An alchemist is one who takes the alchemy profession and is a potion master. They take on the positions of vendors, trainers, apprentices and masters. Alchemists come from different races of the Horde, Alliance, or an independent faction, as well as the pandaren, yaungol, Zandalari trolls and mantid race. There are also alchemists in the Scourge.
Plants have properties that allow alchemists to re-energize and reinvigorate others through potions. They can be transmuters. Shado-Pan alchemists can create gas bombs. Some alchemists can craft an extract that will induce a vision. Potent alchemy can be used to prevent insects from infesting fields of farmlands. As such, drogbar used to trade bug sprayers to the Highmountain tauren of the Rivermane tribe.
Some chemists specialize in alchemy.

In the RPG
Many are those who know how to create the simplest items in the alchemist’s repertoire — small sticks with bits of alchemical gold that glow brighter than a torch when struck, vicious acids, and stones coated with a special dust that causes a loud explosion when struck against something solid. But these are only the basics of an elaborate and incredible art, easily as expansive as any form of spellcasting. Indeed, the simple alchemist’s fire and thunderstones are to the heights of alchemy what little cantrips are to the greatest forms of magic.
Many alchemists — at least, many alchemists who are also spellcasters — often find themselves drawn away to the “superior” art of potion-brewing. However, not all alchemists have that option. More than one skilled alchemist can cast no spells whatsoever, and many are the warriors among both the Forsaken and Night Elves who supplement their deadly skills with the heights of alchemical knowledge.
Alchemy/alchemist is a craft and profession. One can become an arcane alchemist. Potion docs work differently than basic alchemist.
