How to Brew a Potion of Weakness in Minecraft?

As you survive in Minecraft, the character will regularly encounter enemies, which in turn impose negative effects. And they can do this not only with the help of potions. Some enemies have innate skills that make it possible to do this. On the other hand, a character can do the same. And not only with the help of enchanted tools or weapons , but also with the help of prepared potions.

One such potion is the so-called “Potion of Weakness”. In other words, thanks to such potions, negative effects can be applied to enemies in a similar way, which give a significant advantage in battle.

However, the process of brewing this kind of potion requires not only special skills, but also ingredients. Therefore, if you suddenly forgot how it is done and from what specific materials, or if you want to study in detail all the known information for the first time, then we recommend that you familiarize yourself with the guide, which is presented below. It contains detailed information on all types of weakness potions.

Potion of Weakness Minecraft Overview

All types of potions of weakness are primarily distinguished by the color of the contents – the liquid inside the bottles has a clear black color. Exploding potions, in turn, have a different bottle, although the liquid is still black. Otherwise, potions of weakness have no external differences.

On the other hand, potions of weakness differ partly in the ingredients used to make them, as well as in their properties. In addition, if many other potions are divided into 6 subspecies, then in this case there are only 4 varieties of weakness potions. And 2 of them are associated with exploding potions.

How to make a Potion of Weakness in Minecraft?

Before you start brewing potions of weakness, you should understand that first of all you need to have the basic ingredients and potion brewing tools with you, which are needed for starting other ingredients. The bottom line is that without these basic items, absolutely nothing can be created. So first make sure you have:

  • Brewing stand (serves as the main unit for potion brewing).
  • Fire powder (serves as fuel for the brewing stand).
  • Empty flasks / flasks with water (serve as a starting base for some potions).
  • Cauldron (in the Bedrock Edition version of the game, it serves as a potion maker).    

Potion of Weakness

It is the base version of the Potion of Weakness. Lasts for 1:30 minutes and simultaneously imposes a negative effect on the target called “Weakness”. And he, in turn, is characterized by damage reduced by 4 units, which in turn is equivalent to 2 hearts. Otherwise, there are no special features. To create, you must have the following ingredients with you:

  • Cooked Spider Eye (Crafted with Brown Mushroom, Spider Eye and Sugar).
  • Flask with water (obtained using an empty flask from any source of water). 

Once all the ingredients are mined and ready, you can proceed to the cooking stage. And if it is suddenly difficult to understand the nuances of the hob, then we recommend that you simply follow the following instructions:

  • Install the hob and then open it.
  • Fire Powder – must be placed in the top left slot.
  • Cooked Spider Eye – Place in the top center slot.
  • Flask with water – you need to get in the central lower slot (opposite the upper one).
  • After you have done everything, it remains to wait for the end of the cooking process.

Potion of Weakness +

It is an enhanced version of the regular Potion of Weakness. Therefore, it applies the same Weakness debuff to the target with 4 damage reduced, but the potion’s buff is reflected in the duration. The duration of the Enhanced Potion of Weakness is 4 minutes. Otherwise, the differences in this kind of potion relate only to the ingredients. Since to create you need to have:

  • Red Dust (better known as “redstone”, mined from blocks of red ore).
  • The usual potion of weakness (it is necessary as a “foundation”, so to speak, that is, the base potion will be tritely improved). 

After the ingredients are collected, then you can safely proceed to the potion brewing process. However, if suddenly some points in the hob remain incomprehensible, then we recommend that you follow the following instructions:

  • Install the hob and then open it.
  • Fire Powder – must be placed in the top left slot.
  • Red Dust – Placed in the top center slot.
  • Common Potion of Weakness – must be obtained in the central lower slot (opposite the upper one).
  • After you have done everything, it remains to wait for the end of the cooking process.

Exploding Potion of Weakness

The key feature of explosive potions, like these types, is that they can be thrown. Otherwise, apart from the distinctive ingredients, there are no differences. Because any exploding potion takes over the effects of the potion that served as the base during brewing. So the Exploding Potion of Weakness+ will last 4 minutes, but it can be thrown. A regular potion can also be thrown, but it will last according to the standard – 1:30 minutes. To create this kind of potion, you will need the following ingredients:

  • Gunpowder (it can be obtained from creepers, ghasts, witches or through trade).
  • Any Potion of Weakness (both normal and enhanced will work). 

And as soon as all the main ingredients are ready, and the basic items are prepared, you can start cooking. For ease of understanding for beginners, we suggest that you follow the following instructions:

  • Install the hob and then open it.
  • Fire Powder – must be placed in the top left slot.
  • Gunpowder – must be placed in the top center slot.
  • Any Potion of Weakness – must be obtained in the central lower slot (opposite the upper one).
  • After you have done everything, it remains to wait for the end of the cooking process.

How to get a Potion of Weakness?

The easiest way to get any desired potion of weakness in Minecraft is to use the console commands. You can try to get potions in a game way, but the chances of getting them are small, and if we are talking about something specific, then it’s generally not clear what the character should do. Therefore, we recommend using the console. To do this, just open the chat line (after clicking on the English layout “T”), and then enter one of the following commands:

  • You can get a regular weakness potion thanks to the command – “/give @p minecraft:potion{Potion:”weakness”}” .
  • You can get an enhanced weakness potion thanks to the command – “/give @p minecraft:potion{Potion:”long_weakness”}” .
  • You can get a regular exploding weakness potion thanks to the command – “/give @p minecraft:splash_potion{Potion:”weakness”}” .
  • You can get an enhanced explosive potion of weakness thanks to the command – “/give @p minecraft:splash_potion{Potion:”long_weakness”}” .

In addition, there are several more important points and specifically three of them. First, all commands should be entered without quotes. Second – after each command, you can put a “Space” and indicate the required number of potions to receive. Thirdly, sometimes commands do not fit on a line, and if this happens, then a command block should be used. In the latter case, the selected command is written inside this block. And then it will be activated automatically as soon as the command block can receive a signal from the redstone.

Secrets and tips

  • Potion of Weakness is considered unique as it is the only Primary Potion that has its own special effect.
  • In addition, Potion of Weakness is also the only potion that does not require Inferno Growth Seeds . The same goes for the Enhanced Weakness Potion.

In general, the potion of weakness is an extremely useful potion for battles. However, if you decide to use them, then it’s better to immediately try to brew exploding versions of this potion. Since the character will be able to fight much more efficiently and safely. Yes, and with enemies, thus, it is much easier to deal with. In addition, it will be extremely useful to use a potion of weakness against other players if you have to play on public servers.
