  • - the bit of quickness makes it harder to dodge your burst.
  • - raw burst damage.


Sword/Torch

  • - stacking damage boost at the expense of sustain. Could replace either one of the sigils.


Consumables

Food

The build is well thought out and can be great in certain scenarios, but there's no denying that power Mirage is very much an inferior roaming burst option at present, which weakens this build sadly. You can absolute delete glassy targets if you time your burst well, but power Mirage cannot 1vX - it just doesn't have the required sustain nor the reliable burst of the other classes to confidently remain in a fight. It's particularly outshone by Thief and Revenant - and to a certain extent Ranger now -who all have much better kits allowing them to handle more 1vX scenarios. Power Mirage is a sub-optimal duelist option at present too. Still, I found this particular build to be decent for small group roaming as a +1 spike option and for picking people off in zergs. Not the easiest thing to play due to the aforementioned downsides of Mirage, but recommended if you fancy a change from Thief or Revenant.

Domination buffs and nerfs to other specs certainly helped recently. Has some of the strongest bursts in the entire game and the sustain is decent as far as power shatter builds go. Not the easiest thing to play and a lot can go wrong, the biggest weakness is how well telegraphed the main combo is. But that's something you only really need to pull off once. Not quite as good as some other burst builds like deadeye or longbow ranger, but it's certainly not bad either.

I think using mantra of pain can be the equivalent of running sic'em in soulbeast, it's a skill you run to get surprise attacks onto unaware players. Due to the constant ganks around the map a good solid choice of skills is blink, illusionary ambush and signet of midnight, you can substitute IA or SoM with decoy if you like stealth more, but now with the new marked buff, stealth got nerfed and using decoy most of times is wasted and it's a 40 seconds stunbreak only, far more beneficial go for IA and SoM over it. Double energy sigil is a must have, even on greatsword. Basically running decoy and the mantra you are a pug noob stomper who goes for oneshots only and win immediately or reset the fight if you fail the burst. The combo burst works only on bad players or people caught off guard, it's better to save up blink as a defensive tool instead of using it as part of the combo. Saw many mirages fail the combo burst on good reapers or warriors using blink into them, the reaper/warrior dodged everything remaining at 100% health and in one second oneshot them back because no tools left to kite.

Better than Chrono in solo roaming. Is one of the strongest classes for roaming atm, and plays an important role on the smallscale setting, keeping the enemies on the defensive and picking of squishies so that your party can capitalize on it.

Deals a fair amount of damage. I'm still trying different runes to see what's best, but takes down most glass classes in a single burst. Running full zerk as there is no sustain in this build, and plays like a thief. Either they die, or you stealth and reset. Very rewarding to play, but very glass. Plays well in zergs or solo. Portal is also a great optional skill for jukes or team play.
