    So I want to create an ability that when pressed goes on cooldown and it triggers something else. But it always gives me the original abilities buff even though I removed "Stats - buffs".

    Yeah, buffs are a weird thing. I'm assuming that you're using berserk or something that doesn't interrupt orders. So what you could do is just remove the specific buff from the unit when it casts the ability. I think the action is something like
    Unit - Remove specific buff from unit

    I tried that ,and it only works if I use wait. If it's instant then it won't remove the buff :/ (Yes I used berserk)

    Do you want to remove the buff (Effect) or just that special effect ?

    I removed the special effect. I want to remove the buff (At the bottom of the screen), or even better to make it so that it never appears. Tried to make Wait 0.01 and then remove it but it still appears and is noticeable

    What about remove this buff inside the OE, Spell - buff [remove the buff) this could work without triggers

    If OE=Object editor.

    I set this in Abilities, and in Buffs/Effects I can't remove the original berserk.

    I seem to have found a soluton.

    Setting the duration to 0.01 makes it so that the buff icon doesn't appear, not even for that 0.01 (I guess it's too fast). I will update this comment if I bump into any other problems regarding this

    When you removed the buff with that trigger, did you use the event "A unit starts the effect of an ability"?

    I know I am using a trigger like this for one ability that is based off mana shield (Instantly removes the mana shield when you activate it).

    Anyway, 0.01 second duration is a good way to fix this sort of thing, anyway.
