Daily Punch 9-18-18 Eye on the Prize Alchemist feat for Pathfinder Playtest

Alchemists already hit TAC, but how about a way to just barely hit a target?


You know how to pull a hit out from a miss.  If you attack a target with an alchemical item that has the bomb keyword, and your attack would have hit the target if you added the bonus equal to your level of training on Perception checks (trained equal to +0, expert equal to +1, master = +2, legendary equal to +3), then your attack does minimum damage instead of missing the target completely.
