The Potion of Levitation is a beneficial potion.

Its class name in save files is "com.​watabou.​pixeldungeon.​items.​potions.​PotionOfLevitation".


Potion of Levitation
Drinking this curious liquid will cause you to hover in the air, able to drift effortlessly over traps. Flames and gases fill the air, however, and cannot be bypassed while airborne.


The Potion of Levitation can be found randomly at regular depths (not at Boss depths), and in Shops, or as a random drop from Dwarf warlock or brewed through alchemy. In addition, there is always a Potion of Levitation at a depth with a room of traps.

When drank

The levitating buff is applied to the Hero/ine for a duration of 20 turns, enabling him/her to float over objects like traps, without triggering them, vegetation without trampling it, and chasms without falling into them.

While levitating, you cannot extinguish fire because you hover over water.

  • Drinking this potion enables the Hero/ine to negate the Rooted debuff, which is helpful when wearing Entanglement-inscribed armor, or when rooted by a Cave Spinner's web.
  • This potion can be used to retrieve scrolls on top of traps (namely: Fire traps, Alarm traps, and Summoning traps), without triggering the trap.
  • Levitating functions like wearing a +2 Ring of Shadows, but only around sleeping enemies.
