  • Alt + clicking on ability informs teammates

    whenever we have mana for it or if it's on cool down. When ability is ready it will say we are ready to use it. It could work for items too.

    Spell is on cooldown:
    • *Spell name* is on cooldown for *X* more seconds

    You don't have mana to use the spell:
    • I don't have mana for *spell name*
    • I need *X* more mana to use *spell name*

    You don't have mana to use the spell and it's on cooldown:
    • *Spell name* is on cooldown for *X* more seconds and I don't have mana for it

    You have mana and spell isn't on cooldown:
    • I'm ready to use *spell name*
    • I'm about to use *spell name*

    isn't this key combination already used to toggle auto-cast abilities?

    apart from that, nice idea.

      Most of those abilities have low mana cost and no/low cooldown so no reason for using it for them. But if we want to do this without breaking this correlation, it could work when Alt + mouse click on ability.

        Personally I call important cooldowns using my mic, but I suppose it could help with language barriers. Good idea.

          Very nice idea. Just need to think about other keybinding (using mouse is not very fast imo).

                I'd like to just remind to test this as well as other team-wide communication pings wether they actually work.

                Arcane Boots "Gather" message (right click arcanes, there's option to warn teammates that you are about to use them) is still visible only to the player who send said message.
