    If you're using the Channel ability, the first "Data" field is "Base order ID"

    Only Channel ability (and Spellbook) allows changing Base Order ID.

    Because Multishot isn't Channel ability, therefore, you can't change the Base Order ID of Multishot. You can only change Base Order ID on Channel ability.

    Remember: Base order ID and Text Order String isn't the same thing, these are different data values. Channel allows modificating both. The rest of the abilities only allows modificating the Text Order String, but the Base Order ID is bound to the ability, so, doesn't allow modifications.

    Ok...

    MultiShot and CrossFire are both custom abilities based on Carrion Swarm. The order String doesn't matter... Since "Both" are "Modified copies" of Carrion Swarm, they both share the Base order ID, and that causes malfunctions.

    The ONLY way to have both abilities on your unit is basing one of them in a different ability. Means changing the base ability of one of those. To change the Base ability of one of them, you have to create a custom copy of one of the game skills and base the effect of the skill in that ability.

    Base one of them off Crushing Wave instead. Exactly the same spell as Carrion Swarm.

    You just need an ability that allows you to target a unit or the ground in order the start the triggered effect. For that you can use ANY ability that allows casting on both, ground and terrain... like Crushing Wave, as Teelo said... That ability will, by default, have a different Base Order ID and different Text ORder String than Carrion Swarm, so, it won't cause any problem.

    You can also use CHANNEL ability, since it allows No target / Unit Target / Point Target / Unit & Point Target. Just be sure to change the "Base order ID" of Channel Ability to any ability the hero won't ever have (wispharvest for example).

    Remember that when you change the base ability, you'll have to modify the base ability in the trigger aswell. (The ability that triggers the trigger :p)

    LOL xD Crushing Wave doesn't work. It's hardcoded to work based on Carrion Swarm.

    Even changing the Text Order String makes the hero cast both.

    EDIT: You can use Breath of Fire as a base ability...

    Remember, you can ALWAYS use Channel as a base ability for any triggered effect, as long as you configure it correctly :)

    I don't know... seems like a common 12yo dumb in triggering and stuff... So far, I still feel like I've been there.
