    Engineering Upgrade? Or just giving the alternate Hero form different spells?

    Usually we just end up creating a "dummy" ability for the icon & tooltip & such, with the Phoenix Fire ability being added via triggers & leveled appropriately... In a 'no-triggers' Contest, I might argue that's a serious enough issue to warrant picking another ability, but meh...

    Nice choices of skills, didn't expect one of them to be phoenix fire, there's metamorphosis, which I easily found out, you have pocket factory like everyone else, very nice.

    When does the voting start?
    I already got an idea for a new fun little friendly challenge that is very different from this one.

    Engineering Upgrade is permanent effect, which was bad for my hero. I needed a way to switch between 2 stances (2 units with different spell set). Tried morph spells but that didn't work either.


    Yep, I know its fixable with triggers but I can't do that. As far as I know, there is no way of making Phoenix Fire ability itself to show up. I guess I can't help it.

    So, question, how bad will that affect my hero? I must change it? or can I leave it be and just lose some points in the judging?

    Imo you can give it an icon via triggers. The spell itself doesn't work with triggers, it's just so you can have an icon for it so no harm is done.

    I dont know, but what happens with a transform-heroability(metamorphose/robogoblin), who has a Engineerring upgrade as basicability? Can this work? Or not?
