will this auto adjust the damage dealt by my caster?, and yes 15 x heros int, because i find 5 x heroes int kinda weak on later enemies, which is 50k HP per enemy unit...

yes, that will adjust the damage automatically, i use level of the ability x intelligence, so when the frost nova is level 1, 1 x int, level 2, 2 x int.

since the last one is 15 x int, then that won't work anymore. this is the new one

But for this situation recommended as it removes ability level from coupling to the implementation. Using an array for the intelligence multiplier will allow the same code to be used for any number of levels with no required correlation between levels and their intelligence multiplier.
