Okay, so you don’t necessarily have to fight the dragon, but if you’re already there, why not? Also, if you’re the first to enter The End, you probably have no choice. Regardless if you engage in battle or not, the ender dragon’s breath is what you need to capture.
To do that, you’ll need as many empty bottles as you want before you head into the end. As her dragon fireballs rain down on you and linger on the ground, right click with an empty bottle, and you’ll have acquired dragon’s breath.
Once you’re ready, move on to the next step!
Since lingering potions are a variant of splash potions, it’s no surprise that you’ll need it. You’ll need a piece of gunpowder per brewing session. You can read our [step-by-step guide to brewing a splash potion]!
You finally have all the pieces to brewing a lingering potion! Place the dragon’s breath in the top ingredient slot and the splash potion(s) in the bottom slots. The output potions will now be lingering!
