About Practice mode:

-lvlup 

For example: -lvlup 10
Increases your heroes' level by 
. Max level you can reach with this is level 25. No negative values allowed (i.e. you can't "level down").
Console command: dota_dev hero_level

-respawn

Respawns your hero at the fontain (no matter if he was dead or not).
Console command: dota_dev hero_respawn

-refresh

Refreshes (resets) Mana, Cooldowns, HP, ... of your hero(es).
Console command: dota_dev hero_refresh

-gold 

For example: -gold 1000
Increases your gold by . Positive and negative values are allowed. Max gold is 16383.
Console command: dota_dev player_givegold

-item 

For example: -item item_blade_mail
Gives your hero . You find the item names in scripts/npc/items.txt

I made a list here: http://typhox.net/misc/Dota_items.txt

-startgame

Skips the timer to the first creepspawn.
Console command: dota_dev forcegamestart

-killwards

Destroys all wards (to be confirmed)

-createhero 

Examples:
-createhero Mirana
-createhero npc_dota_creep_goodguys_melee

Creates a hero/unit/building er your control at your mouse cursor position. Heroes will be taken control by a bot, so you can't buy items for them on the regular way. However, that bot is idle, i.e. he does not do anything, but buys items in the beginning.

You can't create heroes that aren't in the game yet (only in the developer version).

You find the names in scripts/npc/npc_units.txt and scripts/npc/npc_heroes.txt.

There are many names that are working. For example the entry er "SoSet" is sometimes also valid, so you can create Mirana on (at least) three ways:

-createhero Mirana
-createhero Hero_Mirana
-createhero npc_dota_hero_mirana


I'm currently looking for a list

-levelbots 

Levels all bot heroes on your side by .
See: -lvlup

-givebots 

gives all bots item .
For more information, see -item

-wtf, -unwtf

Seems to be currently only working in the developer/debug version sadly...

-timescale

Seems to be not working yet.

-spawnneutrals

(re)spawns neutral creeps.

-spawncreeps

Spawns a wave of creeps (Warning: If you do that too often so that there are too many creeps at once in the game, the server will disconnect you.)

-disablecreepspawn

Disables creepspawn.

-enablecreepspawn

Enables creepspawn.

-killcreeps

Seems to be not working.

-allvision

Gives vision over Radiant and Dire.

-normalvision

Reverts vision back to normal from -allvision command.

-clearwards

Removes Observerwards from the map (not sentry wards?).
