    Utility Skills


    Interrupt Mirage offers high condition damage and good disruption through interrupts, despite being a roamer, it can also sidenode if needed. What makes this build unique is Power Block, which puts enemy skills on a higher cooldown and apply Weakness when you interrupt a skill.

    Knowing important skills to interrupt like a heal or elite can easily secure a kill and win a teamfight, so knowing the animations of important abilities like Lich Form or Glyph of Renewal is vital.

    Build fundamentals

    Mirage gains access to Ambush Skills, transforming your auto-attack into a different skill for a short while after each dodge. On this build, you will have access to Mirage Thrust on Sword, which will be used primarily for mobility, and Imaginary Axes while on Axe, used mainly for damage.

    Use your Dodge carefully. Dodging for damage on Axe is a bad idea that will expose you. High risk, low reward. Keep in mind that Mirage Cloak persists across a weapon swap, so you can Dodge in axe/pistol, Weapon Swap, and use Mirage Thrust. This lets you proc your Sigil of Energy and get a Dodge back quickly for another Mirage Thrust.

    On the other hand, Mirage Thrust can get a critical daze or simply get you out of a fight.

    It will be often a better choice to counter enemy pressure with your skills instead of Dodge. Blurred Frenzy is a low cooldown evade, it locks you in animation but you can use Jaunt, Blink, or Illusionary Leap > Swap during it in case you expect to get punished when you exit the invulnerability.


    Your Shatter skills will strip boons from enemies due to Shattered Concentration. You can use this to strip Stability from enemies before attempting to interrupt them. Keep in mind that this is a gamble, as what boons you strip will depend on how many your target has.

    Since this is a condition-based build, your main shatter skill should be Cry of Frustration. Mind Wrack can be a decent alternative due to its increased chance of critting and your high power stat from Carrion Amulet. Make sure you shatter with as many clones as possible in close proximity to your target.


    The main sources of interrupts you have are Magic Bullet, Phantasmal Mage, and Mantra of Distraction. Your best targets for interrupts should be important enemy cooldowns such as heals, elites, and mobility skills. Any skill you interrupt will go on a 15 second cooldown, giving you a window of opportunity to focus the target. In higher level play, try to coordinate with your team so they can take advantage.


    Your best sources of clones are Lingering Thoughts and Jaunt. Note that Jaunt will only generate a clone from Self-Deception if you have at least one clone already.

    Keep in mind that phantasms from Phantasmal Duelist and Phantasmal Mage will eventually turn into clones too, you can plan usage of your shatters around that. For example, you can Phantasmal Duelist , then use Lingering Thoughts and Jaunt for a 3-clone shatter.
