It's nothing like Dota 1. Surely you've seen some screenshots from the shop on the net? It's basically one single shop where you buy your items. And you have different tabs to choose from, like "Upgrades", "Weapons", "Support", etc.

Dota 2's shop is just like the normal Dota's, the only difference is that it's improved and easier to use. Each shop in Dota 1 is represented by a category in the menus in Dota 2.

You will get used to it pretty fast, and you can build your own recommended items, which is amazing. Don't want to finish building an item through browsing the shop menus or usinga large amount of hotkeys? No problems, you can stick all the items you will need on the UI for easier purchasing.

In my opinion, Dota 2's shop is great. There's many things to improve about it yet, but with enough feedback those things will be addressed.

It like HoN shop but without key binding and without draging

U can do everything with right click, and some draging that is not needed with left click

Like HoN one if you played that

It's like this:



There is also the new version. There are 2 tabs with just items icons, one tab for basic items, another one for composite ones.

Note that screenshot is pretty old and UI has changed a bit since then, including shop options.
