Notes[]

  • The Gills Potion will allow the player to survive while wearing a Fish Bowl.
  • The player cannot drown in lava, thus negating this potion's usefulness for that purpose.

Tips[]

  • For swimming in lava, the player should use Obsidian Skin Potions instead of Gills Potions.
  • Despite the tooltip states that player can "breathe water instead of air", they can still breathe air. This is because prior to 1.2, players could not breathe in the air if they used a Gills Potion. As such, this tooltip appears to be outdated.

Trivia[]

History[]

  • Desktop 1.2: Gills potions no longer cause the player to suffocate in air.
