KI has some new interesting spells for Mirage! My favorite animation from Polaris is the Nested Fury and my favorite animation from Mirage is Scorching Scimitars! Here I'm going to show you all the spells from the current past 2 worlds and explain the differences between them and which is better! :D
Witch's Housecall vs Snake Charmer!
I personally like the Witch's Housecall animation better. For damage, Snake Charmer is average as a single hit, doing in between the amount of Housecall. For 4 target, it is not high. Humongofrog can do more for the same amount of pips - 4. Mathematically, Charmer does 264 damage to 4 targets and 352 to 3. Frog is slightly better for 4, but accuracy also counts by a bit :)
Rusalka's Wrath vs Iron Sultan
Skip to 11:15 for animation on Rusalka's Wrath.
Rusalka's Wrath in my opinion has a better animation and damage. Iron Sultan's damage is pretty low for a storm spell, even if at only 4 pips. On Rusulka, it's 1352 damage and +25% or -50% to next spell for only 2 more pips. As a single hit or all hit, Iron is not your winner at either.
Nested Fury vs Sand Worm
I believe the Nested Fury's animation and damage is better than the Sand Worm's. Sand Worm is good as a single hit, but with 3 or 4 targets it is really low. Nested Fury does way more as an all. I would suggest Nested Fury to be better, but if you are more of a single hitter, then it's Sand Worm, but with all the mobs you have to do in Mirage, I would think a majority would want to use the 6 pip aoe.
Winged Sorrow vs Qismah's Curse
Winged Sorrow's animation is amazing and it's damage is better too but only as an aoe. Winged Sorrow is a single hit and does 735-1005 damage, while Qismah's Curse as a single hit is 1020 damage. As an 3 or 4 target, Qismah, like some of the other examples above and below, does not rule the park. But because Winged Sorrow is not an aoe, Qismah is the best Death has atm.
Wings of Fate vs Lllamasu
First, Wings of Fate is a better animation. Second, Llamasu is okay damage as a single hit, since it is less pips. As aoe, I am not so sure because the damage is low. 4 more pips below we have forest lord.
Snowball Barrage vs Climaclysm
If you think about it, 85 damage to all enemies is really good. If you had as many pips as the Climaclysm cost, which would be 4, it would do 340 damage to each enemy NOT divided. Climaclysm's damage divided into 4 targets would be 246. So, snowball barrage is better. I like its animation better too.
Raging Bull vs Scorching Scimitars
Raging Bull does a decent amount of damage, but costs 2 pips more than Scorching Scimitars. That's what you have to consider. For one target, it's Scorching Scimitars. If you divided that by 4 though, it would be 273. So, what's better, 273 damage to all for 4 pips, or 514-802 damage to all and minis 40 accuracy to all for 6 pips. I believe I'd choose Raging Bull for an all target. I love love Scorching Scimitars animation though! :D
I do not really like this dividing mechanic. The 4 target is really low for most of the spells. I think KI should have done their spells similar to the Polaris spells, kind of like since for example, fire got a Polaris aoe so they could get a Mirage single hit, and the other way around. This dividing mechanic is only useful most of the time for targeting one or two enemies. Plus proven by my analysis, some, not all, of the Polaris spells are better than the Mirage as an all hit. These spells don't have as much originality in their animations either. I'd rather KI stick to old spell mechanics.
Have fun questing!
