@Gruntled-Employee I agree with this, Massively. Homing Skulls sounds like a splendid idea, as long as it not able to do superb amounts of damage and the skulls are laughing as they fly.
OK I found a video someone recorded in playing Wizard Wars HL mod with bots. Remember the mod was designed initially to be a fantasy version of Team Fortress Classic.
Here's the part of the necromancer using the homing skull attack: https://youtu.be/YBV056QZ4S8?t=6m56s
I remember trying to animate the FPS view mode for that spell, had to do some weird workarounds to get the chattering skull animated properly.
In case anyone is interested, here's another video I found showing all the different classes/spells in the game, the guy did a great walkthrough, and explanation of everything https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p4kqHXLY6W4
