So I'm trying to make a custom trade villager with potions as one of the trades. But I can't seem to figure out what to put in the command block.

What I've got so far is:


Can someone help me with this command?

I'm playing on version 1.9

    Have you made any attempt to solve this yourself? Arqade works better when askers show effort to solve their own problems; we see that you have a problem you've worked on, and answerers respond to that. You also get a more specific answer that's tailored exactly to the part you're stuck, and Arqade gets a very specific question. Everybody wins!

    sell:{id:"minecraft:potion",Count:1}} that's part of the command I want help with. I know that if I put that the villager will trade me a mundane potion, but I want him to trade a strength potion; and I don't know what else to put. May 22, 2016 at 3:05

In 1.9, potions no longer rely on the damage value of the potion item to determine what type of default potion it is. Instead, the Potion string tag holds a string-based default potion ID, which is stored in the tag compound:


If instead you want to sell a potion with custom effects, you would use the old CustomPotionEffects list (using an effect ID):
