Wings add some new methods of flight in Minecraft, which don’t require reaching the End Dimension. After drinking a Potion, Wings will appear on the player’s back, allowing them to fly.
This is one of many of our Mod Wikis, here at Minecraft Guides. If you're interesting in finding out about more of Minecraft's Best Mods, then check out our dedicated section! We allow you to sort by Forge, Fabric, Minecraft Version and Genre!
There are 10 different styles of Wings available. They aren’t equipable items. Instead, players can create new Potions, with the base item being a Potion of Slow Falling. When drinking these new Potions, a set of Wings will appear on the player’s back.
These Wings are cosmetic and don’t appear in your inventory, so the Chestplate slot is still available. Another great feature is that Wings don’t work like an Elytra. It’s possible to fly and take off without the need for Firework Rockets.
As previously mentioned, there are 10 different Wing styles available. This includes Angels, Slime, Parrot, Blue Butterfly, Monarch Butterfly, Fire, Bat, Fairy, Evil, and Dragon Wings.
The models of the Wings are beautifully designed, as they have lots of 3D features, making them much better looking than an Elytra. The texture work is very good too. Use our slideshow below to scroll through each Wing design, and its recipe.
To obtain a set of Wings, a Potion must be brewed. Inside a Brewing Stand, place 3 Potions of Slow Falling as the base Potion ingredient. Each set of Wings then needs a core item, depending on the style you want to craft.
- Angel Wings = Feather
- Slime Wings = Slimeball
- Parrot Wings = Red Dye
- Blue Butterfly Wings = Blue Dye
- Monarch Butterfly Wings = Orange Dye
- Fire Wings = Blaze Powder
- Bat Wings = Bat Blood
- Fairy Wings = Oxeye Daisy
- Evil Wings = Bone
- Dragon Wings = Leather
After drinking a Potion, the Wings will appear on your back, and some have animations. No Firework Rockets are needed, and neither is height. Instead, tap the R key. This will allow you to start gaining height and momentum like you’re setting off Firework Rockets.
Don’t hold down the R key, as this will cause it to look glitched. Just a simple tap of the key will allow you to switch between flying and landing mode.
How to Remove Wings
There are 2 ways of removing Wings. Firstly, if the player dies, then they’ll be removed automatically, as Wings only last as long as the player is alive. After dying, another Potion will need to be brewed and consumed to gain more Wings.
However, players can also drink Bat Blood, a new item added with the mod. To obtain Bat Blood, head underground into the Caves, and search for Bats. If you can, right-click them with a Glass Bottle, to collect Bat Blood. Drinking Bat Blood will remove any sets of Wings you’re wearing, and they won’t be refunded to you.
