Resurrection is both a skill and a spell in Heroes of Might and Magic IV.
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).
There are two artifacts affecting the Resurrection skill:
- Ankh of Life - gives +5% if the hero has the Resurrection skill, otherwise acts as Basic Resurrection.
- Saint Ranan's Staff - gives + 20% if the hero has the Resurrection skill, otherwise acts as Basic Resurrection.
"Of course, there are limits to what you can do, but if you expose the recently dead to pure Life Magic you can bring them back to life."Brings a certain number of hit points of dead creatures back to life for each caster.
Resurrection is a Life Magic spell. It cannot be found in spellbooks, but it cast by angels in combat and costs twenty spell points. The spell resurrects 92 hit points from any friendly stack, alive or dead, per angel.
