Elden Ring Mimic's Veil Notes & Tips

  • You can hold up to 1 Mimic's Veil.
  • You can store up to 600 Mimic's Veil.
  • This item cannot be sold.
  • AI enemies will not notice a disguised player as long as the player is not moving.
  • There is a visual bug regarding this item. Equipping either Crepus's Vial or the Black Knife Armor (unaltered) creates a visual overlapping of the model of the player and the object of transformation. This bug appears to be only visual. It may be that the bug is tied into the visual effect of the silent movement status produced by the talisman and armor piece themselves, as the bug does not occur while under the effects of the Assassin's Approach incantation by itself.
  • Another potential bug is that one of the field transformations for Limgrave is a knocked over Land Squirt.
  • If the player has inherited the Flame of Frenzy from the Three Fingers, using the Mimic's Veil will cause the player to only disguise themselves as a lit brazier. This issue is rectified if the player goes through the steps to cure themselves of the influence of the Three Fingers.

      I currently have the Frenzied Flame inherited, and my transformations are still normal. I'm not being limited to lit braziers for my transformation. Not sure where this came from or if it was patched out.

        They should add a MImic's Necklace or something that lets you take the appearance of a nearby enemy? How ****ing cool would that **** be. Needs to be a mod at the very least.

        It would be reminiscent of the mimics themselves and the enemies in the game that hide their form.

          If you're having trouble with your character showing up despite using marika's mischief, unequip your black knife chest piece

            I tried Mimic Veil on a whim at Frenzied Flame Village and got all the way to the tower without triggering any enemies and without losing HP. If you aren’t moving, the frenzied flame will not affect you. It was like the red light green light game. Tedious but worth it. Had no idea it worked with that.

              someone mentions the chest with the mimic veil as being empty for them, a reply says "likely thief.." is it possible for someone to invade my world, without me getting any notification I've been invaded by another player, who could then go and loot whatever they wanted from any chest I hadn't opened yet? I'm asking because when I reached the royal capital outskirts I went straight for the giant-crusher hammer near the ulcerated tree spirit spawn. I opened the chest but the glow you would usually see from an item wasn't there, also there was no option for me to pick up the item like there should be. I did a lot of quick travel and resting at different grace checkpoints but every time I went back to the chest there was still nothing inside it. the strange thing though was the chest was closed again every time I went to it, usually when you get a weapon from a chest it stays open if you go back there, the lid doesn't close and you don't get the option to open it again. does anyone know for sure that items can be stolen from a different player's world, while giving no indication of an invasion?

                If you use the mimic veil while you wear the Black Knife armor or Crepus vial, your character is still visible after the transformation. Hope they fix it. :(

                  the chest was already opened/empty when I got there, new player to the game I quit and reloaded several times and just finding the chest empty, someone on a youtube video said it was found on a dead body, was it changed? I am waiting for a response, could not find anything online about this

                    I have the mimics veil but when I use it enemies still attack me when I'm standing still :( Anyone know why or had similar issue?

                      Goddamn i thought it's an one use item like in previous souls games so i never used it in my 130hours... Just wanted to check where I can find more or craft them and learned that those are reusable lol

                        As of 18 Apr 2022 inheriting the frenzied flame no longer solely transforms you into a brazier when using the veil. Tested at first steps grace during pvp on PS4. Turned into land squirt.

                          the frenzy tip is false. I'm locked in the frenzyflame ending and I can still turn myself in several objects

                            I had an interesting glitch where I was immune to damage while using this during an invasion. The guy tried hitting me repeatedly but gave up thinking I was really a statue

                              Honestly I'm a little suprised I haven't seen anyone try to organize a prop hunt with this. Imagine playing prop hunt inside the raya lucaria academy

                                Kinda sucks for pvp. Only turns you into some crystals, Marinette, or statue no matter where you are. Doesn't fit in at all. Useless mostly

                                  I don't know if anyone else has this issue, but since the most recent patch, this item seems to be bugged for me. When I use it, it does disguise me as an object, but a second later my character pops into view. But it's weird because...the item I was turned into is still there, and I still move super slowly as if the item was being used? So, maybe just a visual glitch, but yeah...anyone else notice this?

                                    Given the secret you learn with the Law of Regression incantation, and the fact that the item descriptive text says that it's also known as "Marika's Mischief" I wonder if you can use that same incantation to forcibly reveal players in PvP.

                                      Played around with it for a bit after the V1.03 patch and it got some nasty decoys to pick from, matching with the area ranging from corpses, crystal formations and even the translucent wild life found later in the game. Ideal for use in areas with various floors/levels to disoriented the other player a but more while they are following your marker. People will eventually catch on to the new and inconspicuous lineup however.

                                        Mimic's veil is broken.. after using it for a while now my character shows through the disguise, and it's a server side glitch.... invaders can see me too.

                                          In case anyone is wondering this Item can be used to fool NPCs as well. If you move in front of an NPC while using the item, depending on the distance, they will stare at you before walking close to you. Provided you do not move then, they will turn around and return to their original pathing.
