  • Auto cast ON/OFF - Hold Key down.

    Everytime I play any hero with an auto cast spell it for some reason make a lot of sense if I was able to hold down my hot-key to turn the auto cast on/off.

    I feel it is a no brainer?

    Let me know what you think.

    Best regards,

    Audacious.

    Agreed, pain in the ass to have to right click the skill icon in the midst of battle.

      You could bind an autocast bind in Options -> Controls; that's what those tabs below the ability buttons are for

        autocast is bound on alt+hotkey [you can change that however]

          Yes, it is binded to alt+key, but having it autocasted only while the key is being held down is really a nice idea by me.

            I agree that this is a really good idea

              That is true, thought I can't see that because the HUD is so small that it is pratically unreadable.

              Still, my idea is intuitive and I think a lot of people would find it to be quicker in the heat of the moment?

                  The optimal solution would be to have ctrl as a modifier key, and with it set auto cast. Holding down a key isn't all that great, if you for example look at pucks 3rd skill, would feel akward to hold the key down :/

                    good idea. press and hold to enable autocast, release to disable.

                    This should be an added function; not a replacement of existing methods.

                      Definetly agree. This would be a nice function to add.
                      Even though we can bind the auto-cast keys to something we want it is quite many keys already to keep our hands on. (4-6 keys on hero, 1-6 items, attack, hold, stop)

                        Your idea is very good, but I'd rather have the double click feature, like there's already for autocast abilities.

                        Correct me if such feature is already on.

                          I would prefer another solution for Orbs: Just double- or triple-tap on the hotkey to de-/activate autocast.

                          But still, holding down the Key would be nice as well

                            How about if you were to double click the skill hot key..."Q"...for instance to turn autocast on/off. Traxex is my favortie hero and this would make using her frost arrows much more efficient.

                              Puck might be problematic to make use of that mechanic, as most "autocastable" spells need targets in order to work. Pucks Phaseshift does not need a target and therefore would be activated when I long or doublepress the phaseshift hotkey.
