I'd like to start off by saying that I have never used direct pathing myself because I've never felt the need to. But nowadays when I'm trying to improve my gaming in every way possible I started thinking...
What does Direct Pathing give for an advantage over using the regular move command?
I heard that it improves your juking ability and your "skillshot abilities" but I have not confirmed this nor do I fully understand why. If I could get some help with understanding direct pathing, how it works, and what you can do with it I would be grateful.
May I even think about to replace my regular right click move command with right click direct pathing command and use a hotkey for attacking units?

Direct pathing means the hero will keep walking that way untill it hits a wall, making it easier to get right up on the edge of a clift, or get into some jungle area's.
I've never really found much use for it as the normal click works well enough for me.
Could be used for that, it makes casting AoE moves over clifts a bit easier as the hero doesn't try to walk around it when it doesn't have to.
It would be useful if you wanna hug a tree BUT OH WAIT DIRECT PATHING DOESN'T WORK ON TREES
Shawn work on pathing and stop trolling the forums - it's really irritating if you click a few pixels too far towards a tree and your hero ends up running straight into 3 enemies from a juke.
