Potions of cure corruption are potions that, when drunk, reduce the amount of corruption the PC has. Drinking a cursed potion will actually corrupt the PC; though the PC should try to bless potions of cure corruption before drinking them anyway. Approximate numbers for PCs with average Appearance score are the following:

  • Blessed — 0.75 corruptions removed
  • Uncursed — 0.3 corruptions removed
  • Cursed — 0.15 corruptions added

Due to the changes[1] introduced in version 1.2.0 PCs with low/high Appearance will have low/high tolerance towards corruptions. The number of corruptions removed will be lower for PCs with higher Appearance.

When thrown at monsters that have a corruption attack, they will cause a major amount of damage depending on B/U/C status. This also takes away the corrupting touch of the monster, any other special melee attack effects (PV penetration, paralysis, stat drain, poison, etc), and breath attack, regeneration, spawning, summoning, and teleportation abilities. In addition, using mindcraft on the monster will no longer incur corruption.


They are very useful to all players, especially in the later stages of the game. They are one of the items required to complete Gaab'Baay's Quests — opening the possibility of ultra endings.

Guaranteed/Common sourcesEdit

They can be obtained in the same manner as all generic loot. Guth'Alak will reward non-chaotic PCs with one each if they deliver a corpse of a very powerful chaotic creature from the following list — Keethrax, orb guardians, Keriax and black unicorns (the only non-unique creature in this list). The ice queen will reward the PC with 4 potions for completing her first quest. Minotaur emperor will drop (among other rewards) 3-4 potions when killed.
