A Metrodvania adventure like Prince of Persia: The Lost Crown is always rife with danger, be it in the form of enemies wanting to cut protagonist Sargon down or the general environmental hazards that form much of the platforming challenge.
Unless you are a savant in the genre, chances are, Sargon will get hurt plenty of times. Each time the hero perishes, he will respawn at the latest Wak-Wak Tree, forcing players to cover previously explored territory to get to where they were. To prevent that, making smart use of healing potions will be vital to keeping players fit and ready for any more problems ahead, and this guide will provide the key info on how to make them even more useful.
Prince of Persia: The Lost Crown is Stuck Between a Rock and a Hard Place
Prince of Persia: The Lost Crown will be the first new Prince of Persia game in 13 years, and that means that it has a lot to prove the fanbase.
Upgrading Healing Potions Efficiency & Capacity in Prince of Persia: The Lost Crown
During the early tutorial sections in Prince of Persia: The Lost Crown, Sargon will obtain the Healing Potion. This tool will be by your side throughout the entirety of the game, but having only one use makes it extremely valuable, and running out of uses can mean the loss of much progress if death calls.
Thankfully, there are ways to improve both the Healing Potion’s effectiveness and Sargon’s carrying capacity. All of it comes down to the enigmatic mage sitting at the center of the Haven. Head to the tent, speak to the mage, and choose the buy option.
This will bring up a menu that first displays available amulets to purchase, and tabbing to the next menu reveals the two important upgrades that can be bought. The first will increase the number of Healing Potions that can be carried, up to a maximum of four at a time. The other will improve how much health is recovered by using a potion and can be upgraded to a maximum of four times as well.
Each level of upgrade will require more and more Time Crystals, the currency obtained from slaying enemies. In addition, the mage will demand Xerxes’ coins as well for the latter upgrades, so be sure to grab those whenever you spot them on Mount Qaf. This way, you can make sure you can always heal up when the time calls for it and not worry about losing progress when the times get tough.
