Does medical researcher need alchemical crafting to work?

Yes, except for healer's kits.

Thank you. And just to make sure that I have everything covered. Does alchemical crafting need anything? Aside from the prerequisite of course.

No, the feat only need it's prerequisites only.

But to craft you still need the formula of the item, Alchemist's Lab or access to an equipped alchemical laboratory, at last half of the item money and a lot of downtime.

I believe a walking cauldron would be a good investment.

And I do appreciate your input in the matter.


Walking cauldron is an autonomous backpack. It doesn't change the downtime time required for craft at all.


As far as I can tell, it doesn't even count as access to an alchemical laboratory.

I would say that medical researcher replaces alchemical crafting for those few items that can be created (as named in the feat). It would be illogical to require medical researcher (medicine) and alchemical crafting to create items that could be created with alchemical crafting by itself.

You'll still need the formula and a lab to create the items, but no need for crafting or the alchemical crafting skill. A case of specific overriding general. Or otherwise to bad to be true.
