Utility

For the optional slot:

  • - very similar to the signet, offers longer stealth but on a bigger cooldown. Also generates a clone for some shatter/
    synergy.

Mirage patches many of the weaknesses of shatter mesmer. Making dodge work like a mini distortion which can cover the entire burst combo while also breaking stun and cleansing conditions is just amazing, even thieves are much less dangerous now. GS was little more than a gimmick only taken for one burst combo, but the (now buffed) ambush adds some solid ranged damage to it, although that's a relatively small buff it's still something. Sword ambush makes the already great mobility simply god tier.

EDIT: this just keeps getting nerfed for whatever reason.. still playable but the difference between condi and power mirage now is night and day.

The power shatter Mirage build is one of the strongest build in the PvP community, where you usually see at least 1 of them each match. It's only real weakness is its lack of condition cleanse, which makes it weak against the current meta condition Mesmer (Scourge not being a problem cause the shades can be easily avoided).

You can replace Portal for Mantra of Pain (so Mobility for extra damage) to deliver fatal blows to ennemies, mostly causing a "one shot" death by pressing multiple skills into a very short span of time. It can easily replace a Thief in a composition since the mobility is similar to the Thief's.

Some changes can be made to the traits too. Taking Desperate Decoy can add up to your survivability, and let's you charge your mantras in longer fights. Renewing Oasis can also be taken for the regeneration in Mirage Cloak, which actually helps dealing with some conditions.

All in all a very strong build that requires practice to get down to its fullest potential.

I play this build from time to time and it never fails to impress. I take Illu Ambush for optional slot and Imagined Burden for some nastiness but everything else is the same. The playstyle is very fun, nets powerful burst while being able to dodge while bursting which is tremendous. Sword ambush allows for mobility that Power Mes/Chrono lack. All in all a very powerful build... and certainly one of the overlooked ones. Its ranged damage is superior to cMirage's ranged staff damage IMO ... not to mention the might stacking is better for this build too.

Mirage provides durability and out of combat mobility that Power Chronomancer always lacked but significantly reduces the number of ways to CC a target. Recent nerfs to some of its worst matchups as well as the recent mesmer changes have made this build more effective.

The phantasm changes as well as the mind wrack ammo trait both give this build additional reach that help it in rougher matchups.
