Currently the best performing Mirage DPS build. Slightly more complicated than the chaos variant but with the changes to Mirage this build now is the only viable mirage build to play in most situations.

Once you get used to shattering and playing the rest of the rotation you'll always do considerately more damage than the chaos variant. The difficulty of this build adds a new layer of fun.

Ludicrous DPS on all the fights where you'd bring Mirages and the best choice as well, outdoing Chaos except if you bring Feedback/Moa to Matthias and on Dhuum (but you're better off bringing Renegades to Dhuum anyway). Not only that, its inherent simplicity means it's very easy to get decent DPS with, however it cannot be understated there is a vast gulf between a mediocre Mirage and an excellent Mirage.
