In Rise of the Ronin, the key to surviving and prevailing in battle even with multiple wounds suffered is using means of healing, such as pills, or health-regenerating skills. On this page of our guide, we describe all main ways of replenishing health and show where to obtain or renew the supply of different variants of healing items. Additionally, you can learn more about skills that regenerate health and increase health bar capacity, as well as the importance of healing allies.

Medicinal Pill

1 - Rise of the Ronin: How to heal yourself and your allies? - FAQ - Rise of the Ronin Guide
  1. The Medicinal Pill is the most basic means of healing the hero that can also be used mid-battle. Make sure you have the Pill equipped in one of 4 item quick select slots - thanks to this, you can heal by simple pressing of one of the d-pad buttons.
  2. Consuming a Medicinal Pill replenishes a chunk of your health bar, and additionally fully restores Ki (stamina).
2 - Rise of the Ronin: How to heal yourself and your allies? - FAQ - Rise of the Ronin Guide
  1. Pills are often found as loot, but there is a restriction as to how many of them you can carry at once. All Medicinal Pills above the limit are moved to Storage.
  2. After exhausting your supply of Pills, you can use a different type of medicinal item or return to any Veiled Edge Banner - interacting with them replenishes the supply of medicinal items by taking them from the Storage.
  3. You can increase the limit of carried Medicinal Pills. This is done via Refill (Medicinal Pills) skill - you'll find one perk of this type in each skill tree. Each bought skill of this type increases the limit of carried Medicinal Pills by 1. We recommend investing in these types of skills, as additional healing items will be useful especially when facing difficult/extended boss battles that don't allow returning to a Veiled Edge Banner in the middle of them.

Healing Elixir

  1. A Healing Elixir is more potent version of a Medicinal Pill. It is a good choice in situations where your hero is on the brink of death and has to receive a serious health boost right away. Make sure to place the item in one of 4 item slots.
  2. Unfortunately, you can only carry as many as 3 at the ready, and this value cannot be increased by buying skills.
4 - Rise of the Ronin: How to heal yourself and your allies? - FAQ - Rise of the Ronin Guide
  1. You can find elixirs as loot as well as craft them on your own - to do that, visit any Apothecary in the world of the game and go to the Crafting tab.
  2. To produce Healing Elixirs, you need common plants that can be encountered and collected while exploring the world. It's best to collected them on horseback, as you don't have to dismount in order to collect a plant.

Automatic health regeneration

5 - Rise of the Ronin: How to heal yourself and your allies? - FAQ - Rise of the Ronin Guide
  1. Another option is buying Auto-Life Recovery (Out of Battle) skill that can be found in Strength tree. Depending on the chosen Blade Sharpening Origin, it may be already learned or available for buying - in the second case, learn it as soon as possible.
  2. The described skill allows automatic health regeneration when out of combat, without spending medicine items. Thanks to it, you can save healing items and regenerate health even without having to return to a Banner.

Healing allies

6 - Rise of the Ronin: How to heal yourself and your allies? - FAQ - Rise of the Ronin Guide
  1. Healing Pills are also used to resurrect fallen allies - this is only possible in situations where you are accompanied by AI companions or other players (online coop).
  2. You can use this technique also to prevent your hero from dying. After you run out of health, the game will switch to a companion. As another character, run up to your kneeling hero and heal him. This will allow you to switch back to the protagonist and continue fighting.
