How to ward in Dota 2.

 One of the Main things that you need to Take Care in Dota 2 is supporting. Its one of the most important Role in Dota 2.
First let me describe the wards.

There are two types of wards in Dota 2

  1. Observer Ward
  2. Sentry Wards

When you buy either you get a pair of wards. Which means that when  you buy observer ward from the shop ( Price = 150 ) ( as on 19/4/2013) you will get a pair of observer wards. So you have 2 observer wards in your inventory. :)

  • Observer Ward

Observer Ward

  1.  To give vision of large area.
  2. Helps you know enemy team Movement in the Map.
  3. Block of Creep Camps ( if placed near / on their spawn site)
  4. Observer Wards are Good for high ground Vision.
  • Sentry Ward

Sentry Ward

  1. Sentry Wards give True sight Vision
  2. Sentry Ward is used to Deward enemy's observer wards
  3. It helps to see invisible heroes like Stealth Assassin, Bounty Hunter , Brood Mother etc

Wards to Place When You are Radiant :

Dire Ancients Warding Spot - NO REXXAR /TINKER

This ward is Mainly Placed when you have a solo Beastmaster in hard lane in dire. Mainly Because of the dire ancient stacking which he can clear off Later. This ward is preferred because You can place it from the below in the river. Which Means that you do not have to endanger yourself going up high ground in the Dire side. Also its sort of difficult to guess this ward. Even after knowing its there the Dire Hero might just place a sentry ward there blocking out the creep camp. :P
Job Done we are happy he dewarded it :P

This Ward Provides vision of the Dire Ancient

Here the ward is placed on the high slope . It does not block the ancient creep spawn. However it will give vision of anyone farming the ancients. IT can be used to turn a game upside down ( especially if you find the carry farming here)

Secret Shop Vision (useful when your doing Roshan )

This might look like its an offensive ward. But frankly its a defensive ward. Its mainly Placed while doing Roshan. It gives you an early Warning that the Dire team is coming.

Ward By Solo Dire Top Lane Hero. This ward Prevent Radiant from Pullin in top lane.

This ward is extremely important when trying to solo top lane versus trilane of Radiant. This ward blocks off the camp that radiant can pull on top Lane. Also it gives you a nice vision if any1 tries to backstab you.
