The Wither is a mob in Minecraft that spawns in the Nether. The Wither is a hostile mob within Minecraft and players should make sure they are prepared before facing off against one.

Withers a very lethal mob that players can face in Minecraft. They are like the Minecraft boss for the Nether (the ender dragon being the boss for the overworld)

Withers will shoot flaming skull heads at players, and the only way to counter the Wither is by drinking milk to reduce some of the damage from the skull explosions.

Withers can be spawned by players using four blocks of soul sand and three Wither skulls. The question probably is, why would a player want to spawn a deadly mob that could possibly kill them? The answer is because of the cool things they can get from killing the Wither.

Upon death, Withers will drop 20 XP orbs and a nether star, which players can use to create beacons.

This article will inform players on the five best enchantments to have when taking on a Wither.

Unbreaking is a universal enchantment in Minecraft that is good for just about anything. Unbreaking increases the durability of the weapon or armor that the player is using.

This means players will be able to get more uses out of the equipment without it breaking as easily. Unbreaking would be useful on a bow or on the player's armor when taking on the Wither.

Since Withers can be airborne, a bow could prove to be a really good attack weapon.. The max level of enchantment for unbreaking is level three.
