A Potion of Healing may be quaffed to restore a small quantity of health to the player. It also has the following beneficial effects:
- Cures sickness.
- Increasing max HP if quaffed while character has HP at max. Uncursed gives +1 HP while blessed gives +2 HP.
Creatures recognize this potion as safe and will quaff it if carried.
Potions of Healing often generate more frequently than other potion types (which may be in part due to drop rate/tables from early monsters). The more potions colllected, the greater the chance that the highest stack of potions carried (or tied for highest stack carried) will be potions of healing.
Caution! The above tip, while useful, is just a general guide based on averages and should be treated as an educated guess at best.
