Potion belt ( [ )
Item Type Girdle
Artifact? Yes
Weight 25s
Danger Level Unknown
Material Iron

The potion belt is a non-guaranteed artifact girdle. While it is worn, the PC's potions are protected from item destruction and made weightless. The weight reduction allows dipping 19 potions at a time, with the exception of attribute-increasing potions. It appears as a belt when unidentified.


The potion belt lets you freely carry valuable potions into areas with high amounts of item destruction, and allows for more efficient blessing and cursing of common potions. While other girdles can offer better defenses or greater carrying capacity, it is still fairly useful.

On DL1, dipping 19 potions of any kind into a potion of exchange will produce on average more than 1 additional potion of exchange, and more than 1 potion of gain attributes. If you collect ~400 DL1 potions, you can keep this running indefinitely.

Guaranteed/Common sources[]

It can be granted as a precrowning gift or a reward for making use of a potion of uselessness, generated in a surge of power or greater vault, or generated as random loot (albeit very rarely).
