Okay, Seriously! This Build Alchemist Semi-carry farmer to for you a who have a good last hit. Two levels Goblin Greed will make 'your income' for farming really looks far above normal (and unreasonable). Because when you take Power Up (Bounty) you will get 400 gold if you have Grevil's Greed.

Item Build and Gameplay

Early Game

First Items
  • Quelling Blade
  • Iron Branch
  • Tango
  • Stout Shield
Core Items
  • Phase Boots
  • Radiance
Strategy: What should you do in Early? First, select the lane, I suggest you Bottom lane (Radiant) or Top lane (Dire), you have potentially solo lane, but I suggest do not!

Without babysitter protection actually, you will be fine. Why? your STR Base quite good, and you have the skill to control the lane, Acid Spray, and Stun. Moreover your Item fairly cheap.

Get the last hit as much as possible so that your first core item faster, and after you have Ultimate Skill go Roam.

Mid Game

Items:
  • Sange and Yasha
  • Vladimir's Offering
  • Armlet of Mordiggian
  • Battle Fury
Strategy: when you have the Ultimate skill and an AOM, you're ready ganking. So find a friend to do ganking, could stunner, disabler, etc. Ask first whether he is ready or not?

Combo: First, enable Concoction, concoction soon begin to be processed, it is a sign to a friend to prepare, wait for the duration 0.5 or 1 second then throw to the target, do not force to get the maximum duration, because it can actually harm you. But if you think you can, just do it.

Once a target is hit, then use Acid Spray, Armlet and Ultimate, if you already have Medal, use it too!

Do not stop Roaming, after killing the enemy instantly find another target.


Late Game

Items:
  • Assault Cuirass
  • Heart of Tarrasque
  • Desolator
Strategy: Well, these moments are you waiting for, when you're finished, make enemies carry "stumbling" in collecting gold, they were forced to defend or follow the war.

Time for you to shine, this time your DPS must have been very Great.
  1. make sure the initiator is ready to open.
  2. Turn Concoction. You may open with concoction, but your target must be enemy Initiator.
  3. Once opened, when the duration of concoction enable, activate Chemical Rage and AOM, then GO !!
  4. Place Acid in the area that could reach all the enemy
  5. Now you just hit your enemies till they DIE.

After your team wins the war do not hesitate! PUSH!

The sacred science of Chymistry was a Darkbrew family tradition, but no Darkbrew had ever shown the kind of creativity, ambition, and recklessness of young Razzil. However, when adulthood came calling he pushed aside the family trade to try his hand at manufacturing gold through Alchemy. In an act of audacity befitting his reputation, Razzil announced he would transmute an entire mountain into gold. Following two decades of research and spending and preparation, he failed spectacularly, quickly finding himself imprisoned for the widespread destruction his experiment wrought.

Yet Razzil was never one to take a setback lightly, and sought escape to continue his research. When his new cellmate turned out to be a fierce ogre, he found just the opportunity he needed. After convincing the ogre not to eat him, Razzil set about carefully concocting a tincture for it to drink, made from the moulds and mosses growing in the prison stonework.

In a week's time, it seemed ready. When the ogre drank the potion, it flew into an unstoppable berserker rage, destroying the cell bars and exploding through walls and guards alike. They soon found themselves lost somewhere in the forest surrounding the city with a trail of wreckage in their wake and no signs of pursuit. In the tonic's afterglow, the ogre seemed serene, happy, and even eager. Resolving to work together, the pair set off to collect the materials needed to attempt Razzil's Alchemic transmutation once more.
