Using the Command

To use the /effect command, follow this template:

/effect <player> <effect> [seconds] [amplifier] [hideParticles]

For example, you could use:

/effect @p 1 60 1

This command will give the nearest player speed II for one minute. The level of the effect is one number above the amplifier, so 0 becomes level one, to a max of 255, which becomes 256.

/effect Etho strength 1000000 255 true

This command will give any player named Etho strength at level 256 (maximum) for 1,000,000 seconds (maximum) with no particles.

Clearing effects

Effects can be cleared in one of four ways:

  • Death
  • Drinking milk
  • Using /effect <player> clear
  • Using /effect <player> <effect> 0, to clear a specific effect
