    My spell is done now.
    It should be leakless and I don't think it has any bugs other than 1 small graphical bug which I don't know how I should remove it.
    The bug is that when flying units is flying over raised terrain, but not at the top the like the the "picture" below shows the lightning doesn't hit the unit correctly, it comes beneath it.
    .........................__
    ......................X/....\
    ....................../.......\
    X=The flying unit

    If someone knows how to fix it then please say it.

    Update: I have added auto taunt to the ward which is easy to change (radius, interval and on/off)

    Update 2: It got 3 levels now, You now get exp and gold when units are killed by the ward, I have added a hotkey and I have fixed 3 small things.

    I do like your spell Reborn, but the thing is I don't know if this spell could fit in any game. I mean, maybe your trap could taunt the guys around him, or the ward's priority could be higher, so the spell could be more effective.

    If no one attacks the trap (if there are any other unit, they will attack the unit, not the trap.) the trap is useless. But I like the idea. Good work.

    Ya the idea is nice, but its useless, because in a AoS or a "player based game" no ass would attack the ward...

    I could add taunt to the ward, but I think that will be a little powerful. Maybe I add it tomorrow if I remember ^^.

    Oh, Oh.

    I sense Hindy skillz.

    I don't really excpect mine to be much good but we'll see.

    The idea that I can up with goes like this:

    A mine explodes, in a similar fashion to that of a goblin land mine.

    It knocksback nearby units.

    It also creates a group of secondary explosions in the area, but these don't knockback.

    So, I'm going to get to work.

    EDIT: Can we use a knockback system? I can't read the rules too well 'cause the resolution of THW is messed up on my comp.

    It would simplify my work a bunch.

    I was gonna choose between one of two things

    1. Resurrection Totem, when a unit dies in the proximity it will be resurrected, cooldown and defining conditions of what can and cannot be ressurected will be defined by the level of the ability

    2. Strength of Spirit, basically a ward, when units are in the proximity they recieve +X armor for each unit nearby (way to rip-off MTG), as well as a little attack boost, I haven't decided how the attack boosts would work, but I think I'll settle on +X for each for armor. The max amount of armor per unit will be defined by the level of cast (same for attack speed bonus)

    It seems like Hawk's spell is not based on only a small knockbacking. The spell itself is more complicated then that. So maybe knockback won't be a large-do-it-for-you system for this spell. It's gonna do some small jobs for the trap.

    I want a Poots opinion on this one. :p

    I can make my own, but it'll probably be GUI.
