How to Make and Use Potions in Dragon’s Dogma 2

Low on health? Create and consume the HP restoration potions in Dragon’s Dogma 2 with these steps.

If you keep foraging for fruits, herbs, and other craftable materials and let them stay in your inventory, your character will reach the encumbrance limit. Leveling up can increase Max En, but that becomes tough at one point. While trading and a few other options are available to lessen the burden, your first choice should always be experimenting with them. Various combinations allow you to make restorative potions in Dragon’s Dogma 2, which you can use to recover your health in time of need. With that said, follow the steps to craft and consume them.
