Without knowing more I can't really help much.

I assume that your problem is that most area abilities don't stack with life steal (orb). Depending on what you're trying to do, you could alter unit's base attack area.

This would be easy using damage engine, but I won't go into that since you didn't want to use systems.

If you want damage based on the hero, give the hero a second attack with weapon type missile(splash) and enable it when the ability is used. You could also transform the hero to another unit with splash weapon type.

For lifesteal on more than one unit use vampiric potion.

i understand what youre tryin to say good sir, but i want it to be a passive life steal IE mask of death and the splash will be on another item, i think its inevitable to not use a system, if im going to use a system what is it? care to teach me good sir?

its good hahaha, it forces the unit to use the bear shift form, my only problem will be in here is i need to duplicate all of my range heroes but its ok atleast im doing a splash attack now thank you sir ezekiel and ohh is it ok if i put the bear form to a spell book, so that it wont appear on my hero skills?
