Surviving in Diablo 4 isn’t a walk in the park, especially if you’re brave enough to tackle the game in hardcore mode. One tiny slip-up and your character, nurtured over countless hours, could vanish into thin air, never to return. That’s where healing potions come into play. They’re your trusty sidekicks, ready to help you dust yourself off and get back into the fray. So, knowing how to upgrade potions in Diablo 4 is a bit of a must.
Now, these healing potions, all nine levels of them, don’t just level up as you do. So yes, you’ll need to stretch your legs a bit and pay a visit to a familiar NPC in the first town. And since Diablo 4 is chock-full of MMO mechanics, you’ll need some special raw materials for each new level.

How to Upgrade Potions in Diablo 4?
To give your potions a boost in Diablo 4, you’ll need to make a run for the Alchemist in Kyovashad, the game’s first settlement. Look out for the pestle icon on the map – that’s where you’ll find Veroka, the NPC who runs the shop. But remember, there’s a catch – you need to be at least Level 10 to upgrade your potions.
Regardless of your class, once you hit Level 10, you can start sprucing up your healing potions. Just pop over to the Alchemist and you can transform your Weak Healing Potions into Tiny Healing Potions for a mere 250 gold and 8 x Gallowvine.
But let’s be honest, second-level potions aren’t going to cut the mustard against Lilith. So, every 10 levels, you’ll want to level up your potions, unless you fancy being taken out by enemies in one fell swoop.
