The Gills Potion is a buff potion which grants the Gills buff when consumed. The buff allows the player to breathe underwater, preventing them from drowning. This lasts for 2 minutes, but can be cancelled at any time by right-clicking the icon (Desktop version), by selecting the icon and canceling it in the equipment menu (Console versionOld-gen console version), by reloading the game (Mobile version), or by canceling the buff from the buffs screen (3DS version).

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 can still breathe air.

History[edit | edit source]
