Guide to DotA Custom Keys
In DotA it might be cumbersome to use different keyboard shortcuts for different heroes. Luckily WarCraft III supports custom keys for heroes, so that you do not have to remember all the shortcutkeys for the different spells and abilities. I will explain them in 3 different sections:
The 3-step guide
- Close your Warcraft 3, if you have it running.
- Go to AucT CustomKeys Generator and select your preferred keys. To do so simply click on a skill and then on the key of your choice. (Instructions)
- Click on Generate, then download the file "CustomKeys.txt", and place it in your WarCraft III root folder (usually, "C:\Program Files\Warcraft III").
- Start WarCraft III -> Options -> Gameplay -> Enable "Custom Keyboard Shortcuts"
NOTE: You are now good to go. Remember to update your file whenever a new version of DotA is released. To disable them, simply de-activate the "Custom Keyboard Shortcuts" option.
