So I am trying to understand the new crafting system for the alchemist I want to make. Can someone please help me understand this some.
If I wanted to make level 1 alchemical fire bombs, I could make up to 4 of them at a time. Each of these normally cost 3gp each, so normal price would be 12gp, I would have to invest 6gp of materials up front and at the end of 4 days I would then have to pay the remaining 6 if I managed to succeed on my craft roll.
Is this correct? For small cost items it seems such a waste of time when it would be just easier to buy them from a npc especially since you pay full price anyways.
And yes I realize if you take extra days you can reduce the remainder of the price but it seems such a waste of time for only 4 of them.
