Useful Info

Ravenous mimics are the most dangerous mimics to be found. They have significantly greater durability and damage output than their punier counterparts, especially as their attacks constrict and poison you, keeping you in place and dealing damage over time. Fortunately, they still can't compete with any high-level character, and are only a real threat to pure casters with low defense. They are only found in the later portions of the game.

Tips & Tricks

  • Heavy melee characters should be able to just plow through them, especially if they have poison resistance.
  • Item mimics are slower than most characters, making kiting them possible for the squishier spellcasters. Unfortunately, this does not apply to feature mimics.
  • Blinking or teleporting away can help you escape constriction if you're in a jam.
