    I have a question. Say that I want to make something like the 4 spellbooks stuff. Can I make it so that while adding another spell, you also increase the levels of previous spells (Adding entirely new abilities but more powerful) or do I have to do that via triggers?

    IE: Level 1: Firebolt
    Level 2: Super Firebolt, Inner Fire
    Level 3: Ultra Firebolt, Super Inner Fire, Flame Strike

    Or must level 2 contain the normal Fire Bolt and level 3 the Firebolt and Inner Fire?

    Lvling the skills

    basically wat i wanted to do with my spells was to add 2-3 spelbooks in a single heroes abuillities example frost spells/fire spells/lightning spells in a mages abillities then as they llv the spellbook they get the abillitties equal to the books llv to use freely this way u can fully customize ur hero to wat suites u best wen i tried ur tutorial i ended up with a epllbook i learn once and all the skills are in it:banghead: i tried countless times to try a rigger or something but nothing in the triggers seems to correspond with my probleme wat i did was i added a spellbook called holy in a priests abillities and checked if it would work b4 i wentfurther in my customization at the starting lvl 1 i get a abillity point like always i placed it in the spellbook and poof imn a lvl 1 with 8 spells o_O

    I'm quite confused about changing the Hero-learnable spellbook icon. Is it possible to change it from the original without it turning all green in-game? it's 12:00 in the evening here right now and i'm too tired to figure it out.

    Are you using a custom icon?
    Have you imported it correctly? (check the path, etc.)

    the code

    Do you need the code for the spellbook to work.

    By this I mean can u just follow the tutorial to complete the spellbook and it just have the abilities, say at level 1 for instance. I mean, can you just make an item spellbook which has the abilities, and u can use one after the other, while the used ones are still 'cooldowning'. I saw it on a Warcraft map and it was soo cool.

    im using spellbooks in my map and im giving a hero a spellbook (with triggers)which he doesnt already have as an ability and i wanna know if its possible to give him the spellbook and make him able to level it up as a normal ability, using triggers.

    Anyone getting the same problem?

    Is it possible to Put a Spellbook inside of another Spellbook? There's just about no practical use for this but I was wondering anyways ;]

    Side note - On my map that i'm working on ATM, it's only allowing me to put item abilities into the Spellbook, and that's not really a big problem as I've just been making all my abilities Item abilities and they work just fine, been adding them as hero levels fine as well.. Just a bit of a pain and a nuisance and was wondering if there was any explanation or easy fix that i'm missing.

    Thanks :D

    One question, will the hot keys for spells inside a spell book work even if you didn't open the spell book yet?
