An armored vindicator is a hostile mob and an armored variant of the vindicator that appears on most levels in Minecraft Dungeons.

Appearance[]

Armored vindicators have two variants, one is a vindicator that has a hornless metal helmet, gold buttons, purple pants, and wields a double axe, the other is a vindicator that has a horned metal helmet, diamond buttons, blue pants and wields a Whirlwind, in addition to being larger (2.7 blocks).

Spawning[]

Behavior[]

Armored vindicators are hostile toward heroes on sight, and rush toward a hero. When attacking, the armored vindicator raises its main hand, brandishing a double axe or whirlwind. The diamond variant has higher health and damage. While not attacking, the armored vindicator lowers its arms and weapon and looks around for threats. These illagers have a larger health pool and will hit the player repeatedly even when being attacked.

Like diamond armored pillagers, diamond armored vindicators are not stunned by normal attack damage except some artifacts and any weapon with the Stunning enchantment.

A vindicator raid captain is a powerful variant of the diamond armored vindicator in Minecraft Dungeons. They spawn in locations as a powerful mob such that when defeated, the mission has negative modifiers or a higher threat level, but the rewards throughout the mission are better. They are the most common type of powerful mob in Minecraft Dungeons.

Appearance[]

A vindicator raid captain looks like a diamond armored vindicator carrying an ominous banner on its back.

Spawning[]

Behavior[]

Vindicator raid captains behave like normal armored vindicator, attacking the hero with its axe. However, they deal increased damage and knockback. Vindicator raid captains spawn only within missions that have already been completed once, but not on all. Depending on the situation, there can be one to six vindicator raid captains in missions. They spawn with a group of illagers or illager allies around them, such as vindicator, armored vindicator, geomancer, pillager, armored pillager, mountaineer, armored mountaineer, wind caller, enchanger, royal guard, iceloger, and witch or alone, like in the patrols of the base game.

Drops[]

When defeated, they drop one of two banners, either threat or mystery. Threat portrays the Bad Omen icon and Mystery portrays a skull, and when picked up, the game is enhanced with modifiers (e.g. enemies have boost). At the end of the level, an extra item is given in addition to the artifact chest. Also, the chance for it to be unique exponentially increases for every vindicator raid captain defeated after the first.

If all six vindicator raid captains have been defeated inside of a daily trial on Apocalypse + 25, the highest power level items in the game can be collected from the raid captain chest.
