Players will require a variety of resources and crafting stations before attempting to construct some of these potions. The first item they’ll need is a Crafting Table, which most players will have little trouble obtaining. Crafting Tables can be made with 4 Wood Planks at any moment, and they can be used for almost anything in Minecraft.

Potion of Water Breathing Recipe

2x Blaze Rod 1x Nether Wart
3x Cobblestones 1x Water Bottle
1x Puffer Fish

Make a Brewing Station with one of the Blaze Rods and three of the Cobblestones from the list above. If players don’t want to create their own, they can steal brewing stations from Minecraft communities or villagers. Brewing Stations will be found in igloos with basements, therefore players spawning in the frozen plains biome should look for one.

By locating a Nether castle, you can obtain blaze rods from the Nether. Around 100-200 blocks from the Nether spawn site, there is usually one. To obtain Blaze rods, players must locate a Blaze spawner and kill Blazes. While exploring a Nether castle, keep a watch out for red mushroom-like plants growing on soul sand, as this is where Nether Wart can be located.

How to Craft Potion of Water Breathing

Players will need to mix the potion together after they have their list of components and Brewing Station ready to go. To begin, manufacture Blaze Powder with the remaining Blaze Rod.

Step 1 In Minecraft, go to the Brewing Station Menu.
Step 2 Fill the left-hand box with Blaze Powder. This will turn on the Brewing Station and start the process.
Step 3 Fill one of the three boxes at the bottom of the Brewing Station Menu with a water bottle (players can brew multiple potions if they fill each of these three slots with a water bottle).
Step 4 Place the Nether Wart in the top box and wait for it to finish brewing. Awkward Potion is now available to players.
Step 5 Place the Puffer Fish in the top box and wait for it to finish brewing. The Awkward Potion is now a Water Breathing Potion.
Step 6 Add a Redstone at this point to receive a longer-lasting Potion of Water Breathing.

What Is It For?

  • Players will be able to swim without fear of drowning or having to come to the surface to breathe. The Potion’s impact is only temporary, but it will allow players to explore what is beneath the sea, such as underwater temples, underwater mining, and even building an underwater Minecraft city if they become bored.
  • Adding Redstone dust will extend the duration, as previously stated. The effect’s timer is 3 minutes without Redstone, and it’s extended to 8 minutes when Redstone dust is introduced. Given the low cost and ease of obtaining Redstone dust, players should always extend the potion duration when they can.
