Summoned by Evokers
A vex is a flying hostile mob that is summoned in small groups by the evoker, another hostile mob, during combat.
Spawning[edit | edit source]
Vexes only spawn naturally as part of an evoker's summoning attack; the evoker signals this attack by producing off-white smoke and a high-pitched horn-like sound. Between 2 and 4 vexes will appear near the evoker. The evoker will summon vexes even if there are some still left alive from the last summoning.
