Why are you using 5/ Life of trigering unit? Let's say you unit have 100 hp. It would heal all units around it by 5/100 = 0.05. It's not correct. If you want it to heal by 5% of the units health use :

  • Set SacrificeHeal[(Player number of (Owner of (Triggering unit)))] = ((Integer((Life of (Triggering unit) * 0.05))))
100 * 0.05 = 5

Any number * 1 = 100%, so:
for 50% use *0.50
for 5% use *0.05
for 0.5% use *0.005
and so on. Pretty simple.

To trigger one i guess it should be not cause trigg unit damage trigg unit, but set a variable, the 20/life and then set the life to life-var it should be better. I'll redo all your spells tomorrow i HOPE, but one suggestion. Never Use Begins Casting a Spell unless the spell is channeling. Use starts the effects of abil. Cause if begins, then i can click the spell and before the spell is cast (casting time) press stop and the spell runs. If i use starts the effects, it runs only when the spell IS cast. :)

"*"

How do i use that with the maths?
Can you create a quick trigger so i can find it :)

1st. Use a loop action for each Level. More flexible.

2nd. You leak really much. I can create this to u easy just give me some time. =)

EDIT: Here is the first one. Insert the things you need.
  • Sacrifice
    • Events
      • Unit - A unit Starts the effect of an ability
    • Conditions
      • (Ability being cast) Equal to Animate Dead
    • Actions
      • For each (Integer S_Loop) from 1 to 3, do (Actions)
        • Loop - Actions
          • If (All Conditions are True) then do (Then Actions) else do (Else Actions)
            • If - Conditions
              • (Level of Animate Dead for (Triggering unit)) Equal to S_Loop
            • Then - Actions
              • Set Sacrifice_Integer[(Player number of (Owner of (Triggering unit)))] = ((Integer((Life of (Triggering unit)))) / 5)
            • Else - Actions

The "*" is the symbol for multiplication.
When using Integer/Real functions when you click them (GUI) you most of the times
see a Value + 1 don't you? Well, just click the "+" and you get a drop list with +,- , x and /. In math, how we often use X as an variable in equations, they decided to use * instead of x.

I'm going to make an example, one second :)

Edit: Here it is. It's very simple, actually. But note the trigger that set the casters HP. You must use percentage, cause using "life of triggering unit * 0.95" won't work. I don't know why, but i think it's because that kind of multiplication isn't allowed as a life of a unit must be a integer.

Okay one problem soul,

to remove a % off a enemy unit.. would it be (life of triggering unit)/ 0.30
^^ and then deal that?

&&&&&
Your map, the spell sacrifice doesnt work.
:/

&

Set SacrificeHeal[(Player number of (Owner of (Triggering unit)))] = ((Integer((Life of (Triggering unit)))) x (Integer(0.25)))

doesnt work :/

Strange, the spell only works when the hero is under 1000hp. Guess mid-battle i missed it. Found the problem. Working on that.

Also, 0.25 is not a integer, it's a real, so you can't use it in integer functions ;p

Just realized two things: forgot that the unit group was picking the caster two (solved) and the percentage life, sadly, is based on unit's max hp, so it will get more complicated. (solving in a minute).

Edit: Also, you want the unit to be dmged equal to 5% of it's total hp, or it's current hp?

Edit2: Don't knew wich one, so i made both. Also, added a damage display :)

One thing tho..
when the floating text is displayed on how much a unit is healed.. it comes up with (for example 20% off 100) 20.00 , rather then 20.

know how i can change it ?
cheers

Just occured me that if you convert the real to a integer it will not display the .00. But i dunno what will happen with the real values that got any value after the "."
