-Sound is being worked on.
-Added the cooldown to the info
-There is a flashing exclamation mark when you die
-Increased the kings health to 7000 and bumped up his defense to 21
-The "Travel Boots" price was decreased to 1500 and the speed you gain from it was also increased to 1.4 and the cooldown decreased to 140s

i couldn't find a better place to put feedback, so here goes:

nicely done interpretation of DotA in BYOND. there appears to be quite a lot of content in the game already!

-the game is very awkwardly silent. there are lots of free-to-use sound effects out there that could liven it up a lot
-it's kind of annoying to have to click move everywhere. in other DotA games it feels normal, but that's because movement there is much smoother and more responsive than BYOND's default tile based movement. i can already attack enemies and use abilities with my keyboard; i'd love it if the format was something like WASD to move (alongside click movement), and 1234 to use abilities (or QERF)
-philosopher's stone doesn't state a cooldown on its ability
-there is some type of glitch causing a single item to sometimes be displayed twice in your inventory. i've seen it several times while browsing the shop
-when i died, my character looked no different, but was frozen in place and unable to act, and then respawned after 20 or so seconds. there should definitely be graphical indicators for death
-the archer's marksmanship ability allows him to hit towers outside of the towers' attack range
-the king was much easier to kill than the towers that came before him
-creeps will often times attack the 0 HP king even though there's a still-standing tower right next to him whose existence is keeping him invulnerable
-you should probably add some type of hearthstone ability that takes ~10 seconds to cast and is interrupted by any damage. it's currently very tedious to clickclickclickclick all the way to the shop and back, and travel boots are extremely expensive
