I was just reviewing the Alchemist class, and I had a question:
They get the feat Throw Anything. The text of Throw Anything states "You receive a +1 circumstantial bonus on attack rolls made with thrown splash weapons."
Does this +1 bonus apply to the Alchemist bombs? The text for Bomb reads "Thrown bombs have a range of 20 feet and use the Throw Splash Weapon special attack."
If I'm reading that correctly, it would mean that an alchemist automatically gets a +1 to hit with his bombs from the start of the game.
Am I wrong?
Throw Anything is a feat, not an (Ex) ability.
It just grants you a +1 to-hit with thrown splash weapons, and the ability to throw improvised weapons without taking the standard -4 penalty.
All the usual rules for provoking with ranged weapons (including bombs) still apply.
