    Thanks everyone for making my first guide relatively popular on YouTube! This was requested a few times, so I decided I'd do it. It's a comprehensive guide on how to create every new buff potion in Terraria, and well as where to find all of the ingredients, and a simple water bottle farming method. Hope you enjoy it!

    You don't actually have to be IN water to craft the Water Bottle. You just have to be near it.

    Already knew this stuff but thanks for the video! Now I can simple give this link to my friends in which they should be able to do it without asking me constantly on what it takes to make a certain potion :D

    Just letting you know that Night Owl does nothing, and Ironskin actually gives 10 defense. Try it and see, hehe :3

    Yeah, I didn't notice anything happening when i used Night Owl, but when it's fixed later, the video will still be valid if I say that it "improves vision at night".

    Unless it does something completely different~ Though what I'm betting/hoping it does is make light sources more prominent, which would make sense!

    this guide is wrong, i grew fire blossoms above the underground level. I have 2 rows of fire blossoms submerged in lava in the dirt layer

    I'll second that. You can indeed grow Fireblossoms outside of Hell. Mine's up on the surface with ash being inside a planter made out of glass with a couple buckets of lava in amoung the flowers.

    Hmm. That's interesting, you were right! I couldn't grow the blossom above ground, so I just went with what the wiki said. I'll add an annotation.

    Perhaps you might want to remake it? It is being featured by the Dev Team afterall ^^/ btw congrats on the feature.

    I don't think i'll redo it, but i'll do better on future update guides. By the way, TO isn't run by the Dev-Team. Just trying to avoid confusion.

    Maybe not entirely but the dev team are staff here as well. *points at Blue*
