I have seen people using the courier to replenish their bottle without having to leave their lane, how do I do this?

  • Send the courier to yourself (select it and right click somewhere near your hero).
  • Drag the bottle from your inventory onto the courier.
  • Send the courier back to base.
  • Deliver the bottle back to your hero.

And don't forget that a bottle can be refilled by picking up a rune.

How do you give it to the courier though? When I try to drag it onto the courier all that happens is I get it back straight away... – FlightOfGrey Mar 29 '13 at 12:24
Alternatively you can drop the bottle on the ground, right click it with the courier and then hold SHIFT and click your hotkey to get the courier to go back to base. Just make sure you drop the bottle somewhere safe ;) I do this in the mid-lane. – Jean-Philippe Roy Mar 29 '13 at 12:34
@FlightOfGrey You must be doing it wrong. Make sure to give the bottle to the courier when it's not commanded to "give you items". Otherwise what happens is that you will give your courier the bottle before it finishes this command, thus giving you the bottle back. Also, after the courier has the bottle either manually move the courier to base or order it to using hotkeys. – Kotsu Mar 29 '13 at 16:04
@FlightOfGrey Left click and drag the Bottle to the courier. – Decency Mar 29 '13 at 21:29
Must have been what I was doing thanks Kotsu and everyone else for the tips, will give it a go when I next play a game. I don't usually play a mid hero but I got caught out the other day and realised I had no idea how to do it. So thanks. – FlightOfGrey Mar 30 '13 at 0:09
