    Yes, you read it right. A turtle shell helmet is one of your go-to solutions for breathing underwater in Minecraft. This not-so-ordinary helmet gives you an additional 10 seconds of breathing time underwater.

    To craft the turtle shell helmet, you will need to gather Scutes, which you can get when a baby turtle grows into an adult. Five Scutes and you’re all set to create your turtle shell helmet. But that’s not all – enchant the turtle shell with Respiration III, and you’ll be able to stay underwater for up to 70 seconds. Now that’s a game-changer!

    To make the helmet you need five Scutes which you can find after a baby turtle turns into an adult.

    You can breathe underwater in Minecraft with the help of a standard water-breathing potion at a brewing station.

    The standard breathing water requires a water bottle, pufferfish(chances of catching one is 11%), and a nether wart. And by drinking this potion you can remain underwater for at least three minutes.

    There are five slots, the left one uses blaze powder only for fuel, the top one is for the item to distill and the bottom three are for potions or water bottles to distill them.

    You can increase your breathing time to 8 minutes by mixing the standard potion with a Redstone and you need to use the brewing stand for creating these potions.

  • Way 3: Splash/Lingering Potion of Water Breathing

    Splash and lingering water-breathing potions both help the character in Minecraft breathe underwater.

    Instead of absorbing the splash potion, you need to throw it down giving anyone in that radius to buff.

    For the splash potion, you need to have a standard water-breathing potion and gun powder.

    While the lingering potion creates a small cloud where you can walk to receive the buff or breathe underwater. The lingering potion is made up of a splash water-breathing potion and dragon’s breath which will come when you will defeat the ender dragon.

    Lastly, you can extend the breathing time by combining these potions with a Redstone.

Adventure Awaits!
