Splits into elemental spirits with unique abilities.
For nine days Mangix fought the master of his order, both warriors swilling and striking in equal measure, until at last the elder collapsed into a drunken stupor. Having claimed the title of Brewmaster, Mangix now wanders the land as a Drunken Brawler, swinging and evading with unpredictable finesse. Under one arm he holds a great keg, and not merely for storing his Cinder Brew. Mangix drenches himself and enemies in alcohol, strengthening himself in an advanced state of inebriation based on his stance, while disorienting enemies before slamming the barrel down with a Thunder Clap. Rumor around taverns is that the Brewmaster is actually composed of Elemental Spirits, each with their own unique abilities, and should one catch him sufficiently intoxicated, one may just witness this Primal Split in action.

Bio[]

Brewmaster minimap iconMangix, the Brewmaster
▶️ "Shall we call this off and have a friendly round?"
Deep in the Wailing Mountains, in a valley beneath the Ruined City, the ancient Order of the Oyo has for centuries practiced its rites of holy reverie, communing with the spirit realm in grand festivals of drink. Born to a mother's flesh by a Celestial father, the youth known as Mangix was the first to grow up with the talents of both lineages. He trained with the greatest aesthetes of the Order, eventually earning, through diligent drunkenness, the right to challenge for the title of Brewmaster, that appellation most honored among the contemplative malt-brewing sect.

As much drinking competition as mortal combat, Mangix for nine days drank and fought the elder master. For nine nights they stumbled and whirled, chugged and struck, until at last the elder warrior collapsed into a drunken stupor, and a new Brewmaster was named. Now the new, young Brewmaster calls upon the strength of his Oyo forebears to speed his staff. When using magic, it is to his spirit ancestors that he turns. Like all Brewmasters before him, he was sent out from his people with a single mission. He wanders the land, striving toward enlightenment through drink, searching for the answer to the ancient spiritual schism. Hoping to think the single thought that will unite the spirit and physical planes again.

The Order of the Oyo's solution to all problems - another round!

  • Cinder Brew's projectiles travel at a speed of 1600.
  • Despite the visual effect, Cinder Brew does not launch a single projectile toward the center of the targeted area.
    • Instead, it launches individual projectiles on every enemy and Brewmaster within the area.
    • These projectiles are invisible and disjointable.
    • This means Cinder Brew's targets are decided upon ability cast, and not upon the visible effect reaching the targeted area.
    • It also means that enemies entering the area after the cast are not affected, while enemies leaving the area after the cast are still affected.
    • Does not affect invisible, invulnerable or hidden units.
  • The ignition damage on the affected enemy starts upon receiving a spell damage instance of magical or pure Damage types with the Cinder Brew debuff, the duration of the debuff gets extended by 3, then the ignition damage starts.
  • The damage interval is based on the debuff's duration, so it always deals 8 instances of damage. Each instance deals 10/20/30/40 (Talent 13/26/39/52) damage.
  • Successive casts onto the same units neither stack nor update its ability values, but refresh the duration instead.
    • Successive casts on an already ignited enemy refresh the ignited debuff instead. The ignition is not reset.
    • Once ignited, the damage interval does not update. The amount of intervals is hard-coded, so it continues to deal damage until the debuff expires.
  • The Cinder Brew buff duration can be also ignited when Brewmaster receives any incoming spell damage.

Requires drafting Drunken Brawler icon Drunken Brawler to be unlocked.
Mangix doesn't hold to it by rule, but he vaguely recalls an old master musing that, if one could manage, scaring up a companion was always preferable to drinking alone.

  • Summons a Brewing based on current Drunken Brawler icon Drunken Brawler Stance and current level of Primal Split icon Primal Split.
    • If either ability is not leveled, nothing happens upon cast, wasting the mana and cooldown.
    • The ability icon also changes accordingly to the current Drunken Brawler Stance.
    • The Brewling is spawned 100 range in front of Brewmaster's cast location, and its facing angle equals Brewmaster's facing angle upon cast.
    • The Brewling does not bestow any aura Brewmaster has.
  • Does not update any values of already summoned Brewlings upon leveling up the ability.
    • Casting Primal Companion replaces all existing Brewling from a previous cast, creating new ones based on the current level of Primal Split and resetting the cooldown of all Brewlings' abilities.
    • Primal Split also resets the cooldown of Primal Companion upon cast.
  • Despite the ability's tooltip, the Brewlings' abilities do not have a cooldown penalty.
    • The Brewlings are also not disarmed despite having a disarm indicator when they are outside of the penalty distance.
  • A Brewling cannot be re-summoned if it has taken player-based damage in the last seconds. Has no minimum damage threshold.
    • Damage is checked before any sort of reduction, so fully blocked damage also prevents re-summoning it.
    • The cooldown is unaffected by cooldown reduction. However, it is affected by cooldown resetting.
    • The following damage sources do not trigger the damage cooldown:
  • Does not trigger 70 seconds cooldown if Brewling was killed with Ice Blast icon Ice Blast debuff
  • This ability is not acquirable.
  • This ability is not granted as an upgrade.

