and thanks for reading my question.
My wife and my friends play Dungeons and Dragons for around 6 months now, and since last week I decided to play too. I am dutch but emigrated to the US, and since I don't have a phone yet I can't ask my friends during most of the week for advise. They are gonna help me out but I want to do as much research as possible so we can resume our campaign quickly. We gather on Saturdays, so I'm left with plenty of days with research. I have around 6 years of WoW background, read parts of the core rules book, advanced player's guide and the secrets of the alchemist guide. I know how the game works but I do need advise on my Alchemist build, and more info about the class on how to use it's abilities.
I am jumping in the game as a lvl 5 elf Alchemist, and I want to go for the build that is displayed in the alchemist secrets guide known as "Carpet Bomber"
One thing I already trip over is the feats system, how does it work? Do I have them all, or do I need to choose? if yes, what are the rules on choosing a feat?
I know I can make 4x lvl1 elixirs a day + 2x lvl2 elixirs a day because I am lvl 5. I can make elixirs based on the formulae list, but can I use all of the formulae list up to level 5 or are there some rules I don't know about yet?
Another thing is, how many bombs can I make per day? does it work the same like the elixirs?
Last but not least, as alchemist and my crafting skill I can make potions, which I need to be in a town in to create one. Is there a complete list of potions I can create for my level?
I hope you guys can help me out with these questions, and if you have tips or documentation for me I am glad to look into it.
