Health Potions

From Diablo 4 Wiki

Health potions are used to refill a player's Health Globe and keep them alive.

A character loses Life through being hit by melee, ranged and magical attacks, but can also be affected by traps and objects bound to the physics engine behaviour.

Where to get Health Potions

Health potions can either be collected in the world from drops or created and purchased at an Alchemist.

Health points can be replenished with Health Globes that drop when monsters are killed. You just need to walk over these globes to gain health back in large chunks.
