Picking the Locks – Verboten Mimic

Picking the Locks – Verboten Mimic

This brand new and mysterious boss is something different! Nothing is for sure with this one, except for the fact that it will bring up some memories of old worlds and past enemies. Grab a Gold Skeleton Key and head over to Aggrobah in Mirage. Mimic can be found in a house located in the River District.

Mimic Opening Speech

Additionally, if you require a gold skeleton key, you can defeat any of the following for a chance of getting one:

What to Expect

Unlike past skeleton key bosses, I’m afraid that for this one you’re going to have to walk in blind. The thing with Mimic is that it mimics! In the image below, you can see Mimic’s true form. It will proceed to polymorph into another form as soon as round 1 starts. 

Rank 18 Moon Boss – 40,000 hp

Verboten Mimic

 

Cheats

This is the tricky part! Mimic will keep changing forms throughout the battle until you either defeat him, or it defeats you. Hopefully the first option! 5 different and familiar forms or polymorphs have been recorded so far as you can see below.

On round 1, Mimic will interrupt and polymorph into one of the random forms below. Then, at the end of every four rounds it will change into another form. Something else I happened to notice on this boss and the other 2 skeleton key bosses is that feints don’t stack on them. Mimic has pip conversion as well.

Prince Gobblestone

Gobbler Prince Mimic

Rank 18 Moon Boss – 60,000 hp

Prince Gobblestone has a cheat cycle that goes like this:

  • Round 1: Triple Tower Shield on self + Legion Shield + Brace (+20% Resist Aura)

  • Round 2: Wings of Fate

  • Round 3: AOE Freeze (Stun)

 

Luska Charmbeak

Luska Charmbeak Mimic

Rank 18 Balance Boss – 60,000 hp

This from has the same cheats as Luska Charmbeak from Waterworks. The memories!

Only use single target hits if you have been ‘Inked!’ (have a black mantle on you). Otherwise you can use AOE hits to counter this cheat. Every other wizard that hasn’t been ‘Inked’ will have a 70% feint on them at all times.

If you use negative charms or wards (weaknesses and traps) and single target attacks on Luska or Mimic it will attack back with an enchanted version of Link. This will remove traps but not the ones that were already placed on him before he polymorphed.

 

Young Cyrus

Young Cyrus Mimic

Rank 18 Myth Boss – 60,000 hp

The boss will proceed to remove any traps that are cast or already on him. This cheat will trigger only from this polymorph.

 

Mithraya

Mithraya Mimic

Rank 18 Sun Boss – 60,000 hp

Mimic managed to somehow replicate Mithraya and her cheats in Celestia. How come we can’t do that?

The very first thing Mimic will do in this Polymorph is summon a Stellar Protector minion (Rank 17 Star Elite – 6200 hp) that will join on that same round. Also, the minion doesn’t go away when Mimic changes form. Be on the look out for some spells it casts like a star version of Loremaster and a Mana Burn that will take all pips.

In contrast to some of the other forms, Mithraya’s cheats require you to have a charm on you and a trap placed on her or else it will keep spamming -50% black mantles after every move you do. This doesn’t happen when you fizzle.

 

Ghost Dog

Ghost Dog Mimic

Rank 18 Shadow Boss – 60,000 hp

He will immediately summon his minions to join the battle. These minions can be quite harmful if left unchecked. For instance, the fire minion has Burning Rampage.

  • Hagakure Blade – Rank 17 Storm Elite – 5750 hp
  • Seijun Killer – Rank 16 Fire – 3550 hp

At the end of Ghost Dog’s first round, he will proceed to cast his infamous Death DoT, but this time he doesn’t detonate it. It’s a slow death for whoever receives it!

 

Mimic Overview

If you let the battle last too long you might end up in a very sticky situation, so I recommend caution! No wonder Mimic is ‘forbidden’. 

 

Strategy

My recommendation for this battle is to stack blades and simply have one wizard attack. Due to the fact that some of the polymorphs don’t allow traps it’s better not to risk it. Also, there is the fact that feints are currently not stacking as well. Additionally make sure that at least one wizard in the battle is carrying a shatter, whether tc or trained doesn’t matter. This is just in case you get to face the pesky Gobbler Prince.

To conclude, I suggest that before you enter the battle you equip whatever gear provides the best accuracy as you might need it with Luska and Mithraya.

    Great guide.
    But that dark red is hard to read on this background. :/

    • Cody RavenTamer

      Oh, will get that fixed right away! Thanks 🙂

      • Diogenes

        Aaah, now I can read it.
        Thanks ^-^

  • shadowlightning101

    The mimic also drops a storm ring can’t remember the name as I’
    m not on right now but i think it does 10 damage and something like 12 healing in or something.

  • Aaa

    Have any good decks been seen?

    • Cody RavenTamer

      None so far, but keep checking as there can be changes until this goes to live realm.

  • random

    storm ring is hagakure’s monsoon ring. gives 10 storm damage, 97 storm critical, tear socket, circle socket, square socket, 12% incoming, 176 health, and 48 mana.

  • Brand Ghostspear

    Ah, memories. PESKY MEMORIES! The ring drops look ok. If I’m in need of a better ring. I’ll farm there. I’ll have to remind myself of the past boss’s cheats.

  • balance mage

    what are the odds fire gives more damage that storm? :^)

    • The Power

      They’ve been doing that for awhile now. Storm gets more critical and Fire gets more damage. Just look at the level 115 crafted wands.

      • balance mage

        its been from polaris i’m just trying to make it a meme now

  • shadowlightning101

    I’m just hoping that next update they cater to other schools that have been left behind. This is all i would say about that. The drops could be better but i guess they are ok. Just was expecting a little more from a boss from the last world we are in. Also i didn’t see a no trade so i’m guessing i can just place gear on one of my other wizards.

  • Logan LegendHunter

    I am wondering about why the death ring is getting less healing stats, because the same thing happened with the death ring from sands of time. I know that death is the opposite of life, but just that “explanation” isn’t enough.

    • Blaze MeOut

      Healing stats aren’t as much dependent for death as is for life school. Most death healing depends on its hits, which focus mostly on damage boost, critical, and pierce. Only one death spell has healing, but the main point is if you loss healing, kingsisle must be trying to balance out your other stats concerning damage boost and hit-healing in the future updates. They probably gonna buff death offensively in the future.

  • Jack Dragonblood

    definitely going to be farming this boss, looks like these are a good option for pvp now too. seems they have taken the baba yaga and sands of time rings and upped both critical and damage. ill definitely be using the fire and ice ones
