Notes[edit]

  • Mimic only reduces the recharge of utility skills. It does not affect Shatters, nor healing skills, nor elite skills.
  • As noted in the skill description, Mimic's recharge is completely unaffected by Continuum Split.
  • The effect will not be used when charging mantras, or when using the second charge of a mantra. Using the first charge of a mantra does consume the Echo effect, but the recharge reduction does not apply, effectively wasting Mimic.
  • The effect will not be used when casting Portal Entre. It will be used as normal when casting Portal Exeunt.
  • Using Mimic before activating Blink can make yourself a great way to escape from dangerous situations or to move faster on the map by "skipping" long distances
