Minecraft power potion How to Brew?

Not all potions in Minecraft restore health or help you better interact with the outside world for the sake of character survival. There are also such varieties of essences that increase the base showed. For example, one of these potions is the strength potion in Minecraft, thanks to which you can significantly increase the character’s basic melee attack.

However, creating such a potion can cause certain difficulties. After all, this will require not only knowing what ingredients are needed but also how to properly use the hob. Therefore, if you have any difficulties in the process of creating power potions, want to “refresh” your memory or get acquainted with all types of power potions, then we recommend that you study the guide below. It provides detailed information of all the details of the power potion.

Minecraft Power Potion Overview

First of all, all types of power potions differ in appearance, since the inside contains a dark red liquid. Although the jar itself is no different from any other potions. However, with a detailed study of the potion of strength, other differences arise: a unique “Strength” effect, three options to choose from (normal, enhanced and second level), as well as a significant increase in the character’s melee power. Well, of course, the cooking method itself is different, but only thanks to the ingredients. The mechanics of potion brewing itself does not change in any way.

How to make a power potion in Minecraft?

To begin with, you should know that any potion brewing requires basic blocks and ingredients. In other words, without these basic things, not a single potion can be created, not to mention improved options. What exactly is included in this basic set? The list of all these items is as follows:

  • Rack for brewing (represents the main block needed for potion brewing).
  • Cauldron (also required for the potion brewing process, but only in the Bedrock Edition version of the game).
  • Empty and water-filled flasks (all of them will be required as a base for potions).
  • Fire powder (will serve as a kind of fuel for potions).   

Potion of Strength

It is the base potion of strength. The key feature is the duration. And specifically, the action of the basic strength potion will last for 3 minutes. At the same time, as expected, the target or character receives the “Strength” effect, due to which the damage dealt is increased. As for damage, it increases by 3 units, which is equivalent to 1.5 hearts. To create this kind of potion, you must have with you:

  • Fire powder (that is, in addition to what is required for fuel).
  • Unremarkable potion (created with red dust and a flask of water).

Next, after the ingredients are collected, it’s time to start using the cooking rack. However, if you suddenly do not know how to use this block, we recommend that you simply follow the following points for understanding:

  • First of all, open the hob.
  • In the upper left slot – put the fire powder.
  • In the central upper slot – put again fiery powder.
  • In the central lower slot – put an unremarkable potion.
  • After that, it remains only to wait for the moment when the potion is ready.

Potion of Strength +

Often, many people also call this version of the potion “enhanced”, since it does not have cardinal differences from the usual potion of strength. The only thing that changes after improvement is the duration of action. And it is 8 minutes. Otherwise, the power of the effect, as well as its status, do not change. To create, you must have:

  • Red dust (mined underground from blocks with red ore).
  • A regular strength potion (i.e. create a base version and use it to upgrade).

Once all the ingredients are ready for further potion, you can start creating an enhanced potion of strength. The instructions for using the brewing stand do not change in any way, but if you suddenly want to fix the basics of potion brewing, then follow the instructions below:

  • First of all, open the hob.
  • In the upper left slot – put the fire powder.
  • In the top center slot, place redstone dust.
  • In the lower center slot – put a regular potion of strength.
  • After that, it remains only to wait for the moment when the potion is ready.

Potion of Strength II

Unlike the Enhanced Strength Potion, this variant is drastically different. It can be said that the potion of strength of the second level is a powerful potion. Of course, it has a shorter duration (lasts 1:30 minutes), but in return, the damage dealt is increased by 6 units and, in addition, an additional 3 units are added for each level of the potion. To create, you must have:

  • Glowstone dust (obtainable from Nether Glowstone blocks ) .
  • A regular potion of strength (here it also serves as the basis for improvement).

Well, after the character has all the ingredients, you can start potion brewing. The process does not change, but for ease of understanding, we recommend that you follow the following instructions for beginners:

  • First of all, open the hob.
  • In the upper left slot – put the fire powder.
  • Place Glowstone Dust in the top center slot.
  • In the lower center slot – put a regular potion of strength.
  • After that, it remains only to wait for the moment when the potion is ready.

Exploding Potion of Strength

First of all, it is worth noting that these potions do not differ from their similar options in power or duration of action. Their difference lies in another – they are throwing. In other words, exploding strength potions the character is able to throw. And as a basis for creating this kind of potion, all the above potions serve. For example, if you use an Enhanced Strength Potion, then an exploding Enhanced Strength Potion will be created. The creation recipe itself does not have any cardinal differences. Only the base potion used is different. In any case, to create, you must have with you:

  • Gunpowder (this is one of the bases that is mined from creepers, ghasts and witches).
  • Potion of Strength (absolutely any of your choice will do).

Once the ingredients are ready, you can proceed to further potion brewing. And for ease of understanding, again, we recommend that beginners adhere to the following auxiliary instructions:

  • First of all, open the hob.
  • In the upper left slot – put the fire powder.
  • In the central upper slot – put gunpowder.
  • In the lower center slot – put a potion of strength (regular, + or II).
  • After that, it remains only to wait for the moment when the potion is ready.

How to get strength potion?

The easiest way to get a power potion in Minecraft is to use the console commands. It is perfect for those who do not want to spend their time on the potion mechanics and killing mobs, which in theory can drop a strength potion with a certain chance. And all that is required for this is to open the console (the English key “T” is responsible for this), and then enter one of the following commands to choose from:

  • To get the usual version of the strength potion, you need to write – “/give @p minecraft:potion{Potion:”strength”}” .
  • To get an enhanced version of the potion of strength, you need to write – “/give @p minecraft:potion{Potion:”long_strength”}” .
  • To get a second level strength potion, you need to write – “/give @p minecraft:potion{Potion:”strong_strength”}” .
  • To get a regular exploding strength potion, you need to write – “/give @p minecraft:splash_potion{Potion:”strength”}” .
  • To get an enhanced exploding potion of strength, you need to write – “/give @p minecraft:splash_potion{Potion:”long_strength”}” .
  • To get an exploding potion of strength of the second level, you need to write – “/give @p minecraft:splash_potion{Potion:”strong_strength”}” .

However, two more important points should also be taken into account. First, all commands should be entered without quotes. Secondly, sometimes especially long commands do not fit in the chat line. In the latter case, the only option is to use the command block. And the principle of its operation is quite simple: you write a command inside it, after which it is activated by itself, as soon as the signal from the redstone reaches the block.

Otherwise, potions of strength do not have any of the most important nuances. If desired, exploding potions can be used on other allied players if you play together. In any case, strength potions are an effective character boost, especially in battles when you need to defeat many enemies or a strong boss.
