Baldur’s Gate 3 has been grossing well since its release. There are numerous side quests along with the main ones that will keep you hooked on the game. Apart from that, players can have a romantic relationship with NPCs, which gives it a unique vibe compared to other RPG games. Anyway, in this guide, we aren’t going to share details on how to romance various characters in BG3, but rather how to throw potions in the game. So, if you are wondering the same thing, consider reading this guide until the end.
By now, you must know that you can throw weapons at your enemies and even at your allies. What it does is damage them, depending on the stats of the weapon. Why throw weapons, you may ask? It’s to compensate for your abilities that are either on cooldown or unusable. Now, this begs the question: can you throw potions just like throwing weapons? Let’s find out.
Baldur’s Gate 3 (BG3): How To Throw Potions
The simpler answer to that question is yes. You can. When it comes to throwing skills, this isn’t limited to weapons. Players can buy vials that contain healing or one-time usable skills. Then, they can use them for a one-time-use ability that may be unavailable on their roaster. In the same way, potions can be a huge help too. Normally, everyone carries a good load of healing potions at all times. So how do you throw them?
Throw the Potion
It works the same way as throwing weapons. Well, before throwing potions, one of the first basic requirements is the potion itself. You can buy them or loot them from the various chests. Then, you must equip it with the throw skill. You can do this by dragging the potion from either the Hotbar or inventory to the throw icon. Then, the throw skill will turn green, and now you can aim and shoot it.
Enemies or Allies?
During the battle, you may have seen that some enemies threw vials at each other and not at your team. What they are doing is throwing healing potions at themselves. This ends up healing them and prolonging the battle. Surprisingly, it’s a game mechanism that everyone can use. By throwing these potions at your allies, you can grant them healing. It even works on downed allies. But as always, there is a catch. If you straight up throw it towards the face, then they will take damage. Yes, even your allies aren’t safe from this. If someone throws a glass bottle at someone’s face or any other body part, it causes them harm. Well, it works the same way in Baldur’s Gate 3.
So, make sure not to target any body part of our allies while throwing potions. Instead, aim for the ground that is near their hitbox. Mostly, this will be your main source for healing multiple allies at once. The broken vile will create a small AOE healing area that can work on two or more characters. Using the right potion at the right time will decide the fate of the battle. That’s why you should always carry more than enough potions for exactly these kinds of situations. Also, remember that if the enemy is inside the healing AoE of your thrown potion, they will be healed too. That said, now you know how to throw potions in Baldur’s Gate 3.
