    Hello,

    I went through your FAQ as I feel like this is probably a newbie question although I feel like I used to do this all the time in the old World Editor but I'm clearly doing something wrong now. I couldn't really find anything in the FAQ and tried to give your search function a go but without any luck.

    The issue:
    I used Storm Bolt to create a new custom ability and changed everything to what I wanted it to be.
    I used Sorceress to create a new custom unit and changed everything to what I wanted it to be.
    Now when I give the custom ability (Previously Storm Bolt) to my custom unit (Previously sorceress), it will be called Invisibility and have the invisbility icon instead of the attributes I gave it in the Abilities editor.

    Some things do work for it: Mana cost, stun duration and damage, but everything visual seems to be fall back to the ability Invisibility.

    What am I doing wrong?

    This seems strange. Please post a map showing this behavior. It sounds like the spell data is colliding in some way -- did you give it rawcode that is used by another spell in the map?

    Here you go. Btw it's with the new world editor for Reforged.

    I don't think I gave it a duplicate code?

    The ability is Frozen Spark. I've tried to change the missile and all other art to something crazy in an attempt to just see a difference but again without any luck.

    Hey just bumping in the hopes someone can help me out. This is a consistent issue I get it in every map I create, I'm clearly doing something wrong but I can't fathom what.

    I’m guessing it’s a Reforged bug that will be fixed. I don’t have the Reforged editor to be able to open your map to see.
