    The issue with potions of levitation is that it can be brewed into Splash Potions or Arrows of Levitation, which would be overpowered in PvP (since you can just knock your opponent into the sky and they can't really do anything about it unless they have a bow).

    That's easy to fix. Just don't add them in pvp fights.

    Another option for brewing a potion of levitation would be to capture a shulker bullet in a bottle, similar to collecting dragons breath.

    As for the PVP problem, maybe don’t allow it to be made into a splash potion or arrow?  I want it fo ease of cave exploration and building, so I don’t care if there is no option for making others float.

    I don't know any pvp battles that have water breathing potions or non-splash potions of harming and poison (correct me if I'm wrong). The issue is similar to that, just don't add them in pvp battles.

    I know I already posted here, but I cannot overstate how much I want a potion of levitation to be in the game.  I would use it so much for caving and building when I just need to go up a little bit.

    Yeah,I know right? Could be very useful when building vertically or for unique elevator systems and maybe even transportating and locating mobs.

    Well, I would like to see these two in the game but maybe you should change the recipe for these items, levitation potion might be obtained by brewing slow fall potion and a new item that drops from shulkers as a common drop.

    For the pvp issue there is actually a really easy solution, levitation potions should last shorter when compared to other potions maybe 2-3 sec?

    That's a great idea! I already added a possible ingredient for the levitation (potion of slow fall plus fermented spider eye) instead of adding another item specific for the potions because I don't really want the idea of adding more items that are just for one potion like glistering melons (though I like that item).

    As for the issue with pvp, the admin of the pvp battle or server can just exclude these potions from the available items in pvp like how they exclude other items that are useless or too OP in pvp like (e.g. water breathing potion, hoes and many others) so there's really no issue about the potions with pvp games.

    Just as an idea maybe the levitation could be brewed with a shulker she'll? It would give another cool use for them

    You can't just "not add them" to PvP fights, if they are available in survival mode then they will be available in PvP by extension. The developers do not want them to be used in PvP at all because of how unfair and unbalanced they are, and not all servers add such restrictions to items.

    I've played on servers with levitation arrows -- it's really not that bad. And whether levitation arrows are craftable or not, server owners do still have total control over whether something is in or out of the game.

    It should be VERY SHORT duration imo.

    Like normal potion 15 seconds, splash potion 5 seconds. Still, even 5 seconds is pretty OP since you can't move  properly and are an easy bow target.

    Agreed! And please add these status effects to Bedrock!

    For the PvP problem you could just make them not last long like the turtle master potion only shorter

    Great idea for levitation potion, however it should be brewed with Awkward Potion + Shulker Shell...

  • Avatar

    Would make sense, since shulkers give you levitation.

  • Avatar

    The "Levitation Potion" could be brewed with a "Bat Wing" so that bats finally have a purpose!

    To add to this. You should be able to add an enchantment to boots via anvil called “Heavy”. Heavy will counteract the effect of the levitation potion and shulkers projectiles, but it makes you partially slower while being worn.

     Levitation potion is already in the game

    There isn't a potion of levitation in the game yet but there is a slow falling potion and instead of a potion of glowing it could be a potion of spectre to match the spectral arrows made from glowstone.

    I think glowing, instead of being like the x-ray thing in java, should light up area.

    And add it to bedrock too

    A wonderful idea, although other than being op in pvp, what's the use for them exactly?

    If levitation potions require an ingredient from shulkers, shouldn't that solve the levitation arrow PvP problem? No one is going to get to the End in a UHC or other short-form PvP, or if they do it seems like a proportionate award. And the PvP on anarchy servers is already insane, so not sure how this would hurt.

    Not fermented spider eye plus invisibility, that is recipe for night vision

    We should also have levitation tipped arrows
