Bag of Tricks Vol. 58: How to Get the Mimic Kingslayer Achievement

Bog of Tricks Logo

Welcome to the latest installment of our Bag of Tricks! On some days you will find useful tricks, gimmicks and ideas here that can make life in Neverwinter Online easier. Some of the stuff should be well known, but since even veterans learn something new every now and then, chance is you can, too.

Most achievements in Neverwinter are pretty basic to get or only really appealing to true completionists. The Cloaked Ascendancy however features one that is both cool to figure out and unlock. And you literally have to fight for it.

“Mimic King” is not only the nickname of our Lead Designer Thomas Foss, it’s also a hidden boss and Easter egg inside the master version of the Spellplague Caverns dungeon. On defeat the boss grants the “Mimic Kingslayer” achievement.  First you have to  locate a “Shifting Key” which is hidden in a specific Mimic Chest and then defeat the boss, which is no walkover either. It’s a fun encounter though and we recommend to try this at least once!

The full steps how to get to the boss and the achievement have been compiled by “Xenolith666” here and here. Have fun!

Apparently there is a small mistake in the linked guide. It states that the key is always found in the first chest, which doesn’t seem to be true. We’ll try to update this post with a full map of all mimic chests in the dungeon.

    His guide is incorrect, the key can drop from any of the 5 mimics in the dungeon.
