One of the unpublished additions for Alchemists is the new, improved Alchemy Stones they are making available through the Shattered Sun Offensive. Like the current Alchemy Stone, they require Exalted reputation to purchase. Unlike the current Alchemy Stone, these new ones come in flavors that should be more complimentary to various class types. By no means do these four options cover everyone, but it should be a welcome change from the one-size-fits-all plan that exists now.
Here are the screenshots of the new Alchemist's Stone recipes:
Sorcerer's Alchemist Stone
Redeemer's Alchemist Stone
Guardian's Alchemist Stone
Assassin's Alchemist Stone
As you can see, some really nice trinkets for Alchemists. And while it's annoying to have to grind SSO rep all the way to Exalted, it's not quite as bad as the Engineers who have to be in a BT-level raiding guild to get their helm upgrade recipes. I think SSO will end up being a fairly easy rep grind compared to current factions, purely due to the large number of available quests. Feel free to leave your thoughts!
