In-game description

A vexing chant is an artifact in Minecraft Dungeons added in the Echoing Void DLC that summons three guardian vexes upon use that attack any nearby mobs with a mace. Like most summonable mobs, they disappear after a short while.


The vexing chant appears as a tattered page containing illegible text accompanied by a "vitruvian man" style illustration of a summoned guardian vex. The depicted vex is distinct from an evoker's vex, possibly suggesting that one of the two spells has been modified.





A vexing chant can summon three guardian vexes that can aid the hero in defeating mobs, like most summonable mobs.

A guardian vex is a ghostlike mob that can be summoned with a vexing chant. It was added in the Echoing Void DLC.


Three guardian vexes can be summoned by using a vexing chant.


A guardian vex is a very small mob, around the size of a vex and similar in appearance to it, with the exception that its skin is a light pinkish color, has large yellow eyes, small ears, and smaller and thinner wings. They are also seen carrying a mace which they use to smash enemies.



Being a summonable mob, they attack any mobs near the hero, where they use their mace to smash them into the ground. Similar to bees or soul entities, they die after a while, but unlike them, they take constanst damage until they die, similar to the vexes from the main Minecraft game.
