Alchemist icon.png
  • Reworked Unstable Concoction:
Razzil brews up an unstable concoction that he can throw at an enemy hero, to stun and deal damage. Once Razzil starts brewing, he can continue for up to 5 seconds. Each second of brewing will increase the potency of the concoction and make Razzil more red. After the 5 seconds, there is a small buffer window. If Razzil does not throw the concoction soon after it will blow up and Razzil himself will suffer as if he was hit by the concoction. Concoction can blow up mid air if fired too late.
Charge Duration: up to 5 seconds
Buffer Duration: 1.5
Damage: Up to 150/200/250/300 (Physical damage type)
Stun: Up to 1/2/3/4 seconds
Cooldown: 16

The longer it charges up, the more damage and stun it deals. Listed values are the maximum.
Note 1: This is hero only target spell. You cannot release it if there isn't a visible target nearby (if you don't release it on time, it explodes on you instead, damage and stunning you). After casting, it builds up for 5 seconds. There is a small buffer duration after that.
Note 2: Alchemist has a red counter that counts down from 5 on top of his head. Everyone can see this. It will be clear to the enemy when you are charging this.

Balance changes[]

Town Portal Scroll icon.png
  • Reworked mechanics
  • The casting time system for scroll teleports are now dynamic.
    • Whenever a hero teleports to an area, it causes any other teleports to that area to be delayed with extra time based on the number of heroes that teleported or are teleporting there. Each teleport leaves has memory lasts about 20 seconds for that location.
    • This does not affect teleports to the fountain area (it accounts for rough areas around shop area as well).
      • Example: First hero teleports to his tower, he takes the usual 3 seconds casting time. Then lets say the 3 other heroes teleport right after. The second one that telports after the original has a 5 second teleport time. Then 6 seconds, 7, etc.
  • Teleport location effect no longer lies to the enemies about the landing spot
  • Enemies now see the colors of the teleporting heroes
  • Increases max range on where you can choose teleport near a building from 350 to 525
  • The color of the teleport effect changes if you are in delayed teleport mode. It goes to normal once you have the standard 3 seconds left. So both sides can tell if it's a quick or a delayed teleport and time things accoringly.
