How to Make a Wither in Minecraft

Wither is by far the second most powerful mob in Minecraft, right behind the Warden. With over 300 health points, explosion damage and wither damage, the wither is a real challenge in Minecraft!

Other than that, of course, you can’t find wither in the world, but you have to summon it instead. This article will show you how to make a wither in Minecraft!

Three steps to make a wither in Minecraft

#1 Collect 4 Soul Sand/Soul Soil

You can use a total of 4 blocks of either Soul Sand or Soul Earth to make a Wither. Soulsand is a common block found in most Nether biomes such as Netherlands and Soulsand Valleys. Once you’ve found a Nether Fortress or Bastion Remnants, try looking around for a shipment of Soul Sand.

Bartering with the Piglins is also an option to get a large amount of soul sand. For each gold bar you have 8.71% to get back 2-8 soul sand.

Soul Soil is another variant of the Soul Sand Block and can only be found in the Soul Sand Valley biome in the sub-dimension.

#2 Obtain 3 Wither Skeleton Skulls

To get Wither Skeleton Skulls you need to kill the Wither Skeletons. They are a black-textured, melee version of normal skeletons that wield a stone sword and mostly spawn in the Lower Fortress.

Each Wither Skeleton can drop 1 Wither Skeleton Skull on death, with a base 2.5% chance and up to a 5.5% chance with the Looting III enchantment. But be careful when farming, because they are very dangerous!

#3 Make a wither

When you have 4 Soul Sand or Soul Earth, place them in a T shape like below, then place 3 Wither Skeleton Skulls over the Soul Sand to make a Wither.

Remember that the two empty blocks in the bottom row must be empty. So no grass, flowers, buttons, pressure plates, plates,… you get the idea! After placing your last skull on the soul sand, run away as fast as you can because the boss is coming!
