Invisibility potions in Survival Minecraft is used to prevent hostile mobs from targeting you from further away. However, it can make for a fun interaction with others on multiplayer. It can be startling finding a player you did not know was there right behind you, imagine if they were invisible! Invisibility potions are a relatively complicated process for the reward, but it can lead to some great fun in multiplayer maps.
The most difficult part of brewing potions is to find a nether fortress. The fortress will house blaze and the nether wart necessary to make night vision potions. You will need to defeat some blaze enemies in order to get blaze rods, a material used for crafting the brewing stand as well as fueling it.
You will need water bottles to hold the potion’s effect. Glass bottles are made from glass, so dig up some sand and smelt it into the three glass pieces you need.
Nether wart is necessary to create the base for night vision potions: the awkward potion. Nether wart can also be grown in the overworld as long as you have soul sand. Make sure to plant some so you have extra for future potions.
The golden carrot is used to turn awkward potions into night vision potions. You will need one carrot and eight gold nuggets.
Fermented spider eye is used to turn night vision potions into invisibility potions. For this potion you will need to craft two different potion effects before you can make invisibility potions.
How to make Invisibility Potion Step-by-Step?(with Pictures)
To make invisibility potions you need to first make night vision potions. Let’s start by getting the primary ingredient for night vision potions, the golden carrot. To make a golden carrot you will need to harvest some carrots. They can be found in villages, dropped rarely by zombies, or found in shipwreck or pillager tower chests.
Step-1 Locate a village farm, villages can almost guarantee you find carrots. Every village farm has a 1/5 chance to generate carrots in their farm plots. You can distinguish carrots from the other crops by their orange base and green leafy tops.
Step-2 Next you will need to find a gold ingot to create a golden carrot. Gold ore can be found anywhere below “Y” level 31. You can also find it in badland biomes near the surface. The ore is notable by its yellow flecks and you will need at least an iron pickaxe to mine it.
Step-3 Smelt your gold ore into ingots. Place your gold into a furnace and wait for it to smelt into ingots. To learn how to make a furnace refer to this guide. Link
Step-4 Place a gold ingot into the crafting menu to make gold nuggets.
Step-5 Surround a carrot with your gold nuggets to craft a golden carrot. You now have the primary ingredient for brewing night vision potions.
Step-6 Now for the primary ingredient for invisibility potions: a fermented spider eye. You will need a spider eye, sugar, and a brown mushroom. Spiders can spawn anywhere it is dark. Wait for nighttime and hunt down some spiders to get the eventual spider eye drop.
Step-7 Locate some sugarcane alongside any water source block. You will need to craft this into sugar.
Step-8 Pick a brown mushroom from a dark area. You can find brown mushrooms in swamps, dark oak forest biomes, and in underground caves. If you have trouble finding one you can find them commonly in the nether
Step-9 Craft your fermented spider eye. First place your sugarcane in the crafting menu to make sugar.
Then place your sugar, spider eye, and brown mushroom in any of the nine crafting spaces to make your fermented spider eye. You can also do this in the player 2x2 crafting menu.
Now you just need a brewing stand. You can make one with the drops from blaze enemies and three pieces of cobblestone.
Step-10 You will need to go to the nether in order to find blaze. Build a nether portal by placing obsidian four blocks wide and five blocks tall.
Step-11 Next light the nether portal with some flint and steel. To make flint and steel you will need an iron and a flint. Simply place the flint and the iron ingot into your crafting menu in any of the nine crafting spaces and you can start traversing the nether.
Step-12 To light your portal make sure you light one of the inside obsidian blocks, stand in the portal for a few seconds and be ready to face the fiery depths of the nether.
Step-13 Next you will need to locate a nether fortress. These fortresses can be extremely rare, if you are fortunate your portal may generate right on top of one.
Step-14 Once you have located the red/purple hue of the brick you know you have found your fortress! Your next step will be locating the blaze that spawn intermittently throughout the fortress.
A blaze spawner can make your life much easier if you are lucky enough to find one.
Step-15 Simply defeat enough blaze until you have a decent supply of blaze rods. You will need at least one blaze rod to make the brewing stand and any extra can become fuel for the brewing stand itself. So make sure to find extra blaze rods.
Run throughout your fortress until you come across a staircase with some soul sand and some red fungus growing. This is the nether wart you will need to brew your night vision potion.
After you have collected all your materials, head to safety and back to your crafting table. Using your blaze rod, combine it with three pieces of cobblestone in a crafting table to make a brewing stand.
Step-16 Your brewing stand will need some blaze powder in order to work. Just place a blaze rod into your crafting menu to make blaze powder. Each blaze rod will yield two blaze powder.
Step-17 Right click your brewing stand to open its UI. Place your blaze powder in the top left slot to fuel your brewing stand.
Step-18 Next you will need some glass bottles. Smelt some sand in a furnace to make glass and arrange three pieces of glass in a “v” shape in a crafting menu to make glass bottles.
Step-19 With your glass bottles, right click any water source to fill your bottles up and get water bottles. Right click your brewing stand and place the water bottles at the bottom.
Step-20 You are almost done! Place your nether wart in the final slot, wait for the bottles to fill up, and you will have your base for the night vision potion: the awkward potion.
Step-21 Leave the awkward potions at the bottom and grab your golden carrot. Place it in the same slot that the nether wart was in. After the bottles have filled up you will have three potions of night vision.
Step-22 Same as before, leave your night vision potions at the bottom of the brewing stand. Add your fermented spider eye in the ingredient slot and wait for it to finish brewing.
Finally, you will be rewarded with three cloudy potion bottles that will make you invisible for three minutes.
If you want to scare your friends, make sure you remove your armor after drinking the potion of invisibility. It will make your player invisible but not your armor. It will be a dead giveaway to the pranks you can pull on your friends.
Q. What does Invisibility potions do?
They make you invisible of course! The effect does not extend to your armor. Likewise, it does not make whatever you are holding in your hand invisible either. If you would like you can turn the potion of invisibility into splash potions. This can be used to make mobs disappear. They will still technically be there but you can surprise someone with an invisible hostile mob or make their horse vanish from their stable.
All pranks aside, they do prevent mobs from aggroing onto you from further away. They can still aggro to you if you get close enough but if you want to get away from a swarm of hostile mobs a potion of invisibility can make your life easier.
Q. Can Enderman see you with Potion of Invisibility?
Unfortunately, potion of invisibility does not prevent enderman from attacking on you. Keep your line of sight away from the tall screechy mobs.
Congratulations! Disappearing right before another person’s eyes can be a fun interaction. Brewing potions can involve a lot of work, but the payoff can be massive. Invisibility potions have a relatively niche payoff, but in multiplayer servers the effect can lead to some hilarious encounters. It is also interesting seeing some floating armor running around.
