    Another way is to google "warding", "de-warding", "neutrals stacking", "pulling creeps", "support items" or something like that. I guess the rest (like babysitting and setting up kills for carries) can't be learned from guides.
    Thanks I'll look into all of these.
    Atm I know pretty much all of the basics including giving the carry solo exp when it's safe, running off to stack etc etc. My problem is execution and keeping it consistent as I've had games where I've felt useless and times where I've given myself a good pat on the back.

    I think there should be an item to protect from bashes like bkb does for magic. Maybe some other effects too which bkb doesnt cover(like entangle).

    The only thing you can really buy to prevent perma bashes is dodge and fun fact: the item to counter dodge has a bash on it.

    What would you say to such an item?

    Is it more or is Halberd one of the most underrated items you can get or am I overrating it?

    It has very good use on supports or semi-carry but it builds out of expensive items and can't be rushed. Add here high mana cost and i think it's at the place where it should be.

    It's very seituational item, but with proper usage it will turn tides of battle

    Bashes are fine. They can be frustrating, but most of the time they aren't. If you add an item that provides immunity to physical effects like bash, entangle, net etc all you will do is create another must-have carry item that you need to farm before you can teamfight.

    The only bash/RNG heroes I find frustrating to play against are Troll and Void, it's not purely because of the bash. Void has RNG on backtrack as well (which I wish would be changed in some way) on top of good base stats, an escape and a potentially teamwide disable, so there's no real risk/reward involved in playing him. Troll is more or less balanced around permabash, which makes him extremely annoying but if there was an item to remove bashes entirely he would need a buff in other areas.

    Oh, the times when bash effect stacked with each others. I still miss you MoM+basher troll.

    No the HH works because if they can't attack they can't bash. :P

    I am thinking of an item similar to BKB giving temporary immunity with diminishing returns. I dont think that item would be as mandatory as a BKB is. Its more of a situational item. I also dont think it would destroy those heroes completely. There are other item combinations like PAs Blur nullified by MKB which hurt much more.

    Yeah but it comes at the cost of being unable to do anything but cast. Its fine for casters, but if you are dependent on white hit damage you havent gained anything.

    I know I am just saying that as a white damage hero you cant do anything efficient against bash heroes and I dont think it should be this way. There is an item against everything, why not bashes.

    Its not even the bash heroes that bother me that much. They are mostly far from op. Its just that I think there shouldnt be a mechanic that cant be countered, especially when its the "Right click and watch them stand still until death" mechanic. I find it kind of ridiculous when a Void with MoM and MKB can solo a 6 slotted carry with triple net worth 1 on 1. I know its a team game, but still pretty stupid.

    It can be countered by not letting them attack

    well, not everything has a counter, there is a reason why alot of ultimates go through bkb, ghost scepter works against bashes fine, but its a situational item and isnt always the best investment, which is fine, items should be choices, its already pretty boring to see some heroes going practically the same item build game after game (gyro, AM, PL, NP etc). And I would love to see a 6slot carry, that got blown up by void with one dmg item and without bkb, did he get 10 bashes in a row, while catching the entire team in chrono?
