Random thoughts: Hero ability Keys

7 posts in this topic

This is just a random thought I had when I got sleepy after a match yesterday. What do you guys think is the criteria Blizzard uses to assign abilities to Q, W and E?

For example, if you analyze the Support class, you will notice that all Heroes except for Kharazim and Auriel have their healing skill in the W key, as opposed to the rest having it assigned to Q, by default. Analyzing it I assume this was done because Kharazim and Auriel healing skills are in area as opposed to the single target of the other characters.

What do you guys think?

Do you mean like every hero could have their own keybinds, rather than all heroes having the same? If so, I think it would be good, seeing how popular it was on DotA among pro-players. Would you use it if such option was in the game?

Well, individual keybinds per hero, or rearrange the skills in the bar, same difference.
I think I would. I Play a lot of different roles/heroes, some consistency would be great.

What I want is Blizz allowing keybinds with the mouse roll. In D3 I keybind some skills with mouse roll + modifiers (shift, alt).

Force move on mouse roll = best.
