  • Healing Shrines
  • Healing Potions
  • Bandages
  • Field Rations (Ranger Ability)
  • Second Wind (Fighter Ability)
  • Healing Spells (Cleric)

Unless you pick one of these three classes, you will have to rely on loot or shrines for healing. Keeping your health up is important, and we recommend healing after most fights if you get hurt. You can die extremely quickly if you aren't prepared, so keep your health up.

Healing Potions can be spotted quickly, as they are bright red and stand out in the dark. We typically found them on shelves, either stone shelves or bookshelves. Healing Shrines can be identified by the glowing white orb in a statue's hands. Interact with these to use their healing benefits.
