Potion of Strength Overview

All Potion of Strengths

All Potion of Strengths, with its status effect icon.

Potion of Strength is a Potion that has a positive effect. The effect is Strength. It increases attack damage for a limited time.

The Strength increases attack by 3 (two and a half Heart). It applies to the basic and + version of the Potion of Strength

Strength II increases attack by 6 (three Hearts). It only applies to the level II variant of the Potion of Strength.

How to Make Potion of Strength

Before making Potion of Strength, make sure you make Awkward Potion first by putting Nether Wart and Water Bottle into the Brewing Stand.

Notes: 

  • When Brewing any Potions, make sure you put three Potions (or Water Bottles, if you try to make Awkward Potions) for the Output. 
  • 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).
  • In-game, the extended and upgraded Potion doesn’t come with + and II at the end of its name.
