The Restoration Potion restores health (and mana on Old-gen console version Old-gen console, 3DSNintendo 3DS version, and tModLoader version tModLoader) when used. Despite its appearance, it is not created by upgrading Lesser Restoration Potions.

Consuming a Restoration Potion has the following effect:

  • Restores 90 health. Potion Sickness only lasts for 45 seconds.
  • Restores 80 health and 80 mana. Potion Sickness only lasts for 50 seconds.
  • Restores 100 health and 100 mana. Potion Sickness lasts for the full 60 seconds.

  • The cooldown-reducing effect of the Philosopher's Stone or Charm of Myths applies to the Restoration Potion as well, further reducing Potion Sickness to 33.75 / 37.5 seconds.


  • Even though it restores the same amount of health, it could be considered an upgrade from the Lesser Restoration Potion due to the fact that the cooldown is reduced by 10 seconds. This makes it a great beginning healing item if Pink Gel is acquired early.
  • The Restoration Potion has a confusing place among the tiers of healing potions. Compared to the Healing Potion, it gives almost as much health with a shorter cooldown. Compared to the Honeyfin; it gives ¾ the healing with ¾ the cooldown. Either way, there is also natural healing/regeneration during the cooldown to consider.



  • Desktop 1.2.3:
    • Fixed bug where Restoration Potion's rarity of white was lower than Mana or Healing Potion's rarity of blue (despite being the same tier).
    • Fixed bug in world generation where Restoration Potions could generate with their stack over the maximum 20.
  • Desktop Restoration ability decreased from 200 to 100 points for each stat.
