Spell Elune's Arrow

Coming Back To Life
Here's another DotA spell made by me. Elune's Arrow. It's all in GUI.
It containd a Game Message, so you can see how much the stun duration will be on the affected unit. You can deleted that Game Message.
Please tell me any leaks, or improvement, so I can improve this and added to the index.


Elune's Arrow
Fires an arrow to a location with deadly precision, dealing large damage and stunning the first unit it strikes. Stun duration increases based on how far the target is, ranging from 0.5 to 5 seconds.

Level 1 - Deals 90 damage.
Level 2 - Deals 180 damage.
Level 3 - Deals 270 damage.
Level 4 - Deals 360 damage.

No problem at all. It would be better, to have the two versions. And how can I make this MPI or MUI? If it can be MPI or MUI...I mean for the global variable or wait time..
Well MUI would require JASS (because you use 2 triggers)

MPI would require you to use an Array so that 1 hero per player may use this spell

Learning vJASS ;)
seems easy to do.. a repeating timer, quick attachments, distance move and check on the same timer...

Just somethings, why have the stun in one trigger if you can have the stun in the other trigger ? then you could rid of the wait.
The spell looks fine +rep

Offtopic: o_O i live in argentina too.. :p

This location is never removed.

-----------------------------

> I really think there should be a rule that spells and systems should be at least MPI.

Then why not make it so every spell needs to be JASS for better efficiency? And then it should also need to avoid BJs at all cost. It should also be perfect, too! ;)

Nah, it's like that because a spell can still be decent without being neither MPI nor MUI.

> seems easy to do.. a repeating timer, quick attachments, distance move and check on the same timer...

In a perfect world there would be a template for every spell in our Spell Section, and so no one could come up with a spell since the templates are already covering it all.

But, this isn't a perfect world. It's maybe easy for you, but not for everyone ;)
 

waaaks!

I am certain that Elune's Arrow cannot be created with GUI.. Possible with GUI-Jass combo.. GUI kinda's slow for the movement of the arrow..

Even if it's slow, a sliding trigger would work...which you can do in GUI. It's just nicer in JASS.

Hero1234, you have to tell if you are going to make the JASS version of this. So I can update it.

    What a fucking disaster. Are all of the Texas people okay? I see TH is, are we the only two?
  • Varine Varine:
    How have the other states held up? I just got power back so I have no idea what's going on, we didn't get warning
  • Varine Varine:
    Why the fuck didn't they fix this ten years ago when it happened?
  • Blackveiled Blackveiled:
    I'm in it with you and TH as well. My power has been in and out, and I have a ruptured pipe that I need to fix, shouldn't be too bad to fix myself.
  • Varine Varine:
    I hope you're staying warm! Apparently the supply is coming up so hopefully we can get back to normal power soon, mine has been on for six hours now.
  • M Mulciberxp:
    My power has been off most of the last 2 days. We had a generator installed 3 years ago though, so we're staying warm. Water is another issue...
  • The Helper The Helper:
    Where I live has a pool so we are using that to get water to flush the toilets. We have enough bottled water to drink and brush teeth and stuff but it has been a few days and no shower though....
  • Varine Varine:
    I had some water in gallon jugs, and got our water back on yesterday. We don't seem to have any leaks, but I haven't crawled down there to look yet.
  • The Helper The Helper:
    still no water I cannot remember when I last showered now I know how they felt in the old west lol
  • Varine Varine:
    My poor plants are happy, they aren
  • Varine Varine:
    aren't used to going this long without water or lights or normal heat. I think a couple of them froze, but they look like they'll make it
  • Varine Varine:
    Well one of them is pretty rough but I think it was sick to begin with, that one always had some problems.

    That is such a Texas thing to say lol

    a positive could come out of this. So many people trapped at home could put a dent in the covid numbers in Texas
  • Varine Varine:
    That dude, Tom Boyd, is really upset about the backlash from his "it's your fault you're freezing" thing because he claims he resigned before saying it, so it wasn't like he said it in his official capacity or anything.
  • jonas jonas:
    Almost as if he was saying "screw you guys, I'm going home"
  • Varine Varine:
    I'm fairly new here still but that seems to be the analogous message by several of our politicians.
