How to Make The Potions

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

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.
