Potions are a group of consumable items that either recover health and/or mana or grant temporary buffs. Potions are commonly found in natural chests and Pots and can be dropped by enemies, purchased from NPCs, or crafted. Most potions can be crafted at a Placed Bottle or Alchemy Table, but flasks must be crafted at an Imbuing Station. Potion buffs can be canceled at any time by right-clicking the buff icon (Desktop version), by selecting the buff icon and canceling it in the equipment menu (Console versionOld-gen console version), by double-tapping the buff icon (Mobile version), or by canceling the buff from the buffs screen (3DS version). All Potions require 20 to unlock duplication, but 30 are needed for recovery potions.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Certain potions' sprites use bottles that correlate with real-life flasks. These include:
  • All potions (excluding the Recovery potions) use a glass stopper.
  • The sprite for the Wiesnbräu is a reference to a popular drinking glass, and has been seen in the 2006 American comedy film Beerfest.
  • On 3DS version3DS, if the player quickly uses a potion right after they leave their inventory, the potion will be used, but not consumed. However, the buff/debuff from it will only last 1 minute. Note that this might not work every time.
  • Some potions can only be crafted in worlds with the proper evil biome:
    • Thorns and Wrath potions can only be crafted in worlds with Corruption.
    • Heartreach and Rage potions can only be crafted in worlds with Crimson.
    • Both the Heartreach and Thorns Potions can be found in Chests, regardless of world type. Additionally Heartreach potions can be found in Crates. However, this represents a limited (non-renewable) supply for Thorn Potions.
    • Of these four potions, only the Heartreach potion can be obtained from Crates.
    • Note that since 1.4.0.1 update, you can place a Dryad in graveyard biome and get opposite evil's seeds, so all of these potions are available to craft on every world.
