So I've tried doing a timer thing using variable and the wait block and in my mind it works perfectly and I do not see the reason why this wouldn't work. Any idea ?

first of all, where do you want to put the procedure on

because using NBTs for Items Blocks Entities is easier

Basically I'm trying to spawn a lighting, then wait like... about 3 seconds and spawn 7 lightings in quick succession. I didn't have a problem doing that but the 7 lighting in quick succession went instantly instead so I tried doing a timer (Also to learn how to do timers) and you know the rest.

Dropping an item is the trigger. I also want to try with right clicking a block and triggering when doing a command. (All separated, it's just to learn different things)

Just saying that everything works perfectly. I'd like to know the timer in itself so I can use the knowledge and try to put it on other things if possible.

use NBTs and not Global Variables as it won't work on mulitplayer

 also don't use the Wait block, it is full of bugs, basically your procedure should be

When Player Right Clicks Block Trigger

if Get Block NBT Number Tag Timer NOT_EQUAL (NUMBER_OF_TICKS_IT_TAKES)

do Repeat (Number of ticks it will take) times

set Block NBT Number Tag Timer to Get Block NBT Number Tag Timer + 1

else if Get Block NBT Number Tag Timer = NUMBER_OF_TICKS

 do strike lightning at X Y Z

this will make it so when you right click your custom block, it wait some ticks to strike lightning

Ok but that's just right clicking a block. What about dropping items and doing a chat command ?

dropping item I am not sure since a dropped item is an entity and not an item

for command put the NBT to fit on the player aka entity

also forgot to put it on the procedure, after strike lightning put a block Set block NBT Number Tag Timer = 0
