Alchemist's Challenge


Have you ever  wanted to be an alchemist?




I was playing around with potions today whilst pretending to be an alchemist, and I thought: "Man, I love roast beef sandwiches." I also thought: "Wouldn't it be cool if I could complete challenges and ascend through different ranks of alchemy?" Have you ever thought that? Probably not, but it's a cool idea anyway, right?

Here are the challenges and ranks:

Wannabe Alchemist:
Make some glass bottles.
Make a cauldron.
Get some buckets of water.
Get some gunpowder.
Get some Redstone.
Make some bookshelves.
Make a melon farm.
Get some gold.
Get some spider eyes.
Get milk.
Make some Sugar.

Alchemist-in-Training:
Make an enchanting table.
Go to the Nether.
Find a Nether Fortress.
Get some Nether Wart.
Get some Blaze Rods and Blaze Powder.
Get some Magma Cream.
Get some Glowstone Dust.


Amateur Alchemist:
Make a Brewing Stand.
Make some Glistering Melons.
Make some fermented spider eyes.
Brew an awkward potion.
Brew a mundane potion.
Brew a thick potion.

Alchemist*:
Learn the basics of potion brewing.
Enchant something with 3 levels.
Brew a potion that has an effect.
Brew a splash potion.
Try to kill a spider or cave spider with a potion of poison.
Enhance a potion with Glowstone dust.
Enhance a potion with Redstone dust.
Brew 10 potions.
Make a Nether Wart farm.
*From here you can either become a master alchemist, a dark alchemist, or a wizard.

Master Alchemist:
Brew one of each type of potion that has a positive effect.
Completely fill a large chest with glass bottles.
Make 50 brewing stands.
Brew 100 potions.
Make and fill 30 cauldrons.
Have a large room in your house dedicated to alchemy.
Kill 20 mobs using splash potions.
Memorize the potion brewing chart (found below).
Help a wannabe alchemist.
Train an alchemist-in-training.
Beat the game legitimately.

Dark Alchemist:
Brew one of every kind of negative potion.
Brew 50 negative potions.
Kill 5 players using negative splash potions on a multiplayer server.
Kill 50 mobs using splash potions.
Build an underground base.
Kill 10 players on a pvp server.

Wizard:
Enchant something to level 50.
Enchant a full set of armor with any kind of protection.
Make a castle.
Make a library with 200 bookshelves.
Earn the "Overkill" Achievement.
Enchant a bow with "Infinity"
Make an enchanting room.
Install and play with a mod that adds wizardry or magic (Such as Equivalent Exchange) and a mod that lets you write in books.

I usually shy away from alchemy in games, but it would be pretty cool if there were built in ranks. Maybe I would brew alot more...
Oh, and you seem to like bumping threads, feel free to bump mine :P

I voted for "More Ranks" and I wanted to be more specific.

I think the "More Ranks" should both branch off of and cross over between the specializations of the Alchemist branches.

EDIT: Bumping threads against forum rules. Thought you might want to know before someone reported you.

GENERATION 26: The first time you see this, copy it into your sig on any forum and add 1 to the generation. Social experiment.

Nice idea!
Also, thanks for the tip.

EDIT: Do you have any suggestions on what the special branches should be?

It's an interesting topic, but bumping your own topics is against the rules...
Regardless, this challenge looks like something I might try.

Well, I'm really tired, but I was thinking of the two alchemist branches, which could be combined for Obsessive Alchemist. Perhaps a underground base/tower combo with a secret passage between the two, whole stacks of every type of potion, rows upon rows of brewing stands, the Shelves mod to display your potion ingredients and finished work, a 'write in books' mod to scribble notes in...

That sort of thing.

Though I'd go easy on the modding, as some players would rather play without, and I wouldn't want to make a challenge like this inaccessible to them ... even though they could just not play the challenge, I guess.
