Slowness decreases walking speed.
Slowness decreases walking speed by 15% × level; it will contract the player's field of view accordingly. Negative levels of Slowness will increase walking speed.
Flying mobs are unaffected by the Slowness effect.
- Spiders, cave spiders, silverfish, and endermites get the effect when attacked with a weapon enchanted with Bane of Arthropods.
- At levels 7–127, the player will be unable to move on their own unless they jump while moving or throw an ender pearl.
- Alternative methods of reducing travel speed include: walking on soul sand or slime blocks, or through cobwebs; swimming; riding a boat on land; sneaking; eating; drinking milk or a potion (travel speed is reduced while drinking any potion, regardless of the effects of the potion after drinking is finished); aiming a bow and blocking with a shield.
