Revivify from crown doesn't do anything

I had a character go down against the vampire after being heavily drained. No deaths saves, 10 rounds to revivify or game over. I cast from the crown. The log said it was cast. Nothing happened.

Neither the crown's Revivify or Revivify scrolls work in combat. Granted, the crown's Revivify power doesn't even work outside of combat. Raise Dead scrolls are also bugged, in or out of combat, they say this spell is not compatible with the character's spell list. Paladins and Clerics should be able to use these Raise Dead scrolls.

Currently if you get drained to the point where your max HP drops to 0 you won't be able to resurrect the character at all.

We're thinking of making the drain go down to 1 HP max instead of 0.

@Ignatus: I'd be interested in screenshots / saves about Revivify not working in combat / the crown not working at all / raise dead scrolls not working at all

I'm playing in German, but you can still see here that the scroll Raise Dead can't be cast by my character, despite him being a cleric. Or are Clerics not supposed to be able to cast it (but then which class is)?

I just ran into these bugs as well during and after the Aksha fight. In one fight, my rogue died, and my Cleric used 2 scrolls of Revivify on him, but nothing happened. I reloaded and finished the fight with the dead rogue, and in the postmortem screen, I selected to use the Scrolls of Revivify, then all options greyed out, and I was left with reload from last save or quit game. I don't really want to keep doing this fight until I get no deaths, it's already a pain in the butt.

I've just had the same issue in the Aksha fight.  My paladin got drained to 0, and revivify isn't working, either from the crown, or the scrolls.  It's very frustrating, since the fight is taking more than 10 rounds.   Also, since one the the smaller vampires was turned, and ran several rooms away into another pack of ghouls, I can't end the combat to try revivify out of combat

On a related note: The devs in the Twitch stream said they would consider implementing death saves as a difficulty setting. But why not as a standard feature? The game is advertised as being true to the tabletop experience. Death saves are a standard rule in D&D5.
