Warframe Mirage Build Guide - How to Obtain, Craft, and Best Builds

Jump To

The mysterious Mirage manipulates the battlefield by using illusions, mirrors, and light, in such a fashion that makes her a very aggressive weapon that can multiply, turn objects into bombs and deviate aggro while attacking, making her very versatile.

Her Prime version also displays higher shields, armor, as well as two additional polarities. However, right now Mirage Prime is unobtainable until the Vault brings her back, so you may need to roam around the Trade Chat in case you want to obtain her blueprints.

Recommended Weapons
Since we’ll be probably using Hall of Mirrors a lot of time, a few good weapons are the projectile-based ones like Acceltra and Epitaph, both because it’s useful to handle large groups of enemies, but also because it looks really, really cool. Redeemer will serve as melee just fine, and of course, if you can afford the Prime version, the better. Use as many Forma on them as you see fit to achieve the desired builds, and you'll be good to go!

This build is an all-rounder build. In order to use the abilities effectively, you need to prioritize Strength, Range, and Duration, ironically leaving Efficiency completely unattended. This will allow you to inflict high damage in longer areas of effect, as long as you can. Explosive Legerdemain and Prism Guard will help you depending on your gameplay choice, with the former turning Health and Energy Orbs into dangerous mines, and the latter making you a turret whenever you use Prism.

For dramatically better results, and overall for a better energy economy in the build, it is highly recommended to replace the mods in the setup with their Prime or Umbral versions.
