Default 7 item slots in Dota 2?


I will probably get flamed for this idea, but maybe TPs could use a separate slot? New items are added like every 3 versions, and it's already hard to choose what to buy..

No need to flam op.

As soon as I saw the title, I thought "only if 1 slot is exclusively for TP scrolls". It could be a good idea. Would really help those heroes who have only small items (supports).
Now they don't have to give up on 1 small items to always carry a TP scroll.

But Ice will decide.

This suggestion will further increase the already huge late game power gap between carries and the rest of the heroes in a game as the carries can become even stronger with being able to wield one more item. The 6 item slot system is fine IMO.

Well bot won't be useless because it allows you to teleport on buildings and creeps and with TP you can only teleport on buildings.

How about the current system: 5 slots for anything you like + 1 slot for tp scrolls, except when you aren't using xp scrolls you can use that extra slot of something else. Do you really think that adding a seventh slot would make the game better?

I support this for recipes, TP's, etc. minor items. maybe potion of clarity/salve too, can't imagine them take up much bag space anyway(especially clarities).

But since Boots is the only core item on every hero, wouldn't it pointless?

Just 7 regulair slots would do the same.

I think it's better if that separate slot could also be filled by BoT. It will be a nice buff to an underused item. (Don't tell me it's good, it's my favourite item after Dagger =)

Lol dude, FYI carries also use TP scrolls, so this would essentially give them one tier 4 more to carry or allow them to never get rid of Treads/Phase.

+1 slot seems resonable if you are worried about carrys, you should think in the first place what you did wrong to let them farm 7slots of high tier items...

No since it`s a part of the balance, items have a limit of damage and if this will be implemented items` damage must be reduced

If they farmed 5-6 tier 4 items they can afford losing PT and Phase's bonuses. Besides, BoT only gets better and better as the game drags on and towers get destroyed.

if it wouldnt be for tinker id say good idea, just make BoT into permanent TP for more gold - its not like many heroes actually use BoT in average games. anyhow.. this is something that should be discussed on a dota 2 forum once it gets released, cuz as ppl said its gonna be more or less a carbon copy.

NO WHY REMOVE BOT! It's one of the most awesome items. +95 ms is no freaking joke.

Wait, he's never too much.


Srsly now, adding 1 more slot might turn really imbalanced... Many reasons explained above.

You should have to pick between TP's and other items (commonly HP). It's a large part of the game, especially for supports.
