    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.

    Lord Betus It worked for me once I destroyed the top layer and then placed it back down. What is weird though is that on Xbox it says I have done it and it popped on screen for me, yet it says I haven't done it yet on TA.

    TheWyzard This appears to be fixed in the 1.13 update that just landed today, October 29. Good Hunting!

    Bonkekook I used a mix of all blocks in an Xbox One Tutorial world that I imported. Maybe something some(not all, obviously) people are missing is that although there appears to be a second layer built in the tutorial, its actually hollow and needs to be filled in. Killed and replaced the beacon and it popped no problem.But I used 5 Gold Blocks along with 70+ of Emerald and Diamond blocks mismatched together and it worked.
