Potion of ultra healing is a type of potion in ADOM.

When drunk, a potion of ultra healing restores the PC's HP. If the potion is uncursed, it tends to restore around 60-80 HP; it has roughly the same power as the Heal spell. Drinking a blessed potion restores HP by a maximum of 333, and raises the PC's maximum HP. Thus, quite counter-intuitively, a blessed potion of ultra healing is roughly equivalent to a blessed potion of extra healing.

Like other healing potions, potions of ultra healing may cure sickness when drunk. This seems to be guaranteed to occur if the potion is blessed, but doesn't work if the PC has not lost any HP yet.

When a potion of ultra healing is drunk by the PC at full HP, the message "This liquid tastes extremely refreshing." is generated; if this occurs when the potion is still unidentified by the game, it will continue to be unidentified.


Potions of ultra healing are very useful items to have in emergency situations. They are definitely worth blessing before use, as their healing power whilst blessed can really save the PC's life in a tough battle. They are a lot less common than potions of extra healing, though, and are for that reason usually less commonly used.

Guaranteed/Common sources[]

As well as being found (rarely) as random loot, there are a few guaranteed sources of potions of ultra healing in the game:

  • One potion is found beside the secret exit out of the High Mountain Village, with a random B/U/C status.
  • Khelevaster leaves four blessed potions for those who save him.
  • An uncursed potion of ultra healing can be given as part of one of the reward sets for Thrundarr's fourth quest.
  • PCs that show mercy to Jharod, but are already maxed out on healing, can receive potions of ultra healing from him.
