... The Woodland Mansion houses many treasures worth the risk - not least of which resides within the robes of the Evoker himself. Best him in combat and he will drop a Totem of Undying - a magic relic that, if equipped during some fatal calamity, will bring the player back from the brink of death!

Marsh Davies[1]

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]

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 command.

Effect[edit]

When activated, the totem of undying restores 1♥, removes all existing status effects, then grants 45 seconds of Regeneration II, 40 seconds of Fire Resistance II‌[BE only] or 40 seconds of Fire Resistance[upcoming: JE 1.16.2] 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.

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