    I am making a interact ability for my campaign. But it plays the spell cast animation of the caster when used. I want to make it instant like others. What to do ? Help plzz

    Use Channel ability. Among other things you need to set for the ability set "Follow through time" to -1.

    set no animation, 0 cast time and base it on some other spell if you see green around the icon before it casts
    or
    create a dummy unit at the position of the caster and let it cast that spell so you will just continue what you're doing (but it's more complicated if it's a hero ability)

    There is also the cast point of the unit.

    The casting time of a spell is <Cast Point of Caster> + <Casting Time of Ability>.

    Hmm, nice to know, cause I had problems with spells with 0 casting time but still delay before casting.
