I actually don't recommend AoE abilities to be on smartcast.

I've been using smartcast for easily 100 - 200 games, and I've experimented heavily with it.

AoE abilities are SIGNIFICANTLY more difficult to land on smart cast; this is mostly because AoE abilities take a good amount of leading the enemy and making sure all enemies present are hit. Additionally, it's harder to get perfectly in range with AoE. So I suggest you take W and R off of smartcast, they're more efficient without it.

With the stun from Annie and my general experience with leading enemies from playing Amumu a lot, it's not INCREDIBLY difficult to land W and R, especially in a teamfight where people are too busy to kite you.

However, I don't recommend using smartcast on certain clutch skills that you need to line up well - Ashe ultimate, Amumu bandage, Shen taunt, etc. Xaioli can testify to missing a ton of bandages and grabs because of smartcast :P

I actually smart-cast the Ashe arrow, Bandage, and the Shen taunt. Difficulty level remains the same, in my opinion O.o

HE ALSO MISSES LIKE 90% OF HIS BANDAGES AND GRABS

I don't hit people with rocket grab much.

But when I do,

It's always Malphite.

In my opinion smartcasting is actually not that great of an option to use.

Good use of smartcasting requires one to know the exact range of every spell a hero has; not knowing this can actually make your play either sloppier or make you not use the full spell range your hero has effectively.

Of course, to have such precision, it might take many months, or maybe years, to master a single hero. Even high ELO streams put their cursor over Nocturne's ultimate to see the exact range they have; the same goes for spells.

Just my two cents.

Never really been a fan of Smartcasting unless it's during the laning phase.

When it comes to teamfights, even if it is .5 seconds slower, I do want to be as accurate as possible.
