Boost the damage inflicted by attack items!
The Alchemist's special ability increases power of attack items. The crown's earlier abilities allows the user to forge new attack items and add them in their inventory. Like traditional Chemists in the series, the Alchemist in The 4 Heroes of Light can combine two items into one. The Alchemist's strongest ability, Cast, can deal up to ten hits, provided the player has set up the Alchemist's inventory correctly.
The Alchemist has decent stat multipliers, but lacks proficiency with any type of weapon and magic. The job's special armor, Alchemist Gown, provides a 5% boost to the user's Defense, Magic Defense, Accuracy, and Magic Accuracy.

|Forge||Create items to add to inventory.||2||Topaz ×5|
|Smelt||Combine items for different effect.||3||Ruby ×2|
|Cast||Throw all the attack items the character carries at the foe.||4||Topaz ×7|
The Smelt command allows the player to combine two items to create a new item. The following chart shows the results for the Smelt command.
The damage formula for calculating damage done by Smelt is as follows:
- Damage = 100 x Element Factor x Smelt Damage Multiplier x random factor (a number between 1.0 and 1.25)
