|Buff tooltip||Decreased enemy spawn rate|
The Calming Potion is a buff potion which grants the Calm buff when consumed. While under its effects, the enemy spawn rate is reduced by 17% and the max amount of enemies on screen is reduced by 20%. This lasts for 8 minutes, but can be canceled at any time by right-clicking the icon (), by selecting the icon and canceling it in the equipment menu ( ), by double-tapping the buff icon (), or by canceling the buff from the buffs screen ().
This potion does not reduce enemy spawn rates during the Pumpkin Moon, Frost Moon, or Frost Legion events.
- Use it before entering the Dungeon, if the goal is looting chests and you already have a sufficient number of keys.
- While not directly helpful against bosses themselves, it can be useful to use against some like the Queen Bee or the Wall of Flesh whose biomes typically have numerous enemy spawns which could make the fight harder, or when mining Meteorite to curb Meteor Head spawns.
