The Mystery Potions In BG3
Most of the potions are the primary part of the game, and you can access them with the game’s storyline.
But there are potions that you will encounter in random places that can not be bought from merchants or vendors.
Although the potions are rare in nature and serve unique purposes, some of them have adverse effects.
So, it is essential to examine and consider the usages and risks of the potions before consuming them.
These potions are unique in their ways and have a significant role in altering your gameplay.
The Mysterious Elixir
The Mysterious Elixir is one of the mysterious potions found on the Chamberlain’s desk in Nautiloid.
The most powerful characteristic of the elixir is that it can feign (fake) death for ten turns, making the player immune to damage.
As the player will be faking his death, he cannot move or perform any act until the potion effect remains.
Uses Of The Mysterious Elixir
First, you can use the elixir to escape dangerous situations, avoid traps and trick your enemies.
Secondly, you can survive any fatal blow, but this must be revived within ten turns.
It is essential to revive within the given timeframe, or else the player dies permanently.
One must use the mysterious elixir with precautions as it is not very readily available and is quite valuable.
The Drawbacks Of The Mysterious Elixir
Although the potion of Mysterious Elixir in BG3 is rare, it has some drawbacks, and they are:
The elixir can not be consumed by a character who is already dead, and those alive can only use it once.
Further, the player who has consumed the potion will be unable to perform any act due to feigned death.
Also, they will be more vulnerable to enemy attacks because they are at rest and passive under the influence of the elixir.

- Karabasan Gift: A mystery potion that causes a player or target to be paralyzed for one turn.
