I saw on youtube that the wither is hard to beat, so I thought I would attempt to kill one to prove I'm better than it. After searching "Wither", it only came up with a wither skeleton. How do I spawn the wither, and how to I make the spawner?

    Good luck. He is mental hard. Ensure you have some badass enchantments and ample space to move about before you take him on

    After searching wither it only says a wither skeletion? I should've took you right to the wither mob or the witherstorm.

To spawn a Wither you need to build it like with Golems (Snow and Iron), you need 4 Soul Sand in a T Shape and 3 Wither Skeleton Heads on top of the top 3 Soul Sand Blocks More Info here, when it's made it'll cause an explosion and the fight is on

  • Doesn't seem to explode if you spawn it from the egg in creative mode...

As Memor-X said, you can spawn a Wither with 4 Soul Sand and 3 Wither Skeleton Heads.

However, if you desire to spawn the wither by "unlegit" means you can use the command:

/Summon WitherBoss

This instantly spawns a Wither Boss in front of you.

Obviously you have to have commands enabled to use this command.


Make a T out of 4 pieces of soulsand and place three wither skulls across the top of the T.

This will create a wither. It will charge for a moment then explode, so RUN! Then it will start exploding the land around it so dont do it in your house. Good luck!


You can spawn a Wither by placing 4 soul sand and 3 wither skeleton skulls like this:

SS: Soul sand | WSS: Wither skeleton skull

|SS |SS |SS |
|   |SS |   |
