This guide will tell you everything you need to know about Below the Stone Potions, how to craft them, and where you can find Flasks!

You'll surely spend most of your time in Below the Stone hunting for Resources and Mining valuable Ores, but sometimes you'll need a little boost to survive the tougher areas. Potions can heal you or give you powerful Buffs -- read on to learn everything you need to know about the Elf's alchemical concoctions!

The Elf can brew many useful Potions for you if you have the correct ingredients -- and the Flasks to put them in.

How to Craft Potions

Crafting Potions is a fairly straightforward process in Below the Stone; you'll need the correct type of Flask and all of the needed ingredients. Once you have them, you can speak with the Elf to instantly make the Potion. It will then be deposited on your Hotbar or in your Inventory.

While finding the Resources for Potions can be challenging, the bigger issue is finding Flasks; they're not exactly easy to find unless you know where to look.

Where to Get Flasks for Potions in Below the Stone

There are two ways to get Flasks for Potions in Below the Stone:

  1. Buying them from the Goblin
  2. Finding them as Loot in Chests or Dungeons

Buying Flasks from the Goblin is the most reliable way to get them as long as you have the Gold. Unfortunately, the Goblin's inventory is randomized. If he doesn't have any Flasks available, exit to the main menu and load the game again to reroll his inventory.
