Elden Ring Mimic Tear Location Walkthrough

In this guide, we will show you how you can find the Elden Ring Mimic Tear Location, the most powerful summon in the game, at least that was the case before patch 1.03

What Is A Mimic Tear 

Mimic tear also known as Stray Mimic Tear when you fight at the hidden path leading to Hallig Tree is a boss you face in Elden Ring. The boss is found at multiple locations in the game and when you fight him it will be a Mirror Match since he produces copies of your equipment and appearance. Therefore you will be fighting yourself in the battle. 

  • Elden Ring allows players to summon unique spirit ashes to aid them in combat and one of them includes the highly popular, Mimic Tear.
  • Mimic Tear can originally be fought as an optional boss who is located in the underground location of Nokron, Eternal City.
  • The Boss Fight version will essentially have a mirror loadout as the player character so before players walk into the arena, they can strategize on how to make it easier.
  • Players can find the Ashen Remains of Mimic Tear in the same location but by following a different route which can unlock after defeating Starscourge Radahn.
  • The detailed route should be simple enough as it can be collected from a chest located in the areas of Nokron, Eternal City.

However, he is an optional boss and you don’t need to defeat it in order to progress the main story of Elden Ring. But if you are looking to farm some Runes and get useful items for the main boss battles, we recommend that you fight the Mimic Tear boss.

Originally, he will spawn in as a Silver Tear and then eventually transform into your character. Not only will he have the same equipment and weapons but he will also use the same spells and incantations to fight you. 

The boss is mandatory if you want at least one ending while the Stray Mimic Tear is an optional boss that will not affect your ending. He is one of the Great Enemy class bosses. You can also play Multiplayer mode when fighting the boss. In order to get some help, we recommend that you summon Spirit Ashes when fighting the boss.
