Alchemical Speed-Runner is a grandmaster combat achievement which requires the player to kill the Alchemical Hydra within 1 minute and 20 seconds.

Strategy[edit | edit source]

A twisted bow is absolutely mandatory to complete the task, due to the hydra's massive health pool and high Magic level, and dragon claws are helpful in bursting down a phase. All other weapons are too slow and won't be able to deal consistent damage.

To save a significant amount of time, it is recommended to lure the hydra to each respective chemical pool as soon as possible to reduce the time needed to wait for the carapace to weaken. The lightning phase should be skipped as fast as possible, as getting hit by one of the lightning strikes will bind the player. Likewise, it is also important to clear the fire phase as quickly as possible as getting hit by the flames causes unnecessary damage to the player and wastes time from the knockback.
