Path of Exile: A Limit of One Mirage Archer
The Mirage Archer support causes supported bow skills to create a Mirage floating above your head when the skill is used. This mirage will use the supported skill with reduced attack speed, acting like a ghostly turret that will attack your enemies even while you move around. Every time you use the supported bow skill, it refreshes the Mirage Archer's duration. Let us look at the opinions of other people:
1) First off, it's good to get supports that aren't mandatory, gets variety in the game. But for uses, I can see a few possibilities.
Easy application for utility against bosses. CoH or Blind for sure on a 4L, Maim and Chill if you have a spare 5 or 6 link.
Hell, if you want to get freaky, you could even use it for the same utility on a caster. [[Saemus' Gift]] or [[Rearguard]] with a +1 bow (+1/+2 if you have some Path of Exile currency laying around). Opens up some opportunity for a +6 spell level without a corruption. Or even a [[Soul Strike]] and using a +gem bow for summoning, probably SRS to back up your other 6L summon.
2) The ancestor totems are pretty close to this mechanically, and Ancestral Call is mostly different in ways that make it better for melee mecahnics (you get leech and on-hit effects). I don't think we'd want to make something that works exactly the same way as this but for melee skills, because different builds having access to different mechanics helps differentiate those builds and their playstyles.
That said, we've been looking for more places to employ the "attach a monster to another entity" tech since we implemented it for attaching the Goddess to Izaro - this may be the first new use, but it probably won't be the last.
3) Say that you have 2 Bow Skills both linked to their own Mirage Archer supports. Will you get 2 Mirages firing the skills above you if you use both skills in sequence?
4) Interesting. Something to do with the spare 6L for at least ~50% more DPS overall (accounting for the gem slot and the attack speed reduction and the Increased Duration gem). And much more convenient than RAT. https://www.gm2v.com/
