Not leveling your ult and building solely proc items with gemini sounds like playing with an underpar carry.
I'll take a look at your replays once I have some time since I need to learn to maximize gpm and such. thanks
I can't really think of any situations where not leveling ult would work well. Gem's ult is what defines his gameplay, making him an extremely flexible hero that is difficult to shut down due to his ability to be two places at once. You have to be more careful with how you play fire and ice since the nerf, but if done right you can progress faster in farms and level than any hero in the game. This is Gem's unique advantage over other carries.
yea. if ure not going to ult get a dif hero.
unless u have sd or w.e
Ramsay Sound Pack
I would encourage you to dismiss the skeptics.
Also fyi that you can fill bottle using red wolf at founain
About the bottle, though, cool find! Whether or not I think it will be worth using is questionable, but I'll try a game out with a bottle now that I know red can fill it up.
I doubt it's worth to use a bottle with gemini since if you can take red to the well to refill it then you can just teleport him back and merge back for full hp/mp anyway. You can not use runes with fire and ice either and ganking with your main form is quite pointless regardless of which rune you get:
double damage: your damage with fire and ice is about the same as your main with double damage. Plus you will miss all the benefits of your wolves.
haste: run fast but low damage and survival. you already have the targetted leaps with fire and ice
invisibility: pointless as you would want to initiate with your twin strike from behind trees so you are already out of sight...
illusion: you don't need it to secure last hits against mid since you'll be dual farming/roaming with fire and ice already
regen: probably the only rune worth getting. saves you a fountain trip with one of the wolves
If you're playing as stat gemini you should be denying runes against the enemy mid anyway, and using a bottle means you sacrificy another item slot with no stats, which you need to stack early.

Please try and update this guide, I've been learning Gemini with this and it's been really fun so far, but kind of bummed me when I found out how outdated it is.. :l
Just a heads up: the new energizer is a pretty damn nice item for this hero as it provides cost-effective early stats along with a move speed boost that carries to the ultimate, making chasing/roaming more effective. You can think of it as a replacement for the early bracers/rings before you move to core items and it even saves you an inventory slot and plus it can be kept into lategame since the active helps so much with mobility and escaping in his normal form.
Always remember you're unique, just like everyone else.
Check my guide
Update and... just wondering... why is this guide not premium yet???
