The Goblin Alchemist is a neutral hero in Warcraft III: The Frozen Throne and was added in patch 1.17. In this unconventional pairing, a fanatical Goblin master rides on the back of his Ogre slave. Despite undergoing a series of chemical "treatments" to enforce compliance, the Ogre sometimes shows signs of independence and even outright defiance. However, these outbursts are swiftly quelled by the Goblin master, who can be like his concoctions — harsh and volatile. Though personal differences may at times distract this duo, when it comes to biological warfare and raw, brute strength, the Goblin Alchemist and his Ogre slave are truly at the top of their game!
With Healing Spray, the alchemist sprays waves of healing mist to heal units in a target area. An alchemist must be careful when using this, however, as it can just as easily heal opponents as it can allies.
With Chemical Rage, the alchemist causes his ogre to enter a chemically-induced rage, increasing movement rate by 50% and increasing attack rate, as well. As the alchemist becomes more proficient at this skill, he will attack faster. Many alchemists find this useful to use when escaping instead of attacking.
With Acid Bomb, the alchemist hurls a flask of acid at a target. The flask breaks upon impact, splashing a powerful acid on nearby hostile units. This decreases armor, and deals slightly less damage-over-time to splashed targets. It is very effective against clustered ranged units when combined with fast melee attackers such as ghouls, and is also especially useful against targets who are trying to flee.
