How to Complete the Alchemist Job Change Quest
Are you ready to step up your adventure in Ragnarok Online by changing your job class from that of a Merchant to an Alchemist? Alchemists are the denizens of Rune-Midgarts who strive for excellence in the field of Science. Their research is what’s most important to them. They aim for perfection in deconstructing the universe block-by-block and applying the concepts of their studies. They build on scientific knowledge in order to further the reach of civilization and end the reign of terror once and for all. Once you become an Alchemist, a world governed by the principles of science will become your playground.
Now that you’re on your way to becoming an Alchemist, there’s only one task left for you to complete and that’s passing the Alchemist Job Change Quest! Don’t fret about it because this guide will help you successfully pass the trial and finally become the Alchemist of your dreams.
Step 1: Register for the Alchemist Job Change Quest
Before you take the quest, keep in mind that your Job Level as a Merchant should be 40 or above.
To begin, simply talk to Parmry Gianino who is inside the Alchemist Guild Academy in Al De Baran (coordinates: alde_alche 27,185). The Alchemist Guild is situated on the farthest southwest corner of Al De Baran.
As part of the registration process, Parmry Gianino will require you pay 50,000 zeny as a registration fee and ask you to collect one of the following items:
- Berserk Potion x7
- Fire Arrow x500
- Mini Furnace x100
Alternatively, you can bring an Old Magicbook and a Hammer of Blacksmith instead of the required item.
Once you pay the registration fee and bring Parmry Gianino the required item, you will be allowed to take the first test.
Step 2: Take the First Test (Mathematics Problem Solving)
The first test will be conducted by Rasputin Gregory who is located on the basement floor of the Alchemist Guild (coordinates: alde_alche 175,107). He is on the lower right corner of the star-shaped basement.
Talk to Rasputin Gregory and he will give you the Mathematics Problem Solving Test. The test consists of eight (8) questions. You need to answer all 8 questions correctly on your first try in order to pass the test. If you fail it the first time, you will be given another set of questions, which will consist of eleven (11) questions. Answer 8 questions correctly for either the first set or second set of questions and you will pass the test.
Note: If your Job Level as a Merchant is 50, you can skip this test and automatically have Rasputin Gregory to direct you to the next test.
