    I'm trying to give to the spell blizzard a 2s cast time.
    But the spell simply ignore anything in the field "Casting Time"

    Any idea?

    (Actually, I just need a area damage spell that deals damage to anything in the area)

    Blizzard is channeling, so casting time wont, for some reason, not work. Use flamestrike/silence/cluster rockets or anything else instead. If you want to make a blizzard spell with casting time... I would use cluster rockets, and give very high Missile arc... don't know...

    wouldnt that delay all rockets for 2 seconds? meaning the hero could move away and the "rockets" would still deal damage in the AoE for 2 seconds afterwards :p

    Well, blizzard have a casting time, its 1s. Can't be changed in the editor :(

    I'm using it with a dummy caster and polledwait2 vexorian function.

    Can't use the others spell said here because of another issues.
    Thanks anyway!
