I'm playing the demo of Dungeon Siege III and noticed that my hit points are not automatically regenerating. But I also did not notice any health potions to drink or something like that. Sometimes enemies drop these green, glowing orbs that give back some health, but I haven't found other ways of regaining my hit points.

What ways are there in Dungeon Siege III to replenish my hit points?

Hit points are regained from :

  • Green orbs
  • Defensive skills (activated with spheres)
  • Skill bonuses that gives hit point from hits on enemies
  • Vampiric weapons (??)
  • Saving game

Each character has a health ability that they can use if they have enough will (mana). Other than that, the orbs that enemies drop are the only way to restore health/will. There are no potions.

You can also regain health by saving the game.

By saving, or by saving and then loading the same save? – Kissaki Jun 12 '11 at 13:46
Saving seems to be not enabled in the demo, at least I never found an option for it. – Mad Scientist Jun 12 '11 at 20:30
@Fabian Yup! There's a savepoint right at the start of the second stage, and all it does is show a message about this being only a demo. – badp Jun 13 '11 at 7:17
@Kissaki: When you save, it fully restores your health and focus. – Ullallulloo Jun 21 '11 at 19:01
@Ulla Not quite. Focus is not restored. And you don't actually have to save, just using the save point to open the saving screen is enough to restore your health. – bwarner Jun 23 '11 at 2:58
