Coaltosser Growth (quest)
|Notes:||Inflicts the Burned status effect upon contact with the player, or upon throwing coal at the player.|
|XP per Health:||0.025|
Coaltossers are quest-only mimics that can only be found during the Daily Quest "Coaltosser Sightings" (CY0003) and in Ridgeback Highlands during the Mimicology Quest "Coaltosser Study" (CY0053). They are similar to the Pustosser, although Coaltossers have more health and attack, as well as the ability to inflict the Burned status effect on the player.
Tips & AttacksEdit
A Coaltosser attacks by throwing a piece of coal at the player. The coal arcs into the air, making it easy to dodge if you are paying attention. Remember, Coaltossers' gray coals can travel through walls. Their throws will always be aimed at the player at the time it releases the coal. This means the player can usually move left or right to dodge the attack. At farther ranges, the arc is straight and the coal travels fast, making it nearly impossible to dodge. This is sometimes referred to as a Death Throw, a characteristic shared by Pustossers.
Run up close and fire, then run away to dodge the coal (which will be launched upwards in an arc). Shooting from further away makes it harder to dodge the coal, as its trajectory will be straighter.
Get very close to the Coaltosser and attack it as many times as possible before it throws coal. When it does, take a few steps back, or backdash out of the Coaltossers range. Once it has been destroyed wait until it throws all three pieces of coal/orbs, and once they have landed, retrieve your prize.
Run close to the Coaltosser and hit him twice. When he attacks run backwards, then attack him again. Alternately, you can swing into him and attack him quickly at higher levels to save time.

- This fiery relative of the Pustosser hurls burning growths at any intruder in range.
First Encounter: Mimicology Duty
- Cypress gives the quest "Coaltosser Sightings!" (CY0003), in which the player has to kill 25 Coaltossers.
- In the Mimicology Quest "Coaltosser Study" (CY0053), the player must collect 25 Coaltosser Growths from Coaltossers in the Ridgeback Highlands.
Trophy Farming Edit
- Since this mimic only appears in a daily quest given by Cypress, the only way to farm it for trophy is to abandon the quest middle-way and start it over again; kills are tracked anyway.
