Useful Info

Inept mimics are puny predatory monsters which lure you into combat by disguising themselves, either as items on the Dungeon floor or as Dungeon features (such as stairs or doors). Fortunately, they are weak enough that any hero who isn't very low level or already heavily injured should have little trouble dispatching them. The biggest threat they present lies in the fact that their attacks occasionally leave you held and unable to easily walk away from combat until the mimic is defeated. They can be found on Dungeon: 1-6, and less commonly on D:7-12.

Tips & Tricks

If for some reason you find yourself in desperate need of escaping, blinking or teleporting away can help you do so more quickly. However, inept mimics are weak enough that this should rarely, if ever, be necessary.
