Notes[edit | edit source]

  • The Gills Potion will allow the player to survive while wearing a Fish Bowl.
  • The player cannot drown in lava, thus negating this potion's usefulness for that purpose.
  • It has the same crafting recipe as the Sonar Potion.

Tips[edit | edit source]

  • For swimming in lava, the player should use Obsidian Skin Potions instead of Gills Potions.
  • Despite the fact the tooltip states that you "breathe water instead of air", the user cannot suffocate on land.
