Best Answer

In order to play Dota without Warcraft 3, you would have to buy Dota 2 through the Steam store run by the publisher Valve. You can play a free, albeit different version of Dota by downloading League of Legends. While not the same mechanics as Dota, League of Legends follows the same structure and is influenced quite heavily by Dota.
