Lemme start this one! I may learn a thing or two
One thing that bothers me...
They give a Chirurgeon Alchemist Breath of Life as an extract with no practical way of using it.
"A character can carefully administer a potion to an unconscious creature as a full-round action, trickling the liquid down the creature's throat. Likewise, it takes a full-round action to apply an oil to an unconscious creature."
So, unless a Chirurgeon has extract in his hand, and is already adjacent to the character-and that is if you do not charge a move action for the Alchemist to lower himself to the dying PC-there is no practical way of administering the extract-
Barring the cost of 8000+gp for a Merciful Syringe Spear filled with said extract and hurled at the dying PC for NL damage that is subsequently healed instantaneously (I am guessing that how it works)
The addition of Breath of Life text includes: "His infused curative ability applies to this extract" and yet James Jacobs himself said that the extract does not qualify for healing bomb though -as it is not specifically a CURE extract- "Ask James Jacobs Anything" thread, I'm not going to find it because reading and quoting it would simply miff me more than I am simply thinking about it
"Hear me Mr. Jacobs...I AM MIFFED!"
Now a Wasteland Blighter, if he is also a Chirurgeon gets a free Touch Injection- and yeah okay, I just answered my own gripe- Touch Injection=A worthy use of a Touch Injection extract would be to hold an extract of Breath of Life...but isn't that some sort of tax?
"Yeah, you get Breath of Life, but really you have to have Touch injection to use it.
So I guess the one thing that really bothers me is that an Chirurgeon cannot use his Breath of Life extract with Healing Bomb-even though that said extract states, once again-
"His infused curative ability applies to this extract"
Which would go along with Healing Bomb-
" A creature that takes a direct hit from a healing bomb is healed as if she had imbibed the infusion or potion used to create the bomb."
Even though Breath of Life is not technically labeled a true "CURE" spell due to a bunch of red tape B.S.
And while we're here, If a Chirurgeon is:
"An alchemist who studies anatomy and uses this knowledge to heal "
Why aren't they automatically given Healing Bomb as a bonus at second level? Grenadiers are given Precise Bomb, and a freaking martial weapon proficiency!
Thank you for listening to me! Feel free to retort and/or post your own rule gripe...I may learn a thing or twenty.
Bonus Gripe i thought of in time to re-edit: Why aren't Sacrament Alchemist's given proficiency in their deity's favored weapon...or are they?
