    Just a quick q that could probally be solved quickly, i got a script that when done adds cleaving attack to my unit but the cleaving attack does not seem to work, the enemies are all huddled up, i changed the spells range to 500 but only the one target takes damage, is it because the ability was gotten from a neutral hostile that i have to change it abit?

    Cleaving attack is melee only, you want another spell, like the fire orb spell.

    Cleaving attack is for melee unit only, indeed. And also, cleaving attack doesn't function properly if there is Incinerate-based ability on the same unit.

    What is that specific unit that you add cleaving attack to?

    use fire orb ability instead of incinerate, since incinerate can add damage over time and splash on death where you can just add 0 damage for fire orb and get splash on hit. One more bonus of using fire orb, you can use this for both range and melee. Just remember to remove the damage and the model file, so you do not see the orb.

    For ranged you can use spill distance.
