I am not sure it is possible to detect the unit that casts a spell to kill a unit... I don't know if it's even possible to detect if the unit dies by a spell.

It may however be possible with JASS, although I only know a little JASS, so I can't help you.

EDIT: Beaten

Maybe some dummies can solve.

Like when i cast the spell. the dummy apear and cast the spell.
Then i do:

Killing unit equal to dummy

then: do actions.

Let's see

Why am I still playing this game...?
If a spell kills a unit, in most cases, the unit that casted that spell will be credited as the killing unit, so you could probably use "killing unit". The only exceptions are trigger and degen based damage that don't come from the casting unit.

If you knew JASS, there is a way (of sorts). You could attach struct data to a unit, and have an integer variable as a member of the struct. Then, whenever a unit casts a spell, set the data of that integer variable to GetSpellAbilityId (). Then, you should be able to find out the last spell cast (probably not worth the effort though )

Yeah maybe not.
But i am making a workaround making a dummy spell.
I use the dummy spell, a dummy apears, cast the killing spell, then i check if is the dummy that killed the unit to activate it's effects. =D

Code:
``````Trigger 1
e - unit casts
a -
Set custom value of target to 2``````
Code:
``````Trigger 2
e -unit dies
c - custom value of triggering = 2
a -
whatever actions``````
no?

Near but no.
If i do that every unit hit when die will do the effect and i only want to effect if the unit dies by the spell.

Code:
``````Trigger 1
e - unit casts

[B]ifthenelse[/B]
[B]if[/B] hp of target < or = [spell's damage]
[B]then [/B]
damage target 13371337
