is it possible to make an aura activate via ability and with autocast...

i made an aura but getting it to work from an ability seems to be impossible (at least if you want auto-cast to be a part of it). what its supposed to do is target enemy units lowering their attack speed and movement speed and have a periodic effect of doing 2 damage every 3 seconds or so... Kyuft or Siretu or anyone who knows how can you help me?

So ability-wise, you want a button to turn on/off the aura? Or did you want a button that activates the aura for like 10 seconds or so?

well yes a turn off aura... it would drain caster's energy slowly and then also slows down enemies attack and movement speed... and hurts him every 10 seconds dealing 2 damage.

so you want immolation, and a trigger that adds a endurance aura when immolation is turned on, and removes it when immolation is turned off?

You want to make your ability of the type Behaviour and make sure to check the flag Toggle (Stats: Flags property).

As far as making the ability autocast, Behaviour type abilities are designed to always be on unless the validators specified in the Ability: Auto Cast Validators + property return false. As such, the only thing that can trigger the ability to activate is the validators specified in the above mentioned property. Now I imagine you would want the ability to activate once the caster enters combat. Fortunately there is a validator called Caster In Combat which you can use. There are also a few other validators that may be more appropriate such as CasterInCombatLong or Caster Is Attacking. You will just have to try a few out and see which ones best suits your needs (you may need to even combine a couple).

    "hey tom_mai please do not archive anymore news" ----> Got it. What should we do with the "News Archive" subforum?
  • The Helper The Helper:
    I think leave it for real old news that cannot be sorted the reason we had it in the first place was a server issue that we do not have anymore. I don't want to get rid of the archive just not put anything in it for now until we figure it out more
