Crawling through dungeons is dangerous business, and there’s a chance that either you or one of your party members won’t make it out alive. Someone will give up the ghost, whether that’s to another player or a skeleton (or other foul beast). Whatever the reason, you’ll want to know how to revive in Dark and Darker

How to Revive in Dark and Darker

Use the Altar of Resurrection

The most common way to revive in Dark and Darker is to use the Altar of Resurrection. It’s one of the five shrine types that can be encountered inside a dungeon. Note that the process will remove some of your own health, transferring it to your downed teammate. Here’s how to use it:

  1. Approach a fallen teammate.
  2. Remove their chestplate.
  3. Pick up the Soul Heart of that player and place it in your inventory.
  4. Approach and interact with the closest Altar of Resurrection.
  5. Place the Soul Heart of the fallen player onto the altar.

Run the Cleric Class

The Cleric is the only class in Dark and Darker that can revive players without the Altar of Resurrection. You must equip the Requiem perk to do so.

The Requiem perk allows you to resurrect teammates with 25% of their health, which is a lot more than the Altar of Resurrection allows. Clerics may use the Altar of Resurrection in the same way as any other class, but they won’t sacrifice their own HP to bring players back.

Follow these steps to revive a player using the Cleric class:

  1. Approach the fallen teammate.
  2. Cast the Requiem spell.
  3. Hold the cast button until the spell fully charges.

The spell may take between 20 to 30 seconds to cast, but if you release the cast button, the spell may not finish. Keep holding it until your teammate fully resurrects. Also, try not to move or pick up the Soul Heart while casting the spell, as this may interfere with the process.

That’s how to revive in Dark and Darker. Stay tuned for more Dark and Darker guides.
