    To fully power a beacon, you need diamond, gold, iron, and or emerald blocks to create a 9x9, 7x7, 5x5 and 3x3 hill of blocks. On top of these blocks you need to place a beacon, which can be created by using 3 obsidian, 5 glass and 1 nether star. Acquiring this amount of blocks can take a very long time.

    Therefore, I've uploaded a world with a fully powered beacon to dropbox. Simply destroy the top bit of the beacon and place it again to unlock the achievement.
    Download the Beacon+sponge world.

    Itzz Sh0wt1m3No worries. Keep in mind that notifications seem to have vanished. Ive never seem a notification for any of the DLC achievements

    Fenom007I can confirm that it's glitchy, I fulfilled the requirements about 4 times before the achievement finally popped. I used a Minecraft launcher mod instead of your world though. Notifications have been fixed too. I noticed they started popping again on my last couple of achievements for this dlc.

    RVM@Fenom and @Shank, did you have to do anything special to get this to unlock? I've destroyed and reapplied the top of the beacon 10+ times and nothing unlocks. Same thing with the sponge, I can dry it out and retry over and over and nothing unlocks. On 0.16 as well.

    Shank1998@RVM I tried about 50 times before it did anything and reloaded the world on my phone about 5 times. Though no I didn't do anything special the time that it unlocked. I feel that it is just buggy sadly. Hope that helps!

    RVMOk that's good to know that it's not just me, I'll keep at it and reload the level as needed. Thanks!

    Edit: I've now gotten every DLC achievement to unlock except for this one. I don't know what it is about this beacon not working. I've tried Itzz's Beacon+Sponge level multiple times, as well as the new one he linked in the Elder Guardian guide that Sean created. Also, I've deleted and reinstalled the game. I guess I'll just try it ever so often and let the game run to see if it eventually unlocks.

    Edit 2: I finally got this to unlock.

    I completely uninstalled the game and all downloaded maps.

    Reinstalled, signed into Xbox live in game.

    Exited and only downloaded the MCPE_016_Achievement map: https://www.dropbox.com/sh/v6ggssr1ag7uerp/AAB_CpKvR127iWtlW...

    Loaded it up, built the beacon and placed it.

    Then ran around and opened a couple of chests, and it finally had a notification pop up.

    Good luck to all, and huge thanks to Sh0wt1m3 for these maps!

    JuIIIianTHANK YOU SOOOO MUCH! YOU & SEANTHEPROGAMER ARE L E G E N D. And by the way, Removing the beacon and then removing a block is the way to go. Put the beacon on top, then replace the block and Boom.

    SmactSilly+1 JuIIIian! I tried this as well and it only popped after doing this. On a side note, the achievement notifications seem to take quite a bit longer on PE.

    Death Punch KOThis achieve was buggy for me as well. I popped it by first removing the beacon, replacing it, and then removing 1 block from each level of the hill of blocks. After I did that it popped. Not sure if it was a delayed pop, but that is how I got it.

    segagamerI've tried destroying and rebuilding the entire beacon pyramid and it's still not unlocking for me, even after a reinstall...

    XL VENOM R8you need to feed it a ignot/diamond and apply a ability for it to consider complete.
