Before we do anything, we need to know what kind of power we are working with.

Open Eomer.ini and search for "PASSIVE OUTLAW LEADERSHIP".
In our case, the name is a dead giveaway, but other powers aren't always that predictable.

You will find the following code:
              
Code
;;; PASSIVE OUTLAW LEADERSHIP;;;
    Behavior = UnpauseSpecialPowerUpgrade ModuleTag_TheodenLeadership2
        SpecialPowerTemplate = SpecialAbilityFakeLeadership2
        TriggeredBy = Upgrade_EomerOutlawLeader
    End
    Behavior = SpecialPowerModule ModuleTag_TheodenLeadershipUpdate2
        SpecialPowerTemplate     = SpecialAbilityFakeLeadership2
        UpdateModuleStartsAttack = No
        StartsPaused = Yes
    End    
    Behavior = AttributeModifierAuraUpdate ModuleTag_Leadership2
        StartsActive    = No;If no, requires upgrade to turn on.
        BonusName        = EomerPassiveOutlawLeadership
        TriggeredBy        = Upgrade_EomerOutlawLeader
        RefreshDelay    = 2000
        Range            = 200
        AllowSelf        = Yes
        ObjectFilter    = ANY +CAVALRY +INFANTRY -STRUCTURE -BASE_FOUNDATION -DOZER
    End    


As you can see, this is a plain aura ability. It generates cash for each kill.

Nice tutorial.
Can you help me in something? I am new in the site and I want to create a new ability for create a hero archers. It would be a passive ability that increases the range and attack speed of the bow. I noticed that I can do it in weapon.ini and I tried creating a new weapon based on the CreateAHeroBasicRangedWeapon. As soon as the hero gets this new ability in game I want to update this CreateAHeroBasicRangedWeapon to my new weapon object . Is this even possible? Tried it in createaheroweaponupgrades.inc but the program don't really accept anything

I need some help with my project, I'm making a goblin create a hero, I have him in the Servant of sauron area and I need to add Mount/Dismount Scorpion & Toggle Weapon. If you could help me that would be great (I have a forum file in the BFME2/RTWK section the goblin one talking about adding the Goblin Fiend)

Thanks for the guide. But do you know how to convert the special power of Mount/Dismount into the power of Elven CaH Archer?
