Potions of toughness are potions that, when drunk, increase the PC's Toughness. Blessed potions increase it by 2, uncursed by one. Cursed potions reduce Toughness; the reduction is thought to be higher if the PC is cursed and/or doomed. As with all stat raising potions, if the stat is already at its potential then the potential will be raised accordingly.

Like a potion of potential toughness, a potion of toughness will also provide a great deal of satiation if drunk.


High Toughness scores are of great value to any player, so these should be blessed and then drunk immediately (unless the player is in the middle of morgia root training).

The satiation that this potion provides can also be of great value if the player turns hungry in the middle of a prolonged battle, since it can be drunk in one turn, but still provides easily enough satiation for hundreds of turns. Though, as far as battles go, having the extra toughness points is more important than emergency satiation. Save a scroll of satiation or a potion of potential toughness instead.

Guaranteed/Common sourcesEdit

They can be obtained in the same manner as all generic loot.
