Natural equipment

An illusioner, also known as an illusionist, is a powerful illager found in the Creeping Winter DLC, the Howling Peaks DLC and the Echoing Void DLC for Minecraft Dungeons. When spawned, the evoker boss soundtrack plays.


Illusioners are illagers that look very different from illusioners in the base game. Instead of a blue cloak, it wears a dark purple cloak and hood with dark outlines on the edges. It also has pink eyes, which makes its eyes comparatively brighter than that of the other illagers. Under its cloak is leather clothing, and it wears a belt with an iron buckle and a leather bag behind it. It also wears dark boots and is smaller than the evoker.



Illusioners have four different behaviors.

Summon blind

Illusioners cast 10 seconds of blindness on the hero. While blinded, attacks will have a 50% chance to miss and they will emit a black mist over their head.

Bow action clone

Illusioner duplicates constantly fire arrows at the hero, that deal a small amount of damage on impact.

Bow action

The real illusioner shoots a pink explosive arrow that is similar to the fireworks arrow and deals much more damage then the arrows shot by the duplicates.


After teleporting, the real illusioner will use a random attack, before teleporting and creating more duplicates.

Illusion (conjectural)

The illusioner would summon multiple illusioner clones.

Unlike their base game counterparts, these duplicates can be killed separately. If no hero is nearby when this ability is used, the illusioner and its duplicates will not appear until a hero gets close. When the real illusioner is attacked or a certain amount of time passes, all of the duplicates would disappear any and new ones appear shortly after.
