Finally, we have the chance to go back to the land of Orsterra, in an exciting game with a variety of items that can be used to aid players during battles. In this guide, we will take you through what the Octopath Traveler 2 forbidden elixir does.

The Forbidden Elixir has a label warning players not to drink it. This item can be intriguing, and players may wonder what would happen if they did decide to consume it. 

If you’re curious, keep reading this Octopath Traveler 2 forbidden elixir guide to find out!

What happens if you drink the forbidden elixir in Octopath Traveler 2?

Using the Forbidden Elixir during a battle has a unique effect on the player’s health. It will decrease the user’s HP to 1, which means you will survive, but just barely. On the plus side, it will fully restore your player’s BP/SP

This is quite a unique item in Octopath Traveler. There are other items that can provide similar effects without the HP reduction, like the Revitalizing Jam, but not to this extent. So, the Forbidden Elixir can be a helpful item in times of need, especially if you require the BP urgently.

Another use for the Forbidden Elixir is by combining it with a specific item called Alpione’s Amulet. The combination will cause an effect that allows the user to deal more damage to enemies the lower their HP is. We recommend that you use this alongside skills that allow characters to survive fatal attacks. This is because you would want to recover the HP after dealing damage.

If you decide that you are interested in obtaining the Forbidden Elixir, here’s how. You can steal it from a Hollowed Vessel in Lostseed, Brightlands. Or, you can farm the Forbidden Elixir by heading to the Guard Outpost in Conning Creek. Use the Thief’s skill Steal to acquire the item from mobs. 

With this information, now you can experiment with the Forbidden Elixir and see how it can help you in your battles. Looking for more guides? Make sure to check out how to beat for whom the clock tower tolls and a present for my son
