Posted in Bush Whacker 2.

Time to Get Alchrafty

Are you overwhelmed at the thought of disenchanting, crafting, and combining runes? Or perhaps you just want recognition for your prowess as an alchemist? Well the Helpful Fellow in Ellesandra's Alchemy Shop has designed the certification program for you!

If you've built the Alchemy Shop in the Commons, you can sign up for the program a day later. Once you do, he'll dish you out 63 bite-sized daily quests that gradually cover the breadth and depth that rune crafting has to offer.

The Origins of the Law of Equivalent Exchange 

Sharp-eyed players who have a love of classic anime might recognize one of Merci, the Wizard's first upgrade descriptions. It's a line taken from the famous Japanese animated comic, Fullmetal Alchemist.



If you're not familiar with the books and animated series, it centers around an alternate universe where alchemy is the most advanced scientific discipline.

Today, we know alchemy as a precursor to modern chemistry and a pseudo-scientific and philosophical movement. Specifically, alchemy is the pursuit of transforming base metals into noble metals, like gold, and the ongoing mission to find elixirs to achieve eternal life.



The quote from Merci's upgrade comes from the core philosophical proposition in Fullmetal Alchemist. Here's the full quote:

"Humankind cannot gain anything without first giving something in return. To obtain, something of equal value must be lost. That is alchemy's first law of Equivalent Exchange. In those days, we really believed that to be the world's one, and only truth."

To put it simply, you get out what you put into life.

Original Fullmetal Alchemist Intro



The Fullmetal Alchemist books themselves were a monster hit selling over 64 million copies and picking up many awards along the way. Despite lukewarm reception for the first installments, the series gathered momentum with critics citing the growing complexity as the reason it has become a fan favourite.
