Can Be Used From The Menu
You can also use heal items from the menu. Bring the cursor to the item you want to use, then press x and hold to use it.
Items Refill Upon Gameover
Both High Potion and Potion are refilled upon Gameover. So make sure to use a healing potion once HP is low.
Timely Healing To Automate Potion
Potions will be automatically used if you equip the accessory "Ring of Timely Healing". If you're having trouble using a potion during battle try using it.
|Ring of Timely Healing||Once Clive gets below a certain HP, it will automatically use the potion. |
*If you have both Potion and High Potion, the ring will prioritize using Potion first.
Command Torgal To Heal
You can also heal by commanding Torgal. However, it doesn't heal a lot and heals over time, so it is not very useful if you're looking for instant healing.▶Torgal Command & Heal Guide
Timely Strikes Or Torgal To Automate
Equip accessory "Timely Strike" Or "Ring of Timely Assistance" to automate command to Torgal. Use them according to your action game skills.
|Ring of Timely Strikes||Press □ to automatically use equipped Ability and Feat to do variety of attacks.|
|Ring of Timely Assistance||Commands Torgal automatically depending on Clive's attack. (Ring of Timely Strikes has the same effects)|
Use Limit Break To Heal
Using Limit Break will slowly heal and Clive will not go below 1hp. However, you can only use them when you have charged Limit Gauge so check your charge before using them.▶Limit Break Guide - How To Do & Effects
Use Phoenix's Flames of Rebirth
Use Phoenix's Ability "Flames of Rebirth" to heal the white gauge of Clive's HP while causing flames in the surrounding area. Use it when the HP is low.
Are There Healing Location & Magic?
Heal By Going Back To The Hideaway
Depending on your progress in the story, you will not be able to go back. However, going back will fully restore Clive's HP, so if you want to save Healing Items, it is recommended to return to The Hideaway.
Early Game Joshua Can Use Healing Magic
In the early game, you have a chance to control Joshua. Press the □ button to use Curaga. However, this will be the only time you can use a healing spell
