Mimic chests are causing havoc in Dungeons and Dragons Online’s new permadeath server season

    
8

Players who were dipping in to the recently opened permadeath server of Dungeons and Dragons Online were likely expecting a challenge, but it appears that they got more than they bargained for this time around. Apparently the Mimic Hunt event, which makes every chest opened after level three a potentially hungry monster instead of a reward box, went live in this season’s hardcore server, and the NPC that normally turns the event off is nowhere to be found.

Player reaction to this surprise surfeit of mimics appears to be mixed, with many players on the forums lauding the change as a welcome surprise, while others are not quite so amused. Still others are trying to offer some helpful tips for mitigating mimics, but ultimately it might be good for players to team up and survive this infestation together.

Anybody remember the last mimic SNAFU in DDO where they were tuned to the strength of a dungeon’s boss mob instead of a regular mob, and players usually had to fight them right after defeating the dungeon’s toughest mob? Good times.

There are also also a number of new random champion effects on hardcore right now that any mob can become, like:

One that silences everything around, one that is immune to physical damage, one that casts a variant of fear that, if not removed before the 10-20 second debuff ends, can kill the character.

This is the most fun I’ve had in the game in a long time. It feels like the whole community is trying to figure out how to deal with it as we go.

I am loving the mimics, nice addition to HC4. I find myself jumping back from every chest I open. One ate my cleric hireling yesterday. Oh well, I can just hire a new adventurer. Now to go run some Irestone Inlet.
