Once you’ll start playing Potion Craft, there will be a few things that might seem like they work a lot different compared to other games. One example is the process of making your potions stronger.
So, here is all you need to know to get the most out of your ingredients.
How to Make Stronger Potions in Potion Craft
In order to make the type of potion you need, you’ll first have to find it on the map and use the ingredients at your disposal to transport the potion icon on that map to the desired effect icon.
It looks like an outline of the potion icon you’re moving. To get there faster, you can grind the ingredients in your Mortar.
Once the Potion icon will stop on the effect you want, you can heat the cauldron to make a potion, but the strength of it will depend on one more factor: how much does the potion icon match the outline of the effect icon.
Getting the Best Effect
Potions come in three tiers – weak, normal, and strong. Getting a weak potion will simply require reaching the desired effect with the icon on the map.
The closer that potion icon matches the outline of the vial portraying the effect you want, the better your potion will be.
To get a normal potion, the icon has to be inside the outline, while to make strong potions, you’ll need the icon to match the outline perfectly. This is pretty tricky to do with ingredients alone. That’s why you should use the Ladle, which will bring the potion icon back to the center. Try to combine the effect of the ingredients with the Ladle to get the best possible outcome.
In the early game, you should always try to get the strongest potions possible, as money is very important at that point. But keep in mind that if you’ll save the recipe for a strong potion, you won’t need to fiddle with the icon placement to make it again.
So, aim to make the best version of the potion at least one to save the recipe.

Terraria: How to Find Every New Critter in 1.4.4 Update
The 1.4.4 update for Terraria introduces a handful of new critters into the game that you can find in various locations.
There have been quite a few additions to the 1.4.4 update of Terraria. One of these additions is the new critters that you can find in various locations throughout the game.
In this guide, we’ll have a look at what those critters are and how you can find them.
How to Find Every New Critter in 1.4.4 Update in Terraria
There are around four new critters that were added to the game in the 1.4.4 update. They’re as follows:
The Stinkbug is a tiny, flying critter that can spawn in the Forest biome. It’s quite easy to catch using a bug net, and you can use it as bait with a 10% Bait Power. Apart from that, you can also combine it with a Platinum Broadsword in order to create the Flymeal sword at a Honey pool.
The second critter is the Toucan which is a bird that can spawn on the surface, particularly in the Jungle biome. It has very little HP and zero defense, so if you want to catch it, you need to use a bug net. If you’re not careful, you can easily kill this bird due to its low health.
You can keep it inside a Toucan Cage (combine it with a Terrarium) and use it as decoration. However, do keep in mind that the Toucan will no longer be able to get outside of the cage after that.
Cockatiels come in gray and yellow variants, and you can normally find them in the Jungle biome, the same as the Toucan. Also, they have very little health with no defense, so using a bug net to capture them is a must.
As with the Toucan, you can use them as decoration by creating a Cockatiel Cage by combining your captured Cockatiel with a Terrarium.
Lastly, we have the Macaws which share the same spawning point as the previous two birds. They also have the same stats and can be placed inside the Macaw Cage to serve as decoration.
