HP Potions (Japanese: 回復ポット, Kaifuku potto, Recovery Pots) are items and battle mechanics in Xenoblade Chronicles 2 and Torna ~ The Golden Country. They appear as green phials on the ground during battle. Some Driver Arts, such as Rex's Anchor Shot, or Specials can cause them to drop from enemies they hit. Any ally in battle can pick them up to restore HP to all allies engaged in battle, as well as slightly build the Party Gauge.
AI-controlled Drivers will only move to pick up HP Potions if they have at least one healing Blade equipped. Without any healing Blades equipped, they may still unintentionally pick them up.
HP Potions sizes
HP Potions come in three sizes:
- A Small HP Potion appears when an enemy is successfully hit by an HP Potion Driver Art. (If the Art hits multiple times, only the first hit matters). There is a 10% chance per level of the Art to drop 2 instead of 1. Some Specials drop HP Potions. Small HP Potions restore 10% HP.
- A Medium HP Potion appears when an enemy is inflicted with Topple or Launch. Medium HP Potions restore 25% HP
- A Large HP Potion appears when an enemy is inflicted with Smash. Large HP Potions restore 40% HP.
In Torna ~ The Golden Country, Small HP Potions recover 8% HP, Medium HP Potions recover 20% HP and Large HP Potions recover 32% HP.
