    To create and fully power a beacon you will need to complete two separate tasks. The first is to construct a beacon itself which requires a Nether Star. The Nether Star is dropped from the Wither after he is killed and is a 100% drop rate.

    The second part requires collecting enough materials to build the pyramid. They can be built from Iron, Gold, Diamond, Emeralds or a combination of all 4. The pyramid is 4 levels tall and must be made of Blocks, ie Iron Block, Gold Block etc. Here is the full list of materials.

    Layer 1 - 9x9 square of blocks. 729 Iron/Gold Ore or Emeralds/Diamonds
    Layer 2 - 7x7 square of blocks. 441 Iron/Gold Ore or Emeralds/Diamonds
    Layer 3 - 5x5 square of blocks. 225 Iron/Gold Ore or Emeralds/Diamonds
    Layer 4 - 3x3 square of blocks. 81 Iron/Gold Ore or Emeralds/Diamonds

    This leaves a 1 block space at the top of the pyramid for the Beacon itself. You must then sacrifice 1 Iron Bar, 1 Gold Bar, 1 Emerald or 1 Diamond to power the pyramid. You must also select your Pyramid Effect when you do this. Powering the pyramid via the Beacon block will unlock the achievement.

    Import tutorial world from Xbox one edition. Then load up the world and in the middle of town is a beacon that's at level 1. There are two towers with rings of emerald, diamond, and gold blocks on them. Build scaffolding with your block of choice to collect the blocks and finish the pyramid to level 4. All levels of the pyramid must be made of iron, gold, diamond, or emerald. When done break and reattach beacon block and POP. Your done.
    Edit: I forgot to add that you need to sacrifice an ingot to the beacon when your done. Happy hunting!

    BNC129I looked and tried all comments I could find. None of which I could get to work. Then I noticed people saying the imported tut world still pops it, which made me wonder what is different between the two. The only thing I could think of was difficulty. I then turned it from peaceful to easy, removed the top layer (9 blocks and beacon) and replaced. After I chose my buff, it popped. Hopefully, this helps you..
