I'm new to dota but have played quite a bit of league of legends and I'm very much used to using ctrl-qwer to level up my abilities. Is there a way to do this in dota 2?

  • Control+QWER. Set 'attribute learn' to something for stats; I use Z.

  • Unfortunately despite what possible key remapping you do on OS X mac it seems command skill key is what seems to be used. Dec 21 '18 at 3:50

I'm not a very experienced player but I just opened up Dota 2 and tried mapping 'Ability Learn' to control and it didn't work.

However, upon a little bit of research and testing to verify if what this site says is true, it seems that what you're asking is hard-coded into the game, and that's why you can't change the key binding for control through the options menu.

So basically: ctrl+(ability key) DOES level up your ability, without needing any changes in your settings.

  • Well that was easy, I tried it in the tutorial and it didn't work but just tried it in a bot game and it worked, thanks.

  • @amccaffrey The tutorial only letts you get a specific ability iirc.
