetype of Remnant 2. To unlock this Archetype, you’ll need to defeat the Bone Collector in Losomn and use the stone it drops to craft the Philosopher’s Stone in Ward 13. A singular archetype with no supporting items will not get you far in the story. This is why we have to pick items that work to complement the strengths of this build.

Best Archetype Combo

The archetypes for this Build are going to be as follows:

  • Primary Archetype: Alchemist – Spirited (Prime Perk)
  • Secondary Archetype: Engineer

The Alchemist Archetype is all about helping your teammates and yourself with the powerful buffs that enhance your combat abilities. Obviously, it is our primary archetype followed by the Engineer as our secondary archetype.

We are going to run the archetype with Spirited as the prime perk. Since the archetype is based on buffs, what would be better than having three extra buffs active? It will allow you to have three extra concoction buffs active at a given moment.

Paired with the Liquid Courage perk, the buffs and damage you deal will give you 25% more effective results. For our secondary skill, we can switch between all three based on personal preferences, but our choice would be the Elixir of Life. It is a skill that allows you to create a vapor cloud. Any ally near the cloud, will gain 5 health per second. They will also be revived if they get downed and their health gets a full bar.

For the Concoctions, you can go with the following:

  • Mudtooth’s Tonic: Increases your max health by 25.
  • Bark Extract: Gives you an additional 30 armor.
  • Dark Cider: Bumps up your health, stamina, and movement speed by 6.66%.

The Engineer class is a force to be reckoned with on its own, but when you combine it with the Alchemist, the mix becomes even deadlier.

The main reason we’re doing this is to have the turrets as our support. Pick the Vulcan because of its high damage output and decent range. Since these turrets are also considered an ally in Remnant 2, the buffs also apply to them.

Another plus of picking an Engineer is the Fortify Trait. This will make your armor 50% more effective. By the time you finish this build, we should have 80% damage reduction.

You can also pick the Challenger Archetype for its Die Hard perk which restores 100% of your health when you take fatal damage (once it’s fully upgraded.

The Summoner Archetype is another great option as its Incite and Residue Perks can effectively heal your allies. You can use the Invader Archetype whose Loophole perk adds another source of HP for you and your allies.

Using any of these Archetypes as secondaries will allow you to build a better medic build, although you will slightly lose out on the raw firepower that the Engineer provides.


Since you are mainly the support for your team, your main focus should be helping your allies. Part of helping your allies is pulling your weight as well.

This is why we recommend long-range suppressing weapons, such as the Chicago typewriter, that deal a decent amount of damage while keeping you out of harm’s way.

Coupling weapons with the Familiar weapon mod also proves extremely beneficial, as it allows you to summon a spectral being to aid you in battle. Again, for your secondary weapon, select something that has decent range and damage, like the Sorrow crossbow.

Melee Weapon

World’s Edge – Horizon Strike (Mod) and Shield Breaker (Mutator)

Although the choice of weapon for this build has been left completely open-ended, there is one weapon that is a must-have for this build: the World’s Edge sword. That is because of the Sheild Breaker Mutator.

Every time you make a melee attack, you gain a shield equivalent to 3.8% of your max health. This shield gives you an added layer of protection, and the more you hit an enemy, the more protected you are.


You need to be able to carry all the weight around without having to stop for stamina every couple of seconds. That is why you must upgrade your Endurance to the max level. Vigor will also be of great help because of the extra health.

Lastly, since you are running the Alchemist Archetype in Remnant 2, you should always go with its specific archetype – Potency. Once you have it fully upgraded, all of your consumables will now be active for twice as long as before.


We are going to go with the Void Heart relic. This build is all about survivability and tankiness. Good support is only useful until they are alive. Dead support is of use to no one. Taking care of yourself is just as crucial as taking care of your allies.

The Void Heart is going to give you an instant damage reduction of 40% over a couple of seconds and as soon as it runs out, you are going to gain 100% of your health back in less than a second. You aren’t going to die any time soon if you are using this relic.



Navigator’s Pendant: Gives you an additional 20 health and stamina. It will also bring down armor encumbrance by 10, making it slightly easier to maneuver.


The choice of ring is going to be as follows:

  • Rerouting Cable: Every time you spend 25 Stamina, you are going to get a shield of 5% of your max health. You can stack it up a couple of times.
  • Generating Band: This will give you an additional 3% health while your shield is active. Works in combination with the Rerouting Cable.
  • Ring of Robust: Grants you additional 10 health and 15 armor.
  • Fae Protector Signet: Gives you 10 more health and stamina on top of your existing limit. Also brings down the armor encumbrance by 5.


Having good armor that you can trust is crucial in a battle. If you trust your armor that it can take a hit, you won’t be hesitating when approaching an enemy. On the contrary, armor that does not go with the overall dynamic of your build won’t do you any good.

Exactly for that reason, we have decided to go with the Leto Mark II Armor set. This is a heavy armor that might weigh you down by a lot but the protection it offers is unmatched. It can take hits like nothing happened and also offers a great deal of protection against all types of status effects.
