A totem of undying is an uncommon combat item that can save holders from death. It is dropped from evokers, which spawn in woodland mansions and raids.

Obtaining[edit]

Evokers[edit]

Evokers always drop one totem of undying upon death. The drop rate is not affected by Looting.

Usage[edit]

The totem animation in Java Edition.
Animation of the totem activating in Java Edition

If the player is holding a totem of undying in their off-hand or main-hand slot and receives otherwise fatal damage, the totem saves the player from death. The totem of undying must be in the player's hand (main hand or offhand) for it to work—it does not work if it is in the hotbar, unless selected. Foxes can use totems of undying if they are holding one. The totem can be used only once; it disappears after use. It does not save the player from death caused by void damage or the /kill commands.

Effect[edit]

When activated, the totem of undying restores 1♥, removes all existing status effects, then grants 40‌[BE only] or 45‌[JE only] seconds of Regeneration II, 40 seconds of Fire Resistance II‌[BE only][until BE 1.16.100] or I‌[JE only][upcoming: BE 1.16.100] and 5 seconds of Absorption II. An animation shows the totem of undying appearing to hover in front of the player's screen, similar to the animation seen when a player receives the Bad Omen or Hero of the Village effect‌[BE only] or encounters an elder guardian. When killed by an Instant Damage tipped arrow, the arrow's instant damage takes effect after the totem has been activated.[verify]

The totem of undying also works in hardcore mode, as well as hardcore multiplayer.
