Lingering Potions are a completely new class/type of potion (alongside standard potions and splash potions) revealed in The Combat Update. Like the Splash Potions, the lingering potions are thrown. However, the zone where the potion is thrown still has a low-floating cloud of the potion that lingers for several seconds and affects who or whatever walks into the cloud. Lingering potions are created when splash potions are infused with Dragon's Breath in a brewing stand.

Brewing Lingering Potions

To create a Lingering Potion:

  1. Brew the effect you want.
  2. Brew using gunpowder to make a Splash Potion.
  3. Brew using Dragon Breath.

The lingering potion, unlike the splash potion, does not have a handle and does not have a cork.

Dragons Breath

Dragon's Breath

Dragon's Breath is the vital ingredient used to turn splash potions into lingering potions. Dragons Breath is collected in a bottle (right click on the cloud) when the Ender Dragon of the End breathes the toxic cloud onto the player. The toxic cloud lingers for a while, and the ingredient must be bottled quickly before the cloud disappears. The player must be careful while bottling the ingredient, as the cloud itself is toxic and will cause harm to whoever walks into it.

Using Lingering Potions

Lingering Potions are thrown rather than consumed. When you right-click while holding a Lingering Potion, you will throw it, causing it to hit and affect all nearby mobs and/or players. It will also leave a cloud indicating the presence and strength of the potion effect. Lingering Potions can also be loaded into a dispenser for redstone-controlled attacks.

Note also that when a Lingering Potion is used, the bottle is destroyed, as opposed to simply being emptied when you drink from it, and, as with all potions, does not stack. Therefore, you must keep a large reserve of bottles if you wish to use many Potions.
