    You leave a lot up to the imagination with that description.

    Anyway, try this. I just took NightskyAuraora's Meat Hook map and added an Autocast ability to it. It's basically Pudge's Meat Hook from DotA but it can be autocasted like the Slow ability. Give credits to NightSkyAurora if you use it.

    To import it you'll want to copy and paste the Meathook folder, Unit Indexer folder, and the Autocast Meathook trigger into your map. Plus you'll need the dummy unit and the Autocast Ability/Buff from the Object Editor.

    Note that I used the Slow ability to autocast the meat hook. Which means that you can only target units with the ability. There aren't any Autocast abilities that target Points so you're stuck with targeting Units. If you want the ability to be able to target both Points and Units I'd have to trigger some kind of special Autocasting system.

    Bad news, I can't open it. so I will try with what you say.
    You used a trigger with event : < a unit cast slow ability >
    and with action : < order casting unit cast meat hook on target of slow ability >
    yeah?

    I wish you guys would update Warcraft 3 :p
    Every time I try to help someone, "I can't open the map." But I understand, a lot of things stop working when you update.

    Anyway, I didn't order the unit to cast another ability. I just changed the condition for the "ability being cast" to be the Autocast version. I would have to see how your Meat Hook ability is triggered to help you make it work properly. But basically, if your Meat Hook ability can only target points then just set the point to be the position of the target unit of ability being cast.
