Uhh... Is there a specific reason the Zenith Mirror is like this instead of just being more fragile? :x

So they can reflect more damage.

Yea, it's sort of a hackish way of doing it, but it works. ;)

I believe it is to magnify the damage reflected.

So the Mirror gets hit by a 1 damage attack, it takes 10 damage and reflects 10 damage back at the attacker.

I think this was done for balancing to actually make the reflection mechanic meaningful instead of not doing anything.

It also makes it more likely for things to target it.

"I can do more damage!"

is a lot like

"Herring Sandwich!  I like Herring Sandwiches!"

(if you don't get the reference, you're probably not alone)

Makes sense. At least I can ignore the one-ship abilities, since they are very very rarely present on anything with long tooltips :3

I do like herring sandwiches!

I didn't get it. :(

Substitute the word "red" for "sandwich" and you'll end up with most of the idea.
