Depends on the circumstances.


And there you go. That is why revive is bad.

The circumstances for every other summoner spell are very commonly occurring over the course of a game. I run out of mana, I clarity. I see someone at very low health or someone who needs to get focused, I ignite. I need to escape over a wall or instantly close a distance, flash. I need to run faster for ANY REASON AT ALL, ghost. etc. etc.

Revive's circumstances are: I died in a team fight and am personally capable of finishing off whoever on the enemy team is left alive, or defending a tower against aforementioned players by myself, assuming they're in a position to go for a tower before my teammates are up anyway.

Or:

I'm an absolute moron and get caught in very obvious ganks. To make up for my doing this, I will take one less summoner spell that has team fight value.

This is why revive is bad. It's circumstances are either rare or specific to bad players.

preventing death will always be better than healing death

It's not that revive is bad in the sense that you'll lose because of it, it's that the other spells are way better.

In most of the examples you gave, another spell would be much better. Specially flash.


I have never, ever, seen a good player using revive.

Your example with karthus is not valid since he can cast spells when he dies.

Revive cd should be, at least, as low as a guardian angel.

the concept of revive is fine, its just that the cooldown is ridiculous


Agreed. If the cooldown was a bit lower, I'd probably do a tower dive.

That I can actually agree with. Faster cooldown might open more people up to the idea of using revive.


the thing is though, a spell like revive can never really be balanced. if they buff it's CD to the point that it's a viable choice everyone will take it. if the cd remains long, it wont see much use like how it is currently.
