Lingering potions are variants of splash potions that can be thrown to leave clouds with status effects which linger on the ground.

Obtaining[edit]

Brewing[edit]

Ingredients Brewing recipe
Dragon's Breath +
Any Splash Potion



Usage[edit]

Creating potion clouds[edit]

Lingering potions are thrown, like splash potions, by using them. On impact they explode, creating a cloud. The cloud is made of the potion particles corresponding to the potion that was thrown.

The cloud starts with a radius of 3 blocks, decreasing to 0 over the course of 30 seconds. During the cloud's existence, any player or mob that walks into it after the first second will get the corresponding status effect; this decreases the radius by a 12 block immediately, causing the cloud to disappear more quickly.

For effects with duration, the duration applied by the cloud is 14 that of the corresponding potion. For effects without duration such as Healing or Harming, the potency of the effect is 12 that of the corresponding potion.

The effect may be applied consecutively if the player or mob remains in the cloud. For example, a player throwing a Lingering Potion of Healing II straight down will consume the cloud within a few seconds while being healed 5 times for a total of 20 (Heart.svg × 10) health. As far as healing is concerned, this makes the lingering potion much more powerful than the regular or splash potion, provided that the player is away from other mobs or players.

Lingering Potions can also be thrown out of dispensers just like splash potions.

Crafting ingredient[edit]

Name Ingredients Crafting recipe Description
Tipped Arrow Arrow +
Matching Lingering Potion
Arrows of Decay are Bedrock Edition, Legacy Console Edition and New Nintendo 3DS Edition exclusive.

Filling cauldrons[edit]

Using a lingering potion on a cauldron will add one level of that potion to the cauldron.‌[Bedrock and Legacy Console editions only] Attempting to add a lingering potion to a cauldron with water, dyed water or a non-matching potion will empty the cauldron and create an explosion sound (but no actual explosion).

Uncraftable Lingering Potion[edit]

The uncraftable potion is a splash potion with no effect that is unobtainable in survival. It is also available in potion and splash potion forms, as well as for tipped arrows.

It can be obtained using the following command: /give @s minecraft:lingering_potion{Potion:"minecraft:empty"}. It is also obtained any time a potion has invalid or missing potion effect tags, and thus serves as a placeholder.

Data values[edit]

Item data[edit]

  •  tag: The item's tag tag.
    •  CustomPotionEffects: The custom potion effects (status effects) this potion or tipped arrow has. A potion getting its effects from this tag will be named "Water Bottle". A tipped arrow will be named "Arrow of Splashing".
      • One of these for each effect.
        •  Id: The numeric ID of the effect.
        •  Amplifier: The amplifier of the effect, with level I having value 0. Negative levels are discussed here. Optional, and defaults to level I.
        •  Duration: The duration of the effect in ticks. Values 0 or lower are treated as 1. Optional, and defaults to 1 tick.
        •  Ambient: 1 or 0 (true/false) - whether or not this is an effect provided by a beacon and therefore should be less intrusive on the screen. Optional, and defaults to false. Due to a bug, it has no effect on splash potions.
        •  ShowParticles: 1 or 0 (true/false) - whether or not this effect produces particles. Optional, and defaults to true. Due to a bug, it has no effect on splash potions.
        •  ShowIcon: 1 or 0 (true/false) - true if effect icon is shown. false if no icon is shown.
    •  Potion: The name of the default potion effect. This name differs from the status effect name. For example, the value for an "Instant Health II" potion is "minecraft:strong_healing". A potion or tipped arrow getting its effects from this tag will be named with the proper effect.
    •  CustomPotionColor: The item uses this custom color, and area-of-effect clouds, arrows, and splash and lingering potions use it for their particle effects. This color does not extend, however, to the particles given off by entities who ultimately receive the effect. The numeric color code are calculated from the Red, Green and Blue components using this formula: Red<<16 + Green<<8 + Blue. For positive values larger than 0x00FFFFFF, the top byte is ignored. All negative values produce white.

Entity Data[edit]

See also: Chunk format and Potion data values

Lingering potions when thrown have entity data which define various properties of the entity. Their entity ID is potion. What makes it a lingering potion as opposed to a splash potion is that their Potion tag stores a minecraft:lingering_potion item.‌[Java Edition only] In Bedrock Edition, this is a distinct entity from the thrown splash potion.

See also: Chunk format

The cloud that is created when lingering potions are thrown – and when creepers with potion effects explode – is an entity, which has entity data that defines the properties of the entity.

  • Entity data
    • Tags common to all entities see Template:Nbt inherit/entity/template
    •  Age: Age of the field. Increases by 1 every tick. When this is bigger than Duration + WaitTime the area effect cloud will dissipate.
    •  Color: The color of the displayed particle. Uses the same format as the color tag from Display Properties.
    •  Duration: The maximum age of the field after WaitTime.
    •  ReapplicationDelay: The number of ticks before reapplying the effect.
    •  WaitTime: The time before deploying the field. The Radius is ignored, meaning that any specified effects will not be applied and specified particles will only show at the center of the field, until Age hits this number.
    •  DurationOnUse: The amount the duration of the field changes upon applying the effect.
    •  OwnerUUIDLeast: Least significant bits of the Universally Unique IDentifier of the cloud's owner, to be joined with OwnerUUIDMost to form a unique ID.
    •  OwnerUUIDMost: Most significant bits of the Universally Unique IDentifier of the cloud's owner, to be joined with OwnerUUIDLeast to form a unique ID.
    •  Radius: The field's radius.
    •  RadiusOnUse: The amount the radius changes upon applying the effect. Normally negative.
    •  RadiusPerTick: The amount the radius changes per tick. Normally negative.
    •  Particle: The particle displayed by the field. This is the exact same as used in the /particle command, including additional parameters.
    •  Potion: The name of the default potion effect. See potion data values for valid IDs.
    •  Effects: A list of the applied effects.
      • An individual effect.
        •  Id: The numeric ID of the effect.
        •  Amplifier: The amplifier of the effect, with level I having value 0. Negative levels are discussed here. Optional, and defaults to level I.
        •  Duration: The duration of the effect in ticks. Values 0 or lower are treated as 1. Optional, and defaults to 1 tick.
        •  Ambient: 1 or 0 (true/false) - whether or not this is an effect provided by a beacon and therefore should be less intrusive on the screen. Optional, and defaults to false. Due to a bug, it has no effect on splash potions.
        •  ShowParticles: 1 or 0 (true/false) - whether or not this effect produces particles. Optional, and defaults to true. Due to a bug, it has no effect on splash potions.
        •  ShowIcon: 1 or 0 (true/false) - true if effect icon is shown. false if no icon is shown.
