What are Minecraft status effects?


Status effects are helpful or harmful conditions that can affect players and mobs and are caused in a variety of different ways. These conditions come from drinking potions, mob attacks, or being in range of certain structures such as beacons or conduits.

Status effects last for differing amounts of time, with some lasting only a few seconds, and others up to 10 minutes. Particles to emit from the affected individual for the duration of the effect.
