  • [Suggestion] Dota 2 Delayed Cast time (Channeling) Bar

    In Dota 2 when you channel a spell there is a visual indicator telling you the spell is channeling.



    Well why not make that visual indicator also for spells with delayed cast times (that is a different color from the channeling one). It would help new players alot as most experience players already know that Nature's Prophet's Teleportation takes 3 seconds and etc.

    Good idea, I guess this applies to SF too. But make it optional, in case someone doesn't want this.

      It'd have to look different from the current Channeling one, because new players need to quickly learn that can be stun-cancelled and what can't.

          This would definitely help newer players with things like Sniper or Sand King ultis. I don't see why not.

            Problem is most skills have cast time in the form of cast animation of the hero.
            If you don't have an intelligent reply for me, don't bother I will shred your non sense to pieces.

              I know that, skills like leshrac stun have a long animation but never the less its not really channeling, which skills Sniper, NP, SF have. There skills is pretty much channeling except you can cancel it before the skill effect happens and still keep the CD and mana cost.
