Description

Returns a monster to life to fight by your side.

While Skeletons and Skeletal Mages are great early on, Revived Monsters are the ultimate Minions (ignoring Golems). Once you've created a corpse,
Revive
a monster and it will be back in action with more Hit Points and fighting on your side. Quickly the monsters will find themselves outnumbered as you raise more and more Monsters during the battle to use against them. You can increase the Monster Hit Points and damage of Revived Monsters by putting points into
Skeleton Mastery
. You can increase their resistances with
Summon Resist
.

Revived Monsters will do their normal and skilled attacks but they will not raise other monsters. Some monsters have special attacks such as Lightning, Fire Balls, Meteors, Blizzards, and more. Once you convert these Monsters, they will use their special attacks against their former friends.

Revived Monsters will pick up any Auras or any other party-friendly spells, which will further increase their power.

One thing you'll notice about Revived Monsters is that they may not be as "smart" as your other Minions. While you now have control of these Revived Monsters, they still retain much of their original thoughts and tendencies. So a Revived Monster is somewhat different from your minions in that they sort of have their own will but fight on your side. You will have to take extra care when moving Revived Monsters around. You can create new Revived Monsters to replace those that have headed off on their own path. You'll find that their abilities in battle will more than outweigh their stupidity in following your commands.

You can't
Revive
Bosses, Super Unique monsters,
Leaper
and some other monsters. You will know which monster cannot be revived if you are unable to select their corpse when attempting to cast
Revive
.

Revived Monsters will often "disappear" when you get too far away from them. Generally, it's a good idea to keep them on the Automap. Watch your Automap and if you notice they are getting too far away or disappearing from the Automap, stop and wait for them. Sometimes you have no choice but to leave them behind, but other times you can slow yourself down allowing them to keep up. If you notice big chunks of Revived Monsters disappearing, this usually means you got too far away from them to command them. Also, keep in mind that Revived Monsters also disappear after 3 minutes.

If you don't like what monsters are available to
Revive
in an area you are playing in, go to another area and get the monsters you like, then take them to the new area. This is really helpful, especially when taking on Bosses or when certain monsters would be very good against other types of monsters.

Figure out what Monsters are the best to
Revive
for the situation. In cases where it may be difficult to lead a group of ground-based Revived Monsters around (
Arcane Sanctuary
,
River of Flame
), choose flying monsters to
Revive
such as Wraiths and Finger Mages. Some monsters are really great to have such as Abyss Knights, Willowisps, so you might want to pick them (or whatever your favorite is) over other monsters. Making good decisions about which Monsters to
Revive
can be really helpful.

Before spending many points in
Revive
or maxing it out (at 20), take a look at how many Revived you can support at a time. Try an additional point, see if you can keep your Revived at max while you're playing. If you're unable to keep the maximum number of Revived active, don't spend any more points. For each point in
Revive
, you're only being allowed to create 1 additional monster so unless you're always at max, placing additional points in
Revive
is not worth it.

Do Necromancer Revived Monsters stay under the Necromancer's power until they die?
Yes. But they naturally expire after 3 minutes.

Lore

The ultimate goal of a Priest of Rathma is the perfect reanimation and control of a dead creature, maintaining the purity and properties of its body while releasing its soul to allow the Necromancer full control.

When a Necromancer at long last gains this ability, he can truly claim mastery of the Great Cycle of Being.
