The amount of damage inflicted to the affected entity is shown in the table below:
|Level||Ticks per||per second|
- Due to damage immunity, the effective rate is 10 ticks ( × 1 per second) at levels 4 and up.
The player's hearts turn black ()( on hardcore mode), making it more difficult, but still possible, for the player to see their health. Amplifiers outside the range 0–31 (corresponding to levels 1–32) are used modulo 32.
- Death is reported as "<player> withered away".
|Potion||Numeric ID[BE only]|

|How Did We Get Here?||Have every effect applied at the same time||A Furious Cocktail||Have all of these 26 effects applied to the player at the same time. Other status effects, if any, may be applied to the player, but are ignored for this advancement.|
