Overview

Condition Mirage is a heavy condition DPS class that focuses on applying Confusion, Torment and Bleeding.

Currently it's one of the top condition DPS classes out there due to how well Confusion and Torment work on certain bosses.

This class has a medium learning curve due to the need to always finish your auto attack chain when wanting to get really nice high numbers. You also will need to learn the encounters well to be able to determine when to use your skills that apply high amounts of Confusion.

Notes

The "Shatter Sequence" is meant to allow you to:

  • Shatter twice and then replenish your clones as quickly as possible. Phantasms turn into clones, so you shatter whenever you have a phantasm up.
  • Use to generate a clone.
  • Finally use a Deception skill to generate the third clone from .

Your Deception skills are:

If you don't have a way to immediately generate three clones after shattering, you should not shatter!

Be sure to only Weapon Swap when below 50% endurance so you don't waste any of the endurance gained from . Dodge during the cast of skills so you lose as little DPS as possible.

Make sure to never Weapon Swap during the animation of as this will cancel the ambush attack.

Use off Cooldown and be sure to press auto attack immediately to remove your Stealth and continue attacking. Always try to be in melee whenever you use and for when the skill finishes to trigger the trait .

Use off Cooldown.

Be aware where you place a from each skill, as you will want to be able to access them later.
