The player will remain in a Weakened status for five minutes. Higher levels of Raise increase the amount of lost Experience recovered and the amount of HP the player has upon being revived. The duration of Weakened remained unchanged.

Final Fantasy XII Edit

XII Raise is a White Magick. In the original version, its License is White Magick 3 which requires 30 License Points to unlock. It revives an ally from KO, and when used against the undead, has 70% chance of inflicting instant death. Surprisingly, Raise is the superior method of inflicting instant death on the undead over Arise (35%) and Renew (0%).

Casting Raise will increase massive amount of Enmity of surrounding enemies, endangering the magick user after reviving an ally. Instead of applying the status Lure, casting Raise on the enemy by tank periodically is a better way to attract enemy fire because the ability Decoy has worse base success rate and short effect duration.

HP restored with Raise = 0.4 x target's max HP

In the Zodiac versions, Raise is White Magick 4. It can be used by five job classes, three of which by obtaining other licenses. White Mage and Red Battlemage can acquire Raise on their License Boards, Time Battlemage must have the Esper Adrammelech license, Monk must have the Esper Hashmal, and Archer must acquire a preceding Quickening license.

—Description

Raise is learned by advancing in the Medic role in the Crystarium, It can be learned by Lightning and Vanille at Crystarium Stage 6, by Fang at Stage 7, and Hope at Stage 8. Raise uses three ATB segments and revives a KO'd character with a small amount of HP.

If a character is knocked out, the computer-controlled Medic will cast Raise only if other characters have greater than 50% HP. However, if the lead character is knocked out, the game ends then and there, no exception. Lightning has a weapon with the Improved Raise ability, which allows Lightning to restore more HP to an ally when using the ability.

The standard HP amount restored by Raise is 18% of max HP, however, the Medic role bonus can boost it.

Bonus % of max HP recovered
20% 21%
23-26% 22%
29-33% 23%
35-38% 24%
39-44% 25%

The Life spell should cause Fatal to undead enemies only, but a flag got mixed up in the North American version that causes the Life spell to instantly kill any non-undead enemy instead.
