A Water Lingering Potion
|Uses||Applying Status Effects to players.|
|Data Values||Hex: 1B9|
Like splash potions, lingering potions are thrown. However, when the bottle hits a surface and breaks open, a low-floating cloud of the potion lingers in a vapor form for several seconds, affecting any Player or mob who walks into it. Lingering potions can also be loaded into a dispenser for Redstone-triggered attacks.
Note also that, when a Lingering Potion is used, the bottle is destroyed as opposed to simply being emptied when drink regular potions. As with all potions, lingering potions do not stack; therefore, a large reserve of glass bottles must be made in order to use many lingering Potions.
Lingering potions can also be used to put out Fires.
- Brew the desired effect into a standard potion
- Brew using Gunpowder to make a Splash Potion
- Brew using Dragon's Breath
Dragon's Breath is the vital ingredient used to turn splash potions into lingering potions. Dragon's Breath can be collected in a bottle (by right-clicking on the cloud) when the Ender Dragon in The End breathes the toxic cloud onto a player. The toxic cloud lingers for a while, and the vapor must be bottled quickly before the cloud disappears. A player must be careful while bottling the ingredient, however, since the cloud itself is toxic, and it will cause harm to whoever walks into it, even on Peaceful.
- The appearance of a lingering potion differs from that of a splash potion as the bottle does not have a handle or cork.
