I miss them.

I don't care about the loot returns because the event mechanics were so horrible, never mind the lacklustre rewards for the most part. And the spawn rate should be tiny compared to the event... but honestly, I just miss that feeling of 'will it/wont it try to chew my face off' when I open a chest.

Oh well. Let the hate for this suggestion begin, I guess.

No hate from me. I miss them too.

For several days after the event, I was still anticipating them. Good fun.

I didn't turn anything in from the event. But I loved the mimics even so :)

My thoughts are, if you make them super rare, they'd be more in-line with an actual D&D quest then what we have now. Any chest you open has a 0.5% chance of being a mimic.

I, too, was sad to see the mimics go. Something in the vicinity of 0.5-1% chance for chests to turn into mimics year-round would be nice. No extra loot or xp required.

Mimic remembers the Bank Heist!

and have supported this idea since it was first raised by myself and others back when it was only on Lamannia.

I miss it too. Maybe have the Mimic event drop motes of madness for Xoriat prizes and have a new and improved Mabar in October.

Bring back the mimics! Permanent 1% chance for any chest in the game to be a mimic!

I remember back in '06 when I started playing I was careful around chests because of my PnP days. But even before I realized we didn't have any Dragons in the game (Not until Vault of Night) I notice that we didn't have any Mimics.

I also would not mind that small chance that a random chest is a quest level appropriate mimic just waiting to taste some greedy looter :)

I also don't think it needs to have any additional loot or XP as part of it. But it would be nice if they are in the Monster Manual.
