The new Elytra tutorial has taken the place of the older Tutorial. Therefor, the above solutions are sadly invalid.

Items Needed:

1. 3 Wither Skeleton Skulls
2. 8 Gold Blocks
3. 1 Apple
4. 1 Crafting Table
5. 1 Iron Pickaxe
6. Diamond Blocks for Armor
7. 4 Soul Sand

You no longer need a Diamond Pickaxe or Flint and Steel (as you don't need to do anything with the Nether Portal or Nether Fortress' anymore, just pick up Soul Sand right outside the portal.) You also Wont be needing Loot III as you can get the Skulls from a nearby chest.

The new tutorial makes getting Wither Skulls dramatically easier. You can find a chest at X-16 Y 82 Z-95 containing 5 Wither Skeleton Skulls. (It also holds all the wool for the Rainbow Collection Achievement.)

As for Soul Sand, you can get them in (and surprisingly outside of the Nether Portal at X: -236, Y: 94, Z: 203. You'll need 4 pieces.

Elytra rings along the high up towers are made of Emerald, Gold, and Diamond for your Armor/Weapons upgrading. I'd recommend getting 8 Gold Blocks from here for your Notch Apple (The glowing Gold one that requires Gold Blocks, not the regular one that requires Gold Ingots, you'll also need to "break" Oak Tree Leaves to get an Apple which has a 1 in 200 chance of dropping) Then tear up part of the Beacon to get Diamond for your Armor.

No sign of Sharpness III books yet.

Dig a path underground and end the path with a 5x5x5 room for the battle. It's recommended to go moderately deep underground as the Wither's attacks are explosive and if he gets outside he will float away from you and out of reach of your sword.

Once you have the room ready, place the four pieces of Soul Sand in a "T" shape with one on the ground, a second on top of the first one, one of the left of the top one, and one on the right of the top one. Then place a Wither Skull on the top of the upper three Soul Sands to spawn the Wither. (I recommend eating your Notch Apple before placing the third Skull) Once you spawn it, it will fill up it's health bar and then cause an explosion around it, so keep your distance until it explodes, then rush in for the battle.

Below is a video I made of me getting this my first time, you can do this in around 10 Minutes from scratch. (I sucked at fighting the Wither and still won, so fighting veterans will have much better luck) Try to keep jumping while attacking, eat when your hunger lowers to keep your auto health regeneration going, try to be on higher blocks to get a better angle at him. If you manage to make a Sharpness III, by all means add it to your weapon to make this much easier.
