1st if you don't know what smart cast is/means try this: pick some champion with a targetable skill or skill shot and hold shift before you hit the skill key (Q W E R)

basically it will automatically cast that spell where your mouse cursor is. it's like Cass, Urgot and Karthus' Q.

(you can also change your key binds in the options to smart cast)

2nd The Suggestion:

add an option to toggle the smart cast.

so you could bind a key / combination of keys and quickly toggle smart cast on/off for each skill separately.

if necessary we could have a button near the skills (right click would work too), something like:

Attachment 213359
Green 'S' = smart cast on
Red 'S' = smart cast off

I'm not sure about the HUD that's just an example, imo it's not that necessary but would be cool and make things a lot easier.

i thought about a small area near the 'S' where you could left click to turn on/off smart cast, but your idea would work too

btw found this here other thread about smart cast:

There's champions where you want smartcast on some abilities and not on others. And having to rebind keys at the beginning of every single game is not an acceptable solution.
TL;DR
I want to quickly toggle smart-cast on/off Q W E R (separately) using hotkeys and maybe HUD element/buttons.


if you want this or think that it's a good idea please bump it \o/ , thanks.

My dream is cast on release, so I can smart cast, or hold it down longer for the rare times when I want to see a range circle or something.

A quick tap would have essentially the same effect as a normal smart-cast, while holding the key would let you line up a skillshot or zone precisely without needing to use modifier keys or extra keybindings.

This is essential for smart-cast to be actually usable for Rumble's ult. However, I'm not sure if the "press to show range, release to cast" thing should be applied to other spells as well. Right now, all smart casts are triggered by key press events. If we are to change them to be triggered by key release events, it'll be a subtle change that delays your cast for a few frames. Will this ruin the timing in highly competitive situations?

I want to expose it as an option in the menus, but we've got some other higher priority stuff right now.

Smart cast toggle is a great idea, would like to do it as a right click and show if someone smartcasts by default (Karthus q). Not sure yet if we'll be able to disable smartcasting on spells that have them by default.

You are dumb right?


If you go to keybindings and replace all the smart casting shift + QWER with just Q, W, E and R, then you can have mouse over casting on only the spells you choose. If I play rumble or a champion where i dont like smartcast on a certain spell, I go into keybindings and put that spell (say it's Q, I'd assign Q) to the regular casting spot, and not the smartcasting spot.

edit; this is all ingame.

I am agreeing.

I personally would make it so numlock toggled smart cast on and off.

omg yes! if this is implemented then I can finally play Jarvan perfectly without having to always switch my key bindings or mess up my E>Q combo just because I was too lazy to switch it.

Smart cast Q and E

Normal cast W and R

You can use ASDF for smart cast and get this behavior today or just rebind the keys you like on a per-game basis.

While I like the idea, the number of skills that require you to actually regular cast them is low (aside from a few ultimates, which ones?). It should not be too painstaking to change it in the options if you are playing that individual champ.

On the other hand, if you just prefer regular casting over smartcasting for certain abilities on each champ, then yes, this is a useful and good idea. +1
