Revive

Difference from the LoD version
A level 1 skill. Improved damage and duration. Less revived monsters and initial mana cost.
Pros
Basically stronger than the original monsters. You can select the monster to revive. Even 1 point works fine to increase the number of meat shields.
Cons
Die when the duration expires. Disappear when they can't catch up with you. Poor AI.
Notes
In spite of the much improved stats from the LoD version, Revived monsters aren't much useful in early games.
