Wither Skeleton Tweaks Mod changes the way that Wither Skeletons behave. In vanilla, there are numerous issues with their spawning, their drops, and it is generally regarded as a chore to grind for skulls.
This seeks to remedy that by doing a few things.
- Adding a wither skull fragment to the drop tables. This is by default worth 1/9th of a skull, and will always drop when a skull has not been dropped.
- Forcing all skeleton spawns in the nether to be wither skeletons. Vanilla uses RNG to decide if a skeleton will be wither or not, even in the nether. This makes all skeletons spawned turn into wither skeletons, as long as they are in a Hell biome.
- Removing stone swords from drop tables. These things are annoying to funnel around, and are just completely useless. So, off with them.
- The immolation blade is also added, which emulates the Skullfire Sword from Avaritia (without costing you an extreme amount.)
The mod also comes with a powerful configuration file, which can change and control almost every aspect of the mod.
