Default Question regarding immortality

Hi everyone,

as the title says, I have a question regarding immortal units.

If such a unit dies by retreating into a hostile province, does the immotal ability work or does the unit have to die in combat?

And in case it works, must the dominion in the province the unit tried to retreat to be friendly for the unit to be ressurected or is the dominion of the province from which the unit retreated the deciding factor?

I think the unit has to die in combat. I had a phoenix that was scared off by fear spam, and didn't reappear in my capital next turn.

As said above: if the immortal unit is caught without lines of retreat, it dies.

So if you're playing LA Ulm, make sure you have lines of retreat always (or just have the counts die in combat so they respawn, Lammashatas+Attack Rear, or Lammashatas+Shadow Blast+attack rear, or if you have an army of immortals, Sabbath Slave+Shadow Blasts+attack rear, with mages to cast army buffs for them and masters casting Darkness/self-buffs).

Similarly, when you attack an enemy capital with a large army, make sure you're not bottlenecking it with a one province escape route easily close ( ).

Or, if you`re playing glamour/stealth nation - you can set up an ambush in that single province...
