Potions of longevity are Potions that, when drunk, increase the players lifespan, effect seems slightly dependent on race, for orcs blessed potion averages at 18 years with distribution being in 10-27 range. The effect appears to stack fully, with no limit; it is possible to achieve lifespans of several thousand years with orcs, for instance.

Note that drinking one of these potions on the same turn as being aged to death is the only way to survive this type of death.

Drinking cursed potions results in the message "You feel less vigorous."; though this has no effect on the PC's usual lifespan. It is possible that a cursed potion might undo the effects of drinking an uncursed/blessed potion.


They are useful to players with short lifespans, to reduce risk of death by aging attacks used by ghosts.

Guaranteed/Common sources[]

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