Make unit use ability randomly

You can change this now in User CP.
I have a unit which loses an ability at 50% health and gains another. The problem is that the unit wont use the new ability. I know there is a problem with NPCs having trouble using their abilities so I decided to make it use it via a trigger.

Trigger:
  • Remove resistance
    • Events
      • Unit - Unknown Bellor the Guardian 0011 <gen>'s life becomes Less than or equal to 450.00
    • Conditions
    • Actions
      • Unit - Remove Physical Immunity (Bellor) from Unknown Bellor the Guardian 0011 <gen>
      • Unit - Add Slam (Bellor the Guardian) (Neutral Hostile) to Unknown Bellor the Guardian 0011 <gen>
      • Wait 5.00 seconds


So there are two options now. Either I can make the unit use the ability then use "wait" and make it use it again and do this over and over and over. OR I can make it use the ability at random in the time frame of, let's say, 30-40sec and repeat it. I just don't know how.

Pretty simple.
Trigger:
  • Events
    • Time - every 30 seconds of game-time
    • Conditions
    • Actions
      • Set UnitGroup = (All units in (Playable map area) matching ((Matched unit) unit-type is equal to Unknown Bellor the Guardian))
      • Unit Group - Pick all units in UnitGroup and do (Actions)
        • Loop - Actions
          • Unit - Issue (Picked unit) to Slam
      • Custom Script: call DestroyGroup(udg_UnitGroup)

Now the cast it self is
Unit - Issue (Picked unit) to Slam
I'm not sure if it's a point/unit/instant ability, so check all.

wouldn't you just order the unit to cast the base spell from the order list? like using dummy units?

Then you must explain. Im not especially advanced in working with triggers. Only very simple ones.

I can't seem to find the Unit - Issue (Picked unit) to Slam.
I can find Issue order targeting a unit, point, destructible and an item.

just to be clear it "Unit - Issue order targeting" no target/target unit/target point or target item depending on the spell

You can make a periodic event using math - random number between 30 and 40 , and issue order targeting point/unit/no target.
It will look like this
Trigger:
  • Help
    • Events
      • Time - Every (Random real number between 30.00 and 40.00) seconds of game time
    • Conditions
    • Actions
      • Unit - Order Unknown Bellor the Guardian to Orc Far Seer - Chain Lightning AtkTarget

You change the string "Orc Far Seer - Chain Lightning" to the spell you started off slam.

    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.

    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.
