Potions of healing are potions that, when drunk, restore some of the player's HP. They can also heal sickness, though that is only guaranteed if they are blessed. Also, when blessed they can increase the PC's maximum HP by one with approximately 33% chance.

There are some reports that healing potions do not cure sickness if there were no HP losses due to it (i.e. first turn immediately after getting sick).


They can be lifesavers in the early game due to their ability to heal sickness — if identified in time. They fade into obscurity later on, when herbs substitute for their uses, though unlike curaria mancox or pepper petal they can be consumed when bloated. The amount of HP restored by them is in the 30s, which grows progressively more insignificant as monsters get stronger.

Guaranteed/Common sources[]

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