Status Effect

From Minecraft Wiki
(Redirected from Status effect)

A status effect is a game mechanic which can affect a player or mob and can be either beneficial (buffs) or deleterious (debuffs). Status effects temporarily modify things such as movement, damage, Health, visibility, loot or other player actions. A status effect is similar to an item enchantment, only it affects the character directly, as opposed to granting a player an effect based on an item they are using. Status effects also have a set time limit, as opposed to enchantments, which last indefinitely until the item using the enchantment is destroyed. Drinking a bucket of Milk will remove all status effects from a player. Drinking a Honey Bottle will remove all Poison status effects and add Saturation effects to the said drinker.
