Potion of curing
|A potion which restores a small amount of health, and cures poison and confusion.|
You feel better.
These are best used for curing confusion. It's also good against poison, which can stack quickly. A single potion heals all poison, no matter how severe it is. If you need pure HP restoration, a potion of heal wounds is stronger. In lieu of other escape options, curing can help - just don't be surprised if a monster outdamages the healing.
Do note that these potions only cure poison and confusion. The vast majority of status effects are unaffected. If you're dealing with effects such as petrification, slowness, or an unwanted transformation, you'll want a potion of cancellation instead.
Potions of curing are the most common potion in the game. If you get lethally poisoned by an adder, try quaffing the biggest stacks of potions first.
