So I was playing a bit of Bristleback, and after it got to late game, as it does, and I got an octarine core, with more mana than I could spend, I was pressing w to walk.

After that game, and a certain amount of hand cramp, I was wondering if there was a way, a console command possibly to make an ability able to be autocast?

I have a feeling the answer's no, as I vaguely remember autocast being added to specific spells in patches, but if you don't ask, you don't find out.

No it's not possible. at present the only autocastable ability are :

  • Manually castable Unique Attack Modifier like Drow's Frost Arrow or Viper's Poison Attack
  • Lich's Frost Armor
  • Ogre Magi's BloodLust
  • Troll Priest's (neutral) heal

You can however set a macro (on your mouse/keyboard) to press the key every x.xx sec depending on the spell.

  • Good workaround, and nice summary. I'll leave it for a bit, but if nothing better comes up, I'm happy to accept this. – Yann Jun 1 '15 at 14:55
  • You can add OD orb, Hushkar fire arrows, Clinks fire arrows, Silencer glaives and Enchantress ultimate. – zozo Jun 1 '15 at 15:32
  • Also you can add big troll raise corpses. – zozo Jun 1 '15 at 15:36
  • @zozo OD arcane orb and so on are mentionned in the first point as Unique Attack Modifier. DarkTroll summoner's raising corpse ability has been removed from autocasting ability in dota 2 – WizLiz Jun 1 '15 at 15:46
