Acid Bomb is like a Drunken Haze that works in a circle, with a dash of Howl of Terror and the aftereffects of Rain of Fire. The bomb targets a single unit, and the effects are felt by all units in the surrounding area. Don't rely on this spell for kills -- just use it to incapacitate armies. Acid Bomb always costs 75 mana and has the same duration on both heroes and units. Although it looks weak , at lvl 6, it can be as deadly as any other AoE skill .

Chemical Rage converts your Alchemist into a bloodlusted fighting machine for 20 seconds, and it's cheap enough to use whenever available. Having this spell means you don't have to worry too much about Agility items, and it works great with a Mask of Death. The big problem is that the Alchemist tends to crumple easily on the front line so you really need to commit to items that will keep him alive if you use this skill as a mainstay. Please remember that you give a slightly higher bounty if killed in this form. Chemical Rage always costs 25 mana and lasts for 20 seconds.

|3||-1.0 sec attack cooldown||26 secs|
|4||-1.25 secs attack cooldown||24 secs|
|5||-1.5 secs attack cooldown||22 secs|
|6||-1.75 secs attack cooldown||20 secs|
Transmute is the reason most people choose Alchemist these days, and it's not a particularly compelling one. With one cast, you can turn a single non-hero unit into gold. With a little experimentation, you'll be able to figure out the most cost-effective ways to use this spell, but just remember that higher Tiers generally give more money than lower tiers.
The amount you get back from a unit is determined by the Gold Cost and you also receive the normal random bounty for killing the unit. For example, a Crypt Fiend costs 200 gold and gives 27-41 gold bounty upon death. If you Transmute this unit with Level 2 Transmute, you will get the random bounty as usual, plus 400 gold.
You can also use Transmute on Creeps from the Creep Shop. For Creeps, the Transmute Factor is equal to the cost of the creep, so casting Level 3 Transmute on a 300 gold Demolisher will return 900 gold! Transmute does not return any gold for summons.
|1||1x Gold Cost for level 5 and below||45 secs||175 mana|
|2||2x Gold Cost for level 6 and below||60 secs||275 mana|
|3||3x Gold Cost for level 7 and below||75 secs||375 mana|
