    Also, use rockets to break channels. Which is sadly, the true purpose of using teh rockets.

    Rocket sucks. It only does 35 damage total (damage is done per missile), and only stuns for 1. A "channel breaker" spell is a way of looking at it. You are better off getting Pocket Factory first, which can really cause some pain in melee units on rushes, defending, or engaged in deadlock.

    Adds strength and bonus armor
    Makes him mechanical, peasents and other workers are now able to fix him
    Ignores all non-mechanical target spells (like holy light and stuff)
    Also gains demolish ability, which increases the amount of damage he causes to buildings.

    also the upgrades of str, armor and power of demolish are all determined by the number of points in Engineering Upgrade (should be 2 when you get Robo).

    Usually I have level 3 pocket factory for the 80 damage explosions and level 2 eng.

    Then I get robo and complete the engineering.

    It's far wiser get Eng to level 3 first. Sure you will do 20 more damage, but compared to the level 2 jump from 30 to 60 damage, it's less noticable.

    To compensate for a measely 20 damage loss, your goblins will be made faster, which allows more to attack using their normal attack, in addition to more explosions going off.

    Also, the passive is on ALL the time, meaning the extra 6 damage and 10% speed will always be useful.

    Finally, you get a huge boost when you couple the eng upgrade with the ultimate.

    It's better, trust me.

    I tried my hand at Tinker and got decent results!

    Okay okay, I was scared to play Tinker against people. But! when I did try to play Tinker I pretty much done a 2 easy comps vs me. I don't think my partner Comp helped that much.

    But I see what playing Tinker is getting at. At the moment it is my favorite Hero. I may play him more often.
