Improving your Dota 2 game takes lots of practice and successful execution of skills. However with little knowledge and lots of practice you can also play like a Dota 2 pro. In article below you are going to find 25 Dota 2 pro tips and tricks that once executed skillfully, can remarkably improve your game. Difficulty level of these tips and tricks ranges from beginner to advanced level.
1. Surprise Heal:
Healing Salve, bottle and mana bottles does not dispel on magical damage less than 20. So, it means if you are Pudge and using rot till level 3, you can always use bottle or healing salve. Or if you are chased by a Pudge with rot on in early game, you can use bottle, healing salve etc. Remember for Pudge, it works till level 3 rot only. Same can be done for level early levels of Maledict, Poison Gale, Poison Dagger etc… You can also find other spells with little experience.
2. The Bonus Regen:
Once you TP somewhere form your fountain, you have 3 sec fountain regeneration buff. If you have bottle and use its charges in under 3 sec, it will refill automatically. You can use these charges on any nearby allies. Also, if you see some ally TPing near you, put your empty bottle in his inventory and it will be filled immediately. You can also pass the rune , by allowing ally to collect the rune and use it, and give your bottle back.
3. Up and above:
Never take an uphill fight unless its crucial or you are securing a kill. You miss 25% of your attacks and your opponent can also play mind games with you with the help of fog of war. This is not just important for the mid-solo but more for the Tier-3 tower take down. Of course effective warding can solve this problem issue, but still you are going to miss 25% of attacks. Similarly, if you can going to take a fight with enemy position yourself in such a manner that your enemy is forced to stay at a low round.
4. Stack Away:
Luring out the neutral creeps from their camps instead of killing them and waiting for them to re-spawn is called Camp stacking. For this trick, timing is the most important for the camp stacking. Also check out another trick for camp stacking. Using this trick you can get a real gold burst. If effectively done for 1st 5 minutes, it can easily grant you almost 1000 gold in just 10 sec.
5. The Moving Man:
Always keep a Town Portal Scrolls (TP) after the laning phase. Because it is when the game shifts into tower take downs, ganks and mass rotations. TPs are a game changing item. They help you get out of sticky situations, help you get into ganks to surprise other team and it also help you get to a tower in order to save it.
6. Something Extra:
Rune control is a very sensitive aspect in the game. It is overlooked most of the times but you exercise rune control effectively you can really dominate game starting from 0 minute mark. In laning phase getting a double damage rune means that you can easily take 2 waves of creeps, or can get a kill if ganking in any other lane. No need to tell you the happiness of finding a regeneration rune after a battle.
