/summon Item ~ ~3 ~ {Item:{id:tipped_arrow,Potion:"long_weakness",Count:1}}

I need help with this. How do I summon a dropped item that has tipped arrow affects? This does not seem to work.

  • I believe that the syntax is off - using /summon item creates a new item, which is not what you're after. I think you want to use something along the lines of /summon @e instead maybe, then give it the effect?

  • @Ben the command works. It summons a dropped item just like I want it to Just the "Potion:"long_weakness" does not apply to the arrow like I wish it too.

  • Ohhh, I read that wrong. I was thinking you wanted to summon arrows that had been dropped. Ignore me

  • Have you tried just using Potion:"weakness"?

Item data that is not the root id, Damage, Count, and Slot, must be placed within a single tag compound:

/summon Item ~ ~3 ~ {Item:{id:tipped_arrow,Count:1,tag:{Potion:"long_weakness"}}}
