I have killed Mimas at least 8 times now and have gotten nothing. Maybe SE altered the drop rate? I cant get anything lol.

I just solo'd Mimas with my 41/20 PLD/WAR, buffed with Protect 2 and reraise scroll. I pulled him back to the tele pad and started fight, used "sentinel", then around 2/3 of his health he used "Hundred fists" I waited till I was around 1/2 health then used "invincible" then cure3'd to full, he then use some different lightening attack from the other Gigas below, then died.

Drop Rate

I was exploring the tower with my 50 RDM just for kicks (and gil) when I stumbled on Mimas. He used Hundred Fists before I killed him but I got the Huge Moth Axe. I got excited and looked it up, only goes for 5-10k on my server. :(
About ten minutes later, I was in the big room on the other side of the cerment door (elevator room) killing another NM when I saw Mimas pop again. I hit my convert macro and pulled him through the door. Again he used Hundred Fists and I killed him a second time.

2/2 on the Huge Moth Axe.

Is this one of the NMs they altered drop rates for in one of the recent updates? If only I had this kind of luck on other NMs...

I was fighting gigas to skill up marksmanship where Porphyrion pops and I pulled a few near the door. When the Giga Torturer I was fighting was at about half of its health Mimas popped and opened the door to link against me. I tried to fight it as a THF55/NIN27 and he really didn't cause any problem when he used his 2hr at 3/4 of his health. I got the drop on the first kill and then I killed it 5 more times but no more drops.
Drop first time ^.^

My first time solo in Upper Delkfutt's Tower and I saw this...
Well I'll be honest and say that I only came to skill up my Scythe for my DRK45 and I thought I'd have a go at Mimas.
OMG it was easy ... as a linkshell mbr said as I was about to fight... Hundred Misses (You can have this) lmao
Anyway it didnt take long at all and I got the Huge Moth Axe as my drop!! nice.
I can say that you cn easily solo it with a lv.45 and maybe even something a little lower. Anyway, good luck to you all!!

Got drop on second kill. I wasn't even there for it, I wanted to get a new elevator key and Mimas was there so I killed a couple times just for fun, got the axe. Also got a like 7 lightning clusters and 3430 gil from a chest+other random ammounts from mobs. Not a bad trip to Delkfutts tower at all.
(also had to raise a taru twice while running through, he just kept getting agro I guess. One of his pt members gave me another 5k gil for the 2 raises ha)

you can kill this thing 40 times before it drops, and only having a 5-10 min spawn you can kill it a lot, drop isnt really worth the effort anyway

As a regular camper on that floor, I have to say that Mimas is usually a secondary target. Enkelados is who most people are really camping. 15K drop from Mimas as opposed to 1.8mil drop from Enky.

Also, Mimas pops every 12 minutes. Enkelados is a lottery pop.

Lightning clusters are also on my hit list when I go camping on that level.
100% drop
# Jun 15 2006 at 11:27 PM Rating: Decent
In the many days ive spent camping Enkelados ive always killed this nm just for fun, and ive always killed him before his 2hr wears off. Well tonight i was bored so when he 2hred i disengaged, sleep bolt, and turned around for a bit, when he woke up his 2hr had worn off and he used lightning roar, and i killed him. Axe dropped, making me like 1/50+. So i tried 3 more times and low and behold every time i let his 2hr wear and him ws i got drop. Could be a fluke but i felt it was worth sharing.

If you time it right and kill him before he 2hrs, you get drop too from what I have noticed.

Im gonna try your method tonight just because I'll be camping Enky anyways.

Very Weak NM. Helping with Rank 4 and hes in the way, kill him and he drops Great Axe. End up selling to NPC for just under 8k, which is the Valefor AH price for it.

I'm almost forced to believe that there really is no such thing as TH2... I just killed this guy 22 times, not a single item. Only about 100-120 gil everytime. <Hmm...>

This guy is a total riot. Sure to please any crowd around him. I took this guy with my linkshell. The battle is going smoothly, he's just using normal gigas abilities and then WHAM!

Mimas uses Hundred Whiffs!

we all busted a gut laughing as this guy tried desperately to score a single hit on the thf. Honestly watching this guy work that big axe all over the screen and missing every time is pure comedy. Thank you SE for making this clown!

Oh and the drop is fairly rare. He isnt worth the axe, but the Hundred Whiffs is a sight to behold ^_^

Helped some random people with 3-3, and after they left I went to see if I could get Mimas. I got him and the axe. I'm 1/1 on him.

I was doin Rank 3 Mission 3 w/ an LS member and it aggroed us and it missed every single shot when it did Hundred Fists, 'Horrible Accuracy'

Hundred Fists vs. Counterstance = Pwned Mimas.


I have never seen him drop, and I've killed him almost as many times as I've killed Stroper Chyme.

Mimas spawns very frequently. Like every 5 minutes or so from what I could tell.
