Spell Electric Focus

Electric Focus v2.0

by Lambdadelta (aka Siraraz and BlackRose)

Last updated: 15/08/2012​


This spell is basically a recode of Builder_Bob's Electric Focus and shares the same functionality almost.​

Description of Spell

The hero will begin focusing electricity infront of himself, electrocuting any enemy unit that gets in the electricity's way; dealing damage. The electricity is directed towards the hero's gaze, so turning around will redirect the angle the lightning focuses on. While focusing, attack and movement is disabled.

Lasts until mana is depleted.​

Coding Details


I'd like to give credit to the following people:
  • Nestharus for TimerTools
  • Magtheridon96 for RegisterPlayerUnitEvent and whose existing works acted as a guideline for how I should do things
  • Bribe for Table and SpellEffectEvent
  • Rising_Dusk for GroupUtils
  • Vexorian, Cohadar and anyone who contribued to JassHelper
  • PitzerMike and anyone else who contributed to JassNewGenPack
  • SFilip and anyone else who contributed to TESH
  • Builder_Bob for the concept and code which acted as a guideline/base for how I coded this
  • Halo7568/Krysho for his findings on the exploit with Channel and cooldown preservations.

What is this? I'm seeming to have omitted the update dates. Well, I actually uploaded this ages back at The Hiveworkshop, and got some feedback there, so no, not 5 updates in 7 hours :p

Hm. Me dunno. But fixed now.

    really cool! I saw the game before but always thought it's just a half as good double dragon. Now I realize it actually has a lot of depth!
