I have made one ability so when i attack i have a 25% chance to call down a meteor that deals 50 damage and be stunned for 1.5 seconds in an 300 aoe (based on inferno skill without inferno and dealing str x2 to target attacked unit.
these are my triggers.

ALRIGHT, I'll be the one to say it. Your trigger leaks.
Since it's just a unit attack responce, the wait and the leak are gonna hurt your gameplay, the wait won't work and the leak will lag your game. This is what I propose: I have 4 simple steps to making a fine ability with the proper delay, and AOE damage.

Step 1: Make the dummy

Step 2: Make the Ability

Step 3: Add the Abilitys

Step 4: Make the Trigger
