    Alchemist Chemical Rage + Illusions

    Summary:

    Alchy illusions get the bonus HP buff from Chemical Rage but not increased regeneration rate - as they should (the bonus HP regen is added to his base, not just a +xx regen)

    Repro steps:

    1) Pick alchemist and level to 16 for most noticeable effects
    2) Purchase Manta
    3) Take significant damage
    4) Use Ultimate then manta

    Result:

    Illusions heal at the PRE-ULTIMATE base rate Alchemist image regeneration.jpg

    Expected result:

    Illusions heal at the boosted rate (as in dota 1 - it is BASE regen not bonus regen)

    I want to say its working correctly, the info about illusions on playdota simply says illusions don't benefit from HP regen.

    irc that is only half true, illusions dont benifit from regen items, but still can regenerate at the base rate (and adding strength items will increase the rate ofc).
    I didnt test but Wyn-Ryder is saying that alchi ulti is part of this base rate which means that illusions should benifit from it

    As above, alchemist's ultimate adds to the base regen (mana too, hence why mana regen items i.e. sobi increase his mana regen immensely)

    I doubt anyone at valve cares about perfectly reproducing wc3 DotA balance anymore. It never was a top priority for them anyway.
