Flasks

They may not be as flashy as a powerful weapon or armour item, but flasks in Path of Exile will literally mean the difference between life and death.

Carefully consider your flask modifiers. They can make all the difference.

Flasks in Path of Exile are not consumable items. Unlike Scrolls of Wisdom, when you use a Flask, it does not vanish. Instead, it simply consumes a number of flask charges based on the flask you're using, and, once empty, must be refilled before it can be used again. Flasks can come in normal, magic or unique rarity, but not rare. Usually, flasks refill as you slay monsters. This means as long as you're successfully engaging in combat, you should always have a flask or two available for use. But if you get into a spot of trouble and empty your flasks, you'll either have to carefully slay enough monsters to refill them or return to Town. Your flasks also refill when you return to Town, so jumping into a portal is a valid strategy when you're running low on flask charges. Some flasks, such as those with the 'Surgeon's' prefix, can be refilled based on other conditions.

It's helpful to have a mix of different flasks for different situations.

Other magic mods can enhance the amount of life or mana a flask restores, or the duration it lasts, or the number of times it can be used. Some also provide extra utilities, such as removing curses or ailments. Carefully selecting your flasks and which mods they have is just as important as selecting which weapon to wield or passive skills to take. If ever you are struggling to survive, take a look at your flasks and see if improvements can be made. They are often a cheap and effective place to start solving character build problems.

Flasks are friends! Don't be afraid to use them often.

    Flask

    A flask is a rechargeable potion. When used, the flask consumes a certain amount of flask charges and recovers a portion of life1Life, manaMana or grants temporary bonuses for the duration of the flask effect.

    Mechanics

    Every character has space for five flasks. When the player enters a town or a hideout, all of their flasks are automatically fully recharged. If a player equips a flask within a hostile area, the flask has zero active charges by default.

    Flasks can only be Normal , Magic or Unique. There are no Rare flasks, and flasks cannot be corrupted.

    Flask charges

    Flasks store different amount of charges and spend different amount per sip depending on flask type. These parameters can be altered with modifiers on equipment, flasks and passive skills. Partial fraction charges are stored but not displayed in the game.

    Used flask charges can be refilled in several ways:

    • by killing enemies; a Normal monster grants 1 charge, a Magic monster grants 3.5 charges, a Rare monster grants 6 charges, and a Unique monster grants 11 charges;
    • Pathfinder's passive AlchemistGiftNature's Boon recovers charges over time;
    • on a critical strike for flasks with Surgeon's prefix, while having TheExtractorThe Harvest equipped, through a Precision Watcher's Eye or with the Pathfinder's passive MasterSurgeonMaster Surgeon. Flask charges gained this way can only occur once every 100ms and gives a charge to one flask at a time;
    • receive a critical strike while having a flask with Avenger's prefix.

    The amount of charges gained from any sources can be altered with modifiers #% increased/reduced Flask Charges gained (e.g. from equipment and passive skills) and #% increased/reduced Charge Recovery (e.g. from the "Perpetual" flask prefix). These modifiers stack multiplicatively.

    Within a party, all players close to the killed enemy get charges.

    Recovery from flasks

    Certain flasks recover life1Life and/or manaMana over time. Flasks end their respective effects if maximum life or mana is reached. Hybrid flasks, which affect both life and mana, will end their effects if both life and mana are fully recovered. Recovery flasks queue up if multiple flasks are active. The effect with the highest regeneration rate is always applied first.

    There are 3 parameters that affect recovery from flasks:

    • #% increased/reduced Amount Recovered causes a flask to recover an increased/reduced amount. The duration is unchanged.
    • #% increased/reduced Recovery Speed/Rate causes a flask to recover the same total amount at a faster/slower rate.
    • Instant Recovery cause a flask to restore the whole amount instantly by overriding the duration to 0.

    Modifiers to effect of Flasks does affect recovery amount and is multiplicative with increased recovery from flasks as well as flask quality. Modifiers to Flask effect duration increase the duration of the flask without decreasing the amount recovered per second, effectively acting as a multiplier to amount recovered, if the flask recovery is not instant. It does not affect recovery amount directly.

    Effects of flasks

    Flask effects are temporary effects that are granted while drinking a flask. This include implicit modifiers on utility flasks, certain flask suffixes and modifiers on unique flasks, but doesn't include life or mana recovery. Flask effects can be identified by having a specific gold border around the icon. Note that they do not count as buffs (for more information see active and temporary effects).

    Effects of flasks as well as their durations can be increased with several flask modifiers, passive skills and equipment.

    When activating multiple flasks, differing suffixes can apply and stack simultaneously but only one application of a particular suffix can apply to your character at one time, with the greatest value of said suffix taking priority.

    Example: activating multiple flasks

    Example: Say you have a

    If you activate the jade flask initially, you get a +20% movement speed bonus. If 0.5 seconds later you activate the ruby flask, you will then have +30% movement speed – the original 20% movement speed effect still has 4.5 seconds left, but is overwritten by the stronger effect temporarily. If 0.5 seconds later you activate your granite flask, then you have +30% movement speed and +100% armour. The armour and movement speed mods are different suffixes, so they don't conflict – they will stack together. 3 seconds later your ruby flask effect ends, but the jade flask still has 1 second left, so you revert to the +20% movement speed from the jade flask until it expires.

    Quality

    For more information, see Quality.

    CurrencyFlaskQualityGlassblower's Baubles are used to increase the quality of a flask. Quality on recovery flasks increases the amount of life and/or mana recovered by that percentage. Utility flasks gain increased duration instead. Note that quality on flasks stacks multiplicatively with other modifiers to flasks (for example, the increased flask duration nodes from the passive tree or belts). Furthermore, things with increased flask effect will not only improve the implicit mod of a flask, but any of the mods that the flask has rolled (always rounded down).

    Interactions

    Flask effect removal

    Nemesis monsters can have a modifier called nullifier. This will remove all temporary buff effects on a character. This means all active flask effects will be removed every time you are hit by one of these monsters.

    Instant Flasks

    Sextants can add the following modifier to a watchstone: Player's Life and mana recovery from flasks are instant.
