Potions of blindness are Potions that, when drunk, temporarily blind the player. When blessed, they actually cure blindness when drunk.

They can also be thrown at monsters to blind them. Non-immune monsters have around a 50% chance to resist this, with more experienced monsters being more likely to resist. Blessed potions will not blind monsters, and in addition will remove blindness.


Blindness is a status ailment that will severely incapacitate a monster, especially ones that invoke spells or other powerful abilities, since they cannot use them while blind.

Keep in mind monsters will be able to move [and attack character if they move into him/her] but movement will be uncoordinated.

Guaranteed/Common sources[]

They can be obtained in the same manner as all generic loot.
