Pro tip: smartcast Kart's R for maximum damage hue

You could make your own criteria about what do you thing will be more comfortable to smart cast and what do you thing you will mess up if you smart cast

That's it.

You can even found pros who don't smart cast at all, like Froggen, who you rarely see missing a skillshot, and Dyrus, who even play a lot of time in fixed camara and doesn't smart cast overall, or pros than don't use smarcast in AOE stuff like Veigar.

And you will see people who smartcast everything, even things like Veigar stun, like bigfatlp.

So, yeah, click and point skills make you faster, but for skillshots it's your choice.

Yeah. Champion-specific and ability-specific binds are a good way to go. I do the same. It does require you to play a champion for a while, to find the configuration that works best for you.

Pro tip: Always check your Keybindings at the start of every game, to make sure you're set up for the right champion. Nothing worse than tossing an errant Ashe ulti because you weren't expecting it to be on smartcast, lol.

Most pros don't smartcast because it isn't as accurate

it depends but people who tend to smartcast are usually pretty bad with their skillshots. not everything is dependent on speed, accuracy is important as well. do what you are comfortable with.

I don't smartcast anything. I've tried teaching it to myself several times, but it's just way too inaccurate with the champs I play. I still surprise people when I tell them I don't smartcast. :\

I generally don't unless I'm very familiar with a champion's skill range.

If you are having trouble smart casting these type of skills, you hold the key as you drag your mouse the direction you are aiming. Its easy once you get the hang of it.. but yes every spell can be smart cast.
