What's up guys I'm trying to make a new spell that deals damage over time and when the unit dies, it spreads to nearby enemy units (Damage is based on attribute). Is there a way to make this possible or No? o_Oo_Oo_O

How I'd do it:

Modify Parasite to do the damage over time and spawn a dummy unit on death.
Have a trigger that fires when the dummy unit enters the map. Get the dummy unit's position, remove the dummy unit, and then infect nearby units with the modified parasite ability with dummy casters.
 
Yes, it is possible.
