Revive is a self-targeting Summoner spell that instantly respawns a dead champion at their home base and gives them a large speed boost that slowly decays over a set duration. Accordingly, this spell is usable only while the summoner's champion is dead.

Revive Revive can be used in all game modes with the exception of Howling Abyss.


When game pressures become tense, Revive Revive's sudden burst of recovery from the grave can turn the tide of battle in all but hopeless situations. Similarly, this spike of champion presence can be used to seize an opportunity that might otherwise be out of reach.

Revive Revive's speed boost allows players to quickly intercept any objective close to their home base, including an ongoing fight. This effect is even more prominent on smaller maps like Twisted Treeline, where even objectives on the opposing side of the map become easy to approach. Indeed, Revive Revive's long-distance mobility as a summoner spell is rivaled only by Summoner Teleport Teleport.

The bonus health granted from Revive Revive's companion mastery, Summoner's Insight, brings added weight to a champion's return, especially when coupled with champion roles that benefit particularly from health, e.g. fighters, tanks, and aggressive assassins.

In later game phases, longer death timers increase the impact of Revive Revive even further. For example, if a late-game team fight ends with multiple players on both sides slain, a revived champion can attack objectives that the opposing team, now suffering from death recovery, can not defend or counterattack against.


  • Revive Revive synergizes well with champions that have an 'on-death' effect such as Karthus OriginalSquare Karthus and Kog'Maw OriginalSquare Kog'Maw.
    • Note that a champion under the effect of an on-death ability is considered alive until the ability ends; only after entering into death does Revive Revive become usable.
  • Other movement speed and mobility effects can be combined with Revive Revive, allowing players to traverse even greater distances with breakneck speed and initiative.
    • The boots enchantment Enchantment- Homeguard item Homeguard pairs exceedingly well with Revive Revive, as a revived player will almost always trigger Enchantment- Homeguard item Homeguard's otherwise uncommon condition - being at the summoner's platform.


  • At 9 minutes, Revive Revive has the longest cooldown of any spell or ability in League of Legends.
    • This cooldown is one of the longest timed effects in the entirety of the game, second only to Baron Nashor's initial spawn timer of 15 minutes on Summoner's Rift.
