Smartly using smart casting
when I browse to League of Legends forums I see a lot of guys playing with "Smartcast". What is this? Can someone explain me this and how can I use it?
smartcasted skills are used right away the moment you press the skill key without the need to click the mouse additionally
you can use it either with shift+skillkey or change the key in the key bindings
Smart cast allows your champion to use a spell just by clicking on the skill button.
Whomever your mouse is highlighting the spell will be cast on.
Where ever your mouse is pointing your skill will be cast on that spot.
Skill shots will go in the direction of your mouse.
Note* If you want self heal spells to cast on yourself with smart casting, you need to bind your keys to Smart Cast + Self Cast
Long story short, abilities that normally would require to press the shortcut button (Q,W,E,R) is launched immediatly, without the display of targeting graphics (skillshot arrows or range indicators).
You can easily set all abilities to smartcast by going to the keybindings menu and looking up options such as "Smartcast ability 1, ability 2 etc." and switching them to your normal ability keys - Q,W,E,R.
Some examples are:
*Note: After some not-too-old patch, you can see the aim-helpers on (manually set) smartcast abilities while you are holding down the ability key.
