Mimisymbics are useable items that allow you to add the appearance of one piece of equipment to the characteristics of another piece of equipment. This new type of item gives players the opportunity to finally wear those cute items purchased in the Great Emporium without sacrificing their stats. You won’t have to use quick-equip slots to swap between being cute and being battle-ready; you can choose the look that suits you, even when fighting.

How it works:  

When you activate a Mimisymbic, a special interface will pop up, allowing you to combine two equipment items of the same type to make a new item with the sprite of the first and the stats of the second.

For example, if you want your Soft Oak Hat to look like a Pink Piwi hat, you will need to activate your Minibiote, choose your Pink Piwi hat as the skin and the Soft Oak hat for the final object (meaning that when worn, this new merged item will have the stats of the Soft Oak hat).

When you “feed” an item’s sprite to change how another item looks, that item is destroyed forever. In the example above, the Pink Piwi hat used to re-skin the Soft Oak hat will be no more. In short: don’t use your +1 MP Gelano to re-skin your Awmigawd Band!!

You can re-skin the same item more than once, however. For example, you can rotate your Sulik’s appearance every day if you want. Monday it can look like a Dora Bora, Tuesday it can change to an Kanniball Mask, Wednesday a Jellix Crown, Thursday back to Dora, if you have two, etc...

Conditions and Limitations:

Mimisymbics work with boots, hats, capes, backpacks, weapons, shields, belts, amulets, and rings. You cannot mix item skins with different types of items. For example, you can’t give a hammer the skin from a pair of boots.

As mentioned above, items used to skin another item with an Mimisymbic are destroyed by the process, but it is possible to return the skinned item back to its original state, before it was modified by the Mimisymbic.

For example, you can give a Ceremonial Cape the skin of a Gobball Cape, then later, remove the Mimisymbic and return the Ceremonial Cape to its original form.

Also, it will not be possible to skin a lower-level item with a higher-level item. This helps to maintain consistency between the appearance of equipment and their difficulty in obtaining and equipping them.

For example, you can make a Doro L. Black look like an Arachelmet, but you can’t make an Arachelmet look like a Doro L. Black, because a Doro L. Black is 129 and an Arachelmet is level 6.

Similarly, it will not be possible to associate the skin of an item that cannot be equipped without an Achievement or a particular PvP rank (e.g., a Count Harebourg hat or a Captain Amakna shield) with another item. We are investigating to see if it might be possible to transfer these types of conditions to the final re-skinned item, but at the moment the technical restrictions are too high, so we have make it impossible to use these items as skins for the moment.

Alliance shield and Guild shields are also prohibited, because of their special requirements which are necessary to give them their skin (namely that you must be in an alliance or guild, respectively). These shields cannot be used with a Mimisymbic.

Mimisymbics, like other items purchased with Ogrines or subscription, are linked to an account for two months after they are acquired. When used to re-skin an item, they apply this linked status to the re-skinned item. This means that if you wish, you can keep an item linked to your account by removing its Mimisymbic when the two months are up and replacing it with a new Mimisymbic (this process will destroy the original Mimisymbic).

Similarly, if you are using an item that automatically links to an account as a skin, its linked property will also be passed on to the final item.

For example: You use your Chapony to re-skin your Solomonk. Your Solomonk will then be linked to your account for two months. If you destroy the Mimisymbic associated with the Solomonk the next day, it will return to its original appearance and will no longer be linked to your account.

On the Heroic server, items merged with a Mimisymbic that are lost in a fight with a monster or another player will automatically be separated from their Mimisymbic, which will be destroyed.

Where can you get Mimisymbics?

Mimisymbics can be purchased with Ogrines in the Great Emporium. They will be linked to accounts for two months, but after that, they can be sold in the Pet Market. And for those who don’t want to wait, they can use kamas to purchase linked Ogrines and then hit the Emporium.

Mimisymbics will be available for testing during the final phase of the Beta Server for 2.14. If all the testing goes well, they should be available in the Great Emporium after the release of 2.14.
