  • Change "I have X% HP" on alt-click to a bar display

    Percentages are slightly unintuitive to parse when we spend all of our time looking at HP bars.

    I suggest changing the alt-click behaviour to include coloured vbar characters:
    " I have |||||||||||||||| (67%) HP, |||||||||||||||| (50%) mana"

    Alternately you could use little HP bar icons, but the above seems easier.

    Even less intuitive to me.
    I think the real case would be showing real amounts of the stat. it would help ppl decide if their skills (like sunstrike or culling blade) can kill the enemy or their mates should be safe for same reason.

    I think it should be something like "Enemy hero Enigma has 260 (15%) HP and 450 (90%) MP"
    "I have 5 (<1%) HP and 20 (1%) MP"
    "Item Magick Stick is on cooldown (15 secs)"
