FFXIV - Disciples of Hand - Alchemist
Masters of Science and Nature, the devilish and the divine, alchemists ensure their livelihood through the transmogrification of mundane materials into wondrous wares—from curative concoctions to potent potables. Upon conducting their symphonies of commixing and combining, distilling and decocting, the impossible waxes possible, and miracles are born.
The Eorzean school only recently came to be recognized in scientific circles as a valid branch of alchemical orthodoxy. It is based on fundamental principles originating in the Near East tradition, but draws heavily upon esoteric elements of both Lalafellin herbalism and Miqo'te occultism as well.



Abilities


Abilities are actions that the Alchemist can equip to their bar and select to use at any time as long as their timer is available. Actions used in a combo will generate additional damage and effects. All Alchemist actions are exclusive to that job.

As some of the better DoH abilities are not exclusive to any specific class it is worth levelling up other DoH classes so that you can get better abilities.
