Mimics are monsters that look like Treasure Chests.

Appearance[edit | edit source]

If solo, you can create some traps to help you. Keep in mind that it spawning will destroy anything close by, so build your traps approx 3 tiles away.

Mimics take the appearance of a level 3 (blue) treasure chest. They can be identified before opening as the ringing noise they emit is lower pitched than that of a regular chest, they are often faced a peculiar way (towards a wall, for example), and will wiggle and growl when the player interacts with them.

Strategy[edit | edit source]

  • Mimics generally spawn on the outskirts of zones.
  • Mimics do moderate to extreme damage when engaged, and can take a lot of hits before dying, therefore it is best to be prepared with a good weapon and adequate space to run.
  • Walls can also be built in between the Mimic and the player to slow it down while fighting it.

Rewards[edit | edit source]

  • The chest itself will turn into a mimic when damaged.
  • Successfully fighting and killing the Mimic drops presents for all members of the team and therefore it is worthwhile to fight it if you are able to do so.
