The amount of damage inflicted to the affected entity is shown in the table below:
|Level||Ticks per||per second|
- Due to damage immunity, the effective rate is 10 ticks ( × 1 per second) at levels 4 and up.
The player's hearts turn black ( × 10)( × 10 on hardcore mode), making it harder, but still possible for the player to see their health. Amplifiers outside the range 0–31 (corresponding to levels 1–32) are used modulo 32.
No mobs are immune to wither, though witches are highly resistant to it.
- Death is reported as "<player> withered away".
