Crafted potions and flasks (food items not included). Click to enlarge.

Potions are consumable items that either recover the user's health and/or mana either instantaneously or over time, or grant temporary buffs or debuffs to the user. Potions are commonly found in natural Chests and Pots, can be dropped by enemies, purchased from NPCs, or crafted. Most potions can be crafted at a Placed Bottle or Alchemy Table, but flasks must be crafted at an Imbuing Station.

Potion buffs can be canceled at any time by right-clicking the buff icon (Desktop version), by selecting the buff icon and canceling it in the equipment menu (Nintendo SwitchOld-gen console version), by selecting the buff with Left Shoulder Button + X/B then canceling the buff with A (Console version), by double-tapping the buff icon (Mobile version), or by canceling the buff from the buffs screen (Nintendo 3DS version). All potion buffs (including food buffs, but excluding flask buffs) are lost when dying.

In Journey Mode, most potions require 20 items to be researched. Recovery potions require 30 items.

Trivia

  • Certain potions' sprites use bottles that correlate with real-life flasks. These include:
  • All potions (excluding the Recovery potions) use a glass stopper.
  • On 3DSNintendo 3DS version, if the player quickly uses a potion right after they leave their inventory, the potion will be used, but not consumed. However, the buff/debuff from it will only last 1 minute. Note that this might not work every time.
  • Some potions can only be crafted in worlds with the proper evil biome:
    • Thorns and Wrath Potions can only be crafted in worlds with Corruption ingredients.
    • Heartreach and Rage Potions can only be crafted in worlds with Crimson ingredients.
    • Both the Heartreach and Thorns Potions can be found in Chests, regardless of world type. Additionally Heartreach Potions can be found in crates. However, this represents a limited (non-renewable) supply for Thorn Potions.
    • Of these four potions, only the Heartreach Potion can be obtained from crates.
On the Desktop version Desktop version, Console version Console version, and Mobile version Mobile version, it is possible to create the other evil biome by purchasing the seeds from the Dryad.
