wither effect[edit]

Does the wither skeleton give you the wither effect on easy difficulty? --Theneonracer137 (talk) 23:26, 28 December 2015 (UTC)

Yes. –LauraFi - talk 23:34, 28 December 2015 (UTC)

Charged creepers and mob heads[edit]

So someone found this information, exactly? And how is this situation at all possible outside of creative mode or commands, to spawn creepers in the nether or wither skeletons in the overworld? -- 21:41, 24 March 2016 (UTC)

Mobs can travel through portals. Skylinerw (talk) 22:20, 24 March 2016 (UTC)
The phrasing makes it feel like you only get it when you kill it with a charged creeper and no other instances. 09:01, 1 June 2016 (UTC)


---In the Console Edition, all skeleton spawn eggs spawn wither skeletons when used in the nether.

I don't understand this statement. Is it poorly written or am I just dumb?-- 13:44, 20 May 2016 (UTC)

Added a link to the sentence. Is it better? --AttemptToCallNil, previously known as GreenStone (report bug, view backtrace) 13:58, 20 May 2016 (UTC)

Damage from wither status[edit]

I read 7 and then see 4 black hearts. Later i read 1 and see 1 black hart. I read 4 and see 2 black hearts. That leads me to think it should be 7=3,5 black hart and 1=0,5 heart. Thats the system used for red harts, and those are displayed correctly. But for this black hearts i cant see halfes, only complete ones. Is there something wrong with the template (i guess its a template) generating black hearts? / 19:45, 12 September 2016 (UTC)

Screenshot the page and zoom in really far where it says 7 hearts. You'll see that the right half has no reddish outline, but the left half does. That's how it actually looks in-game, the heart is the same black color as the background, except for that faint reddish outline. – Sealbudsman talk/contr 20:09, 12 September 2016 (UTC)
True, but i had to check with lots of zoom on a big screen. Could it not be clearer? Like half white background and red boarder. Imho its clearly worth more to be able to see/read the wiki then "preserving game exactness" in inline text graphics. / 08:38, 13 September 2016 (UTC)

Wither Skeletons Spawn on Nether Brick Anywhere in the Nether in Pocket Edition[edit]

I play on the Windows 10 Edition (basically pocket edition). I'm building in the Nether with Nether Brick away from Nether Fortresses, and I've witnessed Wither Skeletons spawn on it. Can someone else confirm this? If it can be confirmed, it should be added to the article. This could make for some nice wither skeleton farms if proven to be true!--LinuxKpenguin (talk) 20:28, 6 January 2017 (UTC)

Wither effect from roses but not skulls?[edit]

Are Wither skeletons not just fully immune to withering no matter the source? I tried testing this by pitting a Wither skeleton against a Wither, but the skull projectiles never seemed to inflict the status on the Skeleton. Additionally, Wither skeletons being susceptible to the wither effect was a reported as a bug (MC-101127) last year and was marked as fixed as of snapshot 18w43a, but that report didn't specify between the source of the effect, so if they fixed it, I would think they just made them completely immune, no?
