A profession that is towers over a Dou Qi practitioner, they can fabricate different Medical Pills and elixirs which is different in use and strength. They are rare among all Dou Qi Practitioners and are considered special because of their abilities to refine pills and for their ability to easily gather helpers (strong Dou QI Practitioners). You need to achieve abnormal criteria to become one. It is said that there needs to be a teacher through every step, but this is not always true (Xiao Yan is able to go from a Tier 5 Alchemist to Tier 8 Alchemist even though Yao Chen was imprisioned by the Hall of SOuls and was unable to teach him during this time). There are nine Tiers when Ranking Alchemists that correlate to the tier level of pill one can refine. There is a rumored Di tier, but it is speculated that one must reach the level of a Dou di Practitioner to refine such a pill. The Alchemist's qualification examination happens once every 2 years. It is said that only 1 passes the second Tiers qualification exam every 5 years. Note that this period is in the Gama Empire only, whether this is true or not for other places, it is not mentioned in both the Light Novel or the manhua. You can take the qualification exam at an Alchemist Guild.
The Ranks of most alchemists can be distinguished from the depth of color of their alchemists' Flame. Ordinary alchemists use Flames that are made from Dou Qi; these flames are faint yellow in color. As their Tiers increases, the flame color turns darker and the strength of the flame grows stronger. Before a Alchemist is reaches the level of a Dou Wang, they can only use their Dou qi Flames within a Medical Cauldron. Once they reach the level of a Dou Wang Practioner, then they can summon a Dou Qi flame outside of a medical Cauldron and out of their body to use in physical fights. This does not hold true for other types of Flames.
Alchemists can also use the Flames of Magical Beasts and the Heavenly Flames. The strength of these flames are related to the Dou Qi practitioner's Level, their level of spiritual control, the level of the individual Magical Beasts which they obtained the flame from and the power of the Bloodline of the Magical Beasts. All these factors determine the strength a practitioner's flame when using a Magical Beast Flame. Similarly, The Heavenly Flames strength is very dependent on the the users Spiritual Strength and the level they have reached as a Dou QI Practitioner. But the Ultimate level of a Heavenly Flames strength is heavily dependent on the Tiers of the Heavenly Flame.
For a person to reach a first tier Alchemist they must be able to produce a pellet pill type.
Requirments to be a Alchemist Edit
- Requirements to be a Alchemist First is that they must be of the fire attribute. And then, within the fire attribute, one must have a tiny sliver of the wood attribute to act as a catalysis in pill-refining.
- In the Dou Qi Mainland, a person’s attribute is determined by their soul. Most soul since birth will only have a single attribute. A many few have two attributes, either they are born with two attributes or can gain a second attribute through various occurrences. In order for one to become an Alchemist, they must have both Fire and wood affinity.
- The Materials they use have to be natural treasures because even the best Alchemists can’t create a god-tier pill from trash materials.
- The Alchemists must have an incredible Soul Strength; without a strong Soul, even if one meets or even exceeds the other requirements, it would be pointless to try to refine pills.

- Tiers 8 pills and above can be imbued or naturally develop a spirit. Along with this, the stronger the spirit, the higher the intelligence of the pill will be. The higher the level of the Tier (low level Tier 8, single colored Pill Lightning, versus High level Tier 8, 9 colored pill lightning, for example) the stronger the soul in the pill. 7 colored Pill Lightning pills can become pill beasts and have pill beast blood. Some of them can even fight against the creator. Rarely, Higher level tier 7 pills can contain trace amount of a spirit within them. Extremely rarely a tier 6 pill will have even a trace amount of a spirit in them.
- They are called Alchemist by the translators in the light novel. In fact, considering the original letters, the term can be define as a master of pills and herbs refining.
- Yao Lao claims that most male alchemists mix aphrodisiacs as their first independent project.
