Diablo 4 Healing Vial (Potions): Levels, Upgrade Costs & Effects

Everything you need to know about the Healing Vial in Diablo 4, from the upgrade costs and level requirements to its increasing effects.
Diablo 4 Healing Vial (Potions): Levels, Upgrade Costs & Effects

In Diablo 4, players all carry Healing Vials that store a limited number of Healing Potion charges for use in the battle against the followers of Lilith. It is arguably one of the most important items for your character, so this guide teaches you how to upgrade Healing Vials in Diablo 4.

We cover the level and upgrade materials required to increase the power of your Healing Vial in Diablo 4, alongside how these upgrades affect the all-important mechanic, so let's get started.

Update on 24 March 2023: We've updated this article with the latest information on Healing Vials aka Potions in Diablo 4.

Learn about the Diablo 4 Open Beta update and the issues/troubles players can expect when it kicks off on 24 March at 09:00 PST.

Please note: The Healing Vial information in this article is from the Diablo 4 Open Beta weekends and is subject to change at launch. As such, we will consistently update this article to bring you the latest possible information.

Diablo 4 Healing Potion Upgrade Cost, Levels & Effects

To start upgrading your Healing Vial, you will first need to unlock the Alchemist crafting vendor in Diablo 4. The Healing Vial has five (5) charges that can be replenished by picking up certain drops from killing or damaging strong enemies, elites, and bosses.

To get started, players will have access to five (5) charges, but they will start with a Weak Healing Vial. That's pretty weak... so how do you upgrade it?

Please note: At the time of writing, the information featured in the table below is from early beta details and is subject to change. This article features details from WoWHead. We will update the list as soon as more information becomes available.
