Visit the Minecraft Wiki for basic information about Wither

Wither is a boss mob added by vanilla Minecraft.


Electric Staff[]

An easy way to kill the wither is to use an electric staff, with Unbreaking III and a highly enchanted sword like a Sharpness V Diamond Giant Sword and a Bow and some Arrows. Using the electric staff to repeatedly fly and attack. If the staff breaks, fall-back to the bow.

Legia Bow[]

Using a Legia Bow with Power V and a Sharpness V Diamond Giant Sword is generally a good combination.


Using the ceiling Bedrock found in the Nether, it is possible to create a scenario where the Wither cannot fly far away from but still be within melee range the entire time. Using this and a quartz modified Manyullyn based Cleaver from Tinkers' Construct can take the Wither down in 8-12 hits.
