How to upgrade potions in Diablo 4

Potions are the quintessential health item in every Diablo game. These mystical elixirs can save you from the brink of death in a single swig if you're quick enough. Rather than allowing you to fill up your inventory with them like some other RPGs, Diablo 4 keeps your potions capped, but does allow you to make them more potent. This will be important as you level up and the enemies you come up against begin taking off greater and greater chunks of health with every hit. If you want to keep up with the damage scaling in Diablo 4, you will need to know how to upgrade your potions.

How to upgrade potions

When you arrive in the first major town of Kyovashad, you will find several shops inaccessible for the time being. One of these will be the Alchemist shop run by Veroka.

Step 1: Do any activity, such as main quests, side quests, world events, or dungeons, to gain enough experience to reach level 10.

Step 2: Once at level 10, you will be notified of a new quest called "Healing Potion Upgrading" you can start at the Alchemist.

Step 3: Travel back to Kyovashad and talk to Veroka.

Step 4: Choose the "I want to increase the potency of my healing potions" option.

Step 5: She will explain the process and open up the Upgrade Potion menu.

Step 6: As long as you have at least 2 Gallowvine, you can upgrade your Weak Healing Potion to the Tiny Healing Potion to increase the initial amount of health, as well as how much healing it does over time.

You can upgrade your health potion every 10 levels you gain, but will only be directed to the Alchemist this first time, so remember to go back and upgrade your potion manually. Each level will cost not only more materials but also a greater variety of them, so make sure you're gathering up all those plants as you travel around Sanctuary.

If you want to increase how many potions you can hold, that is done by increasing your Renown in each region.

How to change bot difficulty in Counter-Strike 2
A team groups up in Counter-Strike 2.

There's no denying that Counter-Strike 2 is one of the most hardcore and competitive FPS games on PC. One wrong move in this game can force you to wait out the rest of the round and leave your team a player down.

With such a long history and dedicated playerbase, the skill ceiling is intimidatingly high and you may not be able to keep up with those you're matched up against. Bot matches give you a chance to practice your skills and strategies in a less-stressful environment, though the challenge they provide may not be exactly right for you. There is a way to tweak them so you can find the perfect targets, but it's not very intuitive.

All Incantations and how to unlock them in Hades 2
Melinoe fighting under a full moon in Hades 2.

You can't have a game where you play as a witch without a massive cauldron. Hades 2 places one front and center in the Crossroads, but it isn't just there for decorative purposes. Melinoë can use this big boiling pot of green liquid to bring new features into the game, whether it be between runs or during them, in exchange for various materials like Silver. You will only start out with a few Incantations, but doing more runs and getting further toward your goal of killing Chronos will gradually unlock more to create. There are far more than you might expect for an early access game. Here are all the Incantations and their recipes.
Every Incantation, effect, and recipe
The order in which you unlock Incantations in the menu can vary based on what you do and how you progress in Hades 2, so this list is in no particular order. Also, it is possible there are more we haven't been able to unlock yet, so we will update this list if we discover any more or if additional ones are added during early access.

How to mine Silver in Hades 2
Art for Nemesis in hades 2.

Silver is one of the most important resources you can find in Hades 2. Unlike most others that drop after clearing a room, this precious metal must be mined from deposits around the map, leading to the question of how you can gather it. You may come across a glowing stone with the "Collect?" prompt, only to be told you cannot gather it without a special tool. That tool is none other than the Crescent Pick, but unlocking it is a bit obscure. It won't take you many runs to get what you need, so just follow our lead so you can start collecting Silver to make new weapons with.

Silver deposits will pop up around the environment as you navigate the randomly generated rooms, so you will need to keep an eye out for these glowing silver rocks. To gather that sweet material, you first need to unlock and acquire the Crescent Pick, which takes two steps.
