I enter tower with strong bait team against emily/barb opponents. My bait team manages to kill Balog (yay!) then dies an honorable sacrificial death.
I bring in my A-team and my shade immediately possesses the dead Balog and runs for a few rounds till balog dies and returns to being Shade.
I have problems, so I retreat. I come back in, and the dead Balog is back, and is immediately resurrected by Emily.
When I retreated and came back in, the dead balog body was restored even though it had been possessed in a previous round.
Is this working as intended? Of course, its not likely I will be able to kill him again, or at least not easily.
EDIT: I came back in later with my Shade/Zomm team (same team as before) and Balog wasn't there but I couldn't defeat the Emily/Abi/Grog(taunting - tank rune) with this team because I couldn't trarget emily and each time I killed Grog Emily rezzed him - so I retreated and brought in a Solaris team to try to take them out, only now Balog is back again and is raised.
I'm confused! Only one more +3 level barb team after this and I -might- be able to finish the tower, but I can't get past this floor so far.
I think its just that my greater/superior runes are no longer a match for these over-level teams and my abilities like eat-brains stand no chance with those above level teams.
And my progress to improve my runes is greatly impeded by not being able to finish the tower. Catch-22.
