The Nether Star is possibly the rarest item in Minecraft, aside from the Dragon Egg. To obtain it, the player must defeat the fearsome Wither. Any method other than the player killing the Wither (death by Iron Golems/Wolves) will not yield a Nether Star and be a waste of Soul Sand and Wither Skeleton Skulls, which are very hard to obtain and can only be obtained by killing Wither Skeletons.
The Nether Star has only one use: crafting Beacons.
- Although the Nether Star is not enchanted, it has the gleam of an enchanted item, similarly to Potions. This is often seen in very powerful or very useful items.
