Slowness (the basic one) decreases speed by 15% and also decreases FOV. This effect applies to the basic and + version of the Potion of Slowness.

Slowness IV decreases speed by 60% and also decreases FOV. This effect only applies to the level II variant of the Potion of Slowness.

How to Make The Potions

Unlike many other Potions, the Potion of Slowness is made from another Potion. Before you start making Potion of Slowness, you need to make Potion of Swiftness or Potion of Leaping, then negate their effect using Fermented Spider Eye.

Notes: 

  1. When Brewing any Potions, make sure you put three Potions (or Water Bottles, if you try to make Awkward Potions) for the Output. 
  2. There are three types of Potions you can make. The first one is the basic, the second one (with + at the end of its name) comes extended duration, and level II (with increased effect power and lower time). 
  3. In-game, the extended and upgraded Potion doesn’t come with + and II at the end of its name.
