Think about it. How careful would immortals have to be to not lose any appendages during centuries or millenia of existence? These beings regularly engage in sword fights, fall off buildings, in addition to all the other mundane accidents that happen to normal people. Methos should have looked like a quadruple amputee by now. Yet Xavier Saintcloud is the only immortal we saw with a severed limb from his previous battle with Duncan, and every single immortal we've seen has all their limbs and body parts intact. In one episode Amanda was joking with Duncan that they could jump off the Eiffel Tower and they would be fine. A fall like that would splatter their bodies at worst or in the very least sever some limbs, and yet Duncan said only that it would hurt. My theory is that immortals can regenerate limbs and heal any injury; it just takes a lot longer for their bodies to make the new marrow, nerves and bone, in the same way they regenerate the new skin and muscle tissue to heal their wounds. It might also depend on the age and power of the Immortal, and how large the limb is. A severed finger could be grown back in a few months or years, but a whole hand could takes decades. Saintcloud's hand hadn't grown back because either too little time had passed, Xavier wasn't old or powerful enough to speed up the process, or the prosthetic limb he had in place was perhaps interfering with the regrowing, or a combination of all three.

Think about it. How careful would immortals have to be to not lose any appendages during centuries or millenia of existence? These beings regularly engage in sword fights, fall off buildings, in addition to all the other mundane accidents that happen to normal people. Methos should have looked like a double amputee by now.

** Alternatively, a Quickening still occurs, it's just an extremely weak one since the dormant immortal has only lived a few decades at most (and not killed anyone else to collect their power), making dormant immortals terrible targets barely worth the effort except by the most evil and desperate of immortals (like the Kurgan).

** One of the alternate cuts of the film replaces "The Planet Zeist" with "The Distant Past," which more or less makes this "canon" (loathe though I am to use that word in relation to anything Highlander 2.) Whether making Immortals time-travellers instead of aliens is an improvement or not varies on your feelings.
