    'Aloc' - is the id of Locust ability.

    You can add that one via Object Editor, using units ability list feild (just add it from filter window).
    Or via triggers:
    • Custom script: call UnitAddAbility(udg_unit, 'Aloc')


    Via jass:
    call UnitAddAbility(u, 'Aloc')


    "udg_unit" or "u" determines unit, which locust ability should be added to.

    Event would be anything you want, Begining of Spell, Map Initialization, Periodic Events,...
    By the way, Locust ability prevents the unit from being clicked and selected and makes it invulnerable.

    And it's Locust, not Locus.

    You can add it in Object Editor, as an ability.

    Locust is normal ability, which you can add it to an unit in Object Editor - Unit (if you want your unit to have Locust in the beginning of the game).
    (You can't find it in Object Editor - Ability.)

    Locust is cool. It makes the best dummy for spells.

    It certainly does. But I think that, with "Inferno" spell, locust causes the ability to not work properly. Not sure, thought, but I think that there is an example in Defense of the Ancients: a Sorceress hero, I think.

    Look, you had three different answers for three different questions you haven't even included that you want them, but people were still willing to do that and explain it for you, not to mention the complete and full explanation and answer for your topic question.

    What else you want?
    Oh, and those tricks do not work in here. You have to be polite instead of a beggar.

    Lol locust is an ability you ain't needing any trigger (except adding them in middle of game).

    Okay. This is the last time I explain this to you, since we answered all your answers, and even more on top of that. Next question which triggers anything that we already explained to you will make me really angry, and maybe the moderator I will try to call with the report button.

    "Locust" is an ability in World Editor, which can actually be found in the Undead Abilities. What it does is that it makes a unit Unselectable, Invulnerable and Magic Immune, as long as the unit has that ability. Those units can still be modified with the Triggers. Locust ability can be added via Object Editor, as a normal ability in the field, or via triggers.
    • Custom script: call UnitAddAbility(udg_unit, 'Aloc')

    • Custom script: call UnitRemoveAbility(udg_unit, 'Aloc')


    Why is Locust useful? Well, it is used to "hide" dummy units that some spell use, or make it wear an aura and move it with a unit, effectively making that unit have the aura, but to not waste an icon slot.

    Is everything understandable now?

    I have learned all things by my self, when I knowed just one site (worldEditTut). And still I don't find anything new to me, except custom scripts. Witch I don't use even for today ^^ (cose I hate reading books of text). So its easiest way is to ask. I know its wrong thing, cose some kind of other newbie may be created same thread... And you all still runing to help them only for (+rep) so it's isn't theyr fault, cose they dont look for tutorials or threads with same problem it's yours!!!

    One more thing, Locust can't be added to unit in game time with triggers like "ADD ABILITY TO UNIT" cose Locust ability isn't simple ability witch could be find in ability list and edited. It's ability witch you couldn't add to unit in the game with triggers (maybe with custom scripts, or JASS...) So if he wants to add ability in game time its hard to him to find something by himself not asking us!

    @D0W3R,
    Locust can actually be found in the ability lists, but it hasn't got any parameters to edit. And asking for a solution of what we already explained - that's rude, by my opinion.

    Leave, blind man. Look at my post on previous page and on other responses (not to mention what Apheraz Lucent have just said) and make up your mind.
    Fight music anyone?
