    So I farmed some of them yesterday to evolve a couple of units over the weekend and I ended up realizing something, we don't have a good consistent way of getting them. These shiny guys have become very much needed due to 7* and some OE, but we can only buy 3 a week and have a chance at getting them on Wednesdays. Do you guys think they should get their own dungeon? Or perhaps increase the amount we can buy at the Merit Shop or increase their drop rate, maybe even add them at a higher drop rate to the Level 3 Mimic dungeon since you can only get them from the level 2? Either way, I feel like we need a better way of getting them.

    Well, you can evolve Bat mimics into Metal mimics, although it is annoying to witness how reluctant dark metal ghosts tend to drop in metal parade.

    True, you can get Metals through evolving, but as you pointed out most of us farm the higher metal parade and hardly see the metal ghosts.

    The most reliable way for me is to run dark metal parade, and evolve a bunch. I think one and a half hours got me 11 metal mimics. It costs a lot, but if you're endgame-level, it's no biggie.

    Quest? Bruh. Run the Wednesday dungeon Level 2, and that'll give you 2-3 bat mimics for 20 energy (better rate than any quest maps we have). And then there's the 18% chance of catching a metal mimic, so that's cool. My record is three metal mimics in one run. Hasn't happened again in over a year though...

    I know they aren't too hard to get, but I just don't get why it's the only evo material that takes longer than the others to get :x I guess they don't want to make it too easy?

    I usually save all my metal gods from shs. Usually have 30+ and regular questing nets me around the same between shs events.

    you can always buy using merit point....
    I always evolve my 5 star to 6 star, so I need a lot of metal mimic....
    during shs, I always keep 20-30 god dark metal and evolve metal mimic......
    every Tuesday when metal mimic can be purchased from achievement point, I will buy all 3 of them.....

    Personally I evolve mine. I run Dark metal parade to get the evolve exp fodder units, and typically have bat mimics from questing during x2 exp anyways. One round of Dark metal parade can net me the mats for 20+ metal mimics (assuming I save Dark Metal Gods from SHS). I only have to do it once a month if that.

    I evolve mine, between the absolute glut of metal keys and SHS/raid slots I don't know that I'll ever run out of Metal Gods to use.

    I never farmed metal mimics... I always evolved them.. In fact, all my bat mimics comes from quests... I just save metal gods... Metal kings and metal ghost are easy to get from that regular dark metal parade....

    Because of this though, I usually have to use other element crystals/gods to evolve my dark units... Not a big deal...

    It's not that hard honestly. For non-p2p who save summons, buying 3 a week from merit shop will keep you sorted out pretty well forever. If you feel like that aint enough, buying bat mimics as well and then running one or two full-energy dark metal parades for ghosts/kings will let you make 10-20 a session easily.

    I mean in general I agree that just for the sake of simplicity they should have their own lvl4, but at the same time it's just not really a crisis, just a minor annoyance that you take maybe 1 day every few months to solve.
