Usage

Elite specialization basics

  • Dodge rolling is replaced by Mirage Cloak, which is more or less the same thing but allows you to cast skills and grants access to ambush attacks for the duration:
    for axe and
    for scepter. Ambush skills replace the autoattack of the weapons for 1.5 seconds.
  • Pressing dodge grants Superspeed Superspeed and Regeneration Regeneration (which reduces incoming condition duration while it lasts thanks to
    ).
    makes it so that whenever you gain Mirage Cloak, your clones are also going to receive it with all benefits including access to ambush attacks - it can even make your clones evade skills such as
    , denying your opponent various bonuses.
  • You can dodge while CC'd.


General

  • The build has very poor access to condition cleansing, limited only to
    ,
    and
    . Try to play it safe against condition specs: outrange them with staff, chain Blind Blind / dodges in melee, etc.
  • The scepter auto attack chain progresses if you keep attacking even while out of combat with no target selected. By using the first 2 skill of the chain you can start combat with
    for a free clone.
  • creates a new clone whenever you dodge.
  • semi-passively provides a high uptime of projectile reflection, which is quite useful when fighting builds like Boon Beast.
  • If taken
    is useful for just about everything:
    • Defense: evasion + teleport to a random location + break targeting, quite convenient when you're being focused by the enemy team.
    • Offense: free ambush attack for you and all your clones
    • Mobility: it's a 1.2k range gapcloser afterall as you'll be teleported to a location near the target.
    • While this skill does not break stun, it can be used while CC'd.
  • Besides cleansing conditions while at the same time pressuring your opponent with them,
    is also useful for boon removal/stacking in general, for example getting rid of their Resistance Resistance or stealing Vigor Vigor for
    synergy.


Damage

  • The build for the most part relies in keeping up pressure constantly by spawning clones through
    and making them unload ambush attacks via
    .
  • As the build has the Illusions specialization yet doesn't pick up
    on Dueling, your shatters are weaker than those of a Carrion build, but still more relevant than a Sage's.
    is by far your strongest shatter skill when it comes to burst damage.
  • should be used as often as possible, it's excellent for setting up burst or even evading attacks. Not only does dodging after a successful block immediately generate a total of 3 clones, but also makes them all (including you) unload their ambush attacks.
    • If you have 2-3 active clones before using Illusionary Counter Illusionary Counter you should probably shatter them before the 2 new ones spawn, as otherwise some of the previous clones will just go to waste.
    • Note: there's a small evade frame after the block which can proc
      too.
  • is easily the best burst skill in the build (if you can land it), both its direct and condition damage is quite high.


Example of a scepter/pistol burst

  1. Dodge +


Example of an axe/torch burst

  1. preferably in melee range for extra Burning Burning
  2. and dodge ~halfway through the animation
  3. Either dodge again if you have 3 clones (and enough endurance), or use

Currently used by a few of the top players NA and EU its a very strong build for duels and +ing. High damage while still able to survive thanks to teleports, stealth, blocks and everything else. Would definitely suggest picking this up and learning it

A popular and effective build in ranked. I still prefer staff though because this version of mirage is way too one dimensional for me, but I can't deny how strong its damage is.

Should refer to this as "the Flanby" build because Flanby has been using it for months. A common misunderstanding is that the build is a 1v1 build when it is not as staff is better for 1v1. Much harder to play than ordinary mirage due to no protection but also more rewarding if pulled off because of more damage that's harder to counter, also wrong utilities.
