    Edit 3: LSK FatalLegend said he has a world to help with killing and spawning the wither. Thanks again LSK FatalLegend.

    All credit goes to JackSucksAtLife. He makes fighting the wither easy. Also if I were you carry a lot of milk because that cures the wither sickness. I guess he only carried two because he's used to fighting it.

    Edit: You will need to be close to the wither to unlock the achievement when it dies.

    Edit 2: Screenster says that if you are playing on Easy you wont get wither sickness. Great find by screenster. So now you wont have to carry milk.

    KriSpy CharMZSorry about the late reply. Just got home last night. I got the achievement just staying close to it while my friends killed the Wither. So no you don't need to get the killing blow.

    bribri343Hi I'm sure your post was helpful to most, but unfortunately you weren't able to help me with specific steps in preparing for and killing the wither. I figured that out on my own. Cool we both won the achievement though!

    BrutexCHieftainFor those still needing this achievement, there should be 5 wither skeleton heads in a chest in the tutorial, Banner tutorial. Only thing you need are 4 soul sand blocks close to the existing nether portal.

    The easiest way to Kill a Wither is to make a long narrow hallway on the bottom of the world. Make a small room to spawn then wither. Just hit and back up when you can. Diamond Sword and Armor makes it easier. Enchanted Diamond equipment makes it even easier. I used Sharp 3 Diamond Sword and Full Diamond armor with Level 1 Protection Diamond Chest plate. You can see me spawn and kill the Wither at the end of the video below. (2:44)

    I haven't had a chance to test this yet, but the other video solutions seem to showing sub-optimal methods for killing the Wither. This video also goes into the various ways the Wither can be spawned and how to abuse this to make killing the wither very easy.

    It's worth noting that the Xbox 360 and Xbox One updates bring the Wither spawn up to 1.8+ of Minecraft, so some Wither videos are out of date and use unreliable methods since the update.

    Grrrrandall pointed out in the comments a location in the Tutorial where you can use this method:
    For title update 48 I found a 3x3 located at X84 Y122 Z-53
    Please note that this is referring to the ROOF of the Nether - in case you didn't know, the top layer of the Nether is bedrock, just like the bottom layer in the regular world. Thus, you need to get up high in the Nether at the co-ordinates suggested above, and use the bedrock in the roof to trap the Wither.
