The Chimpanzee minion can be purchased for 400 Faux Leaves, the currency earned from playing Faux Hollows. Faux Hollows is a mini-game structured like a Battleship that challenges you to beat Unreal Trials, trials from past expansions that have been upscaled to level 90.

Completing Unreal Trials will allow you to play Faux Hollows with the Faux Commander. By uncovering illustrations on the Faux Hollows board, you’ll receive Faux Leaves, which can then be exchanged for prizes, like the Chimpanzee minion.
