Effect: Creates a mirrored copy

When a Fractured fossil is used in a resonator, a mirror copy of the item in question is created, but since you have to put it in the resonator, the resonator actually re-roll the mods on the item. The mirror copy will adopt the new mod.

Basically, you're using Fractured fossils to get a copy of the item base, socket, and enchant as a guarantee. Add RNG to the new mods.

You can also roll the mirror copy "might" roll by adding other fossils to the mixture with resonators, but depending on the fossil, this can be an expensive attempt.

As a result, service providers often say they can control the results (only to a certain extent), and the items listed on the services often have the "of the best roll/outcome" potential.

They usually say it's worth it and for the cost of several Exalted Orbs or hundreds of Chaos Orbs. If you use these orbs to buy Fractured Fossils, you may make your own POG items.

There are few opportunities to obtain good mirror services. It will only list the item base and tell you exactly what you may obtain.

Fractured Fossil Use Suggestion

Do not buy mirror services.

If you have enough Exalted Orbs to buy Fractured Fossils, you can buy a desired decent item directly using these Exalted Orbs.

If you have farmed a fractured fossil, just sell it when the price is still high and use the Orbs to get something of long-term value.

If you absolutely want to use one of these mirror services, know the risk: the result mirror item maybe not you wanted.
