Resurrection is both a skill and a spell in Heroes of Might and Magic IV.

Skill Edit


Resurrection is a subskill of Life Magic. This skill allows a hero to resurrect a certain percentage of slain allied troops after battle. Undead, mechanical and elemental units can't be resurrected.

Actual number of troops is rounded down, so if hero has Grandmaster Resurrection, and 3 troops were slain, only one will be resurrected (3/2=1.5, round down).

Skill LevelsEdit

Advanced 30%

Master 45%
Grandmaster 50%

There are two artifacts affecting the Resurrection skill:

  1. Ankh of Life - gives +5% if the hero has the Resurrection skill, otherwise acts as Basic Resurrection.
  2. Saint Ranan's Staff - gives + 20% if the hero has the Resurrection skill, otherwise acts as Basic Resurrection.

There is also one advanced class, Cardinal (Life Magic + Nobility), that has a +5% bonus to the Resurrection skill.
