Hello again. I want to detect buff level but how I can do it?

For an example I have a spell and it has 4 levels and same buff ''slowed''. When I cast it if ability level is 1 then buff level is 1 too, ability level is 2 bufft then level is 2 etc...

But the problem is when I use ''Unit has spesific buff'' trigger it sees level1-2-3-4 buff is same thing. I don't want to create different buff for every level of ability so my question is simple: How I can detect level of buff?

You can't get the Buff level unfortunately. If you can figure out a way to find the Buff source then you could check their Ability level but at that point you might as well trigger the Aura system from scratch.

The easiest method is to have multiple Buff levels, I show how to make it work here:

well, even internally it seems buffs have a single level. The only thing that I noticed was that if your spell has multiple levels, the buff reflects that in the description when you mouse-over on that buff, but I found no way to get that information out of the buff.
Yea sadly this thing only works the way I said... I have to give different buff for every level of ability...

Here's a triggered Aura if you're interested in that:

For that kind of issue I usually create a dummy ability based on claws of attack, give it the appropriate number of levels, and add it/remove it when the spell is cast on a target, this way you can easily retrieve "level of ability for unit" as an integer
