Restoration (or Restore for short) is a spell cast by the Terran Medic. She may use this ability on any unit to remove harmful effects such as Lockdown, Optic Flares, Irradiate, Plague, Ensnare and Parasites (does not affect Stasis Field)[1].


Restoration is very rarely used. It is most effectively used to counter powerful spells in the late game. At that point, however, units, being so abundant, are more expendable and easily replenished. Occasionally it's used to save expensive Battlecruisers from Plague or Lockdown.
