Three brand-new Seasonal Units are coming to Conqueror’s Blade: Paragons starting March 17, and the first available to unlock are as unique as they are useful: Alchemists (3-Star). To mark International Women’s Day, join us for a closer look at this all-female unit.

Historically, the field of alchemy isn’t wholly concerned with the school of healing, except for an off-shoot field of study known as spagyrics. This alchemical preparation of medicines originated in the 16th century and was spearheaded by the physician, alchemist, and philosopher Paracelsus. Combining nature and science, spagyrics are alchemically crafted to produce a highly potent medicine, perfect for quick fixes to troops on the front.

Alchemists are the second all-female unit in Conqueror’s Blade and a unique healing support class, and specialise in saving allies rather than fighting enemies. Armed with an encyclopedic knowledge of alchemy, these valiant women of the Spagyric Order of Mercy swoop in to tend to bleeding allies and apply healing effects.

In this time of uncertainty in Pays-de-la-Gloire, the members of this medical institution have volunteered their expertise to bravely heal the wounded on the battlefield. With only small knives at their disposal to protect themselves from enemies, their alchemy can be handy in other ways, such as for laying down temporary smokescreens that block foes’ vision and apply debuffs.

Devote yourself to the cause by unlocking the Alchemists via new Unit Challenges when Conqueror’s Blade: Paragons launches on March 17!
