I've been playing BG for some time now but I've only just realised in my last run-through how super and amazing those little blue healing potions are! They are gold dust.
What I mean is that you can use them IN COMBAT. If you take a hit, you can drink a potion there and then and then immediately go back into making attacks. And there's no gap. You can drink the potion and still get your attack in all in the same round. You don't have to wait for the following round because those potions pretty much work instantly.
So, from now on I'm treating those little blue potions with the respect they deserve, because they kind of make you indestructible - until you run out of them.
