Unburrow removing immortal status, but not the icon. http://elementscommunity.org/forum/index.php?topic=1931.msg16718#msg16718

I've used Quintessence on an Elite shrieker, and in the opponent's turn it got poisoned. Yes, immortalizing preceded poisoning. One possible cause of this glitch could have been that just after immortalizing and before poisoning, I've accidentally burrowed the shrieker. After I've unburrowed it, checked some other website, and when I got back, it already had the poison counter. Anyone has ever experienced similar things?

Maybe immortalizing+burrow=disimmortalizing?

Let me guess... Was this in a PvP match?

Might perhaps be that unburrowing made it targetable again? If this wasn't pvp, that is...

No PvP! It was against the halfblood Shadtis.
And no, burrow did not disimmortalized the creature.
Successive screenshots below:.
Unfortunately the burrow/unburrow was not captured.

Maybe the immortal symbol stays there but the unmaterialization happens? Graphic bug?

That was what I meant, though it would be a functional bug, not graphical. Unburrowing shouldn't make the critter targetable if it is immaterial.

Actually yes, I'm pretty sure that's what happened. Burrow is exactly the same as immaterial status, but it is temporary. When you burrowed the Shrieker, the temporary immaterial status was applied to replace the permanent immaterial status. So when you unburrowed your Shrieker, the status was lifted and the immaterial status was lifted. This is pure speculation on my part based on my understanding of the mechanics behind the two status effects.

From what I've encountered, almost all of these glitches happen in pvp, not against AI, which comes down to a desync issue with pvp clients. Probably your use of quintessence didn't register for the other client. The game is especially buggy this way.

Look at the screenshots. He wasn't playing a PvP game, but against the level 5 AI called Shadtis.

jmizzle7, you're right. Indeed that is what's happening. I've tested it in the trainer:
turn 1: summon Shrieker
turn 2: unburrow it and apply Quintessence
turn 3: burrow it
turn 4: unburrow it
turn 4.5: AI immediately froze the creature, even if there is a second, 'naive' Shrieker around (as the screenshot shows).
