Mining Fatigue reduces mining and attack speed, opposite to the Haste effect.
The effect decreases speed by 10% × level. Mining speed decreases more than movement speed.[more information needed] The effect lasts for 5 minutes.
Negative levels increase attack speed, but still act as level 4 with respect to mining.
While afflicted, a player can still craft and ride entities as normal, but cannot remove most vehicles due to how slowly the vehicle can be broken.
The affliction is cured by drinking milk, although milk does not prevent a subsequent affliction by an elder guardian.
The only natural cause of Mining Fatigue is from affliction by an elder guardian, and the only natural effect level is III. Once per minute, elder guardians in the vicinity search for any player within 50 blocks to afflict with Mining Fatigue III. A player cannot defend from this attack. Concealment behind blocks, underground, or by a potion of Invisibility offer no defense.
Other levels can be achieved via commands.
|Elder Guardian||III||5:00||Only when the player is not affected.|
- The effect does not affect block breaking in Creative mode, or blocks that are broken instantly.
- Other conditions which reduce mining speed include: being underwater; riding a horse, pig, or minecart.
- Mining Fatigue III is unaffected by the Haste effect (such as from Conduit Power), although lower levels of Mining Fatigue can be overcome by higher levels of Haste.
