The Craicic Chimeral imprint recipe cannot be used on Fractured items, and an imprint obtained of a non-fractured item cannot be used on that item if it becomes fractured at a later time. Imprints made on an item without a Split modifier cannot be used on that item if it gains the split tag at a later time, but if the imprint is made of an item with the Split modifier, that imprint can be used.

Item acquisition

According to a datamined list, the minimum level of Craicic Chimeral was 68 during Bestiary league.[1] i.e. The beast can only be captured in Maps.


In Bestiary, the classification of Craicic Chimeral is as follow:

  • Genus: Gem Frogs
  • Group: Amphibians
  • Family: The Deep

Despite Craicic Chimeral is called "Chimeral", it does not look like a Chimeral, nor classified as Chimeral in Bestiary. In fact, Chimeric Croaker, which Craicic Chimeral's 3D model is based on, was called "Croaking Chimeral". Croaking Chimeral was renamed into Chimeric Croaker in version 3.2.0, the same patch that released Bestiary league. However, for some reason Craicic Chimeral was not named "Craicic Croaker".

The monster is in the cage of Croakers in Menagerie Depths. However, in the Bestiary the genus is known as "Gem Frog".

Like every red beast, Craicic Chimeral has 2 random bestiary modifiers. The monsters also have 3 or more other modifiers such as "Leech Life", "Extra Cold Damage", "Hexproof", "Evasive", "Extra Damage", "Unwavering", "Allies Regenerate Life", "Accurate", etc.

  • Beastcrafting was enabled in the core game and the recipes were reworked. In specific, the ingredients of some recipes have changed.
  • Craicic Chimeral is able to be find and capture again.
