Go kill the Wither on hardcore in an open field of battle and get back to us.
While I've never bothered with doing hardcore mode I don't see why it would be considered hard to do. On one of my old worlds I killed the wither on hard difficulty without using any armor, if you use any armor the wither just becomes very easy to kill.
dude the wither has 300 hearts (150) 2 armor points and will kill anything in sight even other withers the wither is copletelty random
the enderdragon was hella easy i took him on with prot 1 dia armor power 4 bow sharp 3,fire asp 2, kno2, dia sword and i notch apple a stack of sand and a shovel/ pick.
i took on the wither in a cave and with about the same gear and i died
The wither is actually very easy if you know what you're doing, I actually made a guide for how to kill it without using any armor when the wither first came out, although it might be somewhat outdated by now.
It can have 1,000 hearts, but the fact that matters is it would still be a gear check, not something that is actually hard. Don't have a good enough setup, you won't kill it. Have a good set up, it won't kill you.
To be honest the wither isn't all that much of a gear check, the only things you need to have a good chance of killing it is a smite IV diamond sword and a power IV bow. It's even possible to do it with an unenchanted bow but it becomes annoying to do, the time that I did it it took around 4 minutes to get it down to half health and if you make even one mistake during that whole time you end up dying. Although as far as I know it's not possible to kill it with an unenchanted sword.
I hate hardcore mode, because you lose your world. Oh you built that huge fortress but your cat jumped on your keyboard and knocked you off a ledge? Deleted! I don't mind the perma-death, I just hate the whole "everything is gone forever" aspect of it. Maybe some game mode where you could still revisit in creative or a kind of spectator mode (and of course all the usual number increasing things that difficulty increases entail).
I thought Minecraft was insanely hard when I first joined. Now, I have everything down. I know all the tricks, all the tips, so it is easyto me. If you don't think it's hard enough, try adventure maps, or play on hard mode with rules you set for yourself. (Like, you have a Minecraft week to gather items, then you go into the Nether with enough obsidian to make a nether portal, close the portal behind you, and throw away the flint and steel The goal: Find flint and steel in a Nether Fortress, and don't die trying)
Minecraft isn't easy or hard, Minecraft is however easy or hard you make it.
Don't even talk about easy. You get diamonds, kill ender dragon.. That's just the basic surface level of Minecraft.
What you really got to know is all the science behind it, and create something magnificent out of it.
For example, I believe it is "hard" to get a ghast to go into the overworld.
It is also hard to make an automatic gold/iron farm (for some people)
Create a world that looks hard to do even in creative.
Are you able to do those? Good luck...
