A Potion is a unique item in the game that can give you special abilities. You can make a potion out of a variety of things. Potions can be brewed in a Brewing Stand which is crafted with 3 cobblestone and a blaze rod, which you can obtain by killing a Blaze. The main starter ingredient to potions are Nether Warts, potions can be started with other ingredients but it is easiest to start with Nether Warts.

Making Potions

  1. You will require a brewing stand, Glass Bottle (can be crafted using 3 glass), and a source of Water to fill the bottles. 
  2. Start by filling the Glass bottles with water by right clicking on a water source, or a Cauldron. Once you have finished filling the bottles, you can begin Brewing.
  3. Slot your Water Bottles inside the Brewing Stand and put your first ingredient (Usually Nether Warts) in the top slot.When it finishes brewing, you should have an Awkward Potion if you used a nether wart.
  4. Once you have an Awkward Potion, you can put other ingredients in the top slot to create several different effects.

TIP: If you're not sure what ingredients do what, read on to Potion Recipes.

Ingredients

Ingredients have a wide range of effects, most of which develop the type of potion, with a few ingredients that specify the potion.

Bases

Bases are key ingredients that typically start of the brewing process. Bases are the first ingredient added. The most commonly used base is the Nether Wart as it trails-off to the largest range of possible potions.

Secondary Ingredients

Secondary ingredients are the ingredients that determine the type of potion (in other words, the effect).

Converters

Converters describe the aspects of the current potion. It can alter length-of-effect, positivity, or use.

Extending Potions

When reading the potion recipes, you probably ask what's the difference is between Poison, Poison II, and Poison ext? The regular poison potion has its normal affects that come naturally when first crafted. If you add Redstone Dust to it, it makes the potion last longer, thereby creating Poison ext (Adds ext. at the end of the potion name). If you add Glowstone Dust to it then it makes the potion more potent, meaning the effects are stronger, thereby creating Poison II (Adds a roman numeral equivalent to n+1 where n is how many time you have brewed that potion with another glowstone). This applies to most potions, save for potions with an instant effect (ie. Harming or Healing.) which do not have the option of becoming ext. This is also true for potions with an effect that cannot have its potency increased (ie. Invisibility since you cannot become even more invisible than you already are.) which do not have the option of gaining a roman numeral to its name.

Glowstone Dust- Increases the potency of any potion.

Redstone Dust- Extends the effects of any potion.

Potion Effects

The following effects only apply to the regular potion without any duration or potency extents.

  • Weakness - Reduces all melee attacks by 1 heart damage. This will also make it so a player cannot cause damage without a weapon.
  • Strength - Adds 1 and 1/2 heart damage to all melee attacks with or without a weapon.
  • Regeneration - Restores health over time by approximately 1 heart every 2.4 seconds.
  • Swiftness - Increases player's walking speed, sprinting speed, and jumping length by 20%.
  • Slowness - Player's movement is slowed to a crouch for 1 minute 30 seconds.
  • Healing - Restores 3 hearts instantly.
  • Harming - Inflicts 3 hearts of damage.
  • Fire Resistence - Gives immunity to damage from fire, lava, and ranged Blaze attacks.
  • Night Vision - Makes everything appear to be at max light level, including underwater areas.
  • Invisibility - Renders the player invisible. Equipped/wielded items are still visible.
  • Water Breathing - Lets the player to breath underwater.
