I go to the nether quite often to hunt blazes and wither skeletons, but i cant seem to find any wither skulls when i kill wither skeletons, i know they are rare, but how rare? i really want to spawn the wither to defeat it so i'll feel accomplished. So what are the chances of one dropping one?

I think it has a 4% drop rate.

It has a 2.5% drop rate, as so with all the other rare drops. =)

I believe 1 in 40, though it could also be 1 in 200...

Assuming you don't use looting, you have a 1 out of 40 chance of a rare drop. However, only half of those will be heads and the rest stone swords. You need to kill 80 on average for a skull.

Personally I think that skulls have their own drop rate, I've collected a total of around 12 skulls and around 60-70 stone swords while fighting the wither skeletons.
