Potions have random colors each run so you never know what they are until you drink them or throw them. Though some fluids always have the same colors when in a flask, healing water, poison water, dark water, holy water to name a few.

Potions can have positive or negative effects. Though even negative potions can have positive effects if used correctly.

  • Scroll of identify can be used to identify them.
  • Empty_Flask can be used to create potions by collecting gasses or fluids.
  • Right clicking an item and pressing F1 (On PC) can be used to name the item so is easier to remember what the item is. If you find a basin with an odd color fluid, it will always be Magic Drain fluid, rename the Flask after you collect the fluid.
  • Harmful flask full of fluid can be throw at enemies. They can also throw their potions at you, which can be deflected mid air if you throw an item at the potion before it reaches you.
  • You can't drink potions while under water, so, even if you have 12+ life potion on you, you will die if your HP reaches zero while underwater.
  • If you drink unidentified potions, is best to unequipped anything that can be corroded and also drink near water (in case you drink explosion or incineration) also, drink away from fire sources (in case it is flammable gas or poison gas)
  • Buying potions from a potion shop will identify those potions for the duration of the dungeon run.
  • Flask/potions are hard to separate, some times you need to do that, like when you want to combine save a spare life potion to make it into a corrupted life potion for the vampire class achievement. To do it, throw a flask/potion in the water or on a floor stairs, the flask/potion won't brake if you do this. And you can later pick them up in a different stack.

Mending cloak, rations, healing potions, life potions and healing pools no longer has an effect on you (most likely all healing items stop working on you) Flask with blood sadly does not heal you, has to be fresh from a victims neck.

  • Flasks can't be used on a living Pink Jelly nor on a Electric Jelly to collect Jelly in a flask. Nor the pools of blood that they leave can be collected with a flask. Small of big Pink or Electric Jelly does not yield Jelly potion. Maybe Magic Jelly does?
