With the 1.18 update's new world height limit, mountains can be even more of a pain to traverse. If only there was a way to jump higher, so you could climb a mountain faster…

Thankfully, there is a way (in Minecraft at least)! With a potion of leaping, players can increase their jump boost by ½ a block to 1 ¼ a block!

Here’s an easy guide to brewing a potion of leaping in Minecraft!

craft glass bottle

In order to begin brewing, use 3 glass blocks in a crafting table to make 3 glass bottles!

create water bottle

Take your freshly made glass bottles, go up to a water source and right click. You’ve now created a water bottle.

blaze minecraft

This is the most tedious part of brewing. In order to begin the actual brewing process, you’ll need to collect blaze powder to fuel a brewing stand. You can craft a blaze powder from blaze rods, which are dropped by (you guessed it) blazes!

blaze powder recipe

Simply put the blaze rod anywhere on the crafting table to create 2 blaze powders.

nether wart

Basic potions require a potion modifier. In this case, we need to gather nether wart. So while you’re looking for blazes, be sure to also grab some soul sand and nether wart from the nether fortress!

awkward potion

The base potion for every standard potion is an awkward potion. Place 3 water bottles, blaze powder, and nether wart into the brewing stand’s GUI as shown above.

rabbits foot

This potion requires an easy to gather effect ingredient: rabbit’s foot! You can obtain a rabbit’s foot from a rabbit or as a gift from a tamed cat. Leaving everything how it was from the last step, simply place the rabbit’s foot in the top empty space.

After brewing is complete, you’ve created a standard potion of leaping. This potion increases jump height by 1⁄2 block for 3 minutes.

Enhancing a potion improves the effect that it has on the player or entity. Add a glowstone dust into the base ingredient slot (the top one) to begin brewing.

The output potion increases jump height by 1 1⁄4 blocks with an effect duration reduced to 1.5 minutes.


You can also extend a potion of leaping by placing a redstone dust in the base ingredient slot. Extending a potion means that the effect will last longer.

The potion will now last for 8 minutes and increase jump height by 1⁄2 block.
