Evokers are a hostile mob in Minecraft that only spawns during certain occasions. This mob can be quite dangerous, but they drop the prized Totem of the Undying; a rare item that gives you a second chance to live after an untimely death. Rather than attacking you head-on, Evokers can summon vexes to deal damage.
In this guide, we are going to go over everything you need to know about Evokers. This will include spawning conditions, attack patterns, and possible drops. Evokers vary slightly from Java and Bedrock, but overall, they behave the same and can still both drop the Totem of the Undying.
Evokers wants only spawn in Woodland Mansions, or in raids. Let’s take a look at both of these below.
Woodland Mansions are large wooden structures that appear in the Dark Forest biome. Overall, these mansions are rare other don’t often appear close to the world spawn point (0,0).
Evokers have a chance to spawn inside the rooms of the mansion, but will not respawn after defeat. This means that once you clear out a Woodland Mansion, Evokers will not reappear.
Evokers will begin to spawn once you reach wave five of a raid. The number of waves that a raid has depends on the difficulty setting. If you are playing in an easy-difficulty world, raids will only have three waves, which means Evokers will not spawn.
Once you reach wave five of a raid, Evokers will start to appear. After reaching wave seven, Evokers will begin to ride Ravagers as well. The combination of these two mobs is very dangerous so if you see them together, it’s best to take them out quickly.
Unlike other mobs, Evokers will not directly attack you with a weapon. Instead, they will summon Vexes and fangs.
When an Evoker is about to summon, they will raise their arms above their head, and you will see swirly particles appear. Let’s take a look at the two attacks below.
- Particle Color: Purple
- Accompanies with a low pitched horn sound
Fang attacks are summoned directly from the ground, dealing damage to any player above. These can be avoided by simply moving away. If you are caught in a fang attack, you will take six hearts worth of damage, which remains constant for every difficulty level.
Evokers will summon fangs in a straight line leading from them, but if you are close enough, they will summon the fangs in a circle around them.
- Particle Color: White
- Accompanies with a high-pitched horn sound
Vexes are small, flying mobs that appear in groups of three. A spawned Vex will appear holding an iron sword, used to attack the player. Vexes can pass through any type of block without taking damage; this includes lava and bedrock.
When an Evoker begins to summon more Vexes, the previously summoned ones will not disappear, however after around 30 seconds, the Vex will take damage and start to die.
Changing Wool Color Of Sheep
When idle, Evokers will change the color of a blue sheep’s wool to red. This occurs if the blue sheep is within 16 blocks from the Evoker. While doing this, the Evoker will also chant ‘wololo!’.
Although this is very impractical, it is a fun reference to Age of Empires. In this game, priest units can convert enemy units, which changes the color of their uniform. While doing this, the priest units will chant ‘wololo!’ as well.
Lastly, let’s take a look at what an Evoker drops. This mob will have a 100 percent chance of dropping a Totem of Undying. This is an item that will save you from death if you hold it while dying. When you die while holding this item, it will appear on your screen accompanied by a noise similar to thunder.
After using the Totem of Undying, you will have all your HP restored, and have the following buffs.
- Regeneration II
- Fire Resistance I
- Absorption II
Evokers are the only mob in the game to drop this, which makes this quite rare. Additionally, the Evoker does not have to be killed by a player to drop this. This means that you can set up a raid farm that kills Evokers via fall damage and still get totems.
Upon death, Evokers will also drop the following materials.
- 0 to 1 emerald
- 10 experiences
- If killed by the following:
- Tamed Wolf
- Iron Golem
- If killed by the following:
- Ominous Banner
- If Evoker is a raid leader
That’s all there is to know about Evokers! Overall, the main reason to seek out this mob is to obtain Totems of Undying. If you are playing in a hardcore world, it may be worth your interest to kill an Evoker or two, so you can get your hands on this totem.
