Can combat manuals be merged onto an unit?
After the update that introduced combat manuals, I started turning lots of my heroes into Combat Manuals.
I did go to the merge screen and simulated merging a manual onto a hero, and it seemed that it would work.
Is it really that way? I was sure I read somewhere they would not be usable for merging purposes.
I'm afraid that that is a bug or some unexpected behavior, and if they remove that possibility... Well... just so many of my GHB units will be abandoned forever.
From the in-game help on Combat Manuals (emphasis added):
"In places where you might use an ally, such as Merge Allies or Inherit Skill, you can use a combat manual instead."
So, I'm fairly certain that it is supposed to work that way, since if it did not, combat manuals would be less useful for cleaning up your barracks.
