You can easily tell whether a chest is a mimic#1062

V

If you have nameplates turned on, mimics don’t show a treasure chest nameplate, so you can 100% of the time know whether the chest is a mimic or not.

They’re also way too common! I wish they were rarer and dropped some nice loot when killed since they are pretty tough to kill.

This is a duplicate. You don’t even need nameplates or as someone else said in another thread on this topic, to attack them from afar to see invulnerable. Mimics are only ever the one type of small brown chest and their closed eyeball is clearly visible 100% of the time. They are super obvious and never a surprise. They definitely need improvements.

well there’s many ways to tell they are mimic chests: 1 thay have an eye with both eyelids clearly being seen, 2 your aoes can hit them and collide with them, pets sometimes used to start attacking them too. 3 their whoel chest design is slightly different from standard chests.

I have the opposite happen: mimics are tagged as Treasure Chest, while actual chests have no nametag above them.

Agreed, it’s like the problem got tackled in both ways. Regular chests now don’t have a nameplate, but mimics do. So you can still easily tell them apart.

It is easy to tell a Mimic anyway because it’s the only kind of chest that has a closed eye above the latch.

Currently nameplates are not working at all for me in any scenario. Chest mimics however, have a handy Treasure Chest nameplate above them.

This should no longer be an issue with the most recent update.
