  • Instantly commands your pet to teleport to a nearby fallen ally and then back to your location and then begin reviving them while granting regeneration to allies. Since it teleports the ally to you, it is very useful to pull them out of danger, including stomps.
  • If there is no 'valid path' to target, the pet will still teleport to a downed ally and start reviving, but he will only teleport back to the nearest, possible route to the player that cast the skill.
  • If the pet is downed, it will still teleport a downed ally to the player, but it won't revive the player.
  • Defeated allies are unaffected unless the skill was activated while the defeated ally was downed. This includes NPCs.
