Haghosts are rare and dangerous Mimics that can only be fought during Cypress' Daily Quest "Haghost Sightings!" (CY0003) and during "Haghost Study" (CY0058). Their only active attack is launching parasitic Hagworms from their body and otherwise only cause damage if they run into you.
Tips & AttacksEdit
Haghosts are slow but have a strong melee attack. As a range attack, they accurately throw Hagworms at the player, even through floors. When hooked by Hagworm, it causes the status effect Drain (Skill and Stamina lowered). One should repeatedly jump to shake off the hagworm, but drain will still be in effect for one minute after the Hagworm dies. Due to a limit on the number of mimics in a room at any given time, Haghosts can only release a limited number of Hagworms if they are not killed by the player, and thus one slow but effective tactic is to wait in a safe position until the maximum number of worms is reached, and then attack the Haghost without fear of it attacking back.
Use your steam shot and chip away at it from a distance. If the landscape does not allow this, the attack/run through/turn/repeat technique can be employed, but take care not to attempt this at the moment a worm is launched, as it will immediately attach to your player.
Dodge the Hagworms and have it run at you, when it does, hit it so you take no damage when it passes by, repeat until it's dead.
Use the surroundings to attack from a safe spot when possible. When this isn't possible, you can go into a crouching position and hit it as it goes over you. Crouching will provide maximum protection from the Hagworms, and timing the whip hits properly will prevent you from taking damage as the Haghost goes over you. Combine this with active dodging of the Hagworms and this mimic shouldn't pose too great a threat.
Sprocket Information Edit
From Rare Mimics: Haghost:
- This Mimic runs along the ground. It has many parasitic Hags on its body that will leap towards any fresh prey.
First Encounter: Mimicology Duty
- Cypress gives the NG-only Daily Quest "Haghost Sightings" (CY0003), in which the player has to kill 10 to 20 Haghosts in a specific random location.
- In the Mimicology Quest "Haghost Study" (CY0058), the player must kill 25 Haghosts located throughout Steamport City and return their feet to Cypress.
Since this Mimic only appears in Daily Quests and a Mimicology Quest given by Cypress, the only way to farm it for trophies is to abandon the quest mid-way and start it over again; kills are tracked anyway.
