How to get more potions in Final Fantasy 16

Potions are littered throughout the map in Final Fantasy 16, so you're encouraged to use them as often as you like. Generally speaking, you find more before boss arenas or challenging hunts. As well as this, picking up potions when your inventory is full will automatically use one. This means that it is almost always worth picking them up.


If you can't find potions on the ground, you can buy some from Charon in the Hideaway. They aren't hugely expensive, and you get a lot of Gil throughout the game, so it's not a big deal to spend your Gil on it.
