So apparently there is or may be a "blindness" potion. What is this anybody have any ideas?

Blindness doesn't seem like something you would want so is it possible that a blindness potion is a potion that failed the alchemical synthesis and it causes temporary blindness?

Or is it a weapon you use on enemies that makes them blind? can't see what use this would be.

Is it possible that the blindness potion only makes you blind in daylight but gives you enhanced vision in darkness ?

Anybody have any ideas ?

That's a cool idea, it would restrict you from engaging certain monsters or going to certain places until you have some sorta skill at generating cures.

Maybe use it on villagers to sneak by and steal all of their stuff in their community chest?

I don't think Jeb meant an actual potion. A potion effect is just any status effect. Eating rotten flesh gives you "potion.hunger", drawing your bow gives you "potion.moveSlowdown". Blindness would probably be inflicted by a mob or new hazard, not your own tools.

This again for visibility.
potion in minecraft code is just another term for status effect.

We did see a screenshot with a bottle in the inventory, and Jeb mentioned a "brewing system" so... yeah, we're pretty sure at this point.

It might be a new self defence mechanism for squids, they spray ink in your face!

Would make sense to if you get blinded by a monster, You will have to use your Ears! With a improved sound effect so you can tell if they are close or something :)

I want blindness potion to have the in-game name of : super mega strenght potion as a joke , but when you consume it , it will make a similar effect like the pumpkin when you wear it.

It would be so awesome in servers.

Noob : Hey guys , i found a  super mega strenght potion , i am ready to pvp like a boss
*consumes it*
Noob : Hey guys , i cant see , guys , guys?
*falls in lava*
*loses the 50 diamonds he has been mining*

Oh yeah... but probably , when you use the fake version with something else in a crafting table , i am thinking about glowstone dust , it will make a real blindness potion , that will make mobs blind as you said in your post.

It would be fun , specially to see noobs thinking they are now awesome , and then falling into lava or being killed by a creeper without even noticing it.

It could make you blind in sunlight by making everything too bright, but then be somewhat useful by only drinking them in totally dark caves as a sort of nightvision heh.
Evidence suggests that many people quote posts without reading them in their entirety.

Alchemy is NOT CONFIRMED to be a 1.9 addition, and by current looks, will not be in 1.9 as Notch 'dislikes' Jeb's work so far on it.

Please don't speculate/ask questions on something that only time travelers will know.
