Mimic Hunt

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

While the Mimic Hunt event is active, any chest in a dungeon can be a Mimic. This includes even non-loot ones and champion chests, and you are able to get regular loot also. Raid chests don't spawn Mimics.DDO Forums. Mimic CRs vary by quest level and difficulty.

These Mimics drop one Lost Mote, which you need 10 of to turn in for a card in the Halls of Heroes. Then you combine 2 cards, much like the Anniversary Card Collection event, for a final prize item.

Once 2,000 MimicsDDO Forums are killed on the server (1,000 for Wayfinder), there should be a server announcement (but there isn't any) and for the next 15 minutes[Unverified"15 minutes" has not been verified in-game. Please verify it!] (feels more like 10) the mimic spawn rate goes up to 100%.DDO Forums (Every chest in the game becomes Mimic.)
