  • "Manually cast orbs will not draw creeps agro" Forgot the exact tip, but it's something like this.

    It should be "aggro", not "agro", double g.



      Don't focus on your KDA it's just numbers and it won't win you the game. Sometimes sacrificing your life is the best thing you can do.


      • ADVANCED: When a spell that pierces spell immunity has magical damage and hit a spell immune target, it will only give the side-effects to the target.
        UNIVERSAL: In Single Draft you will be given to choose only 3 heros, one of each attribute.
        UNIVERSAL: In Captain's Draft, each Captain bans and picks from a 27 hero pool, with 9 hero of each attribute.
        UNIVERSAL: In Ability Draft, each player chooses skills from 12 hero skills, try to make a very powerfull combination of skills!
        UNIVERSAL: In Least Played, you can select any hero except your 40 most played heros.
        UNIVERSAL: In Captain's Mode, each Captain bans and picks from the entire hero pool, except some heros that have been added or changed recently.
        ADVANCED: Check each skill interaction with spell immunity, some skills can't be blocked by spell immunity.
        BEGINNER: A 'Pusher' hero, is a hero that can take creeps or towers easily in any moment in the game.

        • "Holding Shift allows you to issue actions to be performed in a sequence."
          "Shift-clicking actions or abilities allows you to queue them."

          i think this 2 tips need to be merged since it have same mean or idea

          Beginner: First rune spawns are now both Bounty Runes that are twice as effective (50/50 gold/xp to 100/100)
          its not my idea of course,but its good to add them


          • Intermediate: Always consider having a buyback available at the later stage of the game. It can turn the tide of the match.
            Intermediate: It is better to build your hero basing on your ingame needs than on the guide.
            (i.e. if you're playing a carry against PA, you should consider acquiring MKB, even if it's not listed in the "Recommended items")
            Note to dota_tip_beginner_46: the courier will drop the Divine Rapier if killed.


            • Illusions deal 25% less damage to structures.

              That should get added.


              • A bundle of new loading screen tips have been added with New Bloom.

                Thanks everyone! Keep them coming.


                • Change the title please.

                  also you should know i cried for 5 hours when you didn't give me my cm arcana


                  • Don't forget to update the BKB one, now you can sell it, but if you sell it and buy a new one it will be the same level as the previous one , whereas if you drop it and buy a new one it will be entirely new, CD & duration reset.

                      That is not accurate, bkb duration is always the same. I don't remember when it changed
                      I guard the rear.


                      • "Dagon, Necronomicon and Diffusal Blade can be upgraded by purchasing their recipes again."

                        Add Boots of Travel to that.

                        Edit: That was quick.

                        Please, just call me buny.


                        • Something like "You should stretch between games, sitting in front of a computer for a long time isn't healthy".


                          • hello

                            where do we find the newly added tips?

                            EDIT: i thought i saw one saying playing support will teach you how to carry??? doesnt make sense I wasnt paying attention so I didnt catch it.

                            • add hint to improve map loading times

                              There should somewhere be a hint to players with long loading times: "watch an online match while queuing to improve queue time" or sth (which could imply putting players with long loading times at the back of the queue)
