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 4 minutes, but can be canceled 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 double-tapping the buff icon (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. This is because prior to 1.2, you cannot breathe in the air if you use Gills Potions. So this tooltip seems out of date.

History[edit | edit source]

  • Desktop 1.2: Gills potions no longer cause you to suffocate on land
