Potions of cure poison are potions that, when drunk, will cure any poison the player is suffering from. They can be thrown at monsters/pets, but that does not help them.

They can also be thrown at monsters with poisoning melee attack to heavily stun them. Such tactic is exceptionally effective against such formidable opponents as the Snake From Beyond, Keriax and the assassin prince.


They are potential lifesavers early in the game. However, poison resistance and high HP scores later will make them somewhat obsolete for drinking purposes. Throwing stun effect, on the other hand, can be desirable throughout the whole game.

Guaranteed/Common sources[]

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