Wither Skeletons are hostile creatures that we will only find in the Nether dimension. They have the same body as a normal skeleton, only in this case their bones are dark gray, almost black, and they are taller than a normal skeleton in Minecraft’s Overworld. Unlike a normal skeleton, the Wither Skeleton always wields a stone sword.
Wither Skeleton behavior
The Wither Skeleton is a creature that walks slowly through the world as long as it doesn’t detect a player. Don’t let that fool you though, because when they do detect a player, they quickly run towards them. Their attacks, unlike a skeleton from Minecraft’s Overworld, are with their stone sword.
In addition to the blow with the sword, these beings will give us the same adverse effects that a Wither would cause us. That is to say, for 10 seconds the life bar will go down progressively and will turn black, making it impossible to see the life level of our character. These creatures are more powerful than the skeletons of Minecraft’s Overworld, so you have to be careful with them.
Wither Skeleton spawning
This powerful creature only appears in the Nether dimension, but not anywhere, it only spawns around fortresses, as long as the illumination is less than or equal to 7.
