spirits are completely recyclable, very exploitable bug

While playing the new 'Heart of gold campaign', I noticed that I could reuse spirits in the spirit chamber indefinitely: so basically in ever level I had 1-2 high leveled spirits and I could make my whole army level 10 in a matter of minutes. I would drop the spirit on the the unit standing on the pedestal and it would give the usual effect: leveling up the unit and if it reaches 10 it goes off the pedestal. But the spirit would not disappear and instead just stayed next to the pedestal. I could repeat this as much as I wanted.

And the first one it did no happen only because I didn't use spirits that level.

I'm playing that mission where you have to protect another underlord from dwarves, where they give you beast masters for the first time. I made two spirits in the torture chamber to scout the area, and after some I noticed that they are still there. Before the patch they had a limited life time, but now they exist infinitely. I suppose it's a part of this bug too.

That is supposed to be the case. They remove the damage over time for spirits and made them go through doors now. So that part is not a bug.

It's not a bug, it was intentionally changed to make them more useful (at least that's how I perceived it) as before they did not last long and didn't contribute much during their original lifespan.

Btw how can I get rid of spirits if they are immortal and invisible? I mean levels where you can't convert them to exp. Can't even drop them to portal.

You should be able to drop them in a portal as far as I know
