How to drink water in RLCraft

If you have been playing Minecraft for quite sometime now, you would’ve already probably heard of RLCraft. RLCraft is a modpack in Minecraft that has more or less 120 mods that have been created by Shivaxi to take your Minecraft experience to the next level. 


This modpack has better graphics and it looks more realistic compared to the standard version of Minecraft, but this RLCraft is not for beginners and weak players. In fact, it has been considered to be one of the hardest modpacks that you can find. I remember getting so frustrated the first time I tried to play in this game, because after only a minute or so, I immediately get killed by a dragon. 


The worst part of that was I wasn’t given the chance to create my own house to protect myself and I got offed by a dragon already which I didn’t even notice was there. There was also a time when my thirst bar dropped, and the next thing I know, I am already given the option to respawn. Nice, isn’t it?


If you have having the same troubles in this game because you do not know how to drink water, do not fret because this article is made for you!


How to drink water in RLCraft

These are the several ways on how to drink water in RLCraft:


1. Drink water sources around you

This is considered to be the easiest way to drink water since you will only need to crouch near a water source and right click on a water block until your thirst meter is filled. 

This water source can be also placed in water bottles so that you can bring them wherever you go. The downside to this is option is the water that you are drinking might be ‘impure’.



2. Collect rainwater to drink

If it starts to rain, you can collect rainwater and drink it without worrying too much about it not being safe to drink since it is consider as ‘Pure Water’. You can use a cauldron to save rainwater and use water bottles to keep them. You can even make your own rain collector system to effectively collect rainwater that is safe to drink. 

3. Make a drinkable water

Drinkable water is often not accessible in a world like RLCraft where you are in Survival Mode 100% of the time. Hence, you have to make it yourself. To do this, you have to boil the water that you have acquired and use water bottles to keep them for future use. 

The next paragraph will explain in detail how you can make a drinkable water in RLCraft.


How do you make a drinkable water in RLcraft?

Before you can drink water, you should first know how to make a drinkable water. The reason why you have to know this is because not all water source in RLCraft is safe to drink. Drinking water from an unknown source to quench your thirst, just like in real life, can potentially kill you. So, to lessen your chances of being killed, you have to create your own water. 


To make a drinkable water, you need to have:


  • Water source
  • Bucket
  • Cauldron
  • Furnace
  • Drinking Bottle


With your bucket, get water from the river or lake, then transfer it to a cauldron. Place a furnace near the cauldron and start transferring the water from the cauldron to the water bottles that you have. Lastly, put the water bottles inside the furnace to boil them. This will give you a drinkable water that you can use to quence your thirst. 

How do you restore Thirst in RLCraft

Restoring thirst in RLCraft is easy because you only have to go near a water source and right click on it. If your thirst status is getting filled, that is a good sign, but if your thirst is status decreases, you might be drinking from an impure water. 

Items that you will need to restore Thirst in RLCraft

These are the water sources that you will need to restore your thirst in RLCraft:


Water Block
Water Bottle
Water Canteen
Purified Water Source


You can also increase your thirst in RLCraft by taking in these other fluids: 


Apple Juice
Melon Juice
Carrot Juice
Milk Bucket


How thirst levels affect the game

Your level of thirst in RLCraft will dictate how long you are going to survive, that is why you should never underestimate it. It is of the same importance as hunger that if your thirst level decreases up to two droplets or less, you will observe that your view gets blurry and your attacks get weak. This will ultimately result in you dying in the game due to dehydration. 

Temperature can also decrease your thirst level. If in case you landed in a desert or a warm biome, you can expect your thirst level to decrease more quickly. 

Drinking impure water can also decrease your thirst and change your thirst bar into green. If you continue doing this, you will eventually die. 


In conclusion

RLCraft is one of the most complicated mods in RLCraft, but knowing how to drink in the game will help you survive.
