I want to make a spell....Its supposed to work like a Devour ability,but used by a Hero,on Heroes.So the unit should be devoured for 5 seconds,then released.I cant make it,cause when i make the basic unit spell,and change it to a hero spell,it wont find a target(i click on the enemy but nothing happens to be precise)

Help please!

yeah, then you should make a fully customed ability, the devour only works for small units in game.
the idea would be to Hide the Unit, Pause it, damage it over time and after the time you want, move it to the front of the Casting unit, and then Unhide it and Unpause it

if i use the hide - unhide trigger, how can i show the "devoured" unit in the center field of the "devouring" unit ingame?

is it this "cargo hold"? if yes, how can i find it, or how does it work?

:ugly:

no, by using the hide - unhide trigger you cant put the unit in the game interface, if its really necessary to show the HP of the victim, you could show a floating text over the casting unit until the victim dies, or is saved.

Using the "Devour" spell with the Cargo Hold ability worked nice,only a minor problem was that i couldnt set the duration.It lasts till the devoured unit or the caster dies,and cannot be canceled(so it seems).Is there a way to make the devour spell last,lets say,5 seconds(tried changing the duration fields,not working)

no, that spell doesnt has duration.
im just supposing, but i think that it would be able to make it get out of the devouring unit, by using Unit - Move (Instantly) to the front of the devouring unit or something... wanna try?