Primal Split Formation

Primal Split Formation


  • The Brewlings always spawn in the same formation, forming a square formation that fits within a 100-radius circle.
    • The Brewlings face the same angle as Brewmaster upon cast.
    • Brewmaster Earth minimap icon Earth and Brewmaster Void minimap icon Void are spawned 100 range north and south Brewmaster's cast location respectively.
    • Brewmaster Fire minimap icon Fire and Brewmaster Storm minimap icon Storm are spawned 100 range east and west of Brewmaster's cast location respectively.
  • During Primal Split, Brewmaster is periodically moved to Earth's position.
    • If Earth dies, Brewmaster is moved to Storm's position; if both Earth and Storm die, he is moved to Fire; if Earth, Storm, and Fire all die, he is moved to Void.
    • In short, Brewmaster is moved according to the following sequence unless he is dead: Earth ➜ Storm ➜ Fire ➜ Void ➜ Earth.
    • This affects Brewmaster's re-appearing position when the Primal Split Cancel icon Primal Split Cancel sub-ability is used as well.
  • This Brewling priority and sequence affect the following things:
    • Earth is selected by default upon cast, and can Tab ↹ through units in the aforementioned order.
    • Every aura Brewmaster has (e.g. Gem of True Sight icon Gem of True Sight etc.) is bestowed around the current Brewling he is moved to.
    • Ability effects that interact with heroes' presence (e.g. Smoke of Deceit icon Smoke of Deceit, Blur icon Blur etc.) react on the current Brewling he is moved to.
    • During Primal Split, Brewmaster dies when all Brewlings are killed. The kill is credited to the hero who kills the last Brewling.
    • Once the duration ends, Brewmaster appears at the place of the current Brewling he is moved to.
    • Teleporting abilities (i.e. Relocate icon Relocate) cause the periodic moving of Brewmaster to get canceled, so the notes above do not apply anymore.
  • Casting Primal Split replaces all existing Brewlings from a previous cast or from a Primal Companion icon Primal Companion cast, creating new ones based on the current level and resetting the cooldown of all Brewlings' abilities.
    • Also resets the cooldown of Primal Companion upon cast.
  • Grants Drunken Brawler icon Drunken Brawler upon acquiring this ability.

  • The invisibility is lost upon reaching the cast point of abilities, or upon launching an attack.
    • This means when the attack misses, the invisibility is still lost.
  • Grants phased movement while fully invisible, and allows Storm to path through other units, including wards, but not through buildings.

Recommended Items[]

Starting items:

  • Tango icon Tango helps Brewmaster stay in lane by sustaining his health.

Early game:


Mid game:

  • Phase Boots icon Phase Boots aid his movement speed, staying close to the enemies to land more critical attacks during Drunken Brawler.
  • Magic Wand icon Magic Wand gives him bonus attributes and a good source of healing.
  • Blink Dagger icon Blink Dagger allows Brewmaster to initiate, as well as improves his low mobility.
  • Black King Bar icon Black King Bar increases survivability with strength and spell immunity so Brewmaster can actually attack enemies and slow them down prior to activating Primal Split.
  • Hand of Midas icon Hand of Midas allows Brewmaster to quickly accumulate gold and experience, working toward perfecting Primal Split.

Late game:

  • Radiance icon Radiance gives him even more damage and aura that works even during Primal Split duration.
  • Assault Cuirass icon Assault Cuirass makes Brewmaster even tankier with armor, allowing him to survive longer engagements and getting off Primal Split without needing to retreat. The aura also remains on each unit during Primal Split, boosting attack speed and armor to teammates as well; take note that the armor reduction half of the aura remains on the elemental units even though the aura icon does not appear on the enemy UI.
  • Shiva's Guard icon Shiva's Guard gives him an additional movement speed slow aside from Thunder Clap, as well as more armor for survivability; take note that the aura remains on the elemental units even though the aura icon does not appear on the enemy UI.

Situational items:

  • Bottle icon Bottle helps mid Brewmaster manage runes, as well as restore health and mana.
  • Drum of Endurance icon Drum of Endurance is a good midgame item that grants you a decent amount of health and gives you a nice boost in movement speed.
  • Vladmir's Offering icon Vladmir's Offering gives him a small boost in regeneration and armor, as well as lifesteal upon every attack, which works well together with his critical damage, helping out his survivability; the aura remains active during Primal Split.
  • Lotus Orb icon Lotus Orb provides mana, armor, and regeneration to sustain Brewmaster during fights. Echo Shell dispels debuffs from him so he can use Primal Split.
  • Linken's Sphere icon Linken's Sphere grants some attributes and regeneration, as well as blocking one key single target disable that hinders the activation of Primal Split.
  • Boots of Travel icon Boots of Travel allows Brewmaster to jump in and initiate from across the map.
  • Heart of Tarrasque icon Heart of Tarrasque increases Brewmaster's survivability with bonus strength, and the health regeneration works during Primal Split.

Trivia[]

  • Drunken Haze icon Cinder Brew's ability in 7.20 originally ignites when the target is hit with any fire-based spell, making the first and only instance of an interaction based on a specific set of abilities as well as the only mechanic where a spell's element directly affects the gameplay. This is quickly dropped staring from 7.20c where Drunken Haze icon Cinder Brew is now ignited after hitting a set number of magic damage with any spells.
