Respiration is a helmet enchantment for extending breathing time underwater. If applied to other armor pieces using commands, the effect still takes place.


Respiration extends underwater breathing time by +15 seconds per enchantment level. It also grants a chance of not taking drowning damage each second by level / (level + 1). The maximum level that can be obtained without commands is level 3.
