The Starter Potion Recipe

Before we start choosing the recipe you need to know how a potion is first made. You need to have an Awkward Potion, Splash Potion, Lingering Potion, Mundane potion or Thick potion. These will then create different recipes. Think of them as the base of the potion.

You need one of these potions to then carry on down the line to create the end potion, the finished one with the effects you require.

Awkward Potion

Add your blaze powder to your brewing stand to fuel it and add the two ingredients below.

Potion of Harming

Not so good to use as a potion to take yourself, however, use the splash potion and you have yourself a grenade of harming at your fingertips. Getting chances by another player or mob? Throw one of these and counterattack whilst the enemy is trying to regen their health.
