Things you didn’t know about Wither

Minecraft is a sandbox game that leaves everything to the player. There are no goals or objectives set apart from the ones you set for yourself. That said, for most players their ultimate goal is to defeat all of the strongest mobs in the game.

For a while, the Ender dragon was the hardest mob in Minecraft and was seen as the game’s final boss. After countless updates, there are many other powerful enemies in Minecraft with one of the most popular being the Wither. Study How to beat Wither It’s not easy, but there’s still a lot to learn about the Mob itself.

The most powerful mob in the game

Wither is said to be strongest enemy in Minecraft. It may not hit as hard as the Ender Dragon, but it does have an extra 100 health and 4 armor, making it a harder enemy to kill.

Depending on the difficulty you’re playing, each wither’s attack deals between two and a half to six hearts. Its lightning attack in Bedrock Edition can deal full seven and a half hearts of damage.

Inspired by Terraria

According to Jeb, the lead creative designer of Minecraft, Wither was inspired by Terraria. Terraria is a sandbox game very similar to Minecraft and is known as the boss summonable mechanic among many other things.

As for Wither’s name, it was inspired by a poison spell in another Jeb-made game called Whispers in Akarra, which is a 2D MMORPG set in a medieval fantasy world.

Egg spawning explosion

What you need to do to summon Wither in Minecraft

To summon the Wither, you must place four blocks of soul sand or spirit earth in a T shape and place three Wither skeleton skulls on top of the three above. If you have trouble collecting the Wither skeleton skulls needed to summon the boss, you can make a skeleton farm wither.

Once crafted, there is a ten second delay before the Wither spawns with a massive explosion. This explosion deals 49.5 hearts of damage to Mobs and nearby players. It has seven times the explosive power, more than a charged creeper or an end crystal. It is best to stay away when the dry chick lays eggs.

Two stage battle

In Minecraft Java Edition, the fight with the Wither is a two-stage battle. During phase one, Wither can be shot with arrows and attack from a distance. As long as you keep the Wither in an enclosed space, this part of the fight won’t be too difficult.

Phase 2 begins when Wither drops below 50% health. That’s when everything changed. The boss gains a shield, making it immune to both arrows and tridents. You’ll have to get up close and personal to take down the crowd.

Wither II Status Effect

Wither II Status Effect in Minecraft

When the player is hit by one of the skulls that Wither throws, it causes a Wither II status effect for 10 seconds on Normal difficulty and 40 seconds on Hard difficulty. Wither II deals damage to your health every two seconds and turns the hearts in your health bar black.

Unlike the Poison staus effect, the Wither II can actually kill you if you run out of health before it runs out. Like all status effects, you can drink milk to remove it, so you’ll want plenty of buckets for the fight.

Bedrock version increased difficulty

Wither is inherently hard enough, but if you really want a challenge, you’ll want to fight Mobs in Minecraft Bedrock Edition. In Bedrock Edition, Wither has 600 health compared to 300 in Java Edition. No Mob in Java Edition or Bedrock Edition has more health than Wither.

The Wither also gains flight in Bedrock Edition, making it a harder target to shoot. Bedrock Edition takes Wither to a whole other level and makes it the hardest boss battle in Minecraft.

Blue Dead Skull

In Minecraft Bedrock Edition, Wither can shoot a blue Wither’s skull at the player. Other than their color, the blue skulls are no different from the black skulls Wither throws at you. The withered skulls exploded with the same power as Ghast’s fireballs but much more powerful.

Players hit by these skulls take eight hearts of damage and then deal some extra damage to the player with the Wither II. Wither’s skull destroys blocks under four explosion protection, so you should fight Wither far from your base.

There is a small Hitbox

The most confusing thing about Wither is its hit box. While Wither clearly looks three and a half blocks tall, three blocks wide, and one block thick, its hitbox is only three and a half blocks tall, one block wide, and one block thick.

The two smaller skulls to the left and right of Wither’s main skull are not part of the boss hitbox. If you hit either of these skulls you won’t do any damage so it’s important to make sure you’re centered in the middle of the Wither.

Drop a Nether star

Defeating the Wither is the only way to get the Nether Star. Although it looks cool, Nether Stars don’t have many uses. They just get used to craft beacons, which can be used as a landmark beam or to give the player area-specific status effects.

A beacon isn’t the most useful creation in Minecraft, but crafting one will let everyone know you’ve defeated one of the hardest bosses in the game. An interesting fact about the Nether Star is that it takes ten minutes to decode in the Java Edition, but never off in the Bedrock Edition.

Withered roses

Wither Rose is one of the rarest flowers in Minecraft. Mobs killed by the Wither will spawn a Wither Rose in its place. If the player passes over the rose, it will deal Wither II and start dealing damage.

Players can harvest these Withered Roses as they have a variety of uses. They can be used to make a black dye or as part of a recipe for a dubious stew. They can even be used as traps by placing them on top of a solid block.
