Enshrouded - Where To Find The Alchemist

Rescue the Alchemist so you can make potions and spells in Enshrouded.


Enshrouded lets you battle foes by focusing on melee, ranged, or spell-based combat. If you prefer the last one, then you definitely need the services of a particular NPC. Here's our guide on how to find the Alchemist in Enshrouded.

How to find the Alchemist in Enshrouded

You can find the Alchemist by heading to his specific Ancient Vault. It's further northwest of your initial base/starting point, and also directly west of the Ancient Spire - Springlands fast travel point.

How to reach the Ancient Vault - Alchemist

To reach the Enshrouded Alchemist's Ancient Vault, we recommend using the Springlands Ancient Spire (assuming you've already unlocked it as a waypoint). It offers a clear view of the surrounding countryside, and you'll be able to use the Glider to swiftly make your way to the west.

If you're going on foot, we still suggest using the Glider, except you'll do the dodge-roll exploit with it. If ever you encounter sloping paths and hills, you can jump and activate the Glider to force your character to roll, allowing you to climb up steep inclines.

Use the Glider to reach these ruins on a hilltop.

Ancient Vault - Alchemist interior

There are several scavenger enemies outside the Ancient Vault. Likewise, there are at least three inside--one is at the entrance, and two more are inside the pod chamber itself. You can either shoot them from afar if you have a bow, or you can attempt to take them out at close range with a melee weapon.

Once the coast is clear, simply interact with the glowing pod to rescue the Alchemist. Then, fast travel back to your home base. Similar to the process of rescuing the Blacksmith, you have to construct a shelter for the Alchemist. You may also place him in the same building as the Blacksmith to complete the side quest.

Eliminate the scavengers lurking in the vault.
