Firebirds and Phoenixes are level 7 creatures of Conflux town. They are recruited from the Pyre.

"Firebirds are worldly manifestations of creatures from the elemental plane of fire. These magnificent beasts are as quick as fire itself and immune to spells of the same nature. Phoenixes, the more powerful incarnation of the Firebird, can resurrect some of its number from the ashes of its own demise." AB manual

Although Firebirds and Phoenixes are immune to fire magic, they are not unaffected by fire-based creature attacks. For example Magogs' fireball attack or Dragons' breath attacks are not considered to be magical and therefore they do harm Firebirds and Phoenixes.

Rebirth special ability[edit]

Rebirth is a special ability of Phoenixes. It causes part of them to "rise from the ashes" if the whole stack is killed. The effect is similar to Resurrection spell, and it is permanent. The ability works only once per combat per stack.

Every Phoenix in the stack increases the chance to one of them to be reborn by +20%, but no more than one unit per a group of five Phoenixes may be reborn. In other words, one Phoenix will have a 20% chance to raise one unit with rebirth ability, three Phoenixes will have 60% chance to raise one unit, and 6 Phoenixes have 100% chance (always) to raise one unit with a 20% chance of raising a second.
