This celestial booster build is great offensive support made for open-world and is beginner friendly. The equipment above is designed to be played with no modifications from the exotic gear obtained by the level 80 booster. If one does not have the level 80 booster available to them then the equipment can be obtained through crafting or purchasing directly from the trading post. This build utilizes the elite specialization of a mirage. Specifically, this build will allow you to provide support as well as maintain survivability during solo content through the utilization of clones.

Build Fundamentals

While playing mirage your dodge is replaced with Mirage Cloak, which is a very strong ability. While Mirage Cloak is active you gain powerful abilities depending on the weapon you choose to use. Your main weapon on this build for applying boons to yourself and others is the staff. You can maintain permanent 25 Might, Fury, and permanent Alacrity. This build uses Superior Sigil of Energy to gain endurance when swapping weapons for additional dodges.

Clones and dealing damage
You gain clones by using Phase Retreat and Phantasmal Warlock Your clones are your main source of damage, so you want to maintain three clones as much as you can. Clones also gain Mirage Cloak while you dodge. To get the most out of your clones try to not interrupt their actions. You can achieve that by doing 2 actions yourself before dodging.

While your clones are very powerful, you want to use shatters for damage, crowd control, and invulnerability. For damage, you want to shatter Cry of Frustration with three clones and then quickly regain them back with Phase Retreat and Phantasmal Warlock. This is going to be your burst rotation.

Survivability
Your survivability mainly comes from using your clones as a distraction, the ability to dodge whenever, and being able to maintain almost permanent RegenerationVigor, and Protection because of Renewing OasisNomad's Endurance and Mirage Mantle. Using Chaos Storm and Method of Madness gives you Resolution, Swiftness, and Aegis. While you have Chaos Armor active you have a chance of gaining additional Protection and Regeneration when hit. When shattering you gain Stability via Bountiful Disillusionment. Jaunt is an instantaneous condition removal and short-range teleport. False Oasis creates a mirror on the spot you used your heal on. Mirage Mirror provides an additional dodge that you can use to trigger Mirage Cloak.

You want to start on staff and spawn three clones using Phantasmal Warlock and Phase Retreat while giving yourself as many boons as you can weaving in Mirage Cloak between auto attacks using your burst rotation whenever Cry of Frustration is off cooldown.
