Icon Potion of haste.png
An enchanted beverage which speeds the actions of anyone who drinks it.

Quaffing a potion of haste grants a character haste. All your actions will be 50% faster for 1d40 + 39 (more) turns (max 79), making it excellent for both escaping dangerous opponents and dealing much more damage in combat.

Being hastened will gradually give you magic contamination, and the act of quaffing another potion to extend the condition adds 1 extra point. Even so, potions of haste are the least contaminating method for acquiring haste; both the spell Haste and the wand of hasting add +1 when first used and +2 when used to extend a Haste.

Cheibriados punishes followers who knowingly drink potions of speed.

Formicids' innate stasis makes them unable to become hasted, so this potion is useless for them.

Normal: "You feel yourself speed up."
Already Hastened: "You feel as though you will be hastened longer."
