DOTA 2 Alchemist Build Guide


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 stone work. 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

Alchemist is the real farmer in DotA. He can farms so fast that everyone will feel so poor in front of him. Like if someone have Power Threads and Battlefury, and he already have Radiance, Tarrasque, and Cuirass. But if Alchemist can’t last hits properly, he will be a poor man in the middle of millionaire :D. So the most important job for Alchemist is to farms until death tear us apart.

1. Acid Spray

Using traditional Alchemy from the Darkbrew family, Razzil concocts an acid that dissolves even the toughest metals.
Acid Spray is one of your farming abilities. You can last hits some creeps together with this skill. This skill will makes your gold run faster.

Not just that, this skill will deal some decent damage per second to the enemies in teamfights. The radius of this skill is relatively high, and can occupy almost full sceen so you can damaging conveniently to some creeps and heroes.

2. Unstable Concoction
Unstable Concoction, Dota 2 - Alchemist Build Guide
Alchemist brews up an unstable concoction that he can throw at an enemy hero, to stun and deal damage in an area around the explosion. The longer the concoction brews, the more damage it deals and the longer the stun. After 5 seconds, the brew reaches its maximum damage and stun time. However, after 7 seconds, the concoction will explode on Alchemist himself if not thrown.
MAX STUN: 1.75 / 2.5 / 3.25 / 4MAX DAMAGE: 150 / 220 / 290 / 360
A silver lining to the failure of turning a mountain into gold, this volatile solution has destructive potential.
Your skill to help you ganking enemy and chasing enemy. This skill will stun the target for a decent time if you cast it long enough, but this skill can explode if you can’t throw it in time. This skill is like double edged sword for you, so be careful to use this.

BASE BONUS GOLD: 4 / 6 / 8 / 10EXTRA BONUS GOLD: 1 / 2 / 3 / 4

This is what makes you difference from another heroes. This skill will boost your gold like no one ever achieved. You will be the millionaire in DotA. This skill will add several amount of gold for every creeps you kill. And the amount of additional gold will increase the more the creeps you kill.

Level 17-25: Stats

Why maxed Greevil’s Greed first? Your intention is to gain gold as much and as fast as possible. You need this skill to boost your gold

Why maxed Unstable Concoction before Acid Spray? This will makes you can helps team to stun enemies in early-mid game. There will be some ganks happening in early-mid game, and without this skill, you can’t do much. Actually if you want to be a fast-full farmer, Acid Spray is not bad, just coordinate with your teammates that you will not take stun in early-mid game.

Early Game
You should focus on last hitting since the most early stage of the game. Creeps is your focus. If your enemy in lane are ranged heroes, you should be more careful. Try to maintain some range and just come near creeps if there is a low HP creep. Be sure to lasthit every creep. You need to farm fast and earn gold fast and get your item fast. Usually, farming Alchemist are chasing Radiance in 25 mins or less. Radiance is a very powerful item for farming, you need this to doubling your gold quickly. Radiance is also does a decent damage in teamfights.

Mid Game
In mid game, you should continue your farm. No matter how hard the conditions are, gold is your true target. I believe Greevil’s Greed still provide some decent gold for you. More than that, Greevil Greed’s will makes your gold flow like falls. You should get your items here, in mid game. If you can succeed here in mid game and already get all your core items, it will be easier in late game. You should be owning in late game, you have the DPS and the attack speed.

Dota 2 - Alchemist Build Guide

Late Game
Late game is the time to shine. Alchemist, a carry hero, should be owning in  this stage of the game. Believe in yourself, believe in your DPS, and kill all enemies that blocking your way. Alchemist is one of the best carry, he can farms gold faster than other carries. Alchemist should outfarm another heroes, he should be the richest in the map. Dota records has already proves that, Alchemist is almost always the number one in ranking of the most gold per miute from week to another week. He has beat Furion that also has the pride of one of the best farmer in Dota. Though, Alchemist can earn gold faster than Furion. Alchemist has Goblin’s Greed that Furion doesn’t. Alchemist can earn gold more than 1000 golds per minute that is far more beyond impossibe for another hero.
So the conclusion is: Farms faster, earn items faster, Owning with better items in mid game. Outfarm enemies in mid-late game with more kills and more gold.
