The Forbidden Elixir is a mysterious item that you can find in the world of Soliatia in Octopath Traveler 2. But what does it actually do? We’re here to help you discover exactly that. In this guide, we’ll explain where and how you can obtain this rare item, along with its purpose and effects. Let’s take a closer look at the Forbidden Elixir!

What is Forbidden Elixir?

The Forbidden Elixir is a curious item featured in Octopath Traveler 2. While its description suggests it is a consumable item, the warning “DO NOT DRINK” makes its exact utility uncertain. It raises the question: What kind of consumable item is it if it is not meant to be consumed?

The Forbidden Elixir is a powerful item with extraordinary benefits. When consumed, it grants the user maximum BP and SP, though their Health Points will drop to only one point. This consequence may be worth the reward for those seeking to take full advantage of Alpione’s Amulet— an artifact that gives a great advantage when the user has exactly one point of HP.

To get Alpione’s Amulet, complete Ochette’s story and finish Alpione’s side quest. Doing so will grant you 10,000 Leaves, as well as the Alpione’s Amulet.

Guard Outpost

Octopath Traveler 2 offers two pathways for acquiring the Forbidden Elixir. The first method is through thievery, which requires players to progress through the story quest of Throne in Chapter 4 and unlock access to Lostseed, Brightlands. By stealing from a Hollowed Vessel located in this area, you can obtain the Forbidden Elixir.

The second method is by going to the Guard Outpost in Conning Creek. However, in order to access the Guard Outpost in Conning Creek, you must complete Osvald’s story quest up to Chapter 3. At this point in the narrative, your journey should take you to Conning Creek. Progress through the chapter, and you will get access to the Guard Outpost.

As soon as you reach the Guard Outpost in Conning Creek, take advantage of the Thief’s Steal skill to acquire the Forbidden Elixir from the enemies.
