Potion Effects and IDs

Effect (player) (effect) (time) (strength)

The potion effect strength can go as high as 250 but by then it usually cancels itself out, so control MATTERS!
/effect <player> <effect> [seconds] [amplifier]


Effect number list (Add this to the <effect> section)

ID    Effect

1      Speed

2      Slowness

3      Haste

4      Mining Fatigue

5      Strength

6      Instant Health

7      Instant Damage

8      Jump Boost

9      Nausea

10    Regeneration

11    Resistance

12    Fire Resistance

13    Water Breathing

14    Invisibility

15    Blindness

16    Night Vision

17    Hunger

18    Weakness

19    Poison

20    Wither

21    Health Boost

22    Absorption

23    Saturation


So if you wanted to add speed to the player, you would do this:

/effect <Your Name> 1 <number of seconds> <what level of speed you want>


If you have a server, such as RPG or fighting, or arcade,
you can use command blocks (ID 137) to give people potion effects for certain situations.


If you have cheats enabled you can obtain command blocks with the following: /give (player) 137
