Object Editor – Dummy spell, fields.

First of all, copy paste the Undead spell Frost Armor. Not the one with the (autocast) editor prefix behind, but the other. Now, we need to change the fields to suit our needs.
Starting from the top, change the icon to Divine Shield. Then change the Data – armor bonus to 0 for all levels, but the armor duration for level 1 to 15, level 2 to 30 and for level 3 to 45. Then change the Stats – buffs to Divine Shield. After that, change the cooldown for level 1 to 35, level 2 to 50 and for level 3 to 65. Finally, change the Duration Normal, Hero as for the armor duration: 15, 30 and 45 and the mana cost 25 for all levels and don’t forget to change the tooltips. You should see something like this:

Trigger Editor – Spell itself.

Now, you should have completed the part above. Load your trigger editor and make this simple trigger.

The Custom Script (JASS) is needed, to give the spell MUI. The wait action Real part is found under Conversion – Convert Integer to Real. Well, thats about it, you are done (wasnt so hard, was it?:))! Happy map making, you can use this with another similiar spells, you want to be castable.

there's a small leak here. when you declare a local you must null it afterwards.
just add an action Set divine_target = No unit and problem solved.
anyway gj, but i think this would rather belong to free trigger code.

Fixed it. Never thought about the free trigger section. Oh, well. Thanks for feedback.
 
Making spells is as fun as doing triggers, nice that new spell tutorials come up. There should be more of them. There are alot of spells do teach ppl.
 
I think this would serve its purpose better, if anyone kind enough could move it to the free trigger code submissions.:)
 
Have you tested what happens when you cast the shield on a unit which already has it? It may get a bit messy, I think.
 
Hmmm, you cant target a unit which is invulnerable, unless you change the targets allowed of the base-spell.
 
Yeah, I already meant that if it is able to cast on invulnerable. The thing that would happen is that it shoots off another trigger but the on-going shield's trigger would still be running and it would make the unit vulnerable too early.

Got the point?
 
Thing is, you forgot to change the hotkey; the name of the spell says the hotkey is C, but it actually is D.
 
This is pretty much the same as my ability here

After reading that you understand what I'm trying to say? Your spell can't be cast before it has worn off, though. But if it were, then it'll be the same as mine. :(

Hmmm. It is MUI, I used locals. But sorry, if I don't get the point. Had a terrible night.

    I am working on getting access to the old news portal under a different URL for those that would rather use that for news before we get a different news view.
  • Ghan Ghan:
    Easily done
    +1
  • The Helper The Helper:
    https://www.thehelper.net/pages/news/ is a link to the old news portal - i will integrate it into the interface somewhere when i figure it out
  • Ghan Ghan:
    Need to try something
  • Ghan Ghan:
    Hopefully this won't cause problems.
  • Ghan Ghan:
    Hmm
  • Ghan Ghan:
    I have converted the Headline News forum to an Article type forum. It will now show the top 20 threads with more detail of each thread.
  • Ghan Ghan:
    See how we like that.
  • The Helper The Helper:
    I do not see a way to go past the 1st page of posts on the forum though
  • The Helper The Helper:
    It is OK though for the main page to open up on the forum in the view it was before. As long as the portal has its own URL so it can be viewed that way I do want to try it as a regular forum view for a while
  • Ghan Ghan:
    Yeah I'm not sure what the deal is with the pagination.
  • Ghan Ghan:
    It SHOULD be there so I think it might just be an artifact of having an older style.
  • Ghan Ghan:
    I switched it to a "Standard" article forum. This will show the thread list like normal, but the threads themselves will have the first post set up above the rest of the "comments"
  • The Helper The Helper:
    I don't really get that article forum but I think it is because I have never really seen it used on a multi post thread
  • Ghan Ghan:
    RpNation makes more use of it right now as an example: https://www.rpnation.com/news/

    What do you think Tom?
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    I will have to get used to this.
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    The latest news feed looks good
  • The Helper The Helper:
    I would like to see it again like Ghan had it the first time with pagination though - without the pagination that view will not work but with pagination it just might...

    This drink recipe I have had more than a few times back in the day! Mind Eraser https://www.thehelper.net/threads/cocktail-mind-eraser.194720/
  • The Helper The Helper:
    Happy Thursday!
  • Ghan Ghan:
    I'm not so sure, there's still a lot of Thursday left for it to become unhappy.
