What Is Dragons Breath Used For?

By placing the Dragon Breath in the top slot of the Brewing Stand with any of the 22 splash potions in the bottom slots, you can brew the lingering version of the respective potion.

For example, brewing the splash potion of strength with the Dragon’s Breath will create a lingering potion of strength.

It’s important that you should understand how the lingering potion works in Minecraft.

Just like any splash potion, you can throw the lingering potion by right-clicking your mouse or putting it in a dispenser and activating it with a Redstone signal.

Doing so will create a 3×3 area effect cloud around the block with a 30 seconds duration.

Another usage of Dragon’s Breath is to craft tipped arrows. With each lingering potion, you can make 8 tipped arrows with the same effect as the potion.

Let’s say you want to poison your enemy from far away. You can craft a potion of poison, make it linger with Dragon’s Breath, and poison the arrows with it.
