Welcome back to another episode of Dota 2 Tips and Tricks. Here we will be talking more about hero specific tips, updated to the newest Patch 7.04. And if you missed previous editions of tricks, you can check them out here, here, and here.
Neat Antimage Blink Path
I just stumbled upon a neat AM blink pathway that is really efficient. Here is a short GIF illustrating it. It isn’t much, but can help you farm faster by getting from one creep camp to another quicker.
How to Stop Enemy Fountain from Attacking
Nature’s Prophet can actually Sprout the enemy Fountain, cutting its vision off. This is just for your average Fountain dive shenanigans at the end of the game. You’re safe for 6 seconds, and this also works for enemy towers.
Little Known Feature of Courier
Do you hate it when your teammate steals the courier to get his item as well as yours? And then you have to wait and click the courier button again when he receives his item? Well, you can actually just Shift+Click the courier delivery button, and the courier will send your items as soon as it delivers your teammates items. This way, you don’t have to keep an eye on the courier; it will just deliver when it’s done.
How to get 2 hits of Bonus Damage with Bounty Hunter’s Shadow Walk
Bounty’s Shadow Walk does 120 bonus damage when breaking invisibility with an attack. However, you can actually get 2 hits of the bonus damage, amounting to 240 bonus damage. You can already easily do this if you’re invisible and shadow walk is off cool down. Just hit, use shadow walk, and hit again. However, if you’re just man fighting someone, you can actually get the bonus damage if you hit enemies during the fade time of Shadow Walk. So that’s 120 bonus damage. But now you are invisible, so if you attack again, you deal another 120 bonus damage. It becomes second nature with a bit of practice.
