The Calming Potion is a buff potion which grants the Calm buff when consumed. While under its effects, the enemy spawn rate is reduced by 17% and the max amount of enemies on screen is reduced by 20%. This lasts for 12 minutes () / 8 minutes (), but can be canceled at any time by right-clicking the icon (Desktop version), by selecting the icon using Cycle Next/Previous Buff and then pressing Remove Buff (Console version), by selecting the icon and canceling it in the equipment menu (Old-gen console version), by double-tapping the buff icon (Mobile version), or by canceling the buff from the buffs screen (Nintendo 3DS version).

This potion does not reduce enemy spawn rates during the Pumpkin Moon, Frost Moon, or Frost Legion events.

  • If the player wants to loot the chests in the Dungeon and already has a sufficient number of Golden Keys, using this potion before entering may be a good idea.
  • While not directly helpful against bosses themselves, it can be useful to use against some like the Queen Bee or the Wall of Flesh whose biomes typically have numerous enemy spawns which could make the fight harder, or when mining Meteorite to curb Meteor Head spawns.
