~ Faster Throwing upgrade description


Faster Throwing is the 1st upgrade of Path 3 (2nd upgrade of Path 3 prior to Version 21.0) for the Alchemist. As stated in its name, it allows the Alchemist to throw acid and potions 25% faster.

It costs $550 on Easy, $650 on Medium, $700 on Hard, and $780 on Impoppable.

Strategy[edit | edit source]

For a simple upgrade, Faster Throwing is a powerful upgrade for the Alchemist. Instead of just being an offensive boost akin to most of the other tier 1 and 2 upgrades, this upgrade allows for the increased throwing of acid and potions, allowing for more powerful upgrades to be pumped out faster. Hence, Acidic Mixture Dip, Berserker Brew and Stronger Stimulant can be applied to more towers and allows them to be more consistently empowered at a time, allowing for the Alchemist to increase in performance quite dramatically when following Path 1. For example, a 4/0/2 Alchemist with Jungle Drums can reliably buff 3 towers within its range as opposed to 2.

In combination with Path 2, it can also stand its grounds against a larger splash by being able to become further upgraded to Acid Pool, now themselves applying Unstable Concoction to MOABs. On top of a greater fire rate, it very much rivals a greater area of effect in practice.
