I’ve been tracking my chests for a while now. As I don’t have hours per to day to just grind out E12, so what is effectively my numbers from the past year I know some people put up in a week to a month.
But since the Horde Mimic fight was introduced:
Boss Chests - 2,238
Mimic Chests - 254
Horde Mimic Chests - 11
Horde Mimic Troops - 0
The only reason I even care about this useless troop is because its tied to an achievement on Xbox and its the only one I’m still missing (until the next title update).
The achievement should never have been to “get the troop as a reward from fight”, it should have been to “encounter the fight”.
The troop should never have been tied to an actual kingdom and should have been associated with The Vault. This blocks kingdom progression for anyone, who like myself, doesn’t have luck on their side for the 3 levels of RNG required to get it.
The troop, like any other mythic should have been craftable. In fact, it should “only been craftable” and have had similar crafting requirements to Zuul or Xanathos and not be available from the chests. And based on what it is, crafting requirements should have been gold, diamonds, X amount of each Treasure troop, 1 normal Mimic troop, souls, gems, and power orbs. Essentially you’d be dumping so much treasure related items into a normal Mimic, it turns into the Horde Mimic.
If not craftable, there should have been other ways to obtain it, such as:
A) From the Gnome Room in a Deep Delve. I did a Deep Delve 4 times, once for the achievement, then after getting just a regular gnome in there the next 3 times who gave me rewards of gold, gold keys, and trait stones, I have never touched a Deep Delve since. If I had the chance to get the Horde Mimic from this fight, since its a enemy here, I would be playing Deep Delves every day.
B) As said before, it should have been a Vault troop, and thus been a vault reward. And to add to it, could only be a possible reward from an Epic Vault Key battle.
- It should not just be a random luck based encounter, where your % of getting the fight it basically less than 1% and even less to even get the troop. You should be able to work toward spawning the fight. It being completely luck based makes me feel like I am working toward nothing and am wasting my time.
Let me save up shards by doing explore runs and like a delve, once I get over 100, give me the option to retreat and not fight the boss room. Thus completing the explore run and resetting it. Instead of like now, where you just don’t fight the boss and instead go to another kingdom and do an explore run there if you want to accrue shards, but the boss fight is still there waiting for you to use 100 shards to fight it on the other kingdom.
Then put in an option that lets you spend mass amounts of shards to spawn a mimic and horde mimic fight. Save up 500 shards, then use them all at once and it guarantees a mimic fight if you beat the boss battle. Save up 1000 shards, then use them all at once and it guarantees a mimic and horde mimic fight, if you beat the boss and of course beat the mimic battle.
6)Or since the devs never do anything to actually help us unless its monetized in some way. Just release Mimic Bait already. Sell it just like you do Pet and Cursed Gnome bait.
