Submitted by Rheiko
This bundle is marked as approved. It works and satisfies the submission rules.
Hello there, spell section. It's been a long time since my last spell uploaded here.
enjoy ~


Description:
The Warden throws her five magical daggers forward, damaging enemies in their path and slowing them down by 50% for 3 seconds. The daggers will stay on the ground temporarily, they will return to the Warden after 3 seconds and dealing damage on their way back.

Level 1 - Deals 50 damage per dagger.
Level 2 - Deals 75 damage per dagger.
Level 3 - Deals 100 damage per dagger.

Now I can finally sleep in peace.
Do tell me if I missed something or if I did something wrong.

Cheers ~

Awesome spell concept! Needs Fixed Nothing Suggestions You should always add attachment point configurables for every special effect configurable. Some special effects won't always work for the same attachment point. Attack type and damage type...

    Nice. I would maybe slightly decrease the moving speed as personal config, and decrease quite some start-offset (is 100, but not configurable atm). For some performance boost you maybe could create only 1 dummy caster, I think you even made one tutorial about it. ;p I like you seperated 1st and 2nd damage.

    I actually created 1 dummy caster at first, I dunno why I changed it to that. I was half asleep while making this. :xxd:
    I never thought the start offset matter, I will add it to the configuration later.

    Because I think it is kinda OP if I leave it with my default settings. :p

    Thanks for the feedback, appreciate it!

    Edit: Updated!
    I forgot to put the version next to the spell's name the moment I uploaded this and since it's just a minor update, I think it's fine as v1.0 for now.
    DummyCast is only created on init now.
    Added StartOffset configuration.

    Cheers ~

    I feel like the missles should come back to the warden much sooner, they seem to come back after 5 seconds which seems too long to me but thats just me.

    They're configurable, The Panda :p most of the time, the state of the spell you see when it is uploaded just has arbitrary values.

    I'm pretty sure the delay only takes 3 seconds. But as Killcide said, it's configurable. Change it to your liking. ~

    Thanks!

    Just a small suggestion with the spell:

    Why not play the spell animation for when the missiles return?

    Because in my imagination, the daggers automatically return to the caster. It is magical, after all. So there is no need for a sign or anything to make them return. That's why I didn't make the caster play spell animation when they return.

    I like the idea, though. I'll consider it.

    A late reply, but I would like to clarify what I had thought...

    Upon the daggers reaching the Warden, the Warden optionally plays the spell animation.

    Awesome spell concept!

    Needs Fixed

    • Nothing

    Suggestions

    • You should always add attachment point configurables for every special effect configurable. Some special effects won't always work for the same attachment point.
    • Attack type and damage type should be configurable
    • When you preload the dummy units, you're using their data from the Object Editor rather than the variables.
    • I'd make the periodic timer into a variable. Since you use the value 0.03 in main code, the spooky math will break if the user decides to change just the periodic timer.
    • That deallocation block looks DISGUSTING ! You should seriously consider Linked List :p

    Cool spell, but the dummy units should be linked to variables from the start. It's annoying to search the unit in the unit editor for each reference.

    Please explain what you meant by "dummy untis should be linked to variables from the start."

    Maybe he meant that the dummy unit type should be easily configurable for users.

    I checked the code and it's already available in the Init trigger.
