Health Orb in Diablo 4

So, what is a Health Orb or Health Globe in Diablo 4? Well, it’s a shiny ole red sphere, which you’d assume recharges your health. After all, that’s what it did in Diablo Immortal. Welp, that’s not exactly what it does in Diablo IV. No, it actually recharges the amount of health potions you have at your disposal (four being the maximum). Yes, it seems like the developers have kinda sorta reworked the Dark Souls system and have given you a limited number of healing flasks. You use them by hitting Q on PC; I don’t know what the equivalent is on consoles. A Health Orb will not restore any health when you interact with it, only the potions. Always keep that in mind and plan accordingly.

That’s basically all you need to know about what a Health Orb or Glove in Diablo 4 is and what it does. I am sure that the change in the mechanic has caused a lot of confusion among veteran players. Hopefully, we’ve cleared things up a bit now. Once more for the cheap seats in the back: the Health Orb doesn’t replenish health, only health potion charges, of which the default maximum is four. That’s all there is to it. If there’s something else confusing you in Diablo 4, allow me to redirect you to our other guides.
