Do you guys know about the uses of "Shift" in Dota?

I only know that sank king could release the ultra in the jungle first and Shift+Dagger jump into the battle to generate powerful AOE damages. Does anybody know more? Thx :)

Shift is commonly used for Tinker and your crow. He has many skills and items to be pressed. Using shift is the execution of commands. Like for example in rearm you have to wait for second in order for you to do another thing. But with the use of shift you can save time and effort executing your moves. For your crow you can use the shift for transporting your items without even bothering at looking everytime for your crow. That is the power of shift. Shift can also be cancelled.

Yeah that's right! Limitbreaker! It also give benefit when using a crow. Especially when transfering bottles and it helps to make the process quick. Where the crow just go pick up the bottle send it to the fountain then give it again to the hero. That's really quick than comanding the a unit manually.

Shift also nice when comes to using Necromicon. Some heroes like Butcher take advantages in using Shift with Necromicon and Skills. It really minimize the time delay of using Skills and Necromicon by manual.

Yes I use this kind of method. If you have backgrounds in the Normal game. Shifting is used for rallying and for skills. since in dota, where you can only have 1 hero to control. I suppose the use of shift command in here are for skills and item use. hopefully this 2 will help when using Shift command. - Shadow Shaman's chakle then uses the fork in order to maximize the time of chakle. - Bane Elemental's Fiend grip then Dagon or what so ever skill you like. more power.
