I bought the alchemy tool sin the forest city (forgot the name) but I cant seem to find the alchemy guild or anywhere to get started? Where do I go and what do I do to start figuring out how to begin lvling this craft?
Also... as far as things you can craft, whats the difference between Alchemy and Botany? I'm mainly interested in healing potions...
head to the adventurers guild and talk to the person on the right at the guildleve counter. Pick up the level 1 guildleve(s) for alchemist. That will be a decent intro on crafting.
Also... if you buy muddy water from someone at the market wards (forget who..... i think on the northern market ward first person on the right as heading north)... you can use 1 muddy water and 1 fire shard to craft Distilled Water. It is a great and cheap starting recipe.

Botany is a gathering job. You gather grasses and wood, etc, used for the crafting jobs. Weaving and carpentry the most I believe, but not too sure about that. Also, check out this site for a guide on crafting:
