How to make a Potion of Weakness in Minecraft?

Minecraft joins the brawl in Super Smash Bros Ultimate October 13

There are many dangerous and unique places to explore in Minecraft. Some of these are filled with fire and burny things. They can be pretty dangerous if you’re not prepared. The brewing stand in Minecraft is pretty important. You can use it to make some very useful potions. It does take some work to get up and running.  Here are all the materials you need to make a brewing stand, as well as what you can do with it. For those tougher bosses, you can use a Potion of Weakness in Minecraft.

The reason you want to make this particular brew is to apply a damage debuff to enemies. This can be great during PvP or when taking on bosses. Combining a damage buff on your weapons with a series of potions can make some fights much easier.

The one downside to all this is that you will get afflicted with a short Weakness debuff when brewing it. The brewing debuff from a  Potion of Weakness in Minecraft lasts 1 minute and 30 seconds.

The Potion of Weakness in Minecraft is made with just one ingredient, 1 Spider’s Eye. You also need a brewing stand as well, and some blaze powder to make the stand work. Gather up some glass bottles and fill them with water, and you’re halfway there. Spider Eyes are a random drop from any spider mobs, and that includes cave spiders. Bring a looting enchant of some kind to make this easier when farming for them.

Simply open the brewing stand menu and heat it up by using one Blaze Powder. Then, put the Water Bottle in one of the bottom flask slots, and add the Fermented Spider Eye in the top slot. Then, you just need to leave the potion alone and let it brew.

The Brewing Stand is key to making potions. You will need to put the receptacle and the ingredients in the slots on the stand to make your potion. To make one, you need one Blaze Rod, and three of either Cobblestone or Blackstone. Once you have the stand made, you’re ready to brew any potions you have need of.

There are many other potions you can brew in Minecraft as well, all with really awesome effects. Fire resistance potions are pretty good, so go make some of those too.
