How does the orb of slow ability work?
I tried giving the ability to a unit and changed the ability cast from slow to frost nova and chain lightening.
I also changed the percent proc to 90%

However, that unit only cast the spell maybe once every 40 hits.

Am I doing something wrong or is there something I need to be weary about.

Does the Frost Nova/Chain lightning have a mana cost? Did you change the abilities accordingly to follow the format on normal orb effects?

And how did you manage to give 2 abilities to one orb? Orb effects do not stack, by the way.

Other than that, I don't know any other intrinsic things about orbs. Perhaps there is a built in procs per minute kind of thing?

maybe post a screenshot of your object editor so it might become clear whats your problem, and maybe try using orb of lightning instead, thats the one i use and it works. another thing might be that the effect only works when the units is ordered to attack
