How to Get More Potions in Final Fantasy XVI

In Final Fantasy XVI, Clive can only hold a small number of consumables like standard Potions, High Potions, and Elixirs. You may wonder how to restock, as well as if it’s possible to eventually carry more. You can! However, from what I saw, for the first 70% of the game, you’re always capped at Four potions, three High Potions, Two Stoneskin Tonics, two Strength Tonics, two Lionheart Tonics, and two Elixirs. However, it is very easy to refill that stash.

How do I get refill Potions in Final Fantasy XVI?

There are quite a few ways! Potions and High Potions both turn up rather frequently as glittering items scattered around stages. I’ve even found multiples of them immediately after fights or boss encounters designed to be particularly challenging. If you already hit your limit on them, then picking them up will cause them to be immediately used. This means if Clive is low on health, it’ll restore him without you needing to act. I’ve also seen potions like Stoneskin and Strength Tonics in chests.

Another means of getting all of them is via merchants like Charon. These cost gil then, naturally. Here are their prices:

  • Potion – 200 gil
  • High Potion – 400 gil
  • Elixir – 10,000 gil
  • Strength Tonic – 700 gil
  • Stoneskin Tonic – 600 gil
  • Lionheart Tonic – 500 gil

Remember to equip the potions you want to use in battle via the main menu. In that section, you can assign them to the up, right, and down buttons on the D-pad.

You need to wait until the sidequest “Weird Science” unlocks once you hit about the 70% point. This comes after Clive shatters the third mothercrystal. Once that happens, you can find this sidequest from Owain in Mid’s workshop at the hideaway. It lets you carry six Potions, four High Potions, three Strength Tonics, and three Stoneskin Tonics once you finish it.

Final Fantasy XVI is available for the PlayStation 5. There is a six-month exclusivity period.
