Summary

Overview

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. The other issue is that your can be eaten by adds on certain encounters, so this must be managed as well.
