This module allows golden swords to inflict potion effects on mobs and players.

Details[edit | edit source]

When using a golden sword and if the player has any of the 4 compatible potions in their inventory, mobs (or in some cases the player) will be afflicted with a status effect without using up the potion. The striker will not be affected by any of the effects.

Technical Summary[edit | edit source]

The area of effect is 2.5 blocks around the striker. The potion effects can be stacked, so a single sword swing can cause all 4 potion effects. The striker will not be affected by any potion effects.

Striking a skeleton with the Poison II potion in the player's inventory will turn it into a wither skeleton. The wither skeleton will still hold a bow, but the loot table will be empty.

Effects[edit | edit source]

Carrying the following potion in your inventory will cause the corresponding effect.

Potion Type 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

Advancements[edit | edit source]

Advancement Description Requirement
Instant Regret Wither-ize a skeleton with potion swords. Strike a skeleton with the wither effect (Poison II potion)
