  • Inventory while dead

    In DotA2 you have some inventory/stash functionality, but not 100%. You can't drop items but you can move them, you can't combine recipes even if you have all the parts. You can transfer items to courier and have them drop/trade them.

    Why are there any restrictions on inventory whilst dead? Is this behavior consistent with DotA1?

    u cant use ur inventory when the hero is dead... but u can of course buy items and use "circle of power" to combine.
    pretty sure u should not be able to drop anything whilst dead.

      Well strictly speaking you could sell items from your stash while dead if you were teal (and possibly some other colours) in dota 1...

      And I have no idea why you can't drop items from your stash while dead :/ That's a bit average IMO [and you could in wc3 dota] (although the courier can still pick it up)

      And you can also get items off of your hero while dead in this way (for whatever reason --> wards on dead hero --> to stash --> to courier) if your stash is open that is

        At least allow moving items between slots, I'd like to manage my inventory while having nothing to do.
