The Tonic is a power skill which grants up to 100% of the player's health as blue bonus health, working as temporary health for 10 seconds. During those 10 seconds, the player is given a 20% damage reduction and full protection from the Malaise from all sources, as well as a slight speed buff.


  • Special Effects:
    • Gives the player a 50-100% (base-max) bonus health that works as health until Tonic's power runs out.
    • Generates a force field for a very short period upon activation.
    • Reduces all damage taken by a flat 20%.
    • Gives the player a speed boost. Along with increasing their speed, it also decreases the cooldown in which the player can dodge roll, allowing them to roll quicker and more often.
  • Tags: NoDamage, Heal, HasDuration
  • Legendary Version: Miracle
  • Forced Affix: Run Speed on Use
  • "Increases movement speed for 10 seconds."


  • The cooldown starts after the effect has ended.


  • 1.1: No longer heals a flat amount of health and instead uses a percentage.
  • 1.9:
    • No longer heals a percentage of the player's health, instead gives the player bonus health and reduces incoming damage for its duration.
    • Now has a regular cooldown mechanic like other skills, instead of being consumed permanently until the player enters a new biome or drinks their health flask.
    • Now also protects against the Malaise while it’s active.
  • 2.1: No longer protects against the Malaise due to the malaise rework.
