This area is a work in progress, but the witch farm is functional.

witches

Dude, omg that is awesome. I had like 5 witches that I named and we were gonna put them in defensive areas, but Silo killed 'em. I can just imagine you having a whole army of witches attacking people…. pretty sick if you think about it..

I've killed 10 witches at once myself, they wouldn't be the best defense, but it IS a cool idea. I had an idea of finding 5-10 zombies that can pick up gear, naming them and equipping them with prot iv armor and sharp v swords, putting them in a small room and using it as a defense or trap of some kind

Hey! I've built the same design as this but my rates are quite low (1-2 witches per 30 minutes or something) and I've done ALOT of lighting.

what are your rates? Seems you've dechunked a lot of the area, maybe I should do the same to improve my rates

Thanks for any advice!

I haven't really counted accurately yet but the rate is somewhere around 20 per hour. That's far from perfect as we're only just a little more than halfway done dechunking. Lighting is a good start, making sure that all caves in the area up to 128 blocks away are well lit is important. Dechunking would help your farm increase rates, but to do it to the extent we are (90 chunks) takes a huge amount of work. I'll pm you a couple tips I've learned I don't necessarily want everyone else know.

Pretty much, with one small tweak. Other designs use slime blocks which don't work or iron golems which are unreliable.

Lol yeah, I had like 6 zpigs with god armor, but they almost killed me a bunch of times, so I decided to kill them with my bow. Scary af thou

maybe you could put armor on witches with a dispenser like you can with villagers

Woah, I didn't know you could do that… I'm gonna have to try that tomorrow.

Ava, I've done a similiar design and it also had those 1 to 2 witches per half an hour. And I spent major time on lighting the caves…
