Potion Damage Values Table!


Easy! >:D

Hey, guys! While trying to make a shop on a server I play on, I realized that it's extremely hard to find a good table of potion damage values out there (i'm sure it's out there, but I couldn't find it.) So, I got NBTEdit, which allows you to read the ".dat" files in saves, and I made one. Here you go! The table is in the pictures.

For those of you who don't know what a damage value is, let me explain. In minecraft, items in your inventory aren't stored as "coal" or "wood". They're stored as a set of numbers. One is a slot number, indicating where in your inventory the item is. One is a quantity, indicating how many you have. One is an Item ID, something many of us are familiar with. This tells the game which item is in that slot in the inventory. What many people don't know is that there is another number, called a damage value. That value tells something else about the item. While a potion of swiftness and a potion of strength both have the same item ID (373) they have different damage values.

Also, in case you were wondering, I believe the reason they are called damage values is that they were first used to keep track of how damaged a tool is.

Sally forth, there are mines to be crafted!


If this helps you, please give me a diamond! I need self esteem too!
