Offensive Potions or Throwing Potions in Diablo 2 are Potions that are used to replenish a variety of elements or to gain temporary buff that provide various effects. Potions can be obtained by killing Enemies, by opening crates or chests, or can be purchased from Merchants.

Throwing Potions

As far back as the Sin War, alchemical mages have studied the properties of the elements and combined them in various ways. Eventually, the mages developed some extremely toxic and volatile liquids. Many of these substances have proven to be effective weapons when placed in glass bottles and lobbed from a distance into groups of enemies. Some of these volatile grenades explode into fireballs when they shatter upon the ground. Others release thick clouds of toxic fumes that quickly poison and weaken the opponents enveloped within them.

How to use them

To ready a throwing potion for use, equip it as you would a weapon. The Left Action Icon changes to the Throw action. Left-clicking on a target tosses one of your readied potions at it. As you use them up, a potion icon appears in the Play Area to warn you that you are running low. When you run out of potions, your character automatically equips the item that had previously been in your hand. Throwing potions of the same type can be stacked up to 25 potions in a single inventory slot.

You can place Throwing Potions in your alternate Weapon Tab when you find them. You can then save them for backup and use them when you run into trouble.
