Why do you do this DE? The self heat proc trick to get Eclipse buff in dark got removed with The Old Blood update.

Mirage Eidolon Slayer build by LeyzarGamingViews
My 8 forma Umbral Mirage(yes that's an Umbra forma spent) max strength build is useless now. I don't like playing Chroma in Eidolon fights or any other mission for that matter.
Mirage is already pretty squishy compared to Chroma, and getting the Eclipse damage buff itself is more clumsy than to get Vex Armor buff. You need to able to re apply heat proc again and again when you want that buff. It is difficult but more fun. I like that play style.
I really hope this was a bug, in which case please revert it.
If this was intentional, it's really a shame. I would feel the devs are biased towards Chroma. This wouldn't have been a problem if the Eidolon hunt community was more accepting towards other frames. But the moment you join a multiple hunt group, they want Chroma as DPS. The recent loot nerf (which now has been reverted) was made with the reason that 'players shouldn't feel like having forced to equip a particular frame for a particular mission'. With Eidolon hunts, people are being forced to equip the Meta frames.
The other reason I feel devs are biased is Chroma Prime was released with monstrously high stat weapons - Gram Prime and Rubico Prime. Mirage Prime - not even with her signature weapon Akzani, just got handed the short end of the stick with Akbolto Prime and Kogake Prime. Just shows how much devs care about Chroma. It's as if they want people to use Chroma in Eidolon hunts.
Let me use my frame of choice. Don't force me to use Chroma as DPS in Eidolon hunts. I don't like playing as Chroma, not one bit.
If you say the heat proc giving buff itself was a bug, why not rework her to let the player choose when to get buff/damage mitigation? She already has a pretty clumsy mechanic of having to find dark or lit places. Where am I supposed to find light in Derelict or find darkness in Void? Maybe let her create areas of darkness or light with her Sleight of Hand ability? Or at least something like Arlo's lantern in the recent Halloween event.
1. Don't blast me saying something along the lines of 'just change your role'. I am just speaking about the role as DPS.
2. I know people have used frames like Rhino, Ivara, Garuda etc to do damage to Eidolon. But then these frames come with the ability kit to do so. I don't think anyone's doing damage with Nekros or Loki for example. Of course every frame specializes in their own thing. Mirage right now is just being specialized in troll though. People were utilizing her as a DPS, but DE decides she should not, and that's my grievance.
