What Alchemist skills should I prioritize first?

I already got Rank 1 Alchemy Mastery - However, everything else is Rank F. Should I start with Battle Alchemist, or should I start with Transmutation? I do have all Alchemy Skills, as well as the AP to pin-point them.
Just need suggestions.

    Personally I think you should start with Skills that have Combat Power (CP) requirements
    I would start with Transmute Alchemy skills that have CP requirements such as Summon Golem and Rain Casting. Summon Golem doesn't give Skill CP.
    Hydra Transmutation is also a very good skill to rank early as it's pretty OP and also part of the Transmutation Talent.
    Lastly, Clay Alchemy is the last skill of the transmutation Talent that has CP requirements.
    The rest of the Transmutation skills can be done whenever, Rain Casting imo can be the biggest pain in the transmute talent, and requires a strong Water Cannon. So I think you should start with those skills.

    For Battle Alchemy Talent, these are the skills that have CP requirements: Fire Alchemy, Water Alchemy, Wind Alchemy, Flameburst, Water Cannon, Wind Blast, Life Drain, Frozen Blast, Heat Buster, and finally Shock.
    Frozen Blast's requirements can be made easier if you have an Ice Dragon, because it's freezing AOE counts towards "kill frozen enemies" requirements.
    The rest don't have CP requirements, and Sand Burst is easier the higher your CP is, so you can do that one last if you wish.

    Thank you for the lovely advice, I'll get to investing in Shock and Rain Casting however first, then go down the line as I see needed.

    Depending if you want to go into combat or utility first, I'd also recommend hydra and raincast first for utility. As for combat, flameburst, lifedrain and watercannon are all really good!

    The problem with hydra is that it counts for TRANSMUTATION talent and Not BATTLE ALCHEMY talent. Water cannon for battle alchs is basically your staple skill along with Flameburst.

    You're going to want to use Hydra alongside Water Cannon/Flameburst, though, because of the M.Def and M.Prot debuff.
