To summarize, the Alchemy Craft mod adds new dimensions of smithing, brewing and crafting to Minecraft. But besides that, it even brings some new magical effects and spells to the Minecraft; spells which were heretofore unseen and unheard of in Mojang’s hit game. Not only does this mod let the user forge their own unique pieces of armor, but it also lets them use magical imprints to enhance that armor with special effects. This is actually very similar to the way enchanting works in Minecraft, so it is an easy element to pick up and run with if you have enchanted items previously.
Before getting into any specifics though, it’s only fair to mention that the Alchemy Craft mod is still just a work in progress. It isn’t finished, not by a long shot, so there are many things which have yet to be implemented, and some things which have been added to the game but don’t function as intended just yet. Some of the aspects which have been successfully added already include the forge and smithing equipment like anvil and hammer, as well as a universal tool which can harvest any block at all, except the operation (mining, digging, chopping, etc.) costs more durability to perform.
Unlike in vanilla Minecraft where you could make a suit of armor by filling a crafting table with the appropriate leather or ingots, making gear with the Alchemy Craft mod is a bit more involved. You must first craft the individual plates and linkages like screws and chain bits which you would use to craft the armor in the first place. Then these can be combined in a number of ways to give you a wide variety of unique armor pieces. It’s a great new take on a classic part of Minecraft that makes the game more exciting without breaking it.
