The effective rate of damage is 12 ticks (0.8 per second) due to damage immunity.

The effective rate of damage is 10 ticks (1 per second) due to damage immunity.

On tough mode, the player’s hearts change yellow-green.

When the afflicted entity reaches 1 () health, the harm stops, but it can continue if the affected creature heals and reaches more than 1 () health before the effect expires.

Amplifiers beyond the 0–31 range (corresponding to levels 1–32) are modulo 32 processed (as though reduced by 32 until they are within the range, or alternatively as the remainder from division by 32, i.e. 33 or 65 is treated as 1).

Drinking milk or honey might help to counteract the impact. When education settings are selected in the Education and Bedrock versions, drinking antidote also eliminates poison. ‌

There are several potions available to help you in Minecraft. Some potions benefit you, such as rapid healing or strength, while others injure you, such as weakening or harming. The poison potion is one of the potions that might injure you, but it can also be the correct potion to make in the proper occasion.

Here’s a tutorial to teaching you how to make your own poison potion.

Ingredients Required for Poison Potion

  • Brewing stand
  • Bottle of water
  • Nether wart
  • Spider eye

In Minecraft, how do you make a poison potion?


Open the brewing stand to prepare a Potion of Poison. Place your water bottle in one of the bottom three boxes in the brewing stand UI. Then, in the top box, insert a nether wart and wait for the arrow to completely fill up. Now you must insert your spider eye in the top box of the brewing stand’s user interface. The uncomfortable potion will convert into a Potion of Poison after a few seconds (0:45).

The following is a step-by-step instruction to making a Potion of Poison in Minecraft:

Step-1 Making a poison potion in Minecraft is actually a lot easier than it appears. The first thing you need do is get a brewing stand.

The simplest option is to enter the abyss and extinguish a fire. This will drop a blazing rod, which you may combine with three pieces of cobblestone to make a brewing stand.

Step-2 You must return to the nether and locate a nether wart after you have your brewing station. You can make an uncomfortable potion with the nether wart and your water bottle. The most basic form of potion is the awkward one. They have no effect, however they may be used to construct any potion in the game. You can use this tutorial if you need help making an odd potion.

Step-3 You must return your uncomfortable potion to your brewing stand now that you have it. After that, you must travel out into your environment in search of a spider eye. Spider eyes are a type of drop that spiders may produce. To make a poison potion, you just need one spider eye.

Step-4 Now that you have your spider eye, you must place it in the top box of the brewing stand’s user interface. The uncomfortable potion will transform into a poison potion after around 20 seconds.
