Have you ever heard of the Slow Falling potion in Minecraft? If yes, are you able to brew it? 

How to Make Slow Falling Potion

If you want to learn how to make a slow-falling potion in Minecraft, you’ve found the right spot.  We’re here to help you explore the methods of brewing this potion so you can gain strategic advantages in different parts of the game. 

What Can You Do With Slow Falling Potion in Minecraft?

You can fall slowly for a few minutes with a Slow Falling Potion in Minecraft. You won’t take fall damage, and jumping on crops won’t break them. This is because the potion reduces gravity’s impact.

In risky places with tough terrain or hostile mobs, Slow Falling Potions help players safely avoid fall damage and move through challenging landscapes.

Don’t have a Windows computer? Good news! You can play Minecraft Java & Bedrock on a MacBook.

What Are the Tiers of Slow Fall Potion?

The tiers of slow fall potion depend on whether you’re using a modded or vanilla version of the game. 

1. Modded Version

These are the tiers of Slow Fall Potion if you use a modded version:

  • Slow Fall.
    The 3-minute Slow Fall potion is made by mixing a Fermented Spider Eye with a Potion of Leaping. The 8-minute Slow Fall potion combines a Fermented Spider Eye with a Potion of Leaping. Lastly, the 9-minute Slow Fall potion combines a Fermented Spider Eye with a Potion of Leaping II.
  • Slow Fall II.
    The 1.5-minute Slow Fall II potion mixes a Fermented Spider Eye with a Potion of Leaping II. Meanwhile, combining a Fermented Spider Eye with a Potion of Leaping II creates the 6-minute and 30-second Slow Fall II.
  • Slow Fall III.
    This tier entails a 3-minute and 15-second slow-falling effect. You can make this potion using a brewing stand by mixing a Fermented Spider Eye with a Potion of Leaping III.

Note that these tiers are based on the Slow Fall Potion mod created by Project Zulu.

2. Vanilla Version

Here are the tiers of Slow Fall Potion in the vanilla version of Minecraft:

  • Standard Slow Falling Potion.
    This potion gives you the slow-falling effect for 1 minute and 30 seconds.
  • Extended Slow Falling Potion.
    This potion provides a longer-lasting slow-falling effect, lasting for 4 minutes.

Players can pick the right tier depending on their activity, such as exploring tall places or activities that require the Slow Falling Potion effect to last longer.

    You need to kill phantoms to get this.
  • Water Bottle.
    Arrange three glass blocks in a crafting grid to create a glass bottle, then right-click on water or a cauldron to fill it up.

Do you have them already? If yes, then you can proceed!

These are the methods to make a Slow Falling Potion:

Method 1. Standard Slow Falling Potion

Here are the steps to make a Slow Falling potion in Minecraft that lasts one and a half minutes:

  • Step 1. Open your Brewing Stand.

  • Step 4. Wait for the potion to brew.

    This will take a couple of seconds. 

Now you have your slow-falling potion! If you need a longer-lasting effect, craft the extended version.

Method 2: Extended Slow Falling Potion

Here are the steps to make a Slow Falling potion in Minecraft that lasts for four minutes:

  • Step 2. Refuel the Brewing Stand with Blaze Powder. (Optional)
  • Step 3. Put the gathered Redstone dust in the top middle cell of the Brewing Stand.

What Is the Rarest Potion in Minecraft?

The rarest potion in Minecraft is the Potion of Luck. This is because you can’t make it using the usual brewing method. Instead, you might find it as a “lucky” potion in certain structures or get it through commands. 

Since you can’t brew it, you need to type in the /give @p potion{Potion:"minecraft:luck"} 1in the console and then press “Enter”. This method will help you obtain one Potion of Luck.

Make a Slow Falling Potion for a Safer Landing

Slow Falling Potions are like magical cushions that keep you safe from fall damage. They’re super handy when you need to come down in a hurry or if you find yourself descending unexpectedly. 

In survival mode, where falls can hurt a lot, these potions act like a safety net, preventing health loss and saving you from potential disasters. So, make a Slow Falling Potion and land gracefully without worrying about taking a tumble!
