I went into the room of chests and they all attacked me like crazy! There are three of them. Make sure you are in a group if you are lower than level 60. The key dropped after they respawned.

OK, to settle all the dispute over this mob. It looks like a treasure chest, it DOES NOT mimic anything else. It only appears in the form of a chest, at least in The Hole anyways.

There are three in a room, located at -21.34, +231.78, -351.72. The room is down a hall which has a secret wall in it.

If you downloaded the maps from EQMaps, it will show 'Mimics (chests) caption for the room.

They will all come at once when you walk in, or try to pull.

I'm a 53 SHD, using Siphon Life, Spear of Pain, Heart Flutter, Boil Blood, and Dooming Darkness, it was susceptible to all of them. I killed all 3 with a 55 CLR, that's it.

I can confirm the approx 22 minute respawn.

The first time I killed all 3, not one key was dropped. The second time we pulled the family of 3, the cleric was killed and after a perfectly executed feign death and a invis heal, and going back to kill the last 2 chests, they dropped 2 keys. So I think the amount they drop is completely random!!!!!

Name of the building is "The Strong Box". Inside, you would be testing your skills against 2 undeads. The "A Chest" you seek, will be straight down the hall, through the fake wall, down a flight of stairs, turn right...at this point, you should have rebuffed, med to full, have your weapons ready and pet next to you.

The "A Chest"s are rather stingy with the key. Bring food and drinks lest you have to set up your camp in the hole. Oh...I do hope you have some means of getting out, or you are staring at battling your way through the ruined city back to zone in.

Where are they now?

EQAtlas has them listed at being at #11, but it doesn't look like it ever got updated after the zone was revamped. Anyone know where these things spawn now?

I went the room to with the mimics to get my cell key and found "A chest". I think they renamed all of these mobs with the recent patch. First pulled dropped the sk epic key.

I was just AEing down in the hole and the puller pulled 2 of these. We killed both with great ease. Both dropped a "cell key". Very easy with 1 group. Consisted of: 60 paladin, 60 cleric, 2 60 wizards, and 2 60 enchanters.

This part of the SK epic can be solo'd easy. Just requires a Brass Idol, sow(before you enter), and ikky/fungi tunic. These are located in the bank of the hole. Not a real bank but the sign outside says so. Just run down there and FD. Make sure you scout it out with a halfling rogue so you know the way.

No Drop??
# Dec 19 2001 at 3:58 AM Rating: Default
Snuck down and found em. Question is, is the cell key no drop? Or can 1 group sit there and camp it for all your SK friends?
RE: No Drop??
# Apr 22 2002 at 4:12 PM Rating: Default
You can definetely do this with one well balanced group. Just takes some methodical progression down to the area, but is definetely doable. Our group consisted of a Wizard, Warrior, Shadow Knight(duh), Cleric, Rogue, and Enchanter.

I think he's adding historical lore. In AD&D, a mimic is a shapeshifter that can take the form of anything. DM's commonly used them as fake treasure chests to lure suspecting adventurers.
Wanna see one?

If you want to see what one looks like and it its always there... go to Runnyeye... go to the bank there and behind the banker to HIS left is 1-2 mimic chests.
Mimics can take the shape or form of almost anything near there mass size.
In this case they are chests.

Mimics look like haunted chests in the Plane of Hate. Easy to mez and kill. 3 of them spawn in a hidden hall inside the bank in the city area south of the dock. Hidden wall is behind the left counter upon entering. Better bring a good party cause there's plenty of rock golems all over the area and could take 30mins to an hour to clear a path to get to the bank. They don't always drop the cell key though <took the killing of 3 sets of mimic spawns to get my key>
i want to see one

ive never been into this zone myself but i was wondering .... what does this Mob look like?
Never seen one
# Mar 26 2001 at 7:37 PM Rating: Default
Been in the hole quite a bit, spent some time in the ratmain jail camping for a ratman guard for my sk epic (never seen that one pop in 3 months of grind) and i've yet to see this mob. Never seen it, never seen it on track, no one I've asked has ever seen one or seen one tracked. WHERE are these things?
