- For the lore article concerning this society, see Royal Alchemy Society.
There are 100 Royal Alchemists per server. If you become a Royal Alchemist, you get the uniform, a new look for holding the cylinders, a chance to discover your own upgrades for cylinders, and many other advantages. The position of Royal Alchemist is not permanent, however, and can be lost if you do not achieve a certain amount of points per week.
How to become a Royal Alchemist
- To become a Royal Alchemist, you first need the minimum rank of at least Rank B Alchemy Mastery.
- To apply to become a Royal Alchemist, one must first talk to Sinead.
- Every Samhain (Saturday) at 12:00am PST100, the system will decide the top 100 applicants (both current and new) who will become the Royal Alchemist of the week.
- The exact formula isn't known but it is based off Alchemy Skill Ranks and from your journal list.
- The candidate pool consists of all the non-Royal Alchemists who applied and all current Royal Alchemists who obtained at least 60 activity points during the past week. From this pool, the top 100 scorers become the new Royal Alchemists for the next week.
- Note: If there is a server maintenance during the process of picking the Royal Alchemists, then the voting process is nullified and all Royal Alchemists from that week will continue to hold their titles.
- When you have passed to become a Royal Alchemist, you will receive the title automatically and will be notified via your mail. You must speak to Sinead to receive the Royal Alchemist Robe and Royal Alchemist Boots.
- You cannot dye or upgrade the Royal Alchemist Uniform and comes pre-enchanted with enchants that may only go on a Royal Alchemist Uniform.
- It is not mandatory to obtain the Royal Alchemist Uniform, however it is suggested to get it if you are going to proceed with alchemy as one of your main skills.
- You can buy another uniform set, however it will cost extra money: 200,000g for another uniform and 100,000g for another pair of boots.
- The uniform may not be mailed, traded, or placed in pet inventories, but it may be stored in the bank or the dressing room.
- Note: If you choose to quit being a Royal Alchemist, you will not be able to reapply until after the next selection process, meaning a minimum of one week losing the status.
- The uniform has 6 Defense and 4 Protection and can utilize special Enchants that greatly increase the effectiveness of Alchemy skills, most notably Fire and Water attacks.
- Royal Alchemist players may do special missions. It is recommended because the missions give points to maintain the position.
- A Royal Alchemist can help other people with certain Generation 9, 10, and 11 missions even if the mission is normally solo. This gives a large amount of points. In addition, a Royal Alchemist may use this feature to complete their own Generation missions.
- Royal Alchemists may only assist players in missions up to and including the difficulty suitable for their talent. For example, a Royal Alchemist may only assist with Hard-level missions if they have at least one talent that is Expert level or above.
- A Royal Alchemist also may not assist another Royal Alchemist with a solo mission, even if the mission allows assistance.
- When you have a Cylinder equipped, a different pose is made when the player is in normal mode.
- Royal Alchemists have a chance of discovering a list of upgrades (22 total) for cylinders when using alchemy skills.
- Upgrades, such as (Discoverer's Name)'s Water Pressure Enhancement 3, will permanently show the discoverer's name similar to Seal Stones.
- When an upgrade is discovered, a server-wide message will announce the accomplishment and the discoverer will also see a reward window indicating their accomplishment.
- A single Royal Alchemist may discover multiple upgrades.
- The chance to discover a cylinder upgrade that appears later in upgrade sequences is less than those that appear earlier.
- Until the upgrade in question is discovered by a Royal Alchemist on the server, the upgrade cannot be performed on eligible cylinders.
- Similar to how Royal Alchemists do not need to wear their special RA Title or Equipment to see the RA Cylinder Pose, discoverers do not need their RA Title or equipment.
- Upgrades can still be discovered if the discoverer places their Alchemy Crystals inside of a guard cylinder that supports Alchemy Crystal Storage.
Losing the Position
- This position is not permanent. If you get below 60 activity points, you are kicked out.
- If you fail to maintain the Royal Alchemist, you cannot wear the uniform.
- If you are still wearing the uniform after losing the position, it will be treated as "broken" and you will not get the effects of the uniform.
- However you will still retain the title as long as you don't switch to any other title. Part-Time Job Titles and Transformation Titles do not affect this.
- If you don't log in for 48 hours, you lose 1 point per two hours. Maximum 12 points are lost.
- Even if you meet the 60 activity points required to stay as a Royal Alchemist, you can still lose the position if you scored less than the top 100 applicants.
- Every Samhain (Saturday) at 12:00am PST100, the system decides who will stay as a Royal Alchemist or lose their position and be replaced by other applying Royal Alchemists.
