Potions of quickling blood are one of the rarest types of potion in ADOM. When drunk, a potion of quickling blood permanently alters the PC's speed; uncursed potions increase speed by about 2-4 points, blessed potions increase speed by about 3-6 points, cursed potions lower speed by 2 points.

Throwing them at monsters likewise alters their speed.


Extra speed is always useful for helping the PC to get the upper hand in both fight or flight situations. 2-6 extra points per potion isn't much, but it's better than nothing. Of course, the PC should try to avoid drinking cursed potions.

Guaranteed/Common sources[]

They can be obtained in the same manner as all generic loot, though they appear to be very rare. They can be wished for, if the player desires to do so.
