Alchemist has armor sets primarily dedicated to wizards, tricksters, and healers. Those are classes and skill trees enshrouded that will prefer and highly benefit from the heavy armors he offers. Those playstyles engage in range spellcasting combat, emphasizing bonuses to additional mana (spirit) and intelligence rather than focusing on protection. In summary, if you use staff or wand, use primarily blue skill trees, or want to deal fantastic magic damage, you should consider one of the alchemist-crafted armor sets in Enshrouded.

However, Battlemage, which is considered a “mage class,” and skills and class are on the blue side of the skill tree, will typically wear heavy armor made by the blacksmith. Battlemage is a unique type of class with both defensive and offensive capabilities. They use heavy armor and shields for extra protection and pair them with healing skills or staff charges. Then, when attacked, swap to offensive weapons, for example, a hand or a staff.

Remember: If you struggle with survival, you can use higher protection armor from the blacksmith, healing skills, and healing staff charges.
