"Merging" is an Item Power that was essentially removed from the game.

Effect Edit

A magical rod or accessory enchanted with "Merging" is theorized to allow the bearer to merge with the ground and resurface anywhere on the battlefield.

The Merging Ability is uniquely-associated with Great Wyrms.

As an Item Power it confers no benefits at all to Heroes.

Known Bugs Edit

Due either to game balance issues or the evident troubles implementing the ability itself, "Merging" was removed from the game by increasing its Spellbook Requirement to an impossible Icon Nature.png22. Perhaps the ability would have required the unique merging animation to have been recreated for each hero and would have thrown off other game data offsets.

Items With Merging Edit

There are two pre-defined items with this power: The Great Wand and Tammas Staff of Negation. They'll never appear in Treasure, ever, because the wizard needs to possess an impossible number of Icon Life.pngLife Books for this to happen. This follows the trend that the ranks needed for finding an item with a Power and enchanting an item with that Power seldom match up. Just so, "Merging" requires Icon Nature.png22 Nature Books to enchant through Create Artifact.

Moreover, not even the random Merchant petitioner will offer these two items. Merchants are treated as having Icon Life.png12 Icon Death.png12 Icon Chaos.png12 Icon Nature.png12 Icon Sorcery.png12, which means they could potentially sell you any of the 250 pre-defined items... except for these two.
