I see a lot of people don't know how to smart cast or what smart cast is, so this thread should answer some questions.

OK!

With smart cast all you have to do is press an ability button (E.g. Q W E R) and the ability will head straight to the target under your mouse! pretty much removing the left click all together.
If you have played Karthus, his lay waste is already a smart cast. so that is the general idea.
(smart cast on Ezreal makes him so much easier once you get used to it)

HOW TO SMART CAST
Smart cast is defult set to holding shift and pressing the ability button (Q W E R).
you can change the smart cast key ingame to just Q W E or R.
In game press ESC then go to "Key bindings"
Scroll down a little bit to "smart cast spell 1"
click the blue bar and set it to Q, this will set Q to smart casting spell 1.
Do it for the other 3 abilities and your summoner spells if you wish to.

save the changes and enjoy smart-casting!
Great for caster combo's and skill shot champions.

please tell me anything I have missed so i can add it to the thread. Thank you.

It's a huge help on combo casters like Viegar. I think default is SHIFT + q/w/e/r for the American client. It basically makes your spells cast like Flash: you don't see a targeting cursor, the spell just casts.

With this configuration, you will ony press the hability (like Q) and the magic will happen wherever your mouse is at the momment? Did I understand it right?

Yes. Instead of getting a targeting cursor (often with that range-circle being shown), it skips that step and assumes you left-clicked where the mouse already is, essentially. It's faster, less clicking.

It's still useful sometimes to get the targeting cursor, but there it is.
