Mirage, a warframe that was never the biggest one but yet she is one worthy War machine. There is a good reason for that, she has very good damage output and has very good self-protecting abilities. The only drawback is her area of effect because it can’t compete with the current meta DSP. But she is a very strong Warframe and when you equip her with a perfect Mirage Build, she can take you through high-level missions. She is a deceiver and uses light-based abilities to confuse and trick the enemies. Her passive is Jester’s Proficiency.
Mirage Special Abilities
Hall of Mirrors – When you activate this ability, it creates several holographic clones of her around. The holographic clones will follow and imitate her actions until the ability lasts. Each clone is immune to damage and draws the attention of the enemies. It also deals with a percentage of Mirage’s current weapon’s damage.
Sleight of Hand – On activating the ability, a light-sensitive jewel is placed at a target location while sets booby-trapping the nearby objects. The jewels will attract the nearby enemies and when the enemies come near it, they will experience an inflicting effect on them depending on the light condition around her. When you place the jewel in light, it also deals with the Blast damage. You can also cast this ability when the Hall of Mirror ability is active. As a result, Mirage’s clones will place smaller jewels next to the main one and these jewels will have diminished effects. This ability also has other trap and all of them have their way to harm enemies.
Eclipse – With this ability, she can adapt herself to the lighting conditions around her until the ability lasts. When she is standing in the light, she deals with the bonus and while standing in the darkness she gains the damage reduction.
Prism – Mirage projects an energy prism that shoots lasers in all directions. Each laser radiation deals with increased damage potential if the warframe is standing in the light. While the ability is active, it drains the energy until the duration expires. Once she gains enough energy you can recast the ability again. If you recast it, then the prism will blind the enemies around it for some time.

Hall of Mirrors Mirage Build
Hall of Mirror ability may not impress you at first try, but it gets you more DPS for each clone of mirror. More specifically when you use it with Hall of Malevolence mod, you will be able to store and increase your damage output by +50%. This Mirage Build is quite straight forward and easy to use. Once you press 1, then you can use any weapon you like and kill everything in sight. The strength ability will increase your clone damage and the long duration will help you with energy pool. Energy Siphon is not needed necessarily but, it is a very important mod that helps you to deal with the energy pool and to recast the ability. If you don’t worry about the energy reduction then you might switch it with Corrosive Projection. Instead of Constitution, use Augur Message, as this will give you extra shield regeneration and helps you to survive even in high-level missions. Vitality and Redirection are suggested to deal with low energy pool and low shields.
Prism Mirage Build
This Mirage Build is created around your ultimate ability Prism which deals with very good damage output. Before starting with the advantages, we tell you about the weakness of this Mirage build. We don’t use Fleeting Expertise in this build, and it will lead you to deal with energy problems at some point. Hence it is always better to use a combination of Energizing Dash and Squad Energy Restores.
It is important to have a good combination of all the four main stats; you need to go with a balanced Mirage Build to have better and efficient gameplay. Redirection and Vitality are again useful, but if you wish you can replace it with mods like Energy Conversion, Fleeting Expertise, or Blind Rage. Try to experiment more, and you will find the perfect Mirage Build that suits your gameplay.
Mirage is one such good and fun Warframe to play with. It has a unique skill set and a good amount of damage output. She can’t compete with Mesa or with other DPS Warframes, and this is the only flaw you could find with her. Instead, if you are trying to have a good Warframe that help out go through the Star chart then you can go ahead with Mirage. Try the Mirage Build we suggested and share your ideas too.
