When playing these heroes (not spectating), there are icons on your screen for your bear and your hero (or your other meepos). When spectating they're not there.

In game the easiest way to watch is by viewing the "Directed Camera" (if you're not watching a commentated tournament), which allows you to select all the heroes and see what items they have, what their hp/mana is, cooldowns etc.

But to look at something secondary like the spirit bear, you have to change out of directed camera mode, into free camera mode to select the bear to see what it has. Then swap back into directed camera mode after you've done that.

What would be awesome is to have an icon of the spirit bear on your screen if you select the Syllabear, or the icons of other meepos.

Many thanks! DotA 2 rocks!!!
