https://www.wizardingworld.com/features/ranked-the-best-and-worst-potions

 

The wizarding world has potions capableofforcing the drinker to spill their deepest secrets, or to be struck with powerfulobsessions for the one who desires them the most. Or... to break out intoboils. Whatever you need, really.

魔法世界有药水可以迫使喝了的人泄露他们最深的秘密,或者对最想要他们的人产生强烈的痴迷。或者爆发成水泡爆发成水泡你需要什么都行,真的。

 

Some potions carry the potential to even destroylives, but some are just there to offer a little extra luck – thanks, Felix Felicis.

有些药水甚至有可能毁掉生命,但有些药水只是为了带来一点额外的运气,谢谢你,福灵剂。

 

We’ve rankedthe best wizarding world potions from least to most useful, but if you don’t agree, we’ll assume we’ve accidentally drunk a bit of Babbling Beverage.

我们对魔法世界的药水进行了最强最弱的排名,但如果你不同意,就认为我们不小心喝了一点喋喋不休的饮料吧。

 

 

Forgetfulness Potion

失忆水

We’ve all hadawkward encounters we wouldlove to forget at some stage in our lives, andthankfully, there’s a potion forthat. But with Memory Charmsusually doing the job, is this potion reallynecessary? Perhaps if you don’t have a wand to hand and need someone to forget somethingon thesly...

我们都有过尴尬的遭遇,我们希望在人生的某个阶段忘记它们,幸运的是,有一种方法可以解决这个问题。但记忆咒通常可以起到作用,这种药水真的有必要吗?也许你手里没有魔杖,需要有人偷偷地忘记什么东西……

 

 

Confusing Concoction

混乱的混合物

 

This potion isn’t one we’d brew personally– there are enough confusing things in the world as it is. But we seetheappeal for mischief makers.

这药水不是我们自己酿造的,世界上有足够多令人困惑的东西。但我们看到了这对喜恶作剧者的吸引力。

 

 

Babbling Beverage

喋喋不休水

 

We all get a bit tongue-tied now and then.Aquick swig of Babbling Beverage and you’ll bechatting away for hours.Problem solved. Until the babbling itself becomes a newproblem.

我们有时都会有点张口结舌。如果你喝上一大口此药剂,问题解决了。甚至你可以一直说上几个小时,直到喋喋不休成为一个新的问题。

 

 

Hiccoughing Potion

打嗝药水

 

Ah the Hiccoughing Potion – ever so usefulif the hiccups are getting you down, but really, that’s it. But we imagine it’sa goodearly potion to teach to Hogwarts students learning the ropes.

啊,止嗝药水,如果打嗝让你情绪低落,那就太有用了。但说真的,仅此而已。不过我们觉得这是一个很好的入门药剂,可以教给霍格沃茨的新生来练习。

 

 

Wolfsbane Potion

狼毒药剂

 

We see an unusually helpful SeverusSnapebrew this for Remus Lupin to help maintain his human intelligence whenhechanges into a werewolf. For werewolves nearing a full moon, this potion canbethe difference between staying non-threatening or turning into adangerousbeast – we’re sureLupin would rank this beverage number one.

我们知道是西弗勒斯·斯内普为莱姆斯·卢平调制了这瓶药水,以帮助他在变成狼人时保持人类的智力。这种药剂可能是维持不具危险性或变成危险的野生动物的关键。我们相信在卢平那会把这种饮料排在第一位。

 

 

Ageing Potion

老化药

 

As far as we know, the Ageing Potion only worksto make you older – if it worked the otherway round and Muggles foundout about it, we’re sure itwould be flying off the shelves at every make-upcounter. And, as Fred andGeorge learnt, there are magical ways of detectingyou’ve used such a potion, should you be trying to cheat your waythrough anage gate, for example.

据我们所知,老化药剂只会让你变老——如果它反过来起作用,并且麻瓜发现了它,我们肯定它会在每个化妆品柜台被卖空。而且,正如弗雷德和乔治所了解到的,有一些神奇的方法可以发现你用过这种药剂,比如你就不能骗过火焰杯。

 

 

Elixir of Life

永生水

 

A potion that results in eternal lifeforthe drinker, as long as you keep drinking it. Nicolas Flamel loved thistipple,but immortality comes with its own consequences.

