ok so i had gotten a phoenix from a friend of mine from the new pet box. and i know its exclusive skill revives you if you die if you have one of those erg crystals in their inventory. but i wanted to know. Does the pet have to be out to do it or can it be unsummoned and then if i die it just revives me? or do i have to have the Phoenix out at the time i die for it to revive me?

because i feel that if it has to be out then theirs no difference from just buying those Pet revival kits from the healers. and it would just be a waste of money to buy the crystals when i can just spend some gold and fill my pets with those kits from the shops.

if anyone who has a phoenix and used the skill tell me if it revives you no matter if its summoned or not. so that way i dont waste my money buying the crystals.

    Players can be revived when the phoniex is not summoned if the phoniex's buff is applied. The erg provides additional bonuses to being revived. So if you just want it for reviving your characters, you don't have to buy the erg.

    The auto-revive is a buff cast by the Phoenix.
    After it buffs you, you can unsummon it, and if you die before the buff wears off (non-crystal version expires over time, crystal version doesn't), then you'll revive.

    It's basically like the revival balloons.
    If you die with the buff active, you don't get a choice on how to revive, you just stand right back up.

    just gonna add that if you use the buff without the erg crystal then it works the same -- except you don't get the knockback AOE when you get up and your gear doesn't get blessed. Erg crystal adds those 2 effects which makes them like an instant nao stone

    I used to love those crystals but then Nexon didn't put them in the shop at ALL for 2 years after the phoenix was first sold, and by the time they put them in permanently I didn't care anymore and ended up giving away my phoenix pet to a friend

    I'd probably use the crystal with the buff more, if I knew I wouldn't have to die at least once a week and waste it. (Daily/Weekly Crusader Orders, why you gotta make us die for points?!)

    oh ok. Thanks alot everyone. i wasnt actually aware i didnt need the crystals in order to be revived. i guess it is worth it to buy them and only activate them when im going into high lvl content solo. but for now i have nao stones but i will end up blowing through those im sure. so its good to have a free revive on hand from my pet.

    it really paid off to make this thread since i learned more about it then i thought i would. so again Thank you all for the clarification.

    Use phoenix skill while not holding any crystal. Simple :3
    It is notably less amazing since it will last only one hour and who can foresee your own death? o.o

    Does that mean the player is basically immortal if using the skill every hour?

    No because after the player dies once and revives, they need to recast it (36 minute cooldown) and you can die right afterwards. It is most likely you die in the middle of a battle, so you can still die again and stay floored until you revive by another method.
