The Living Dead is an extremely powerful effect in Final Fantasy 14. If an ally’s HP reaches 0 while under the effects of the Living Dead, they do not die. Instead, they become a Walking Dead, capable of living a few more turns. However, once these turns are up, depending on how much HP the ally has received, the ally may or may not die at that time. Here’s how to recreate this effect in RPG Maker MV!
