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 game data, the minimum area level to find Craicic Chimeral was 68 during Bestiary league.[1]. The beast can still only appear in maps of area level 68 and higher.

Atlas passive skill The Hunt for Craiceann increases the chance to spawn beasts from the Deep family.


Classification of Craicic Chimeral in the Bestiary:


Despite Craicic Chimeral being called "Chimeral", it does not look like one, nor is it classified as Chimeral in the 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".
