Terraria Potions: Definitive Healing & Buffs Guide

Health And Other Benefits.

Terraria’s Potions are consumables that give players a way to recover health and maybe even gain a bunch of other buffs on top of that. They give you an edge in situations that might otherwise be too challenging or daunting. But unlike most games, Terraria gives you an overwhelming amount of choice when it comes to the types of potions you can create. The effects they bestow upon your character are extremely varied, and most players won’t even try more than a few different types.

Key Highlights
  • In Terraria, potions play a mystical and powerful role, offering various buffs and debuffs.
  • Potions can be crafted at the Alchemy Table or, for buffs, at the Imbuing Station.
  • Options include Healing, Limited Time Buffs, Mischievous, and “Flasks.”
  • Buff-giving potions include Endurance, Battle, Luck, Inferno, and Invisibility Potions.
  • Miscellaneous potions include Teleportation, Recall, and Potion of Return.
  • Crafting these potions requires different material quantities.

Terraria Potions Guide

Terraria Potions
Alchemy Table.

First of all, I would like to mention that this is not a guide about all recovery items in the game. That itself would be an extremely lengthy article. In this, I will only be going over items with ‘Potion’ or ‘Flask’ in their name.

Most of these items can be crafted at either the Placed Bottle or Alchemy Table crafting stations. Those that give players damage buffs can be made only at the Imbuing Station. Some of these can also only be found in the world or bought from merchants.

Here’s the complete information on Portions in Terraria:
