basicly, i wanted it be a thunder strike that calls down 3 lightnings, each one with more AoE but less damage.
Unfortunally, it seems all of them are called down at the same moment, instead of being zap-zap-zap.

Any idea on how to fix it ?

You basically can't do that.

well that kind of makes me sad.
thanks though.

If i give each spell an AoE of 1 or a single target impact, would it trigger exactly one lightning bolt x3, so 3 bolts at the same time ?

How exactly does precision with next spells work ?
Is each sub-spells precision actually of importance or do the sub-spells always hit what the initial spell did hit ?

They land exactly where the triggering spell landed. They aren't fired by the mage.

If you want three bolts landing in different places with the same strength, just have the original spell have an invisible flyspr with a longer animation time and lower the prec.
