Minecraft: How to Create Potions

Potions are one of the most complex and useful features in Minecraft, however, unlike crafting, the game offers little to no guidance for new potion brewers. Potions can be used to increase players’ strength, speed, stamina, and jump height, can induce superpower-like effects such as invisibility or water breathing, and can even be turned into area-of-effect weapons. throwable. In Minecraft endgame, these can be an absolute game changer.

Unlike most items in the game, potions aren’t really handmade. They’re crafted in a staging post, meaning players will have to adjust to a new interface and new mechanics, though thankfully it’s not too difficult once you get the hang of it. All kinds of potions are made with different ingredients, and modifiers can be used to make them stronger or in splash potions.


How to Create a Brewing Post in Minecraft

Before players can brew beer, they will need to get a brewing stand. Crafting one is quite simple and requires three pieces of cobblestone and a single flame rod. The Fire Rod will be placed in the center of the crafting area, with the three cobblestones filling the bottom row.

fire rods are obtained as loot from the mob of killing llamas in the Nether. Blazes appear in the Nether Fortresses, both naturally and due to the Blaze cages that appear in the fortresses. When one dies, there is a chance they will drop a fire rod, though a few may have to be killed before a player manages to get one. Flames are incredibly powerful, so you may want to have a recovery compass available in case you kick the bucket.

While only one is needed to make the brew stand, additional fire rods will be needed to create fire powder, which is used as fuel to make all potions. Each Flame Rod will produce two Flame Powders when placed on a workbench, and each Flame Powder can be used to craft up to 20 batches of potions.

How to Make Awkward Potions in Minecraft

The first step in making a potion is to make a awkward potion. This acts as the base for all potions. To create one, players will need to fill three glass bottles (made from three bowl-shaped glass blocks) with water and place them on the brew stand. In the top ingredient slot, a lower wart will need to be placed, and in the top left slot, fire powder will be added for fuel. This will produce three awkward potions.

lower wart is a cultivable ingredient that can be found in Bastian’s Remains Y Lesser Fortresses in the Nether, growing in the sand of the soul. Players can bring Soul Sand and Lesser Warts to the Overworld and farm them themselves, simply by placing the Lesser Wart in the Soul Sand and letting it grow normally, as they would carrots or wheat.

How to make more complex potions in Minecraft

Awkward potions have no effect when drunk, however additional ingredients can be added to them to make more complex and useful potions. Three awkward potions can be placed in the brew stand’s bottle slots, and a single ingredient can be added above to make three potions. After that, modifying ingredients can be added.

Here are all the base ingredients, as well as the effects they induce:

Ingredient potion type
Sugar swiftness potion: Increase speed by 20% for three minutes
rabbit foot jumping potion: Increase jump height by half a block for three minutes
glittery melon healing potion: Instantly heal two hearts of damage
Eye of spider poison potion: Reduces health by half a heart every 1.25 seconds for 45 seconds
Blowfish Water Breathing Potion: Allows the player to breathe underwater for three minutes
magma cream fire resistance potion: Makes players resistant to fire and lava damage for three minutes
golden carrot night vision potion: Allows players to see clearly in the dark for three minutes
fire powder strength potion: Increases the damage dealt by one and a half hearts for three minutes
Spectral Tear regeneration potion: Heals half a heart every 2.5 seconds for 45 seconds
Turtle shell Turtle Master’s Potion: Reduces damage taken and player speed by 60% for 20 seconds
phantom membrane slow falling potion: Reduces falling speed and nullifies falling damage for 90 seconds

Fermented Spider Eyes can also be used as potion ingredients, however they behave a bit differently. They are the only ingredient that can be added directly to a bottle of water to make a potion, and can be added to other existing potions to make new types:

Add fermented spider eye to… Get…
Water bottle Potion of weakness: Reduces damage dealt by two hearts for 90 seconds
night vision potion Invisibility Potion: Makes the player invisible for three minutes
healing potion either poison potion damage potion: Instantly deals three hearts of damage
swiftness potion either jumping potion slow potion: Reduce speed by 15% for 90 seconds

How to modify potions in Minecraft

Modifiers allow players to create stronger and more durable potions, or create splash or lingering potions, so that they can be used offensively. This is why players can make potions of negative effects like poison or slow, as these effects can be used against enemies if the potion is modified accordingly.

These modifiers are added in the ingredient slot with the potions below them and can be added to several different types of potions at once. The two main modifiers, red stone powder Y shiny stone powder will prove to be the most useful to players, so make sure you don’t leave any unmined when you reach the caves and the Nether. The ingredients of the modifier are explained in the following table:

modifier Effect
red stone dust Increases the duration of the potion by 166%.
Brilliant Stone Dust Increases the strength of the effect and decreases the duration (details vary by potion)
Gunpowder Create a splash potion and reduce the duration by 25%.
dragon breath (Added to Splash Potions) Creates a lingering potion, which leaves a lingering area of ​​effect on the ground that lasts 30 seconds.

When crafting potions, only a redstone or glowstone can be added to a potion, No both. Potion effects that are more powerful. Y A longer duration can be induced with commands, but unfortunately not in Survival Minecraft. Also, players should be careful what modifier they use for particular potions, as sometimes they will have no effect at all. For example, increasing the duration of an Instant Health potion would logically make no difference, although increasing its strength would.

When gunpowder is added, the strength of the resulting splash potion will depend on how direct a hit the player makes with it. A perfect hit will induce its full effect, though if a creature is a few blocks away, the effect will be less powerful. After four blocks, the potion will have no effect, though all creatures within those four blocks will be affected.

Lingering potions have a three block area of ​​effect, which decreases linearly to zero blocks over the course of thirty seconds. It should also be noted that both splash and lingering potions can be fired from dispensers, similar to arrows.

This may seem like a lot to take in at once, but with practice, players will come to memorize the recipes for the potions they use most often. With the appropriate farms set up in a player’s brewing area, potions can be pumped out in massive quantities, and as long as they are not turned into splash or linger potions, the bottles can be reused indefinitely. Brewing is one of the most interesting systems in Minecraft and will prove immensely useful to players looking to take on bigger challenges.
