Mimic Hunt

From DDO wiki
Jump to: navigation, search
Get your rewards for slaying mimics!

While the Mimic Hunt event is active, any non-raid chest opened by a character level 3 or higher can become a Mimic. This includes even non-loot ones and champion chests, and you are able to get regular loot also.DDO Forums Good places to hunt Mimics are quests that have a high number of chests and/or can be completed quickly, such as Haverdasher, Irestone Inlet, The Kobolds' New Ringleader, or Heyton's Rest ((the later only has two loot chests but also includes two chest with weapons than can also spawn a Mimic). Mimic CRs vary by quest level and difficulty. The chance to spawn a mimic is around 10-20%. When you get a mimic, your chance to get another one decreases; when you don't get a mimic, the chance increases.

Killing Mimics awards Mimic Tokens. This only applies to event mimics, not to other mimics normally available in quests. You can turn Mimic Tokens in to Glynereth in the Hall of Heroes, for a variety of prizes.


Other changes for 2017:

  • The bank deposit boxes in the quest The Stormreaver Fresco no longer have a chance to produce mimics.
  • Players will no longer get mimics from a chest after looting the chest five times. Similar mechanics like loot ransack.
  • Mimics will not appear for a character if they are more than* four levels over the effective quest level (up to six levels over the base quest level, if running on elite or reaper), unless the quest is above level 20.
  • Instant death effects no longer kill mimics.
  • The "Mimic Frenzy" event has been removed.
*The release notes state "four levels over the quest level." It has been verified that it is actually more than four levels over the quest level. This maximum only applies to the character opening the chest, characters that are over level do not prevent a mimic from being spawned and will still receive a Mimic Token if the Mimic is slain.
  • Mimic Hunt is supposed to be a recurring event, returning 3-4 times per year.

I apologize. There was a bug fixed with mimics, but the side effect is that they are using boss scaling which makes them dangerous at low levels since they are scaled like a boss at the end of a dungeon.

We are discussing whether we can patch in adjustments next week.
