This module allows golden swords to inflict potion effects on mobs and players.
When attacking with a golden sword, players with certain potions in their inventory will cause enemies nearby to be afflicted with a corresponding potion effect. With each strike, "a small amount of potion is sprayed into the air around the blade", thus never consuming the potion item in the process. The striker will not be affected by any of the effects.
Carrying the following potion in your inventory will cause the corresponding effect.
|Slowness (Extended)||Causes nearby mobs to be unable to move for 4 seconds|
|Poison II||Withers nearby mobs for 4 seconds|
|Instant Health II||Applies absorption for 8 seconds to nearby players|
|Invisibility (Extended)||Applies invisibility for 8 seconds to nearby players|
Afflicting a skeleton with wither will cause it to transform into a wither skeleton. The wither skeleton will have the same equipment as the skeleton it came from, but will not drop any items when it dies.
Potions effect enemies with 2.5 blocks of a point 2 blocks in front of the striker, though only the directly attacked skeleton will transform into a wither skeleton.
The potion effects are not mutually exclusive, and can all be used at once.
Wither Skeletons are given an empty loot table which prevents all item drops, except for when they are blown up by a charged creeper, in which case they will drop their skull.
