But it doesn’t matter if you have not yet the great technique of killing the vexes, as we’ll share the best way to kill vexes in Minecraft through our post. So, make sure to stay on this page.
Killing the Vexes, Here’s the Best Trick!
There are a bunch of killing options that you can take to defeat the vexes. Considering killing the vexes is hard, you may need some unorthodox methods to kill them. Here are the best ways to kill the vexes:
- Trap the vexes
Many players think that this is the best method to kill a vex. You need to place a lot of boats or minecarts around. Then, you should attempt to guide the vexes to get trapped in them. Make sure to stack a ton of boats around a villager. When the vexes are trapped inside the boat, they will sit and not perform anything until they despawn.
However, if the vexes didn’t get stuck in boats, they could still kill the villagers. But if there are no mobs that get put into boats, perhaps it will fix a lot of mob farming issues. To note that trapping a vex in boats is not totally needed for raid farms to function.
In this case, trapping the vexes in the boat can be used to raid farms, especially having a single villager surrounded by boats as a pillager outpost location. In this way, the pillagers can locate a path to the villager. So, they can be killed via lava/ falling and more.
- Kill the evoker
You can also try to kill the evoker if you get hard of killing the vexes. To kill the evoker, you can try to use a bow before it summons the vexes. In the case of killing the evoker, make sure to not make eye contact with a player or villager.
If the vexes are already summoned, you can try to kill them in one hit. So they won’t retaliate against a player by spawning the vexes. You should be careful when attacking the evoker, as it will summon between 2 and 4 vexes.
- Using Thorns Armor
If you use Thorns armor, it will cause attackers to be damaged as they deal damage to the wearer. When you are wearing any Thorns enchantment armor, you will have a level x15% chance of inflicting 1-4 damage on anyone who attacks them.
Each piece of armor with Thorns enchantment will give an independent chance to deal damage to the attacker. Well, the total amount of damage that you can be dealt is capped at 4. So if you want to deal the higher damage, you can try to use the Thorns Armor.
- Using Iron Golem
In the case of killing the vexes, you can try to use iron golems. They are a large, strong neutral utility mob that can defend players and villagers. Moreover, this is one of the few mobs that you can build and spawn in the game. To kill the vexes, you can make them tank the damage and attack them at the same time.
Identifying the Vexes’ Behaviour
It may be necessary for you to identify the vexes’ behaviour, especially if you have a plan to kill a vex in the game. After you know their behaviour, you can understand the do’s and don’ts. So, you are able to kill them easier.
The vexes will find the nearest enemy by attacking the players, villagers, and also iron golems after they spawn. Aside from that, they will also attack wandering traders and other targets as commanded by evoker. In this case, any mob illagers will still fight the vexes even if they do not have a weapon.
Why do you attack the vexes so hard? That’s because they will be able to pass through any solid items such as walls, bedrock, water and more, without taking damage.. So, it makes them extremely hard to track and kill in close quarters. If the vexes start to attack They will also turn into the red.
What makes them so hard to catch is that they have the capability to fly through the air. They will be hostile toward it in the area when any mobs attack them. You should know that the vexes will target the nearest player. Then, the vexes will float within a 15x11x15 cuboid range that is centered on their evoker’s position. But it does not apply if they are summoned by a spawn egg or by the /summon command
