If you followed the competitive scene, you would've realized people don't get stats on Brewmaster and max Drunken Brawler by level 9 instead: this gives you an easier laning phase since having crits, evasion and an AoE nuke/slow on the same Hero is enough to win most mid matchups.

The item build is fine, though the Bottle should be first and you missed Shiva's Guard, probably the most important late game item. Also, I don't see Phase Boots on Brewmaster that often, but I've seen many players going for Power Treads recently.

I registered just to upvote this (and another) and comment (on this one only). I followed the top voted brewmaster guide and I did terrible. I followed the other guide, but they had an early leaver (for no reason) so I won't bother with how well I did. I followed this guide and I went 0/0/6 and single-handedly caused a ragequit on the other team while feeding our Mirana and Bounty Hunter several kills each. Personally I really liked the boots of travel from the other guide, but this one is way more indepth and detailed. I would say if your farm/feed can handle it you should get boots of travel. That's just from a few games exp though. I got phase boots the third game and they still worked great. Loving brewmaster after the second and third games.

Hey there,

I only registered to rate this guide, because it is very underrated. Probably due to the fact that you didn't link skills and items and it looks kinda ugly :P

Anyway, this is the only guide that emphasizes on how important it is to build Brewmaster tanky/supporty and how worthless he is to a team if he is built as DPS. Of course this is not true for situations in public games, where your carry completely fails and you have to do his job. But the other guides lead to a major misunderstanding of his primary role and might lead newbies into thinking that he is a viable carry.
I also liked how you present solutions for his mana issues, even I didn't really think about building Arcanes on him, but I tried and hell yeah it worked well.
You also don't act like there is just one definite build for him but present options in which situation to build what, depending on how well you farmed and how the game is progressing.
His playstyle during teamfights is pointed out very well, other guides didn't explain the use of the individual spirits as well as this one.

So yeah, +1 from me.
Just make this more beautiful, so others will see the genius behind this ;)
Noobs need nice pictures.
