DOTA – Secrets and the Basics
DOTA or it’s full official name – Defence of the Ancients is widely followed and played around the world, especially in Asia.

A free modification or mod for the popular Warcraft 3 software series from Blizzard. With such a huge following and a massive amounts of characters you can play, plenty of secrets, guides and strategy tips on DOTA have passed acorss the internet airwaves.

Here are the basics and BEST DOTA TIPS to get you really playing Defence of the Ancients well:

Tip #1 Farming for Gold in the game (Critical)

Farming nuking creeps or even neutral creeps for gold. The more enemy creeps you kill, the more gold you’ll receive. Sometimes when farming becomes difficult, player may turn to farming neutral characters for extra gold.

Tip #2 Last Hit or getting a Kill (Rude, but handy)

Be the last hero or player to hit a creep for gold. Damaging an enemy creep does not provide gold, so its beneficial for a non-ranged character to move in for a last hit to receive this benefit. This also allows you to stay out of range of the opposing team.

Making a last hit requires a feel of the timing to deal direct damage for different characters. You can get a feel of this simply by playing the game often. A good strategy is to keep the thumb on the “ALT” key so that you can readily see the life line of the creeps, and only move in to get a last hit when its life is low.

Tip #3 Hot Key, defined keyboard shortcuts for quickfire playing

Hot Key is an essential DOTA strategy. Different spells are tied to different buttons which when pressed will activate the spell. Since battles in DOTA last only a few seconds, clicking on the icons with the mouse is a little slow.

Tip #4 Mouse, get a decent one!

A mouse based game such as DOTA needs a high quality mouse. You’ll also enjoy the gaming experience more with a good mouse, skates, and mouse pad.

Tip #5 Item Build, for your hero

Having the right item build will increase the power of your character. Some characters require more health or more speed, or more mana as the game progresses. Knowing the complimentary item build for your character will increase its power and direct damage.

Tip #6 Team Play, don’t be a loner – GANK in a group.

In competitive DOTA play, its necessary to play in groups. Public DOTA Tips and Competitive DOTA strategy are different with the latter being more difficult and emphasis on team cooperation.

Tip #7 Mana Required, build up your supplies to cast spells

Always take note of the amount of mana required to cast 2 spells. 1 spell alone will normally not be sufficient to take down an opponent.

Tip #8 Item Cost, don’t waste your hard earned gold in DOTA

By understanding what items need to be built, you’ll be able to know the cost and time your return to the fountain. Less trips back to the fountain means more time in the battle field, which translates to more gold and experience for your DOTA character.
