The easiest way to defeat the Wither in Minecraft. This post will explain how to defeat the wither, and why you have to be careful with the wither and the drops of the wither.
The Wither in Minecraft
The wither is one of the most dangerous mobs in the game. It has a health of 300 in java and 300-600 depending on the difficulty in the bedrock edition.
The wither will attack players or mobs nearby and will shoot explosive skulls it is immune to fire, lava, drowning, and freezing damage.
The wither is an undead mob so it is susceptible to the smite enchantment which is a sword or axe enchantment that can do 12.5 extra damage to undead mobs at level 5.
Smite is incompatible with the sharpness and bane of arthropods. From the withers attack, the player can get the wither effect that will make the health bar or hearts black and hard to see and lowers the players health.
You can cure the wither effect by drinking a bucket of milk. The wither is a hard mob to kill as it can fly and break blocks. In an open area, the wither is especially unpredictable.
The best way to kill the wither is by trapping it in blocks they cant break like bedrock, end portal, end portal frame, and the end gateway blocks. Because you can spawn the wither you can easily trap them to make them easier to kill.
How to spawn the wither in Minecraft
To spawn the wither you will need 4 soul sand or sole soil and 3 wither skeleton skulls. Soul sand can be found in the soul sand valley in the nether as the biome is composed of soul sand and sole soil on the surface.
Soul sand can also be found in the nether waste close to the lava ocean in four deep layers. The wither skeleton spawns in the nether fortress.
killing a wither skeleton has a 2.5% chance of dropping a wither skeleton skull. If you have a sword with looting 3 this can be increased to 5.5% in java and 8.5% in bedrock.
This means you may have to find and kill a lot of wither skeletons to get enough for a wither skeleton skull as it could take 20 wither skeletons to get one wither skeleton skull.
To spawn the wither you want to place the soul sander soul soil in a T pattern with the skulls on top. The T pattern can be either upright or on the side. The skulls can be on the top or on the side.
- The wither wont spawn until the last skull is placed.
- The wither will always spawn at the foot of the pattern.
- The wither will grow larger after spawning and after 10 seconds there will be a large explosion that will destroy nearby blocks and deal 99 damage to nearby mobs and players.
- So you want to stand clear of the wither before this explosion occurs.
What does the wither drop?
The only drop of the wither is the nether star and this is guaranteed to drop. The nether star can be crafted with 4 glasses and 3 obsidian to create a beacon.
The beacon will give status effects like speed, jump boost, haste, regeneration, resistance, or strength. The levels of the status effect and range of the beacon depend on how many levels the pyramid underneath the beacon is the pyramid has to be composed of mineral blocks like diamond, gold, iron, emerald, or netherrite.
How to defeat the wither in minecraft
The easiest way to kill the weather as I said earlier in this post, the easiest way to kill the wither is by trapping them. This method will trap the wither in bedrock.
This will involve using an exit portal in the end. The exit portal is the portal in the middle of the main end island that will turn into a portal once you kill the ender dragon.
The bottom part of it is composed of bedrock. First, you will want to dig under the exit portal. You will want a space under the exit portal to be three blocks tall.
There is a 3×3 area in the middle and the block in the middle is the one you want. Place the obsidian block directly. The ground with 2 blocks spaced between it and the bedrock.
Then make a T pattern laying down of obsidian blocks. Place the soul sand or sole soil on top of the obsidian blocks. Now on the side of the T pattern place, the wither skeleton skulls and move away and wait until the wither has exploded.
The wither will be trapped in the bedrock and you wont take any damage if youve done this correctly. Then all you have to do is attack the wither if you want to make it quicker you can use a smite enchanted weapon an axe will do more damage than a sword but you can use any weapon. Then once youve killed the wither you just have to pick up the nether star.
Another option if you havent gone to the end is to use the nether ceiling. The nether ceiling is composed of bedrock although it is uneven. You will need to find a 3×3 space to spawn the wither make sure that this 3×3 area is a flat surface and use the exact same method as shown with the exit portal.
The exit portal is easier to use as it is already set up for the wither. The nether ceiling may take a lot longer to find a good spot to use for killing the wither.
