How are these items obtained in the game?

  • Fishing – Water bottles may be obtained as junk while fishing.
  • By filling bottles – Potions can be getting when a glass bottle is used on water source block or that of a cauldron containing water transform it into a water bottle. Similarly by using a glass bottle on a cauldron that has a potion in it turns it into a bottle of that particular potion.‌
  • Witches – They can also release potions such as of healing, fire resistance, swiftness, and also water breathing. But this is applicable when witches die while drinking that particular potion.
  • Wandering traders – These wandering traders have the opportunity to drop only potions of invisibility. Again with the same condition, only when they die while drinking this potion.
  • Brewing – This is another way of obtaining a potion. The potion of luck and decay cannot be brewed. Nonetheless almost all other options you can get by brewing.
  • Natural generation – In certain spaces of the game, you will find pre-placed potions. Some random potions are also available in such a way.

How do the potions work as modifiers?

The modification of the potion can be done in five ways. The first way is by adding glowstone dust to enrich the effect level. The second way is by adding the Redstone for the extension of the duration of the effect. The third way is by adding the gunpowder to turn a potion into a splash potion. The fourth one is done by adding a dragon’s breath to transform a splash potion into a lingering potion. The fifth one is by adding a fermented spider eye to disrupt the effect. The outcome of a corruption is usually the opposite of the effect that was original (for example Swiftness turns to Slowness).

There are some potions that cannot be enriched. Like the Potion of Invisibility is not able to enhance because players cannot be more invisible than what normally they are.
