A potion reservoir is a device which can be used to automatically consume doses of a potion. When a potion is used on an active reservoir, it will fill up and automatically consume the potion when the potion's effects run out. However, the reservoir cannot hold certain combination potions, regardless of timers.
Click on a potion reservoir (inactive) to activate it. Only one potion reservoir may be active at a time. Potions which are not on a timer cannot be added (e.g., super restores). To fill the potion reservoir, use a potion on an activated potion reservoir. Each potion reservoir can hold up to a 6 doses and cannot be refilled (or "topped off").
Potion reservoirs are not widely used due to the extra time and cost of making them for no measurable benefit, as a player in combat still typically has to constantly monitor the combat scenario they are in.
Despite this, the potion reservoir can be useful for killing dragons such as the King Black Dragon if you allow it to hold any kind of antifire, allowing for safer AFKing. The few thousand coins spent on the reservoir may be worth it compared to the cost of death.
