The Necromancer (Riva Faust) is a grade A Instrument Mercenary.


Riva Faust

The Necromancer is the result of Johann Faust's experiments to create the ultimate weapon. She commands a wide range of dark and necromantic magic, controlling the spirits of the dead with her music.

Her Watchful Soul magic helps her avoid physical attacks, while Blood Curse deals damage to enemies and Dark Mists summons mist from the underworld to blind and hide both enemies and allies. Her true strength is in her Resurrection magic, which calls an ally back from the dead.

You can have up to 1 of this mercenary.

Assessment Edit

Riva is the only mercenary in the game that can resurrect in normal combat. Her other skills are limited and she does decent damage. Riva really shines in Infinity Challenge, since she can resurrect a mercenary in your formation or your two partied allies' formations each turn, keeping all of your teams alive for as many rounds as you can make it in Infinity Challenge.

See resurrection for more info on resurrection and healers for healer mercenaries.

Unfortunately, beyond thus, she is simply too expensive (to obtain, upgrade and skill up) mercenary for what she provides. Her most important skill, to resurrect someone in battle, is not important enough in typical battles as long as Scrolls of Resurrection are inexpensive and resurrecting outside of battle is even cheaper.
