This quirky potion grants the drinker the “Weakness” status effect, significantly reducing their melee attack damage. It’s a perfect way to even the odds in a fight against a friend or add a bit of self-imposed difficulty to your single-player adventures. This article will guide you through everything you need to know to brew a Potion of Weakness, including the ingredients, directions, and even a breakdown of the potion’s nutritional facts (yes, you read that right!).


The Potion of Weakness is surprisingly simple to craft, requiring only a few basic ingredients:

Blaze Powder: This fiery component is obtained by defeating Blazes, fiery mobs found in Nether Fortresses.

  • Spider Eye: These can be harvested from spiders that spawn at night or found in mineshafts and dungeons.
  • Water Bottle: This can be filled from any water source using an empty glass bottle.
  • Nether Wart: This unique plant grows in Nether Fortresses.

  • Directions:

    1. Craft a Brewing Stand: You’ll need a Brewing Stand to create your potion. To make one, you’ll need three cobblestone blocks, one iron ingot, and a Blaze Rod (dropped by Blazes). Arrange the cobblestone in a T-shape on your crafting table, with the iron ingot in the center and the Blaze Rod above it.
    2. Fill the Brewing Stand with Water: Right-click on the Brewing Stand with your Water Bottle to fill its three empty slots with water.
    3. Add the Nether Wart: Place a Nether Wart in one of the top brewing slots of the Brewing Stand. The water will turn a dark red, signifying the Awkward Potion stage.
    4. Brew the Awkward Potion: Wait for the brewing process to complete, indicated by the smoke billowing from the Brewing Stand. ThisAwkward Potion is the base for many other potions, including the Potion of Weakness.
    5. Add the Spider Eye: Once the Awkward Potion is finished brewing, add a Spider Eye to one of the top brewing slots. The potion will turn a murky gray, and you’ll have your Potion of Weakness!
