These do indeed aggro, As you drop you will see one, they will not attack you immediatly but if you stand there too long... You are dead. I learned this the hard way.

I straight out got aggroed to the mimic the second I fell down, so it doesn't seem like you get a sparing second to escape upon falling down the hole. My 74NIN/THF couldn't take the constant, high-speed double attack beating so I had to blow up to get out of there alive.

This thing checked VT to me at 75, so it's definitely higher level than 70-75. If you're solo and don't have some warp item ready you're pretty much hosed. ~_x;

75 BLM, 75 BRD and me try to take it out solo with an entire alliance of friends just watching us. BLM thought he could race it down. We tried and died twice...but I think it's possible for it to be killed solo by a BLM, ours almost had it.

Nef, we'll get revenge, and Cowbell...I'm still laughing.


not that hard

I was exploring with Pso'Xja with two friends, and we see this. The DRK had a key, so we opened it. It aggros, RDM escapes, but we all wind up dead outside anyway. =/
at least 77+

i went there with some friends and decided to try to fight one, so stoneskin/blink up and had one of those diremite dominators as a pet (EM to my 75) and i made it aggro me and i checked it and it was VT to me as a 75 bst.

i tried to heel my pet to get to the little teleporter, but it would draw it in every 2 seconds. my pet was doing 40-50 damage while the chest was doing 110+.

so we escaped before it killed my pet.
It does aggro.

This thing aggro's on sound, so make sure you keep sneak at all times. I'm wondering that if you use an Pso'Xja chest key when your in sneak if it will still try to kill you, but I'm not testing it for another 29 lvls (then I'll be 75). I've seen a few of these around, but every time I see one there's a dead THF near it. Saw a PLD dead by it, so im guessing it might not accept the keys either. If i ever get a key, I'll make sure to post what it does to me /shiver...

I have info on it. I'm sprawled out dead in front of it right now. >_<

I had sneak/invis on, and dropped down into a new room in Pso'Xja. The chest was just sitting here. I dropped invis and tried to open it. I got a message saying I needed a Pso'Xja chest key.

Then sneak started wearing, so I dropped it and prepared to recast. The chest came alive and ate me. I had enough time to flash it and try to recast stoneskin, but it was doing 200 a hit to me (67 whm). I shouldn't have even bothered with stoneskin again, but Warp certainly wasn't going to be successful either.

Anyway, it's been 25 minutes and the thing hasn't moved. I don't dare accept reraise with it here. >_< Chalk one up to experience, I guess....

It's a mimic chest so if you try to pick the lock, then yes it will attack you. But i dont know if it will aggro you or not.
