Knowing how to heal and revive a mercenary in Diablo 2 Resurrected lets you keep the same partner throughout the game. It is inevitable a time will come when your companion needs healing or even takes a fall. Despite being a work-for-hire, you may have become attached to them or value their skills. In addition, they may also have important equipment on them you don’t want to lose. Read on as we discuss how to heal and revive a mercenary in Diablo 2 Resurrected.
How to Heal Mercenary in Diablo 2 Resurrected On PS4, PC & Switch
Luckily, on all platforms healing your mercenary is an easy task. It all comes down to knowing your controls. Both PS4 and PS5 involve holding L2 then pressing an HP potion with whatever direction you have it set on the D-Pad.
On Switch, the controls are much the same. You need to press ZL with the D-Pad in the corresponding direction. PC has two ways you can do this. The simplest is by holding shift + 1/2/3/4. You can also heal the mercenary by dragging and dropping a potion from the inventory onto the mercenary portrait. This should be in the upper left corner of the screen.
How to Revive Mercenary in Diablo 2 Resurrected
If your mercenary dies, you may want to bring them back to life. This can be done by talking to certain NPC characters in each act who will perform a revive for you. The people you need are the following:
- Kashya in Act I
- Greiz in Act II
- Asheara in Act III
- Tyreal in Act IV
- Qual-Kehk in Act V
Consider your resurrections carefully. You must pay a large sum of up to 50,000 gold to do this. The higher the merc level, the more expensive it will be. This means you may also find that it offers diminishing returns. Cheaper alternatives may be to hire a new mercenary of a similar or higher level.
