    Hi guys!
    First post,
    i'm just mucking around with the world editor.
    and i'm trying to make a combo happen;

    Skill 1
    (searing arrows used as a melee) called Attack

    Skill 2
    Same as above, but called Special Attack.

    Hero uses Attack (Skill 1) twice, then casts Special Attack (Skill 2). and causes a thunderclap from the hero at it's location.

    How would i be able to trigger this?

    Thanks for the help :)

    P.S sorry, my forums skills aren't very good.

    you use a variable to count the times Skill 1 is cast, for skill 2 you use only a dummy skill, and when it is cast, check via triggers if the Skill 1-counter is equal to 2 and then give the thunderclap ability to your hero (hidden slot) and order him to cast it. then reset the counter and remove the ability afterwards.

    this is just a basic idea and may require some polishing. you probably want to track the variable and reset it also after a given time maybe? also if skill 2 costs mana and has a cooldown, it will still use the mana and go into cooldown even if the counter is not equal to 2.

    maybe provide some more information around that

    Okay.
    i think i definitely need to take a step back and understand triggering and all it's words.
    I've just guessed it all these years.
    I really appreciate your post though, i have an idea of what your talking about, but probably couldn't put it together.
    Regular triggering is GUI right?
