This spell was similar to the spell able to be cast by less experienced casters, lesser restoration. However, the greater restoration spell was able to fully restore a creature that had been drained of power.
As well as restoring a creature's power, greater restoration was able to dispel all magical effects hindering the character's abilities, such as a loss in strength or intelligence. If the recipient was unable to deal nominal damage with their skills, due to effects of a condition or spell, the spell would allow them to deal their regular damage again. Greater restoration removed similar mental effects to confusion, and even insanity.
