I just leave everything at the default settings, you get use to them after awhile.
MIDDLE MOUSE BUTTON - select hero (double click to select and center)
WASD - camera movement with fastest scrolling speed set in options (I don't use mouse for camera movement)
123456 - use inventory slot 123456
Q - attack command (to deny)
ERFC - use ability 1234
alt + ERFC - toggle ability 1234 (for toggling orbs and abilities like Bubbles' Take Cover)
X - open and close the shop
TAB - select courier (but do not center it)
SPACE - stop and hold
T - hold
G - select and center next owned unit
V - next attack modifier
N - all chat
B - taunt
ENTER - team chat
ctrl + F1-F4 - (save) call selection 1234
considering I don't use B (taunt) and T (hold), I might again change my keybinds around.

althought it's a matter of taste and habit, I think that technically speaking using the keys for camera movement should be a bit more efficient because in certain situations you do not have to move the mouse around to scroll the screen and then back to click the target. so with keys for camera you can be a bit faster and more precise when targeting the enemy with the mouse.
it'd be interesting to see some statistics about what percentage of people use mouse and what percentage use keys for camera movement. I guess that most use mouse.
Is there a way to enable the old spelldescription as it is possible for the old shop.
Since console => cg_usenewshop2 false brings back the old shop - is there a command to bring back old spell description?
Thanks in advance
You can disassemble your items at base in your stash.
Now that you guys mention it, at times scroling with the mouse arround rly
costs a bit of time when you need to realign the mouse where you want it to.
Any more suggestions ^^?
Level up abilities to Alt+QWER.
If you're playing a hero with minions set control groups for F2-F4 and F1 is your hero by default.
Works well for me.

"There is no teacher but the enemy. No one but the enemy will ever tell you what the enemy is going to do. No one but the enemy will ever teach you how to destroy and conquer. Only the enemy shows you where you are weak. Only the enemy tells you where he is strong. And the only rules of the game are what you can do to him and what you can stop him from doing to you."
hey, a question about activated items
are there hot keys for items to use them quickly instead of clicking on them?
if there arent is there a way to set it up? thanks in advance
By default they have hot keys of alt+q/w/r for the top row and alt+a/s/d for the bottom row.
You can change them in the option -> controls menu.
They are activate inventory 1 - 6 with the position of the interface to the number of the slot looking like this.
1 2 3 4 5 6
How do you counter Armadon?
Eventually, how should you play against Arma?
I find that unless the other player doesn't level spines or something, I am never able to win a lane against armadon. Extremely tough to kill, high damage output (at least early/mid game) and slow (good for both ganking and escaping).
Against armadon, a mana battery/power supply is a MUST, and to cut down his damage, you should try to stay out of his spine AoE when you have spines charges stacked on you. If you can do those, you should be fine.
But you will most likely loose the lane. Not very heavily, but due to him being able to use spines pretty much all the time, you will have to stay very defensive, aka getting fewer creep kills.
Is there no way to outright win the lane against armadon? Provided that he doesn't suck completely arse
They chance to proc will increase with diminishing returns.
If you have multiple max level riftshards the chance of proc can be worked out with this:
with n being the number of riftshards.Code:1-(0.8)^n
1 Riftshard: 20% chance
2 Riftshard: 36% chance
3 Riftshard: 48.8% chance
4 Riftshard: 59.04% chance

hey, how much damage does each point of armor/magic armor block
and how much armor/magic armor do we start with
thanks in advance
I am playing Magmus against Flint. Flint uses his ultimate.
If I use steambath during the channel time : Monney Shot is just canceled, no cooldown (he can recast immediatly) and Flint keeps his mana ? or Monney Shot is wasted (cd, mana lost...) ?
If he's not wasted and he can recast immediatly, is it possible to steambath after the shot and before the hit to disjoint ?
