Storm Bolt trigger not working

Hello, I'm trying to make a trigger for the ability "Storm Bolt", but I can't seem to get it to work.
It's supposed to have the mountain king being able to detect when a hero drops below a certain amount of health, and then storm bolt them.
But instead he just throws storm bolts at anything at full health and even at random footmen.

Thanks for help!

I have three abilities now that doesn't work properly, they all have in common that they trigger when something is attacked, but it doesn't seem like they check for conditions. Not sure what I'm doing wrong
 
This doesn't work either, he keeps storm bolting random units, not heros.

Why do you learn the ability every 0.1 seconds?

Could it be that other triggers mess with this one?

Both of these versions work perfectly fine for me:
Trigger:
  • StormBolt
    • Events
      • Unit - A unit Is attacked
    • Conditions
      • (Attacking unit) Equal to Mountain King 0000 <gen>
      • ((Triggering unit) is A Hero) Equal to True
      • ((Triggering unit) belongs to an enemy of (Owner of Mountain King 0000 <gen>)) Equal to True
    • Actions
      • If (All Conditions are True) then do (Then Actions) else do (Else Actions)
        • If - Conditions
          • (Life of (Triggering unit)) Less than or equal to 350.00
        • Then - Actions
          • Unit - Order Mountain King 0000 <gen> to Human Mountain King - Storm Bolt (Triggering unit)
        • Else - Actions


Trigger:
  • StormBolt
    • Events
      • Time - Every 0.75 seconds of game time
    • Conditions
    • Actions
      • Unit Group - Pick every unit in (Units within 512.00 of (Position of Mountain King 0000 <gen>) matching ((((Matching unit) is A Hero) Equal to True) and ((((Matching unit) is alive) Equal to True) and ((Life of (Matching unit)) Less than or equal to 300.00)))) and do (Actions)
        • Loop - Actions
          • Unit - Order Mountain King 0000 <gen> to Human Mountain King - Storm Bolt (Picked unit)

That was just so he levels the ability to do maximum damage all the time
I don't think other triggers are messing with it, I've checked everything. Maybe it could be because of memory leaks? Not sure if that's possible.
In your first trigger, why is
  • (Life of (Triggering unit)) Less than or equal to 350.00

    In a seperate condition?
    And what's the difference of the triggering and attacking unit in "a unit is attacked" event?
    Just trying to understand, quite new to map making x)
 
I've been working on a better one, but he keeps storm bolting full life heros, and random ghouls for a reason I don't understand

Memory leaks will only make your map lag after some time. Its thrown away memory (RAM) that can no longer be used until the game is over. They have no effect on what will actually happen during the game.

There is no real reason why I put the condition for the life-value into a separate condition. The trigger looked different at first and then I gradually changed it to test a few things.

It is always recommended to use "triggering unit" whenever possible. The "triggering unit" variable is local to each invocation of a trigger and can not be overwritten. All other variables are globals which might be overwritten when you use a "wait" action or call a different trigger directly.



In your latest trigger try to change
Trigger:
  • (Percentage life of (Attacked unit)) Less than 30.00

to
Trigger:
  • (Percentage life of (Attacked unit)) Less than 0.30

because 100% is 1.0 and 30% is 0.3.

By the way, this
Trigger:
  • (Attacked unit) Not equal to Unit_MountainKing

is also a pretty useless line of code.
And you may also want to test whether the mana of the mountain king is greater than OR EQUAL to 75. Otherwise you would need at least 76 mana to use Storm Bolt which is probably not what you want.
 
Oh, but he storm bolts alright, so I don't think it's a problem with the mana.
And
  • (Attacked unit) Not equal to Unit_MountainKing

    Is to make sure he doesn't target himself with it.

    After changing that, he completely ignores heros with low hp, letting one run right pass him and then he storm bolted a ghoul again. Hahah. Stupid mountain king.

Are you sure this is true? Because I have another trigger that makes enemy hero units run away once they're below 30% life, and that works well

    it is not that power consumption went up it was available capacity went down with power plants freezing

    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

    Why the fuck didn't they fix this ten years ago when it happened?

    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.

    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...

    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....

    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.

    still no water I cannot remember when I last showered now I know how they felt in the old west lol

    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

    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

    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.

    Almost as if he was saying "screw you guys, I'm going home"
