The Swiftness Potion is a buff potion which grants the Swiftness buff when consumed. The buff increases maximum movement speed by 25%. This lasts for 8 minutes / 4 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). The effect does not stack with sprinting accessories (such as Hermes Boots) nor does it affect the speed of mounts.

It has a small chance to appear as a bonus drop from Slimes.

  • Though the Swiftness buff alone will not boost the player's top running speed when they have a sprinting accessory equipped, it will boost top speed further when running on Asphalt Blocks, and also increases horizontal air speed by an extremely small amount.
  • The Swiftness buff stacks with the effects of the Slice of Cake.
  • The Swiftness Potion can be used with Sunflowers, Asphalt Blocks, movement accessories, and sprinting accessories to increase the player's top speed even further.
