Revives a character at full HP.
Use[edit | edit source]
Arise costs 14 MP to cast, and fully heals an incapacitated character, making it more effective than Phoenix Down and Raise as the character will not need to be healed back to full once revived. This makes it very ATB-efficient, as well as potentially MP-efficient. Arise also does not depend on the Magic attribute of the user, though equipping the user with a weapon that reduces MP costs for healing spells can be helpful.
The main drawback of Arise is that it requires a large amount of AP on revival materia before it is unlocked, and will not be available for most of the game. Once unlocked, however, it normally replaces Raise and Phoenix Down entirely, and can rescue characters from dire situations.
