Smarcasting is one click instead of two. Your spell activate automatically when you click on it. Its casted were your cursor is. Its extremely helpful on fast casters such as Ryze and Cassiopeia as you can spam your spells way easier. But of course it takes some practice to get used to it and there are some spells you might dont want to smarcast at all.


You can also smartcast your special abilities items such as Zhonya's Hourglass.


Hopes this helps you out

I used to hate the idea smartcast for unspoken reasons, but it's definitely worth a try. I still very much prefer without for now.

I just map reg cast to qwer and smart cast to 1234. SO I can reg cast still, but if I'm playing a smartcast champ I just move keys up a row or use 1234 on my mouse.

Do pro AP players use smartcast? At times I ponder putting it one to compensate some frustrating moments, but I also wonder if I won't end up using spells on minions half the time. I also see a lot top player videos locking their champs, it messes me up keeping that locked sight thingy :s
