How to make a Stink Potion in Terraria

To make a Stink Potion in Terraria, you will need 1x Bottled Water, 1x Stinkfish, 1x Deathweed. You can then combine these ingredients in a Placed Bottle or at the Alchemy Table. This potion gives temporary buff that makes someone terrible for 30 seconds when thrown at them.

Potions are consumable items that are categorized into four major types: Buff Potions, Recovery Potions, Food/Drink Potions, and Flasks. Buff Potions add a temporary buff once consumed. Recovery potions restore mana, health, or a combination of the two. Food/Drink potions grant three food-related buffs when consumed. Flasks give temporary melee and whip-specific buffs when consumed. There are some additional potions in Terraria that don’t fit any of those categories, though!

An Alchemy Table is preferable if you are concerned about consumption of materials as it has a 33% chance not to consume the ingredients you’ve used to create a potion.
