Useful Tips:

1: Splash Potions Of Healing Will Be Useful Not Only To Heal Yourself, But
Use As A Grenade For Wither Skeletons.

2:Wither Skeletons Are 3 Blocks High, Like Fighting Endermen, Make A Base
That Is 2-2.5 Blocks High So They Can't Hit You (Or Pass Through).

3: Get Thorns On Your Armor. This Will Help With Killing Them.

4: Expand The Area As Much As You Can. This Will Help With Mobility And
Possible Spawn Rates.

5: Make As Many Floors As Possible. this Will Help With Spawn Rates.

Just so you guys know, projectile protection protects from ghasts and
blazes as well as blast protection which reduces knock back from blaze and
ghast hits.

Author Jesse xander (10 months)
there is a lot a false info in the comments here , i have done some tests
in 1.7.2 and wither skeletons can spawn anywhere in a nether fortress not
just the walkways , also the myth that cobblestone as a spawning base has
a higher chance of spawning normal skeletons is false , i have done some
tests and it seems that 1 out of every 5 skeletons is a normal skeleton
regardless of the base and to make sure i am not giving false info i even
looked into the code and there is nothing about cobblestone spawning less
wither skeletons ,hoped this helped ,if you even read the whole thing

Author gopro2027 (7 months)
anyone else thinking that the nether fortress would be a cool house? if it

10 hours later, 3 skulls. This is pretty old but anyways, I prefer just to
build a straight line that you just run back and forth in. Much easier than
this. Mobs despawn and respawn on the bridge as you run, just "extend" the
nether fortress, works great for me.

whats the song?

Author PlaneGangFilms (9 months)

Author JDiiduhDee (9 months)
i have a question, can wither skeleton spawning areas matter with the y
coordinate? Like if i go to the top of the nether, but if u go down like
100 blocks there a nether fortess, can a wither skeleton spawn on the top
of the nether? I'm wonder to see if i should keep the stairs or just flat
everything out because theres a fortress below

Well presented

Author phantomcreeperify (9 months)
A few more things that could have been done to improve spawn rates further
would have been to slab the areas that you couldn't get to, also if you
feel confident about your gear you should kill the pigmen that spawn there
because they can take up a large part of the mob cap if they are not taken
care of( I only suggest doing this if you have a resistance and regen
beacon covering the area that you are fighting)

Author Francisco Antonio (10 months)
the whither skeleton can spawn under the fortres in the netherrack

Author KingOfAllChunks (10 months)
You got so damn lucky on your 12 kill!

Author 69Jerrinho (10 months)
To me this is pretty much common sense..thanks for the effort, but this
hasn't taught me anything. Also I suggest containing blaze spawners for
much more relaxed and resource friendly hunting. I built very simple
XP-farms around the blaze spawners to do so.

Author Austin Hayducky (10 months)
Don't wither skeletons mostly spawn in the intersections between fortress
