The Totem of Undying in a Mob drop in Minecraft can be obtained by killing Evokers. Evokers are a type of Pillager Mob that dabbles in Magic & Sorcery. A Totem of Undying is a guaranteed drop from an Evoker and the number of Totems obtained cannot be increased with Looting. Evokers naturally spawn in Woodland Mansions in certain rooms of the Structure. They do not respawn nor do they despawn unless killed in Woodland Mansions. Another way of finding Evokers is by doing a Raid on Hard Difficulty. They will spawn from the 5th Wave of the Raid. To start a Raid, you will need to have the Bad Omen status which you can get it by killing a Pillager Captain. Check out our guide on How To Start A Pillager Raid In Minecraft to know more about it.
