    @ Jadegolem: don't double post (and remove leaks, please ^^)

    Erm...
    So you've got a neutral passive "tree fella" (I guess it's a shop).
    You give him the ability "reveal", which a player can activate.
    Then, at the place where the player uses reveal, the spell "force of nature" should be cast?

    Maybe this works:
    • Events
      • Unit - A unit Begins casting an ability
    • Conditions
      • (Ability being cast) Equal to Reveal
    • Events
      • Set TempLoc = (Target point of ability being cast)
      • Unit - Order (Casting unit) to Night Elf Keeper Of The Grove - Force Of Nature TempLoc
      • Custom script: call RemoveLocation (udg_TempLoc)


    Give the shop the ability Force of Nature (of course), with a range across the whole map.

    He wants a neutral building that anyone who come near it can use the building ability, that in this case is "Force of Nature".

    He is using goblin workshop as an example because you can use it "Reveal" when you come near it.
    He tried making it but couldn't in the object editor, so he is asking for help.

    Saishy, who understand what newbies says...

    What he is trying to say is:

    He got a unit(Tree fella). He can cast the spell force of nature.

    Force of nature should have the same effect as Reveal(Goblin Lab).

    Last; He wants the unit(Tree fella) to be a structure.


    All I can say is. It doesn't need triggers all you need is the object editor. Although giving force of nature the reveal effect probably requires a trigger.

    Mh I think you need triggers because normal force of nature would spawn the treants for the caster so for neutral passive... wouldn't it?

    it certainly needs triggers but the largest part is done in object editor.

    Triggers would be for cancelling the force of nature effect and using reveal on that spot

    He basically wants to be able to allow players to access a shop and be able to cast Force of Nature from the shop. I think all you need to do is keep the shop the way it is but give it that extra ability and players should be able to click on the shop and use Force of Nature at will.

    I accidently did something similar to this in Dark Sun RPG, the main leader at the final outpost that you could purchase mercenaries from also had an ability that he used against enemies in the base, players could cast his ability, therefore exploiting him and causing him to attack enemies the player chose.
