Actually, my skills are still aligned. I wanted to replace familiar recovery(a non-combat skill) with Sprinting(which would have made 3 combat skills and no no-combat.) So I am asking if I could replace Familiar Recovery with Alchemy, seein as I misinterpreted the former.
Nope, right now familiar recovery does nothing… until you manage to get a familiar (pet) which you can't get unless SD and I say so. Familiar recovery does make the chance higher of getting one. Familiar recovery is a skill to recover your familiar when he's running out of HP~
