[Trigger] help with incinerate efect

can someone help me to do that:

the area damage of the incinerate detonation is a percentage of the intelligence of the hero who applied the spell

I've tried it on my own but I'm not very good at programming that :goblin_cry:

I did things like this::

  • Unit - Cause (Triggering unit) to damage circular area after 0.00 seconds of radius 300.00 at (Position of (Target unit of ability being cast)), dealing (1.00 x (Real ((Intelligence of (Triggering unit) (Include bonuses)) ))) damage of attack type Magic and damage type Fire

  • Nameless Trigger 013
    • Events
      • Unit - A unit Die
    • Terms
      • ((Triggering unit) has buff Spontaneous Combustion) Equal to True
    • Actions
      • Unit Group - Pick every unit in (Units within 200.00 of (Position of (Triggering unit))) and do (Actions)
        • Loop: Actions
          • If (All Conditions are True) then do (Then Actions) else do (Else Actions)
            • Yes: Conditions
              • ((Picked unit) belongs to an ally of (Triggering player)) Equal to False
            • Then: Actions
              • Unit Group - Remove (Picked unit) from (Last created unit group)
            • Others: Actions
              • Unit - Cause Aurolette 0140 <gen> to damage (Picked unit), dealing (0.15 x (Percentage life of (Triggering unit))) damage of attack type Magic and damage type Fire

But I can't make it work and I don't know where I'm making mistakes.

Help me! :goblin_boom:
and sorry if my english is very bad

When units die their buffs are removed, so unfortunately you can't use that Condition here.

Hopefully this can help you: Confused with a spell

Also, I attached a map I made that has a Stacking Attack Damage ability. It's similar to Incinerate but not exactly what you need.
Maybe it can help you get started.

Since buff disappear when a unit dies, but appartenance to a unit group doesn't, I would 1) create a unit group (unit_group_buff) to include the units when they get the buff/are targeted by ability 2) check every second if units in unit_group_buff have the buff, otherwise remove them 3) change the condition of your trigger to "unit belongs to unit_group_buff"
