(6.84) ALCHEMIST Aghanim Strategy

What kind of build this is?

Ah, sit down, my friends. Welcome to the beautiful 6.84 Alch build. I'm pretty sure a few people have made this already, but with a deluxe twist, I'm here to give you a few tips.

Let's get ready to meta!

This build is personally one of the oddest ones out there. While Alchemist is designed to be a late game carry, this build hinders him quite a bit. However, the trade off is enormous.

I've used this build about 3-4 times and it's extraordinary.

Remember: it's never ogre.


Stout Shield, Ring of Protection, and Quelling Blade are perfect for jungling. And last hitting. And protect you from attacks a bit. But a level 1 Alchemist jungle is a huge no-no. It's a tough job. Having Chemical Rage gets the job done. The three items equal to a grand total of 625. The starting gold.

Level Greevil's Greed first. It makes the Bounty Rune worth 4x as more. You get 400 gold from the rune if you do. Get Gloves of Haste that will build into a Hands of Midas.

Basically, you rush Aghanim's Scepter for your teammates. I've been in a game where I've built 5 Aghs. It helps your side especially with all the new upgrades.

Note: While some heroes may not have an Aghanim's Scepter upgrade, they still can obtain the stats bonus.

Jungling Path

Here's a small map consisted of the route and where Acid Spray should be used. Try to get both camps drenched in the chemicals and use your trusty Quelling Blade to help you out. As you're jungling, get to the rune spots at each even minute mark to get a hefty 400-500 bonus gold.

At least by the 13th minute mark, you're ready to farm.

Using the route and Acid Spray routes above, maximize and gain momentum. You'll be getting torrents of gold. While farming, send the courier to the Secret Shop and pick up a Point Booster. Deliver it to your hero to help you farm 3000 more gold. Once you get the 3 other items, tell your bae to come to the jungle. There, the magic happens.

Now rinse, and repeat.

To be continued.

If you're reading this bit, 6.84 just came out today.
I'll have more information on laning and more in-depth material soon.
