How to Replenish Your Health in Prince of Persia: The Lost Crown?
Although Prince of Persia: The Lost Crown only releases on 18th January, numerous players are jumping into the free demo to experience this unique 2.5D side-scrolling adventure that takes the well-known franchise in a new direction. In this new title, players take on the role of an exceptional Persian warrior named Sargon as he embarks on various adventures in Mount Qaf.
You will encounter numerous foes and bosses on your travels and battling them is not always an easy task as they will throw everything at their disposal to stop your journey. As a result, you will take a hit to your health bar and you will need to replenish it before you can begin crushing your enemies again. Here are all the ways you can heal yourself in the game.
Here’s How You Can Replenish Your Health in Prince of Persia: The Lost Crown
These are the only consumable items present in the entire game and the primary way to replenish your health bar. Thankfully, you will acquire this very early in the game, just before your confrontation with General Uvuishka through Vahram. It can be consumed by pressing Q on the PC and the Up button on the D-Pad for all other consoles. They are usually replenished upon interacting with the Wak Wak Tree.
Resting at the Wak Wak Tree
This glowing golden tree is a source of life in the game and Sargon will regenerate his health bar upon interacting with it. As mentioned above, it will also replenish all empty health potion bottles. However, using this method will also respawn all enemies in your vicinity, which shouldn’t be a problem if you are attempting to farm more Time Crystals.
Using Athra Surges
If you follow through the story, you will know that Sargon belongs to a group of warriors called The Immortals and they can unleash powerful attacks known as Athra Surges. Although you can use them offensively early on, you can later use them to heal yourself. Later on, you can use an ability called Bahman’s Breath and create a healing spell that will heal Sargon if he stands on it. Do note that it costs a hefty two Athra charges to activate, so use them efficiently.
Those are pretty much all the ways to heal yourself in Prince of Persia: The Lost Crown. While your health pool is initially small, you can progress through the game and improve your amount of HP as well as the number of healing potions you can carry by meeting the Mage at the Magi Emporium store. You will have to save up on Time Crystals to do so but worry not, as we have covered that in another guide.
