7. Don't forget about those sentry wards

wards in dota 2

Now, everyone seems to know that buying regular wards is important, but the reality is buying sentry wards is equally important. Why you ask? Because Dota 2, like actual warfare, is a game about information.  

Typically in warfare, the side who the most update to date intelligence is going to win. While regular wards may give you sight, this doesn't help much if the enemy can see you as well. Sentry wards help keep your opponents in the dark so that they will have a harder time seeing what you're up to and more importantly when you are staging an attack.  

With sentry wards in place, they will help you discover the enemy's wards so that you can destroy them, a task known as dewarding, and its benefits are huge. Dewarding will allow you to secure runes safer, jungle safer, and set up more successful ganks.

Oh, and, of course, there are all the other invisible dangers in Dota 2 that can get you killed. Mines, Bounty Hunter, Riki, heroes with a shadow blade—these are all threats to your safety. But never fear, as long as you have some sentries on hand, you can travel safer.
