    HoN Hints

    Thought it would be cool to post just random hints people have gathered while playing HoN. My first hint for people is.....

    control 3 At lvl 7 Ophelia can solo kongor. What you do is mind minitors (or other units with high hp) and go in against kongor. Just micro the minitors around. When one gets low pull it out and have kongor switch targets. Repeat until all three at low then ulti with Ophelia. Also when microing your minitors beware that kongor does switch targets randomly and may swap to a low one. So beware and react fast. If you lose one minitor or other unit you can not solo kongor anymore. So at lvl 7 Ophelia just got the team and extra +250 and you also have a token of life. Happy Ganking!

    You can buy items as your dying.

    Always buy boots as soon as you can when your laning

    Heroes with blinks should blink into the trees on the side when getting ganked as no one else can get to them then (besides deadwood). Try to be sneaky as you blink. Run one way and blink an obscure way that is unexpected. (Be advised that some blinks like magebanes leave a minor trail so abusing fog of war and then blinking is a must.

    To control hero and micro courier better type ctrl 1 when hero is selected and ctrl 2 when courier is selected. Then you can press 1 to click on hero and 2 for courier. pressing 2 then B will bring up shop and give items to courier.

    Never cross the river mid to late game without a teammate (unless you are wrecking or having token of life). It's normally better to kill creeps in the jungle.

    Try out Puzzlebox... its a ridiculous item that is upgradeable and comes with insane minions with cool abilities. 1000 aoe truesight at level 3 and mana burn. If something kills the mauler creep it will return 600 damage to whoever killed it.

    Juking is awesome. If your about to be ganked hide behind trees or just tp to base.

    If you are ganked by heroes without disables tp to base. They wont be able to kill you hopefully. Ill add more eventually

    Or you know... anyone else with a blink, or an ability to clear cut forests.
    Only the insane have the strength enough to prosper. Only those who prosper may truly judge what is sane.

    1. You can buy items at any time, they will just be placed in your stash instead of your inventory.

    2. The tilde "~" key will switch between units you control, no need to use 1 and 2 just hit "~" and then B. Also you can Shift queue things so when you need to courier to deliver you things just hit E(Courier will bring you everything you own that it has) and then hold SHIFT and press R(Courier returns to base). This way it will come up to you drop off all your items and then return to base without you having to do anything.

    **Shift queuing also works great for skills like magmus Ulti + Portal Key, use the Ulti hold SHIFT and click where you wanna port to, this way right when the channel is done the port will go off and you wont accidentally cancel it by porting.**


    Bigg: Its my Uber and if I want to die with it your gonna have to deal with it.
