How to Bring Others Back to Life in Demonologist?

Whether you’re a Demon-hunting veteran or are new to the harrowing world of Demonologist, mastering the art of revival is the key to victory over the evil entities that haunt the world around you; after all, if you and your teammates can’t revive each other when disaster strikes, then who will be left to take down the ghost? Unfortunately, reviving people isn’t as easy as it sounds.

There’s only one way to bring people back from the dead in Demonlogist, and sadly, it’s almost entirely based on luck rather than skill. For those of you who are familiar with the game, you’re likely already aware of the existence of Tarot Cards. These cards are your only hope of reviving people in Demonologist.

Once you’ve found a pack of Tarot Cards in one of the maps, you’ll have to start drawing cards until you draw the “Angel” card. This card will revive a singular dead member of your team if you happen to be lucky enough to draw it.

Keep in mind that you have a limited number of card draws in Demonologist, so if you don’t happen to draw the Angel card on any of your attempts, then you’re just out of luck. Also, many of the cards that you draw can be potentially dangerous, so stay on your guard while you’re drawing!

Where Can You Find Tarot Cards in Demonologist?

Since they’re the only way for players to revive other people in Demonologist, Tarot Card decks are some of the most highly sought-after items in the game. But unlike some of the other items in Demonologist, trying to locate Tarot Cards in the game’s expansive maps is a bit like going on a haunted easter egg hunt.

Unfortunately, there aren’t really any predetermined locations where Tarot Cards will spawn. Tarot Cards will randomly spawn around whatever map you happen to enter, regardless of the map’s type. They will also rarely ever spawn in the same location twice in a row, so don’t go looking in the same areas of a map that you found them in before.

To find them, you kind of just have to wander around and keep your eyes peeled. I know that that’s probably not what you were hoping to hear, but unfortunately, that’s just kind of how it is.

How to Use Tarot Cards in Demonologist?

Tarot Card decks are some of the most powerful items in Demonologist. Not only is the Tarot deck the only item that is able to bring players back to life, but it also has the power to either make or break an entire investigation.

Once found on a map, players can pick up Tarot Card decks using the “E” key on their keyboard. After that, they’ll just continue to use the “E” key to draw cards. To put the Tarot Cards back down, players will need to press the “G” key on their keyboard.


In the eerie world of Demonologist, where death and danger lurk around every corner, Tarot Cards aren’t just another resource—they’re your secret weapon to gaining victory over death itself.
