Mimic Tear Location

Mimic Tear Boss

Mimic Tear is a boss that can be found in Elden Ring. He can also be found on our Elden Ring Boss Tier List if you want to know more about how difficult your encounter with him can be. Before getting started on this guide, it is important to note that the Mimic Tear is an optional boss. You can choose to avoid it but it will make your journey more difficult. So, it will be a safe bet to take that extra step and kill it.

There are a plethora of pre-requisites that need to be met before you can encounter the Mimic Tear boss. So before I can talk about spawning the boss and the strategies that can be used against it, let me discuss these prerequisites.

Elden Ring Ashes

This is the first step in finding the Mimic Tear Location, and getting this step done is essential as it will help you summon the Mimic Tear Boss that will start the fight. To start looking for these Ashes, you will first have to fight and defeat Radahn.

I have a guide on Cheesing Radahn in Elden Ring if you can’t beat him the standard or normal way.

Moving From Mistwood To Nokron Eternal City

Mistwood Outskirts

In order to go to Nokron Eternal City, I suggest these steps:

After defeating Radahn, a crater will appear in Mistwood that will guide you on how you can get to the Mimic Tear Ashes. Once you have reached the Mistwood Outskirts, you will have to head south until you can locate the crater. The path leading to it can be long, so it is better to use a horse to cut the travel time in half.

Traversing Through Mistwood

While traveling on this route, you will encounter a rugged rocky path. Make your way down this path until you two large boulders.

Rugged Path - Elden Ring

Jump your way across these two boulders and you will reach a narrow passageway that will you to the outskirts of Nokron and one step closer to locating the Mimic Tear in Elden Ring. Here you will see a large hole in the ground where you would have to jump.

After jumping through the large hole, you will come across a doorway that will take you to the Nokron Eternal City.

Traversing Nokron & Reaching Ancestral Woods

If you want to traverse the Nokron, I recommend following the steps below:

After making your way to Nokron, you will have to cross several rooftops until you get to a clear opening. From here, you will make your way through a series of structures until you will reach the central area of Nokron.

Once you have reached this area you will have to follow a relatively simple and straight path until you make it to the Nokron Bridge. You will encounter a few enemies along this journey, but these can be avoided as the time it takes to kill them is not worth it.

You will then have to make your way across this bridge and keep going in a straight path until you reach a cliff

Cliff Leading to the Night’s Sacred Ground

When you reach this cliff, you will have to jump on the ledge of the building and make your way through it. Once the ledge comes to an end, you will have to jump to a narrow corner of another building. You will then traverse this corner until you make your way to the Night’s Sacred Ground.

Once you are there, you will encounter two Silver Tear enemies. One of them needs to be killed to make the jump across the building. I would advise avoiding the other one as it will not impact your journey in anyway.

Afterward, you will come across a rugged stone bridge that will have to cross to make your way into the structure that contains the Mimic Tear Ashes in Elden Ring.

Obtaining the Mimic Tear Ashes

If you wish to obtain Mimic Tear Ashes, I suggest you do as I did below:

Once you are inside the structure you will see an ancient tomb. From there, turn right where you will see a narrow passageway. Here, you will you a locked door that contains a chest with the Mimic Tear Ashes in it.

It is important to remember that you will need a Stonesword key to open this door. So, before you decide to go on this journey, make sure that you have one with you. When you open the door, you will encounter a priest who is protecting the chest.

After defeating the priest, you can access the chest that will have the Mimic Tear Ashes in it.

Fighting Mimic Tear Boss

Once all that is taken care of, you can easily locate the Elden Ring Mimic Tear Boss. This optional boss spawns in Nokron, Eternal city. You can also find it on the secret path leading to Haligtree. Speaking of Haligtree, you can also use our guide to find the Elden Ring Haligtree Medallion Location.

After making your way through this secret path, you will encounter the Mimic Tear Boss. This optional boss initially spawns as a silver tear but it quickly transforms into your character.

This boss battle can be super easy or difficult determining on the strategy you use. It is important to remember that this mirror image has the same armor set, weapons, and spells as your character. So be sure to equip the correct items before spawning this enemy.

After you have successfully defeated the Mimic Tear Boss, you will receive awards like a Larval Tear and a Silver Tear Mask.

How To Summon Your Mimic Tear?

Summoning your Mimic Tear

You can use the Mimic Tear Ashes to summon your Mimic Tear. The summoned Ashen Remains will have all your weapons, armor, and spells. It can be used anywhere including an enemy swarm or a boss battle. This spell works differently when compared with the other spells in the game. It costs 600HP to summon a Mimic Tear Spirit rather than FP. So, you should always have your healing potions at the ready when you are looking to summon this spirit.

This concludes my step-by-step on how you can find the Mimic Tear location in Elden Ring. Additionally, it also covers how you can summon your own Mimic Tear Spirit.
