Look at that shoddy armor you're wearing. Better buy some more healing potions.

The Merchant

The Lesser Healing Potion is a healing item that restores 50 health when used. As its name suggests, it heals the least amount of health of all Healing Potions.

In addition to being crafted, Lesser Healing Potions can also be found naturally in pots (only before Hardmode), generated chests, Wooden and Pearlwood Crates, and dropped by most pre-Hardmode bosses.

Lesser Healing Potions can also be purchased for 3 from the Merchant, or from the Skeleton MerchantDesktop only.pngConsole versionOld-gen console versionMobile versionOld Chinese versiontModLoader versiontModLoader 1.3-Legacy version during moon phases 2, 4, 6, and 8: Moon phase 2 (Waning Gibbous) Moon phase 4 (Waning Crescent) Moon phase 6 (Waxing Crescent) Moon phase 8 (Waxing Gibbous)

Naturally-placed Lesser Healing Potions appear frequently on platforms in the Dungeon (along with Lesser Mana Potions). When encountered in placed form, they function as Placed Bottle crafting stations. They also show the "bottle" tooltip on the map. They can be freed with a pickaxe or drill and retrieved, but they cannot be placed by the player.
