Rodger the Alchemist is a merchant and an alchemist.
In-gameEditNPC in Diablo III. He can be found in Act 1 (Diablo III), at the end of the bridge in Wortham Bluffs.
Rodger only sells Health Potions and a random assortment of Dyes, however he sells them at 50% of the price of other merchants.
Rodger is not a guaranteed spawn, and it can take several attempts before he will appear. Start a game (on any difficulty) at the beginning of Trailing the Coven, talk to Leah to trigger the event, and take the Wortham Chapel Cellar Waypoint. Exit Wortham through the northern gate and continue until you cross the bridge. Rodger spawns immediately at the end of the bridge, so if he is not present continue down until you activate the Checkpoint outside the Caverns of Araneae and leave the game. Rejoin and run back to the bridge to check his spawn, repeat for as long as is necessary.
