    The Totem of Undying is dropped by a mob called the Evoker. Evokers look like grey villagers with green robes.

    These mobs types are known as illagers. There are 3 and only Evokers drop a Totem of Undying. They are hostile towards the player.
    By killing an Evoker, you will also unlock:

    Mike731Still works as of 2.10.2020. for me he was up the stairs turn right, 2nd or 3rd door. Took a few tries to beat him without a weapon, but I'm a glutton for punishment.

    The other solutions here describe wonderfully how to get this achievement, however the seeds provided may not work anymore due to game updates. That is why I am just offering help for people who want the achievement quickly as I have a map that has you spawn right next to the mansion

    Send me a message on Xbox and I'll reply when I can and get you that achievement. I may show up as offline, but I do read all my messages. All I ask in return is for a nice up-vote. wave

    Hey everyone as of 1/28/18 this seed works. When you spawn you are literally right beside a mansion. This will let you get the Feeling III achievement as well as the Cheating Death achievement. Make sure you are holding the totem when you die... If you don't... just respawn pick it up again and then die again! Happy Hunting!!!

    Zaro KarosThis is the best solution, I ran in with only a wooden sword and got both achievements in less than a minute. The manison is seconds away from the spawn.

    In order to unlock this achievement, you will need:
    1. To find a Woodland Mansion (these are really large dark oak mansions and are pretty hard to miss).
    2. Have decent armour and weapons (I recommend at least iron).


    An easy way to find a woodland mansion is to make a Classic sized world and make the Biomes small. You should eventually find one.

    Now that you have completed the basics, we'll start with the harder part.

    In order to obtain a Totem of Undying, you will need to find an Evoker. These mobs look like Vindicators, but with black robes. Once you find them, do not hesitate to charge immediately and kill it with your sword before it summons any Vexes. It should drop the Totem after dying.

    Now, you will need to die while holding the totem. The easiest and fastest way for me is to jump off of a cliff. Once you land you should be alive again and the Totem should hover up in front of you and disappear.
    By this point the achievement should unlock.
