The more we delve into Remnant 2, the more secrets we discover. From armour sets and weapons to puzzles and even secret Archetypes, Gunfire Games’ 3rd-person adventure is heaving with things to find and conundrums to solve. Speaking of Archetypes, how would you like to know how to unlock the Alchemist Archetype in Remnant 2? Read on for the complete guide.
Remnant 2 | How to find the Alchemist Archetype
This one is not only well-hidden; it’s also bloody scary when it happens. In order to find the item you need to unlock the Alchemist class, you need to be in Morrow Parish, in Losomn: Dran. We’ve heard of it happening elsewhere, but in our experience Morrow Parish was where it occurred.
Periodically, you’ll come across huge werewolf-like creatures fighting the Dran in the streets. When you damage them enough, they run away and disappear through small drain culverts with bent bars. If you go up to one of those, there’s a good chance one of the beasts will snatch you and pull you through. When it happens you’ll wake up on a pile of bones and the beast will be lurking nearby.
Kill it, and it will drop an item called a Mysterious Stone. Now take that to Wallace in Ward 13 and swap it for the Philosopher’s Stone. It’ll cost you 1500 scrap and 10 Lumenite Crystals.
What is the Alchemist Archetype?
Like the Medic, the Alchemist is designed for support and works great in a group or alongside a heavy damage Archetype like Hunter or Challenger. It’s skills focus on Vials, which can be smashed to impart buffs. It also comes with the Potency Trait Card that increases consumable duration.
It has some intriguing effects on things like Concoctions, Relic use and other chemical-based mechanics. We’ve listed its skills and perks below:

Alchemist can have 1 additional Concotion buff active.
