I killed a 'Skeletal Knight' earlier, and it dropped a wither skull. I'm not sure if they always do that, but it's a nice rare drop either way.

It's a wither skeleton, of course it drops wither skulls, it's just a 1% chance or something.

EDIT: So that means we have at least 2 wither skulls, cause I remember someone got one before... if we get 3 we can blow our server up!

Yeah, there's a chance that they drop those. I'm not sure what the percent rate is, but I would assume it's the default?

Well, if it was me you remember, then forget it. I lost that skull ages ago.
AKA Rvan. That's R.van; you pronounce it as "Ar-van", not "R-van".

This is precisely the reason why I was trying to disable this earlier. Even if most folks didn't abuse that, it would only take one Wither to destroy a fairly large portion of the map. It's like if there was a button in the world to release an Ender Dragon.
There's no way to disable them dropping wither skulls, either - that's something in the raw Minecraft code based off of their base mob being a wither skeleton.

We'll be seeing more interesting mobs and things to run into soon - even some mobs that drop unique or rare items.

Why would a wither destroy things, wouldnt the explosions be disabled like with creepers.
Otherwise I'm fairly sure you could disable witherhead drops or just the making of withers.

Can't wait for those mobs, would be fun to get some variation from the default.

Actually, Assassin is right, the explosions won't do anything more than deal damage and kill all the passive mobs.

iI can check if wither explosions are covered by doMobGriefing, but in general there's other issues with spawning a Wither outside of building damage. There's also worries outside of the Wither itself given the nature of MythiMobs and how its custom mobs interact with the world.

Again - we'll likely be seeing fancy mobs again.
