Notable Attacks/Techniques:

  • Wither Skull: Projectiles in the form of skulls are shot at the opponent. They fly in straight line and aren't affected by gravity. On impact, they explode and give to everyone caught in the radius the Wither Effect.
  • Blue Wither Skull: A special kind of Wither Skull. Unlike normal ones, they treat every material as having durability equal to that of wood, making it easy to destroy even the toughest materials.
  • Dash: If a Wither is severely damaged, it will sometimes use the dash attack which destroys all material and hurts anything in its way.
  • Crunch: If the Wither finds itself in a tight spot, it will use a "crunch" attack, which will shatter any matter in a radius of about two meters around it.
  • Wither Effect: A type of poison afflicted by the Wither Skulls. Targets affected by it will slowly wither and decompose away. This affects even undeads who are otherwise unaffected by regular poison.
