How to get Items to make Potion of Swiftness in Minecraft?

If you are new to Minecraft or haven’t explored the game extensively to acquire the items mentioned above, you’re in the right place. Below, there’s a detailed explanation of how I obtained each item

Nether wart

Minecraft Nether Wart

To obtain Nether Wart in Minecraft, one must venture into the Nether dimension by passing through a Nether Portal made from Obsidian. Inside the Nether, explorers seek out Nether Fortresses, massive structures constructed from Nether Bricks. These fortresses hide rooms or open spaces where Nether Wart is grown.

Nether Wart appears as rows of small, red plants. To harvest it, players can break the blocks using any tool or even their bare hands, collecting the Nether Wart items that drop.

Once a player has gathered some Nether Wart, they can return to the Overworld and plant it in Soul Sand, as this material is necessary for its growth. This allows them to establish their own Nether Wart farm, ensuring a sustainable source for all their potion-brewing needs.
