that is hardcore Dota 1 right there. nobody calls alchemist razzil nowadays.

and yeah, bane is very difficult to deal with due to him sleeping you as well as sleeping himself.

Your alchemist guide is the best on this site but you should update it for 6.79. Professional players are picking up more items with strength to counter the loss of HP on Chemical Rage. Loda's build recently went something like this: (midas) > phase > armlet > assault cuirass > sange & yasha > heart. Should be noted he was getting a lot of his damage from Magnus Empower and vlads + packleader aura from Doom Bringer, so he was able to beef up instead.

I also think shadow blade should be considered more of a situational pick up now with its increased cooldown. There are still plenty of games where you can grab it (especially in normal tier pubs) but armlet is really cost efficient and also allows you to fight if you won't have 20+ minutes to farm big items.

You should also add build tabs for support and mid alchemist. He is a versatile hero and doesn't need to always be the hard carry. This is why you see him picked up early on in drafts so he does not give away your lanes as he can be mid / support / carry. Go read some of the Alchemist guides over on PD. Although dated, they do a much better job of explaining the mindset of what you can do with Alchemist. He doesn't have to be the pigeon-holed ricing goblin's greed carry. Versatility is one of his greatest strengths.

Remarkable guide. The short videos are a nice addition. Only thing missing is a steam ingame-guide.

That is very true, but I explained in several sections on how to behave when challenged or in a common pub game. The builds still work, early shadow blade is always nice, go into AC, mjollnir OR deso.

--> Abyssal, Monkey, Deadalus, Heart choose what you need the most, I even explained when to get which items depending on farm. I might have not gone into detail about pubs but that is not the general purpose of this guide.

I might add a self - explanatory. Pub - Build to get what I am trying to say without reading the guide as a whole. Not gonna quote anything, now.

I give it a thought. Not sure.

Extremely good guide, but go more into detail about the non-freefarming games, as that's what most pubs are like, and most of the people who need the guides are pub players.
