They spawn rarely in nether fortresses.

A Christian has about as much reason to trust God as Chell has to trust GLaDOS.

They aren't so rare.
I generated a new world and found a nether fortress, Just keep looking.

Not too sure, never seen a wither skeleton in game, however I haven't gone into the nether for a long time, but I quickly generated one to test something and spawned next to a nether fortress.

Nether fortresses were not added until the 1.9 pre-releases.

Rarity can vary a lot when it comes to find nether fortresses and wither skeletons.

How do you get your mods to work? I made alot of mods none worked i used modmakerbasic to make them choose block new block name if it generates if its only creative or survival i made mud mod chose generation same for amythist also textures and animations made amythist armor and recipe same for tools i also made a bone pickaxe mod for my friend i made a mod to craft 1 wood to 1 diamond with recipe just put wood at any block on creating table amythist armor is same as other armor looks same accept its purple also dark purple for shade tools 2 sticks and 3 amythist is to craft pickaxe also same for all tools there is also amythist block looks like diamond gold or iron but purple amythist ore rarity is like 30% it drops one amythist always you can decide rarity for any amount of number in dropping or no rarity at all but do you know how to get it to work?

The amythist one was for one of my friends thats birth-day is 3 days from now and mine is 13 days after so 16 days until mine and my brother one of my friends thats 7 birthday is 4 days before mine and my brothers

1: This doesn't seem to have anything to do with wither skeletons.  If you have a new, unrelated question or topic of discussion, you should post it in its own thread (and in the proper section,) not just tacked onto the end of some random, unrelated topic.

2: I say "seems to" because I didn't actually read very far into it.  I tried, but it was hurting my brain.  Punctuation is a lot more important than you might think.

3: Please put your signature image in your actual signature, not in the body of your posts.  We don't want to have to delete it every time we quote you.

4: With regards to actual wither skeletons, as has been mentioned they spawn in nether fortresses.  I'm not sure though, if they're actually all that "rare."  I have a mod installed that shows what mobs can spawn in any given area, and the weighted chance those mobs are given.  Inside a nether fortress, it says "Blaze(10), PigZombie(5), (Wither)Skeleton(10), MagmaCube(3)."  Which would indicate to me that blazes and wither skeletons are the most likely spawn, with equal chances.  Then pig zombie is half as likely as either of the other two, and a magma cube would be the "rare" spawn with only roughly 1/10 of spawns (3/28 to be specific) being magma cubes.

They (wither skeletons) do require a light level of 7 or below to spawn, though, so if your fortress is lit up like mine is, that might be why you're seeing a lot more blazes (and even pig zombies, which are supposed to be twice as rare) than you are wither skeletons.

They are only found in the Nether Fortresses. Also, they are rare, so you'll have to spend a lot of time there if you expect to find them.
