Sometimes (yes I know this might sound weird), you simply can't afford to spend time saving up for the 600 gold Bottle and you need consumable regen before you get Blood Chalice.
Blood Chalice comes in 150g, 150g and 350g pieces so it's pretty manageable compared to Bottle.

Look for my highlighted text (important information) and grey text (interesting but not required information).
i agree, the build up on chalice makes it convenient.
especially if you start off with items like:
wards/courier + mark of the novice + crushing claws + runes. i think thats 590 gold, which means you can finish your chalice on the sidelane or send your trinket on the monkey.
Awsm guide, gonna play Andro asap now.
Lil catch at Justification on Tri-Lane SkillBuild:
"Taken whenever it's possible (6 ? 11 ? 16)."
Replace ? with -
I think u should add andro+hammerstorm as a good lane combo. They both have long stuns at level one and can get kills in their lane very early. After owning so hard early game with this combo ive been able to carry pretty hard with andro by getting items like ghost marchers/frostburn/wingbow/geobane/savage mace. While still keeping up on the wards of course.
Sexy format, thanks for the effort.
All of your replays are out-of-date (not on the site anymore), please re-upload or replace. And IMO, the runes section is completely unnecessary, it tells me nothing about how to play Andromeda, just what runes do.
Andromeda/Gladiator is a strong lane, in my lowly opinion. Gladiator is guaranteed a pitfall hit after your Comet, and your aura makes his whip better. Having 2 displacement spells will also be fun later on.

Andromeda + Myrmidon = Sick.
Carp + Weed -> Stun + Aurora and Autoattacks = Kill everytime.
Stun -> Weed -> Carp
Autoattacks + Aurora = KILL KILL
I always got chalice before, but with the removal of the health regen, is it still worth getting? Mana Battery -> Bottle seems to be the only other choice at this point.
I think I gonna have to reactivate my mass Andro play and test out some lanes with the new heroes. In addition to the Chalice nerf I will make some adjustments soon.
Thanks a lot guys
I'm not sure if the replay problem will ever be fixed on this site.. I would advise keeping all your replays downloaded on your computer, and if HoN's download expires, re-upload it to something like mediafire.
runes dont spawn at 0:00 anymore
Also, indent your body text please
something about those runes.... they look so tasty...
Sick guide! I always go the tri-lane build no matter what really. The only situation I don't is if I'm trolling and attempting to carry.
Recently made a sick getaway from a 5 man by taking an illusion rune, getting railed by a few spells all while sending my spare illusion up the cliff to promptly swap away. My proudest moment while playing this hero
Edit: Match I.D: 94520095 @ 17:10 in. If anyone else wants to bask in my glory haha. My opponents probably could of gotten the kill had witch not stacked his disables.
