Units that come back with immortality don't lose magic paths. Immortal pretenders that die for real and are called back lose paths like a non immortal god would. Not sure how long it takes for immortals to recover afllictions, but I think there's a greater chnace of it happening when they come back to life.

Master lich is OK as almost-rainbow with high domscore. Phoenix is pure fun with his built-in Phoenix pyre.

It's not really a question of "how long" for affliction recovery since it's not a static number.

If I recall properly there is a priority order for afflictions, and each has a certain percentage chance of being healed when you have a successful healing attempt. If the first affliction on your list doesn't heal the next one on the list will get a check, and so on down the list until you run out of afflictions to check or you have something heal successfully.

I believe immortals have a 100% heal chance each turn, but stuff like arco priestesses and fairy queens have a lesser shot at it, which then only gets you a CHANCE to try to heal your affliction. IIRC Never-healing wound only has a 10% chance to be healed by a successful healing attempt (It's the lowest chance wound), so if you have a 20-skill healer you only really have a 2% chance each turn for it to be healed successfully if it's your last affliction.

Hope that helps.

I was under the impression that my Arco healers (and others) had never healed any "never healing wounds", and that "never healing" implied "never healable" too --- but perhaps your percentages explain.

Also, as I understand it, if an affliction arises as a result of Old Age, it is unhealable (possibly Chalice aside).

Chalice and gift of health get around old-age and undead status.

Sort of back on topic, I know that empowered magic paths on immortal non-pretender commanders are lost when they die. I strongly suspect the same is true of immortal commanders. But, I don't recall ever being in that situation.

thanks guys. i do know(from very little testing) that immortals do NOT automatically heal afflictions. if i get some time to mess around with it and find anything out, i'll let you know.

thanks again for all the help!

Parone, immortality gets you a "free" check each turn to heal afflictions, but the actually affliction must pass its heal check to be removed iirc.
