I need a trigger or something to "delay" mana replenish/spirit touch.
Meaning:Hero casts "mana replenish/spirit touch" and after x seconds he will recover x mana to himself.
Hero can move, but some abilities and attack will be disabled while he waits for mana to come.
Hero can only use move, patrol and hold position.

It would be great if hero could play a certain animation during the wait, even when moving, if that is possible.
It can be based on any instant ability I guess.

p.s.:my wc3 is currently dead so I won't really know if the trigger will work, so I can wait.

Edit:Hero can't drop items during the wait and can't activate "defend".

You have to specify which ability(es) doesn't get affected.

If I just attach SFX to the unit, is this acceptable ?

Does the cooldown of the spell > time taken for the spell to take effect ?

This is how far I got:

-Event
Unit starts effect of ability
-Condition
Ability cast=DelayedMana
-Action
local unit udg_u
set u = triggering unit
order NeutrAlallseeingDummyInTheCornerOfTheMap to Soul Burn/DrunHaze u
remove "defend" from u
remove "sorm bolt" from u
Wait 5 sec
set u's mana to 100%
add "defend" to u
add "storm bolt" to u

According to rullerofiron99 this is MUI and correct.(my wc3 is still dead so I can't test it)

You have to specify which ability(es) doesn't get affected.

They will be removed and added again.

Close enough I guess.

Does the cooldown of the spell > time taken for the spell to take effect ?

cooldown=5 sec, wait=5 sec.When you activate the ability it goes to cooldown, so when it's ready to be used again, you gain mana (can't be used if mana is full)[ability is not silenced so you can see it ticking]