只要你坚持喝下去,这种药水就会给喝的人带来永生。尼可·勒梅喜欢这种药水,但永生也是要付出代价的。

 

 

Amortentia

迷情剂

 

On the surface (and for those harbouringacrush), the world's strongest love potion sounds pretty exciting. But oncloser inspection, Amortentia and other love potions are pure trouble. Alas, itdoesn’t create real love, just intense obsession.Look at how Lord Voldemort was born...

从表面上看(对那些暗恋的人来说),世界上最强的爱情药水听起来相当令人兴奋。但仔细想想,迷情剂和其他爱情药剂纯粹只是制造了麻烦。因为它创造出的只是强烈的痴迷,而不是爱情。看看伏地魔是怎么出生的就知道了……

 

 

Draught of Living Death

生死水

 

The Draught of Living Death – a potion tosend the drinker into a deep sleep which resemblesdeath. We wouldn’t recommendtrying this one as of yet; it’s currently unclear on how to awaken from thispotion. If we ever didfind out – we’d besnoozing away untroubled every night.

生死剂,一种使饮用者进入类似死亡的深度睡眠状态的药剂。目前我们不建议尝试它,因为我们还不清楚如何从这种药剂中醒来。一旦我们真的发现了,可能每天晚上人们都可以安然入睡了。

 

 

Veritaserum

吐真剂

 

This powerful truth serum is what is usedonBarty Crouch Jr. at the end of Goblet of Fire, so you know it's made ofstrongstuff. With a bottle of this in the back of the cupboard, there’d be nopretending to mum it wasn’t you whokicked a football through the back window -ever again.

这种强大的真相药剂在火焰杯的末尾用在了小巴蒂·克劳奇身上。所以你知道它是由强大的药材制成的。如果橱柜后面有一瓶吐真剂,你就不能再对妈妈假装不是你把足球踢入后窗踢了。

 

 

Pepperup Potion

提神剂

 

There’s only somuch hot water, honey andlemon can achieve, despite what our Mugglegrandparents may say. For thewizarding world, only Pepperup Potion will do.Curing a cold far quicker, thispotion seems like the holy grail of usefulconcoctions, even if it does leaveyou smoking at the ears for hours after..

不管我们的麻瓜祖父母怎么说,热水、蜂蜜和柠檬能达到的效果是有限的。对魔法世界来说,只有提神剂才管用。治愈感冒的速度要快得多,这种药水似乎是有用的混合物中的圣物,甚至它会让你在接下去几个小时里用耳朵吸烟。

 

 

Polyjuice Potion

复合汤剂

 

Polyjuice Potion gives the drinkertheability to take another’s appearance – which can be a good or bad thing, as welearnt. The potion isdefinitely one of the most useful, but with any smallmistake, can also turn youhalf-cat. So while Polyjuice Potion was used forgood (such as the Order of thePhoenix transforming themselves into ‘sevenHarrys’ to protect Harry on a flight) we all know how damaging it can beifyou’re a Death Eater with an agenda...

我们知道,复合汤剂能让饮用者变成他人的外貌,这可能是好事,也可能是坏事。这种药水肯定是最有用的,但只要有一点小错误,就会让你变成半只猫。还有当复合汤剂被用在正当用途时(比如凤凰社把自己变成‘七个哈利’来保护飞行中的哈利),我们设想一下如果你是一个有任务有目标的食死徒,它会有多麻烦……

 

 

Draught of Peace

缓和剂

 

While Muggles opt for a cup of tea,wizardsand witches have the Draught of Peace (a concoction to ease agitation ofthedrinker). Sounds ideal, really.

当麻瓜们选择喝茶时,巫师们喝的是缓和剂(一种减轻焦虑的药水)。听起来真的很不错。

 

 

Felix Felicis

福灵剂

 

Of course, there was only one logicalnumberone. Here lies the potion that could bring you a lottery win, goodweather fordays, or in Harry’s case, an unspoiled memory fromProfessorSlughorn. It can even serve as a bit of a placebo: Ron found he wasbetter atQuidditch just by thinking he had drunk some of this. The potion isimmenselytricky to brew, but it might be worth becoming a fully-fledgedPotioneer justto swing the odds a little better in your favour.

这里有一种药水,只要你有一个合乎逻辑的数字,就可以让你的彩票中奖、或者几天的好天气,或者在哈利的情况下,得到斯拉格霍恩教授的完整的记忆。它甚至可以起到一点安慰剂的作用:罗恩认为自己喝一点福灵剂能在魁地奇比赛中表现的更好。这种药剂非常难熬制,但为了能让你的胜算更大一点,成为一名伟大的药剂师或许是值得的。
