Well, that method doesn't require armor or anything just sword and bow and no armors whatever happens if u die u don't lose important items.
For me, this is the best way since it doesn't need any Redstone stuff it doesn't really suffocate the wither so it's technically not cheating. It's just hiding yourself from his explosions at a lower level Really smart. Thanks for the tips man WP.
About the XP farm, well I don't know any other way than to AFK. I AFK while I work and during break times I just open the game clear the spiders from the spawn get like full inventory of spider web and then go back up to my waiting room for the next couple of hours so I made a chest full of enchantment books really fast. Now I can make up my armors again quite easy thanks to this XP farm. I dont know of any other option really, unless U get a mob spawner next to your spawn chunks which will force them to be active at all times and you can do whatever and still get mobs to kill.
Okay, UPDATE: Turning to peaceful despawned the damn thing.
Bad news is I lost all my armors. Everything. Feather Falling IV + Frost Walker II (I can get frost walker easy from my village trade center) Thorns II with Blast resistance armors (curse you creepers) respiration helmet. Lesson learned Got an XP farm that works really well so I'm gonna replace everything I lost in 2 days max.
Big thanks to xadan MC player for the suggestion. I was thinking about going to Creative but that would have disabled all other achievements and I didn't want that
But no, I can't send iron golems down since I don't have an iron golem farm yet. Though it's on my TO DO list.
I had the decency to summon him like 50 chunks away from my home but he has all my stuff. I had like maximum enchanted armors and sword so I decided that with one enchanted golden apple and 2x instant healing potion II would be able to kill him. Yea but no, I only got to 50% of his HP when he killed me.
Now he is buried at bedrock level with all my precious items and I don't know what to do I tried filling the room with TNT and when he blew it up he took like 0 damage. Since I don't have any armors now I can't get close to him
I watched about a dozen videos about how to kill the wither but it all takes preparation. And all I did was summon the damn thing underground.
