Wearing it will increase soul gain and item discovery, but will steadily drain you health. In this guide, we’ll show you how to get Symbol of Avarice in Dark Souls 3.

Mimic Chest Locations

The Mimic Head helmet can be obtained as a drop when killing Mimics. Every time you fight one, there’s a chance it’ll drop it. Here are some of the places we’ve found Mimics while playing:

Area: High Wall of Lothric
Where to find: Spawn at the first bonfire, then go left. Go past the hollows praying to the dragon corpse and get to the tower with the live dragon. Roll through his flames and enter the tower. The mimic will be on the lower floor. If you have ranged weapons or spells that do damage, you can kite him to the upper floor, then jump onto the platform across the gap and shoot him safely from there.

If you clear out a bunch of mimics and still don’t get it – don’t worry. The game has a fail-safe for this: the last mimic in the game will certainly drop the Symbol of Avarice, if those before him do not. All you need to worry about is finding them all. To help you with that, we’ve compiled a list of all Mimic Chest Locations in Dark Souls 3.

Symbol of Avarice Stats & Description

Head of the avaricious creature that mimics treasure chests. Can be worn, if one so wishes. Increases soul absorption from defeated enemies as well as item discovery, but the curse of the branded also drains HP.

The very form of this creature is thought to be a form of brand, a punishment for sin.

Having as much estus flasks as possible wouldn’t hurt, either. On the upside, your item discovery will increase significantly, so you’ll get much more items from enemies. You’ll get more money from killing stuff, as well.
