Ressurect - Chaplain ability. Once this skill/item has been researched, ressurectable allies with be marked with a skull on the map and red cross above their body ingame. Simply walk up to their body and use the ressurect skill to revive the player with 50% hitpoints. During the ressurection animation the Chaplain and the one being ressurrected are immune to all attacks and damage. The ressurect is an area effect spell (with a very small radius). Theoreticly, if 20 people all die very closely to eachother, it might be possible to ressurect them all together, or the server might crash. The ingame record for most revives with one ressurect is about 5. Normally, three simultaneous ressurects is already alot.

You get gold for each ressurect and it can earn you pretty much gold fast if the situation is right and you use it correctly. Can be very handy on low gold maps.

Try to die near other fallen allies, that makes it easier to ressurect you. The less distance the chaplain has to travel to get to you, the higher the odds he picks you as next ressurect target. Humans unfortunatly often dont fully use ressurect. People often seem to prefer to relocate (before dieing) or go to loadout. If done well, it can greatly help, but ingame its usually beast that uses ressurect to the fullest. (Note: The red cross will appear above a players head until they release from their body. Once a player who has died releases to the loading screen, they can no longer be ressurected)
