    • Visual Indicators: the ones that can't be dispeled.
      F.I. SpiritBreaker's Charge of Darkness, Shadow Blade's Shadow Walk...
    • Auras: From allies and enemies.
      F.I. Skeleton King's Vampiric Aura, Ring of Basilius' Mana and Armor auras...

      Sounds good to me, or just distinguish them visually and group them together. Either way, some better organization of them would be nice.

        For example auras icon in status bar should have slightly glowing golden contour. purgable should remain green contoured. Unpurgable non-aura buff icons should have some another contour. And of course as u said they could be groupped - first always auras, then upurgable, then purgable.

          Currently positive buffs are green outlined and negative bufffs are red outlined, except auras that only have the gray outline by default.
          I think that auras should also have the green or red differentation.

                  If SB is charging at you and you already know that a visual indicator should appear in your status bar then this doesn't teach you anything, it only makes it easier and more organized. And if you didn't know then this suggestion wouldn't help you.

                  I think that a Sven player should have a way to know inside the game that his God's Strenght is not purgeable, why should he be forced to search or test it? It's up to the player to look for that information, but the point is why couldn't that be facilitated inside the game?

                  The shop system that shows which items upgrade into others are the same case, it just makes learning easier.

                    I don't care that the items are all lumped into the same row. I just wish it ordered or coloured them in such a way that you can look to a certain section of the row or spot the colours to see which ones are auras/buffs/debuffs so you can make quicker and more educated moves in combat. As it stands right now, that stuff is kind of puzzling.

                    My Suggestion:
                    Green = Buffs
                    Red = Debuffs
                    Blue = Positive Auras
                    Purple = Negative Auras

                    Why blue and purple?
                    Two words: Assault Cuirass.
                    It has 2 icons for a positive buff, the attack speed and the armor buff. But this same armor, if worn by the other team also provides a negative buff. That makes 3 auras with the same icon and border in this row and that makes it much trickier to pick out.

                    Edit: This should also probably be moved to Hero HUD forum.
                    It appears that the assault cuirass no longer has two postive buffs.

                      Its true that status bar is really chaotic now, but i don't your solution is gonna help that much. I think negative debuffs should be in the left corner and positive ones in the right corner (cuz they are less important)
