Name

nether_star

The Nether Star is an item drop from the Wither that is used only in crafting beacons. It has the same animated glow that enchanted items and potions use. The dropped Nether Star can not be destroyed by explosions. However, it can still be destroyed by fire, lava, and cacti.

[edit] Obtaining

The nether star can only be obtained by defeating the Wither. One nether star will be dropped each time.

[edit] Usage

The nether star's only use is to craft the beacon, which supplies the player with indefinitely lasting potion effects while in range (10-50 blocks depending on the layers of the pyramid), when placed on a mineral block (either iron, gold, diamond or emerald) pyramid and 'fuelled' by the blocks' respective items.

[edit] History

Official release
1.4.2 12w34a Nether Star texture added.
12w36a Nether Star implemented into the game, as the drop of Wither.
12w37a Texture changed from Second Nether star.png to 12w37a nether star.png (The item sprite no longer has a dark outline).

[edit] Trivia

  • The Nether Star is extremely rare and is considered one of the rarest items in the game due to the length of time it takes to acquire the skulls needed to create the Wither that drops the Nether Star. The boss fight itself is not that difficult, due to the many different methods that make the fight much easier.
  • The Nether Star uses the shimmering texture glint without being enchanted, similar to golden apples, written books and potions.
